  4. “When people show you who they are, believe them.”
  5. “I am grateful to have been loved and to be loved now and to be able to love, because that liberates. Love liberates. It doesn’t just hold—that’s ego. Love liberates. It doesn’t bind. Love says, ‘I love you. I love you if you’re in China. I love you if you’re across town. I love you if you’re in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you. I’d like to have your arms around me. I’d like to hear your voice in my ear. But that’s not possible now, so I love you. Go.'”
  6. “Love is like a virus. It can happen to anybody at any time.”

  9. “I know for sure that love saves me and that it is here to save us all.”
  10. “Loving someone liberates the lover as well as the beloved. And that kind of love comes with age.”
  11. “First best is falling in love. Second best is being in love. Least best is falling out of love. But any of it is better than never having been in love.”
  12. “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
