Sometimes you need to remind yourself that you were the one who carried you through the heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up. You are the one who feeds it, who clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to take care of yourself when everyone around you is trying to bleed you dry, that is the strongest thing in the universe.
Beat couple you’ve ever seen
JOHN STOCKTON, ON MEETING KARL MALONE:
"He’s just a country kid, and we’re in Salt Lake and I’m just a year into it [his career]. I said to him, ‘We could drive up into the mountains, that’s gorgeous. Or maybe we could…go to the zoo?’ And he said, ‘Zoo? Sounds good. Let’s go.’ So we had a beautiful afternoon there. Pretty peaceful.
He wasn’t very recognizable at that time and I certainly wasn’t and we walked all around the zoo unaccosted and enjoyed the day looking at the animals. We’ve been best of friends ever since. He’s a good man from a completely different area than I was and we both felt completely at ease talking to each other. It’s a relationship I’ve been really proud of for the past 30 years.”
The best part of having a relationship is getting to call the person or lay down next to them and tell them all the crazy things that happened to you all day long. And in the end that’s what it’s about, kids. It’s not about the sex, it’s not about the money that they give you or whatever. It’s not about how good-looking they are, it’s about, can they listen to you talk for hours and hours and hours about stupid shit that doesn’t matter. And if they can, then you’re meant to be together forever. Even if that means you have to call them 100 times, that’s okay. — Tegan Quin
