Sternberg’s Love Theory
The triangular theory of love is a theory of love developed by psychologist Robert Sternberg. In the context of interpersonal relationships, ‘the three components of love, according to the triangular theory, are an intimacy component, a passion component, and a decision/commitment component’.
Intimacy – Which encompasses feelings of attachment, closeness, connectedness, and bondedness.
Passion – Which encompasses drives connected to both limerence and sexual attraction.
Commitment – Which encompasses, in the short term, the decision to remain with another, and in the long term, the shared achievements and plans made with that other.
I like it when somebody gets excited about something. It’s nice.
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye (via psych-facts)
I’m pleased to tell you how wonderful your brothers and sisters are doing in their marriages. Maria Carolina is pregnant expecting her first child in June and Ferdinand is enchanted with Beatrice having made her his wife at once. All this news, which should fill me with contentment is diminished by reflections on your dangerous situation. Everything depends on the wife if she is willing and sweet. I can’t repeat enough the importance for you to employ charm and patience never ill humor, to remedy this unfortunate situation. Remember, nothing is certain about your place there…until an heir is produced.

They didn’t even quote the, “Do you want to lick it off” line. I’m so disappointed.
Oh god I feel this so hard
Subtle changes that destroy the uniformity of a sequence of book/disc spines are annoying enough, but what about a series in a long-established standard size (pocket, trade) whose latest title is a different size?
Sometimes this means not just that the later book(s) look different because the new size usually comes with a different art style as well, it often means that if the earlier books are a truly standard size - pocket paperback jumping up to trade is classic - then this new book can’t be shelved with the rest of them and has to to go on a completely different shelf.
It’s a level of irritation impossible to explain to someone who hasn’t had it happen.
