❝ You must learn her. You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to. You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept. And, this is how you keep her.
You can ask the universe for all the signs you want, but ultimately, we see what we want to see when we’re ready to see it.

❝ You don’t need religion to have morals. If you can’t determine right from wrong, then you lack empathy, not religion.
