How do I love thee?

How do I love thee?

You will have to tell me-

As I only know how to count my ways.

(Browning would understand.)

Intimacy is more than the act of pleasure.

We are lucky if we find someone that little interesting.

You can’t let the shit of collective baggage terrify you.

*******************************************************

“How different things might be if, rather than saying “I think I’m in love,” we were saying “I’ve connected with someone in a way that makes me think I’m on the way to knowing love.” Or if instead of saying “I am in love” we say “I am loving” or “I will love.” Our patterns around romantic love are unlikely to change if we do not change our language.”
― Bell Hooks, All About Love: New Visions
