Have you even been in love? Horrible, isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up this whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...
- Neil Gaiman


The little unremembered acts of kindness and love are the best parts of a person's life.

Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.
