I realize I don’t know very much. None of us knows very much. But we can all learn more. Then we can teach one another. We can stop denying reality or hoping it will go away by magic.
Octavia E. Butler

After a year and six months, it's no longer me that you want. But, I love you so much it hurts. Never mistreated you once; I poured my heart out to you. Let down my guard, swear to God.

The desires of the heart are as crooked as corkscrews Not to be born is the best for man The second best is a formal order The dance's pattern, dance while you can. Dance, dance, for the figure is easy The tune is catching and will not stop Dance till the stars come down from the rafters Dance, dance, dance till you drop.
W. H. Auden

My hair grows and grows; you cannot stop it - that fellow grows, it grows wild.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain.

Our D-I-V-O-R-C-E becomes final today. Me and Little Joe will be going away. I love you both and this will be pure H-E double L for me. Oh, I wish that we could stop this D-I-V-O-R-C-E.
