Neil Gaiman once said

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.” - Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman is a genius. Although I have not collected all his books (you can call them books, right!) but I have kept up with most of his updates. Am following him on Twitter too, he's really funny out there I must say. But it's interesting to note that people in India are interested about Neil too. If I remember correctly, apart from me and my alter ego, you are the only person from India I know who spoke about Neil Gaiman. Found your blog from Orkut. Keep writing and keep smiling :)
