I have promises to keep, & miles to go before I sleep, & miles to go before I sleep

“… And that wherever they might be they always remember that the past was a lie, that memory has no return, that every spring gone by could never be recovered, and that the wildest and most tenacious love was an ephemeral truth in the end.”

When You're Really Good at Being Alone

"I know how to take care of myself, I am independent, and I don’t need anybody for anything. But I’m realizing how much fuller life can be with somebody by my side. To hear someone else’s laughter with my own, to look over at somebody and know they are thinking the same thing I am. The comfort of laying next to somebody in complete silence. Having somebody to go to the grocery store with, or take a drive, or talk about nothing and everything deep into the night. I’m really good at being alone. But more than anything, I want to learn how to share my life with another person. "

“I don’t want people to matter to me too much. Sometimes it hurts too much to think about them. Ones you love who don’t love you, ones who are dead or hate you, ones who you think about but never get to be with. I like people but when I get too close, it fucks me up and I can’t get things done.”

la vie en rose

“The opening was so bold and true that she feared to start, for its drawn-out melody was no less than a cry from a human heart. She shuddered, and then she began.”

—Mark Helprin
