Don’t beg anybody for anything, especially love.
Could you really love somebody who was absolutely nobody without you? You really want somebody like that? Somebody who falls apart when you walk out the door? You don’t, do you?
To get to a place where you could love anything you chose, not to need permission for desire, well now that was freedom.
Love is divine only and difficult always. If you think it is easy you are a fool. If you think it is natural you are blind.
Something that is loved is never lost.
- Toni Morrison
