“A philosophical attitude: a drinking and living life to the lees: please don’t let me stop thinking and start blindly frightendly accepting! I want to taste and glory in each day, and never be afraid to experience pain; and never shut myself up in a numb core of non-feeling, or stop questioning and criticising life and take the easy way out. To learn and think; to think and live; to live and learn: this always, with new insight, new understanding, and new love.” -Sylvia Plath
She feels comfortable around him because hes not aggressive or over-cynical. He has a softness about him that touches her, and at the same time, a hardness of purpose, along with an obvious sense of responsibility that makes her feel secure - of the future, of his devotion, and of her womanhood. He’s a quiet, gentle man. And she is also a quiet, gentle woman. Somehow, his nearness brings her a feeling of peace and rightness. He’s smart, he has a wonderful sense of humor that mirrors hers almost exactly. He makes her laugh as well as cry. He tells her fascinating stories… he’s witty, clever, charming and changeable enough to intrigue her and keep her guessing. He’s just the right blend of the stability and with hints of unpredictability to make life interesting and prevent love from going stale through fixed habits. Besides all of those attractions, he’s a gallant and charming lover. He can read her mind (as she reads his), always seeming to know when she most needs his arms around her.
