“In many ways love has already named us before we can even begin to speak back to it, before we can utter the right words or understand what has happened to us or is continuing to happen to us: an invitation to the most difficult art of all, to love without naming at all.” ― David Whyte, Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words
