"It's hard convincing yourself that where you are at the moment is your home, and it's not always where your heart is. Sometimes I win and sometimes not."
-- Jonathan Carroll
Emily Johnston
I had once thought strength of character was a hardening of oneself; an intricate protection system by which you reconciled yourself to the truths of life and learned not to let them bother you. But all systems of character building go right out of the window when you find there aren’t anymore truths … or none you recognize.

Tartelette: Finding Comfort: Poached Pears with Sumac and Creme Fraiche
There are not many things we can wish for in life that actually come true with any regularity but what we can wish for is to be laughing hard with a partner of many years when we’re old. Or to be sitting together when you’re old and eating big ice cream cones.
Jonathan Carroll
She knew he possessed a quality few males do. It was an instinctive thing that most of the men who had it didn’t even know was there. Yet it was the most formidable part of their arsenal: They made you feel totally comfortable when you were together with them. On the street, in bed, having lunch, having sex, having a laugh, a walk or whatever— it didn’t matter. You breathed normally with them. You didn’t feel any need to put on airs or puff out your chest or pretend to be someone you weren’t. Yes, this fellow wanted to be in your pants, but he also wanted to be in your head and hang around together sharing the day. You felt that whenever you were with him. You were certain you were exactly where he wanted to be at that moment. The things you said or did genuinely interested him.
