"To go to bed and to wake up again day after day beside a woman, to lie in bed with our arms around each other and drift in and out of sleep, to be with each other — not as a quick stolen pleasure, nor as a wild treat — but like sunlight, day after day in the regular course of our lives […] I cried to think of how lucky we both were to have found each other, since it was clear that we were the only ones in the world who could understand what we understood, in the instantaneous manner in which we understood it. We both agreed ours was a union made in heaven, for which each of us had already paid several hells."

"If two points are destined to touch, the universe will always find a way to make the connection - even when all hope seems to be lost. Certain ties cannot be broken. They define who we are - and who we can become. Across space, across time, among paths we cannot predict - nature always finds a way."
