have you given your cat a name yet?

You know what's wrong with you, Miss Whoever-You Are?
You're chicken,
you've got

You're afraid to stick out your chin and say,
"Okay, life's a fact,
people do fall in love,
people do belong to each other,
because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness."

You call yourself a free spirit,
a wild thing, and
you're terrified somebody's going to stick you in a cage.
you're already in that cage.

You built it yourself.

And it's not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somalia.
It's wherever you go.

Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.

--Paul Varjak, Breakfast at Tiffany's

Love is about belonging to each other.

Love is about you taking me and me taking you and us being fiercely loyal to each other.

I will fight for your happiness like mine depended on it,

because it does.
