“The most important thing in all human relationships is conversation, but people don’t talk anymore, they don’t sit down to talk and listen. They go to the theater, the cinema, watch television, listen to the radio, read books, but they almost never talk. If we want to change the world, we have to go back to a time when warriors would gather around a fire and tell stories.”
Paulo Coelho

“When you love someone, you’re capable of more than you know.”
Faith Sullivan, Hold Me Tight
