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