From a very good friend…
“They’d lied to me and betrayed me, leaving jagged edges where all my trust had been, and I didn’t like or respect or admire them any more, but still I loved them. I had no choice. You can’t kill love. You can’t even kill it with hate.”
— G.D. Roberts (Shantaram)
Interestingly, someone gave me the book ‘Shantaram’ a year or two back when I was living in Boulder after telling me how amazing it was. Sadly I never actually opened it to read it. But now I think I will.
