“The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that’s not the one. When you meet your ‘soul mate’ you’ll feel calm. No anxiety, no agitation.”

“Flight attendant announcements are one of the cruel and unusual punishments of modern life. But tucked inside those 5 minute soul-suckers is some genuine advice and I listen for it every time. Somewhere between seat belts and life vests, the flight attendant says that oxygen masks will fall from above if cabin pressure is lost. The next sentence is crucial: if you’re sitting next to someone who needs assistance, put your own mask on before helping them. This isn’t because of some misguided sense of selfishness or self-preservation. It’s because if you lose consciousness from a lack of oxygen, you can’t help anyone else. It’s advice I take into every aspect of my life. Put your mask on first. What that means is up to you.”

And when you choose a life partner, you’re choosing a lot of things, including your parenting partner and someone who will deeply influence your children, your eating companion for about 20,000 meals, your travel companion for about 100 vacations, your primary leisure time and retirement friend, your career therapist, and someone whose day you’ll hear about 18,000 times.

Intense shit.
