“”And there are times when we are lying in bed and I look over and sort
of have a start. Because I realize here is this other person who is
separate and different and has different memories and backgrounds and
thoughts and feelings. It’s that tension between familiarity and
mystery that makes for something strong, because, even as you build a
life of trust and comfort and mutual support, you retain some sense of
surprise or wonder about the other person.”
–President Barak Obama, quoted in a New Yorker piece.
