"A long-lived relationship is about so many things. It is such a dense and complex process — always a process — and it’s not to be summed up. It’s not to be turned into some kind of vignette. If we are serious, we also have to recognize that even the longest and richest and densest relationship must end, and we see it around us. We see it in that inevitability of time’s power, if you will."
I’d be afraid to have appliances in my house after I read this, just in case I have an unusual attraction to my toaster or something. ;)
If loving my toaster is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
