“I like to see people reunited. I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t fell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing one.” -Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
