I have this theory that the more important & intimate the emotion, the fewer words are required to express it. For instance, in dating. ‘Will you go out with me?’ Six words. ‘I think I care for you.’ Five words. ‘You matter to me.’ Four words. ‘I love you.’ Three words. ‘Marry me.’ Two words. So what’s left? What’s the one most important & intimate word you can ever say to somebody? It’s ‘goodbye.’ — J. Michael Straczynski
