"If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you." --- Winnie the Pooh I love the passage where the Skin Horse tells the Velveteen Rabbit about how one becomes real by being well loved. "It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen to people who break easily or have sharp edges, or have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off and your eyes drop out, and you get loose in the joints and very, very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real, you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand." The Velveteen Rabbit When you are old and grey and full of sleep, And nodding by the fire, take down this book, And slowly read, and dream of the soft look Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep; How many loved your moments of glad grace, And loved your beauty with love false or true, But one man loved the pilgrim Soul in you, And loved the sorrows of your changing face; And bending down beside the glowing bars, Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled And paced upon the mountains overhead And hid his face amid a crowd of stars. Wm Butler Yeats "It’s true love because If he said quit drinking martinis but I kept on drinking them and the next morning I couldn’t get out of bed, He wouldn’t tell me he told me." Judith Viorst
