I mean, you tell yourself that, of course, it's not going to be wine and roses and all of that bullshit for the rest of your life, but then, one day, you wake up, and your fucking husband has morphed into someone whom you barely recognize. And you sit there and you stare at him while he scratches his balls through his underwear at the kitchen table, and you think, 'This is totally not what I signed up for. I mean, who knows if I even love this ball-scratching, foul-breathed man?' And then you wonder if you love him more out of habit than out of anything else."

Vicky became more serious and her tone more reflective as she remarked, Life has so much pain that one needs a catharsis. I don't mean escape. You don't escape in books.

"
"Then, no I'm not."
"That lake was three hops ago," he said impatiently.

I need you so much that I cannot quite contemplate the rest of my life if it must be lived without you. I need you so much that-Well, the words speak for themselves. I need you."

It is important that you get clear for yourself that your only access to impacting life is action. The world does not care what you intend, how committed you are, how you feel or what you think, and certainly it has no interest in what you want and don't want.

— Werner Erhard

Think of this life; but, for my single self,
I had as lief not be as live to be
In awe of such a thing as I myself.

— William Shakespeare
