    When we fall in love with someone there's a

    moment when we take a picture of that person, an emotional snapshot, that we carry with us forever. If we're lucky, if we're very, very lucky, the person we fall in love with will always resemble that snapshot. Jim Geoghan,

    They would be worthless

    if i keep it to myself. Not all people would like to problematize things, those are the most common. But sharing thoughts with the right people is what makes human evolution (ideologically) possible.
