I started my life with a single absolute: that the world was mine to shape in the image of my highest values and never to be given up to a lesser standard, no matter how long or hard the struggle." — Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged)
It actually hurts a bit, to know how much I want to be with you, how much I want to take care of you. It hurts a lot when I am ready to sacrifice, but you’re not going to reciprocate. I want to feel as much love as I give you too. Do you know that?
