Variation on the Word Sleep

A quote from a very wise friend.

I was having a discussion with an old friend over email. It was sparked by reading the entry "You Two Have Fun Day" at Girls are Pretty -- there's something disturbing about that entry because it puts you in the position of the adulterer, the betrayer. Recent occurences in my family and her friends also centered around infidelity, and we started discussing what it means. This quote really struck me as important:

"i guess this kind of free will- and the struggle to overcome temptation for the sake of another person is part of what makes us amazing- and we can fail, and forgive, and love despite it, or even because of it- but its kind of like death- I believe that we're better off with it, but can't really accept it."
