The Big Yes

I'm running behind today, of course, so the big post I've been ruminating on the Nature of Ethics will have to wait. For now, I'm about halfway through Armistead Maupin's new novel The Days of Anna Madrigal, and this passage on page 138 leapt out at me:
It occurred to Michael that this was the great perk of being loved: someone to wait for you, someone to tell you that it will get easier up ahead.

Even when it might not be true.
