Look at this butterfly, so beautiful, so delicate.
I can enjoy this butterfly from a distance,

even away from the attentions of those
with whom they are most bonded.

Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious
as to have friends at a distance;
they make the latitudes and the longitudes.
- Henry David Thoreau

Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.
True love is about wanting happiness for the person you love -
and not about seeking happiness for yourself.
Fortunately, in most cases our own loving presence
is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The man who says he is willing to meet you halfway
is usually a poor judge of distance.
- Laurence J. Peter
