“Mr. Sinclair used to say that affection is one of the most neglected words in the English language, that people throw the word love around like confetti when they mean affection. And affection is a special feeling that you can have for a person. But I think affection is also sad, especially when a person wants more then affection, wants love and can’t have it.” - Tenderness (Robert Cormier); submitted by fuglies-to-the-left. Thank you!
