"No matter how thick skinned we try to be, there's millions of electrified nerve endings in a kiss...open and exposed...and feeling way too much...Try as we might to keep from feeling pain, sometimes is just unavoidable. Sometimes that's the only thing left...just feeling."
"Love is patient, Love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast.
It is not proud, it is not rude.
It is not self-seeking, it is not easily anger.
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil,
But rejoices with the truth.
It always protects. Always trusts.
Always hopes. Always perseveres.
Love Never Fails." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
End of part twelve"When do you throw in the towel, admit that a lost cause is sometimes just that? There comes a point when it all becomes too much...when we get too tired to fight anymore... so we give up...that's when the real work begins...to find hope where there seems to be absolutely none at all!"
