"The idea of soul mates actually originated with Plato."
"Yeah, you mean the clay that kids play with."
"No, the... Oh."
"Me, joke? No."
"No, the ancient Greek philosopher. His theory was that humans originally consisted of four arms, four legs and two faces. Zeus was threatened by their power and split them all in half, condemning us all to spend our lives trying to complete ourselves."

"I can see how much pain you're in. Is it worth it to have your own happiness so contingent upon another human being?"
"If I was willing to give up my life for [another person], why would I not be willing to risk my happiness for her?"

I believe that if I pretended you were still here [after your death], I would feel better for a moment. Also, speaking to you [at your grave] would require me to figuratively look at myself through your eyes, again, temporarily. And I think that would make me live my life more successfully.

What is a man without his love? If love turn its back on thee, it is as a hearth with no fire. 'Tis best to slay the false heart, to waken from the dream that is life, than live dark-hearted in a dark world.

"I'm not certain you're being guided by your brain, that's all. Need can be confused with love. Fantasy can convince us that what we're feeling is love."
"So you're saying this is all a rebound?"
"No. You don't understand, love, Sweets."
"I'm not as innocent as you might think."
"You have this bourgeois notion..."
"...that in order for love to be real it has to be permanent. Nothing is permanent. That's just a fact. We move in and out of loving other people, but that doesn't make the love any less real."
"Mm hmm. Perhaps you're saying this because you haven't met the love of your life." "I have, actually. Many times."
"Fine. It seems to me that you always leave yourself an escape hatch in your relationships because you're afraid of commitment."
"Nice try. But no. Actually I commit to every person I love."
"You marry a man and then conveniently forget that you married him because you got zonked on Kava Kava. That compromises your relationship with Hodgins, so that ends, along with the marriage. Now you say you have these intense feelings for an ex-lover whose heart you've already broken. Don't you see the potential disaster here?"

"So this is all simple psychology to you?"
"People's actions are motivated by their needs. When we discover our needs, we discover who we are. So, yes."
"No, society makes us who are, not psychology. Society shapes our actions. Culture compels us, not us toilet training mishap."

If I've learnt anything, it's that we can never let the chaos and injustice make us so blind with anger that we become part of the problem. Understanding, compassion, kindness and love are the only true revolutionary ideals. When we compromise those, we become what we despise, and we lose our humanity.

Analyzing and over analyzing. Loving. Hating. Being. Seeing. Hearing. Talking. Closing my eyes. Breathing. Thinking. Thinking that I'm thinking. Believing. In very few things...but believing in them with every fibre of my being. Dancing. Till my heart is on fire. Watching TV shows. I'm addicted. Math. Programming. Mahabharat. It's fascinating. Discussing religion and its evolution. Ramadan. It's uplifting. Reading. Writing. Words. Learning. Trying. Giving. Waiting for the one I lost over the stupidest and horriblest mistake ever.
