I feel this,
is beyond my control;
I’ve lost now,
something I’ve sold
for nothing at all. 

I’ll keep this,
year after year—
you’ve taken
all that was dear to me. 

— Lang Leav

You never get over it. But you get to where it doesn’t bother you so much.

My experience of life is that it is not divided up into genres; it’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you’re lucky.

You know what I think we are most afraid of? Not knowing. Not knowing whether it’s all really worth it. Not knowing if you should give up or keep fighting. Not knowing why you do the things you do; not knowing the purpose. It’s like when you’re little and you touch the stove and get burned because you didn’t know that it was hot. Not knowing has always hurt us, from the every beginning.
