“Because two people in love don't make a hive mind. Neither should they want to be a hive mind, to think the same, to know the same. It's about being separate and still loving each other, being distinct from each other. One is the violin string one is the bow.”
Graham Joyce

“There is no "mid" about it. Life is a crisis from the cradle to the grave.”
Graham Joyce, How to Make Friends with Demons

“The trouble with forgiveness is that some people don't want to be forgiven.”
Graham Joyce, How to Make Friends with Demons
