the wisdom of the sands - antoine de saint-exupéry

For there is no absence either from the home or from your love, when your every step forms part of the ceremonial dance of love or of the home. Far from parting you, your absence binds you together; far from isolating you from her, it unites you. And can you tell me where you would set the landmark beyond which absence means a sundering? If the ceremonial be firmly knit together, and if you keep your eyes intently on the god within whom you twain are one, and if that god burns with an ardent flame - who can separate you from your friend or your own house?
