quote I was dying to have a cat. But they wouldn’t let me. My mother hated them. Not once in my life have I managed to get something I really wanted. Not once. Can you believe it? You can’t understand what it’s like to live like that. When you get used to that kind of life—of never having anything you want—then you stop knowing what it is you want.

quote If you love what you do and are willing to do what it takes, it’s within your reach. And it’ll be worth every minute you spend alone at night, thinking and thinking about what it is you want to design or build. It’ll be worth it, I promise.

quote There were always in me two women at least. One woman, desperate and bewildered who felt she was drowning; and another who would leap into a scene, as upon a stage, conceal her true emotions because they were weaknesses, helplessness, despair, and present to the world only a smile, an eagerness, curiosity, enthusiasm, interest.

quote The years start to show. The lines on my face, the scars on my back. The youth that I spent spinning this web, building these walls. But after all the things I’ve done, lies that I have told, is this the way to understand? I, I had to lose it all so I could feel, so I could feel alive. It’s the strangest thing.

All in a day, I lost my faith in God and buried a friend 50 years before his time. And I forgot how long I’ve been waiting here for the world to stop turning just for me.

But I smile at the night that follows the day, at the death that will follow my life. I will not fear what I can’t control. So I smile for the love that I don’t have, the love I never needed in the first place.

quote In all the lessons learned, were they worth the ash from all the bridges burned? Standing, stomping in the damage and the ruins of a slip of tongue with tragic consequences. I think that we’ve all made our gravest mistakes on the greatest intentions that we’re too stubborn to let go.

Oh it’s such a drag, what a chore… oh your wounds are full of salt. Everything’s a stress and what’s more, well it’s all somebody’s fault.

Get over it, get over it.

Makes you sick, makes you ill, makes you cheat, slipping change from the till. Had it up to the gills… makes you cry while the milk still spills. Ain’t it just a bitch? What a pain… Well it’s all a crying shame. What left to do but complain? Better find someone to blame.

quote Marching on, it’s one foot then the other. Better than one foot then none at all. Biting off way more than I can chew, like I sometimes do. I never know when just when and where to stop.
