A memorable paragraph from a mystery book I’m reading for the (now online), local book club. It is called “The Silent Patient” by Alex Michaelides and has some insightful passages:

“About love. About how often we mistake love for fireworks-for drama and dysfunction. But real love is very quiet, very still. It’s boring, if seen from a perspective of high drama. Love is deep and calm -and constant. I imagine you do give Kathy love -in the true sense of the word. Whether or not she is capable of giving it back to you is another question.”

Remember, love that doesn’t include honesty doesn’t deserve to be called love.”
