“Here’s what he doesn’t know yet. I disappear into the person I love. I am the permeable membrane. If I love you, you can have it all. My money, my time, my body, my dog, my dog’s money…. I will assume your debts and project upon you all sorts of nifty qualities you’ve never actually cultivated in yourself. I will give you all this and more… until I am so exhausted and depleted, the only way I can recover is by becoming infatuated with someone else….” – from Eat, Pray, Love.
