“Our minds have this strange ability to make associations using ourselves as a reference point. They create our identities based on our relation to people and things. They aim for control because ownership falsely promises us an elevated sense of self. But this is exactly the opposite of love. When we fall in love, we disidentify and get lost for a little while in a song, a beautiful painting, and most of all, we get lost in our lover. And through their love, we find our true infinite selves.”

“I will look for you in every lifetime and love you there.”

“Last night, I repeated your name like a mantra before falling asleep. Somehow the simple pleasure of uttering your name, and the added pleasure of hearing your name was heaven for me and I didn’t go to bed until dawn. Isn’t it odd how your name, a single word associated with you, can bring another person such joy that they inflict insomnia upon themselves and call it a blessing?”

“You have brought me back to myself.”

Kamand Kojouri

“Be still, and know that I will always love you.”

“What is the point of all these books
when I learn best by reading your body?”

“We cannot hunt for love.
We can only surrender
and become love’s prey.”

Kamand Kojouri

“May we always see life through love-coloured glasses.”
