intimacy and midnight all day

Soon we will be strangers. No, we can never be that. Hurting someone is an act of reluctant intimacy. We will be dangerous acquaintances with a history.
And silence, like darkness, can be kind; it, too, is a language.
—  Hanif Kureishi, Intimacy and Midnight All Day: A Novel and Stories
