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.

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
