Her heart sank into her shoes as she realized at last how much she wanted him. No matter what his past was, no matter what he had done. Which was not to say that she would ever let him know, but only that he moved her chemically more than anyone she had ever met, that all other men seemed pale beside him.
F. Scott Fitzgerald, A New Leaf  
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards… So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future… you have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever … Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well worm path; and that will make all the difference…
Steve Jobs
I hope you miss me, though I could scarcely (even in the cause of vanity) wish you to miss me as much as I miss you, for that hurts too much, but what I do hope is that I’ve left some sort of a little blank which won’t be filled till I come back. I bear you a grudge for spoiling me for everybody’s else companionship, it is too bad.
Vita Sackville-West in a letter to Virginia Woolf, 31 January 1927
