is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.

is now in my life causes an ever greater abundance
to flow in my direction.

Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
- Robert Heinlein
