This is such harsh advice until you realize it’s the truth
"We’re adults, but, like…adult cats. Someone should probably take care of us, but we can sort of make it on our own."
Apparently how people feel after waking up from naps.
How I feel after waking up from naps.
- Mac: "What are you?"
- Barrons: "I don't follow."
- Mac: "You dropped thirty feet in that warehouse. You should have broken something. You should have broken two somethings—like legs. What are you?"
- Barrons: "A man with a rope?"
"Do you think love just goes away? Pops out of existence when it becomes too painful or inconvenient, as if you never felt it? […] If only it did. If only it could be turned off. It’s not a faucet. Love’s a bloody river with level-five rapids. Only a catastrophic act of nature or a dam has any chance of stopping it—and then usually only succeeds in diverting it. Both measures are extreme and change the terrain so much you end up wondering why you bothered. No landmarks to gauge your position when it’s done. Only way to survive is to devise new ways to map out life. You loved her yesterday, you love her today. And she did something that devastates you. You’ll love her tomorrow."
"Nobody looks good in their darkest hours. But it’s those hours that make us what we are."
"Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best, and then there are those remarkably rare, addictive ones who just bring out the most. Of everything. They make you feel so alive that you’d follow them straight into hell, just to keep getting your fix."
"I hate fate. I don’t believe in her. Unfortunately, I think the bitch believes in me."
"You know the reason The Beatles made it so big?…’I Wanna Hold Your Hand.’ First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That’s what everyone wants. Not 24/7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a Porsche…or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have such a feeling that they can’t hide. Every single successful song of the past fifty years can be traced back to ‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand.’ And every single successful love story has those unbearable and unbearably exciting moments of hand-holding."
"“This is what I know. Don’t settle for 40, 50, or even 80 percent. A relationship-it shouldn’t be too small or too tight or even a little scratchy. It shouldn’t take up space in your closet out of guilty conscience or convenience or a moment of desire. Do you hear me? It should be perfect for you. It should be lasting. Wait. wait for 100 percent.”
― Deb Caletti,"
"I crush her against me. I want to be part of her. Not just inside her but all around her. I want our ribcages to crack open and our hearts to migrate and merge. I want our cells to braid together like living thread."
