From: Flowers For Algernon

“And as i lay there with her I could see how important physical love was, how necessary it was for us to be in each other’s arms, giving and taking. The universe was exploding, each particle away from the next, hurtling us in dark and lonely space, eternally tearing us away from each other — child out of the womb, friend away from freind, moving from each other, each through his own pathway toward the goal-box of solitary death.

But this was the counterweight, the act of binding and holding.”
