"Literature is strewn with the wreckage of those who have minded beyond reason the opinion of others."
"If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own backyard; because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with."
"We do not always remember the things that do no credit to us. We justify them, cover them in bright lies or with the thick dust of forgetfulness."
"Because If I want intimacy, I need to get over my shit. I need to get over my bagage. I need to give a damn about myself in a way that is loving and positive."
Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way."
