I was sitting in the break room at work today and apparently I had this really dopey looking smile on my face and one of my coworkers leans over and says “I know that smile. You’re thinking about your crush aren’t you? I’ve been married 36 years, I can tell.”

“Being in love is a good thing, but it is not the best thing. There are many things below it, but there are also things above it. You cannot make it the basis of a whole life. It is a noble feeling, but it is still a feeling. Now no feeling can be relied on to last in its full intensity, or even to last at all. Knowledge can last, principles can last, habits can last; but feelings come and go.”—C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity (via autobibliography)

“What will NY152 say today, I wonder. I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You’ve got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you.”—Kathleen Kelly, You’ve Got Mail (1998)
