1. "Think of that person you knew when you were a kid, who you always thought you could have loved completely and forever.Well, you could have. It's the truth, and it's the saddest and simplest thing. There isn't just one person for each of us in the world.

And it doesn't make a difference if you're thirteen or ninety- eight because some things you feel are real, no matter when."
