If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation.
~OSHO, author of Love, Freedom, Aloneness: The Koan of Relationships
1. You will never find the right person.
Such a creature doesn’t exist.
2. You are irredeemably alone.
You will not be understood.
The moments of love were an illusion.
There’s something wrong with you. And with everyone else.
The idea of love distracts us from an existential loneliness.
Now let’s pretend we don’t know any of this.
