Neil Gaiman is one of my very favourite people. He’s written “Stardust” and “Coraline” and some of the best episodes of “Doctor Who”, among other things; if we ever met I’m pretty sure I’d combust on the spot just from being near his drop dead gorgeous brain.
Neil has a lot to say about love, and he says it with words that are poignant and lovely and sad and true. This particular quote is all of those things, and it’s funny besides, which makes it perfect for the holiday today and just about any day ever, I think.
“He wondered how it could have taken him so long to realize he cared for her, and he told her so, and she called him an idiot, and he declared that it was the finest thing that ever a man had been called.”
― Neil Gaiman, Stardust
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
