  1. “Music is a total constant. That’s why we have such a  strong visceral connection to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person.

  2. “No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences.

  4. “A man of my acquaintance once wrote a poem called “The Road Less Traveled”, describing a journey he took through the woods along a path most travelers never used.

Sure enough, that poet is dead.”
