Love isn't so convenient, it isn't something scheduled in advance. Not something guaranteed you need for fear it may pass you by. You have to take a chance. You can't just try it out. What's love unless it's unconditional?
[He crumples Clara's letter
Love doesn't give a damn about tomorrow, and neither do I.
