love is balance

June 9, 2012

We may not be perfect, but we are perfect for each other.
The Chinese say that love is balance.
He is the water to my fire. The chimpanzee to my bonobo.
And when I am mired in life’s ugliness,
when I can only see what is decaying both inside and outside my own head,
he is the blindness I need, the mindless faith in happy endings.
—Vanessa Woods, Bonobo Handshake
