A tribute to Jonathan Safran Foer

“I love you also means I love you more than anyone loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that no one loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that I love no one else, and never have loved anyone else, and never will love anyone else.”

(On airports) “I like to see people reunited, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.”

“Why didn’t I learn to treat everything like it was the last time. My greatest regret was how much I believed in the future.”

“I regret that it takes a life to learn how to live.”

“I think and think and think, I‘ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.”

-Jonathan Safran Foer
