I exist as I am, that is enough, if no other in the world be aware I sit content, and if each and all be aware I sit content. One world is aware, and by far the largest to me, and that is myself, and whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years, I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness I can wait.
— Walt Whitman
"One plus one minus one. It’s terrifying to know that love cannot be undone. Follow the flower all the way to dirt. There’s only one way out, and it’s gonna hurt."
