""You know I love you. You’re the only one." She isn’t the first woman he’s ever said that to. He shouldn’t have used it up so much earlier in his life, he shouldn’t have treated it like a tool, a wedge, a key to open women. By time he got around to meaning it, the words had sounded fraudulent to him and he’d been ashamed to pronounce them."
- Oryx and Crake, Margaret Atwood (via we-real-cool)
