love

“A person learns how to love himself through the simple acts of loving and being loved by someone else." -- Haruki Murakami, 1Q84 [I read 1Q84 a few years ago, but this quote rings true in light of recent conversations, so I wanted to remember it by putting it here.

The biggest coward of a man is to awaken the love of a woman without the intention of loving her. ~ Bob Marley
