"Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself."
"You are enough. You are so enough, it is unbelievable how enough you are."
"Boring damned people. All over the earth. Propagating more boring damned people. What a horror show. The earth swarmed with them."
"In 20 years I won’t remember today; that scares me."
"It’s a very powerful thing when someone sees you as the person you wish you were."
"Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to."
"There’s that word again. Need. I need you. I need you to need me. How nauseating, to need another human being, as if their heart is in your throat. Love isn’t about need. Don’t romanticize the notion of desperation. Let me let you in on a secret: you don’t need me and I don’t need you. We can get through life just fine without each other. Love is not wanting to. We want each other, we want skin and hands and all our daily scars. We want intoxication and art museums and intertwined limbs. We want ferocity in our lips and slow, small circles traced on our stomachs. I don’t need you in my life, but goddamn I want you in it."
