An inspiring speech by Adrian Tan, author of The Teenage Textbook (1988). READ NOW.

Two of my favourite excerpts from the speech:

And so I want to start by giving one piece of advice to the men: when you’ve already won her heart, you don’t need to win every argument.

Modern society is anti-love. We’ve taken a microscope to everyone to bring out their flaws and shortcomings. It far easier to find a reason not to love someone, than otherwise. Rejection requires only one reason. Love requires complete acceptance. It is hard work – the only kind of work that I find palatable.
