“I think above all else. At the end of the day, the character of a person matters the most.

“An intimate relationship does not banish loneliness. Only when we are comfortable with who we are can we truly function in a healthy way. Two halves do not make a whole when it comes to a healthy relationship: it takes two wholes.”—Patricia Fry. (via blindthoughts)

What I’m saying is that we’re due for a tree talk, Kate.
