“Too late, I found, you can’t wait to become perfect. You got to go out and fall down and get up with everybody else.”

-Charles Halloway in Something Wicked This Way Comes, by Ray Bradbury

“Romance is not being all starry eyed but an understanding that neither of us is perfect, and a willingness to put up with those imperfections.

“So here we are forty seven years later, still romantically involved, still forgiving each others faults and still trying the best we can to ensure our relationship endures.”

-Len, “Love and Marriage,” Len’s Daily Diary
