My dear,

Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.

Love does not consist of each of us admiring the other.

Yes, it starts from there, but afterwards (if it is to continue being called love), we must both look outwards, together, and in the same direction. For love is the ability to face the world together; hand in hand, side by side.

Falsely yours,
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
