A Decade Ago Quotes

As a matter of fact, we are wired for connection. Its in our biology. From the time we are born, we need connection to thrive emotionally, physically, spiritually, and intellectually.

really. We spent all of about thirty minutes together
nearly a decade ago. Still, I think the Kyle Rhodes
who walked me home and gave me the shirt off his

he was at my office. So if that guy is hanging around
this penthouse anywhere, tell him to call me.

— Margaret Thatcher
