"To wish you were someone else
is to waste the person you are."
"By April, life has killed you."
"She turned to me and whispered, don’t you just love it when you get so excited you forget to breathe? And the thought of her smiling eyes still makes me laugh."
"Don’t sorry me, son! Sorry is for snakes. Catch the damn ball!"
Jonathan Letham “Fortress of Solitude”
"Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room."
