- That we all yearn it, yet it is difficult to learn to be loved.
- That we all hope it would last, yet it does not last in its current form.
- That we might make mistakes, yet it grows into something deeper or it falls apart.
- That we think it completes us, yet it is acts as a projection of our self onto another.
- That for small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love. (from Carl Sagan’s novel Contact)
