He’s a wallflower. You see things. You keep quiet about them. And you understand.
Being strong is to love someone in silence, to radiate happiness when we are unhappy, to forgive someone who does not deserve forgiveness, to stay calm in moments of despair, to show joy when we do not feel it, to smile when we want to cry, to make someone happy when our own heart is broken, to be silent when we feel like screaming our anguish, to comfort when we need to be comforted, and to have faith when we no longer believe.
Airports see more sincere kisses than wedding halls. The walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than the walls of churches.
