Jeannette Winterson on marriage:  I promise to look at you and always see you.  I promise to listen to you, even when you say things I don’t   want to hear.

I promise to treat you like a Jewish princess.  With my body, with my mind, with my heart, with my   imagination, I promise to love you for as long as I live.

Jeanette Winterson, The PowerBook  You sort of sew them together again. They might never be the same, but at least they’re back one. And then you wait—God knows how long—until you forget that your heart is hanging by a thread. Ironically, at that moment, you’ll be ready to split your heart into two again, but that’s just how love is.
