It was love for you that set me afire.

I want to love all of my life as much as I love this night.

—Christina Lauren, Sweet Filthy Boy (via quoted-books)

Rilke said a great thing about how when you are young, you perceive a relationship as a fusion. When people come together too young, they try to become one person. As you get older, you realize that you don’t want to become one person because then you lose the person you are. Rilke’s whole idea was that a good relationship is two people who stand guard at the gates of each other’s solitude or singularity.

—Ed Norton
