Perhaps the depth of love can be calibrated by the number of different
selves that are actively involved in a given relationship.

Absolute certainty is a privilege of uneducated minds-and fanatics. It
is, for scientific folk, an unattainable ideal.

Eres un barco en el mar de emociones donde la mente y el corazón son
el timón y el motor de tu vida; la muerte es tu destino, el amor tu
capitán y deseo con toda el alma que tu viaje sea emocionante, lleno
de aventuras y que dure muchos años.
