"If I ask you your favorite color, please explain to me why. I’m someone who wants you to have your reasons for loving things, I want to see the passion in your eyes when the words pour from your lips. I don’t want to watch you grow up falling in love with things simply because of their appearance, or because other people seem to enjoy them as well. I want you to enjoy things because they make your head spin, or because they hatch butterflies in your stomach. Don’t love things just because they’re there to be loved; love them because they create sparks in your heart."
