"What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you will do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything."
"Always find time for the things that make you feel happy to be alive."

"For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It is a person. And we are finally home."
