oF Two KiNDs

“I have even entertained the theory that there are two kinds of people in the world: those who must at points move on because they fear they will lose or damage something if they don’t; and those who stay because to love for them means to persevere and to hold on. Both, in truth, are attempts at preserving something. I do believe this, though what that something is, I think, is never the same from person to person or even explicable, for the most part.”

(from The May Queen, essay by Dao Strom)
