Wednesday Words

"I’ll wait for you. Come back. The words were not meaningless, but they didn’t touch him now. It was clear enough -- one person waiting for another was like an arithmetical sum, and just as empty of emotion. Waiting. Simply one person doing nothing, over time, while another approached. Waiting was a heavy word.” 
-Ian McEwan, Atonement
