Love itself dreams of more than mere possession; to conceive happiness, it must conceive a life to be shared in a varied world, full of events and activities, which shall be new and ideal bonds between the lovers.
"This is the best of all possible worlds." What childish optimism. Not everything is "necessarily for the best end." People and animals don’t get what they deserve. They get what they get.
I am twenty-five and already so unknown.
+The Ninth Doctor
Every now and then, a little victim’s spared. Because she smiled, because he’s got freckles, because they begged. And that’s how you live with yourself. That’s how you slaughter millions. Because once in a while, on a whim, if the wind’s in the right direction, you happen to be kind.
+F. Scott, Tender is the Night
I don’t ask you to love me always like this, but I ask you to remember. Somewhere inside me there’ll always be the person I am to-night.
