Quote of the Day

That’s what love, I think, really is at the end of the day. It’s not even like a selflessness, it’s like an understanding that I’m making a safe place for you. It’s not safe out there. Somebody’s out to get you – that’s just nature. That’s just the nature of being. And I feel like, yeah, you can totally love somebody and still look out for yourself. But I think the question really is, do you see that someone else as a part of you? If you see us, [as] depend[ing] on each other, then you always are gonna want the best for them.

– Donald Glover
