"it is not that one person cannot satisfy our needs, but that with each person we create a new set of needs. this is one way we can tell that we have found a new person. couples make appetites together; this is the calling of coupledom. each new person shows us that there is something else to want, but usually in the guise of someone else to want. seduction, the happy invention of need."
for valentine’s day, my favorite adam phillips quote of all time.
