"The worst part was that you loved me. You loved me so much, more than anything or anyone you’d ever loved before. But not as much as I’d loved you. Never as much as I’d loved you."
"A strong man can handle a strong woman. A weak man will say she has an attitude."
"You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free."
"You never get over it. But you get to where it doesn’t bother you so much."
