"Lovers are going to get hurt the most--that’s the way it happens. They feel more and forgive more. They give people chances no matter what happens. They carry hope with them no matter how bad it hurts. And I see that in you. You’re a lover and you feel what others feel. You want to save everyone you love without asking for anything in return . And I know you’ll do it regardless of...whether it breaks you or not."
