Is it possible, in the final analysis, for one human being to achieve perfect understanding of another?

We convince ourselves that we know the other person well, but do we really know anything important about anyone?

I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.
― Oscar Wilde (via vengefulthrill)
We live in a world where we have to hide to make love, while violence is practiced in broad daylight.
