Bono (via rweb)
Adam is a romantic at heart. There have been times in my marriage when I thought about those conversations I missed, those nights out, those great girls that showed such promise. But it’s not easy to deal with these feelings, it’s not easy to deal with fame, it’s not easy to deal with women throwing themselves at you, even being married, perhaps especially being married. No matter how strong you are,these are real hurdles that you have to figure out how to get over. I will never forget the time Adam saw me in a headlock with some starlet and said to me “It’s fun. It’s exciting having sex with someone you don’t know. Don’t let anyone tell you it isn’t. It’s a great adventure getting to know somebody. But as rare as it is to fall in love, it is as rare as real love. I will die for your love. I will be there when you’re sick and when you are frail love. Now that’s rare. I would give everything, all these experiences that I’m having, all these different and extraordinary women, I’d give them all up for what you have, Bono.” I remember Adam telling me that. And if there was on reason for heaving him as best man at my wedding, that was it, that one conversation. He’s so much special.
