"It’s the time that you have wasted for your rose that makes you rose so important." — Antoine de Saint-Exupèry, The little prince
“There are so many brief encounters between strangers every day. It’s like there are tiny invisible threads connecting every single human being at any given moment in time, and sometimes those threads reel two people in to one another, and they end up living together or marrying.
But then other times the threads stretch and pull apart, and the two strangers go their separate ways, never to meet again. They could have married or been friends or had lives together, but now their chance is gone.
And sometimes those threads even break, and these two people have done irreparable damage to one another that they can never reverse.
What a beautiful, terrifying, tragic thought.
And who knows? Maybe we’ve seen each across the street, just like you said. But we’ll never know.” —Meggie Royer
"…oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have…" —to a friend

" He cried that night for all that he had lost, but he would say it taught him a valuable lesson: that holding on to things ‘will only break your heart’ " •
