“Things just happen and we have to accept them. Happiness and sadness are for people who can control what happens to them.”
Anuk Arudpragasam, The Story of a Brief Marriage

“What it would be like to be separated from all these things he did not know, he could not envision, but the more he dwelled on it the more he understood that it was not so much fear of being separated that he felt as sadness at the idea of parting.”
Anuk Arudpragasam, The Story of a Brief Marriage

“Being close to someone meant the entire rhythm of that person’s life was synchronized with yours, it meant that each body had learned how to respond to the other instinctually, to its gestures and mannerisms, to the subtle changes in the cadence of its speech and gait, so that all the movements of one person had gradually come to be in subconscious harmony with those of the other.”
