And maybe one of the loveliest I’ve ever heard:
“In sickness and in sickness. That is what I wish for you. Don’t seek or expect miracles. There are no miracles. Not anymore. And there are no cures for the hurt that hurts most. There is only the medicine of believing each other’s pain, and being present for it.”
From: Jonathan Safran Foer. “Here I Am.” Farrar, Straus and Giroux. iBooks.
