It's Complicated
❝ I feel like a defective model, like I came off the assembly line flat-out fucked and my parents should have taken me back for repairs before the warranty ran out. ❞

— Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation

❝ Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime. ❞

— Ernest Hemingway, A Literary Reference

❝ To look life in the face, always, to look life in the face, and to know it for what it is…at last, to love it for what it is, and then, to put it away… ❞

— Virginia Woolf

❝ Violence does not always take visible form, and not all wounds gush blood. ❞

— Haruki Murakami, 1Q84 

❝ Who are you?
Are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies?
Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them?
I have. I am fucking crazy.
But I am free. ❞

—  Lana Del Rey

❝ Sane is boring. ❞

❝ The most important things are the hardest to say. ❞

— Stephen King, Different Seasons

❝ We throw our parties; we abandon our families to live alone in Canada; we struggle to write books that do not change the world, despite our gifts and our unstinting efforts, our most extravagant hopes. We live our lives, do whatever we do, and then we sleep. It’s as simple and ordinary as that. A few jump out windows, or drown themselves, or take pills; more die by accident; and most of us are slowly devoured by some disease, or, if we’re very fortunate, by time itself. There’s just this for consolation: an hour here or there when our lives seem, against all odds and expectations, to burst open and give us everything we’ve ever imagined, though everyone but children (and perhaps even they) know these hours will inevitably be followed by others, far darker and more difficult. Still, we cherish the city, the morning; we hope, more than anything, for more. Heaven only knows why we love it so… ❞

— Michael Cunningham, The Hours

❝ Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it. ❞

— Mark Twain

❝ Mrs. Dalloway is always giving parties to cover the silence. ❞

— Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway

❝ It would be wonderful to say you regretted it. It would be easy. But what does it mean? What does it mean to regret when you have no choice? ❞

— Michael Cunningham and David Hare, The Hours

❝ Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people that they don’t like. ❞

— Will Rogers

❝ I am ungrateful? You call ME ungrateful? My life has been stolen from me. I’m living in a town I have no wish to live in… I’m living a life I have no wish to live… How did this happen? ❞

— Michael Cunningham

❝ You cannot find peace by avoiding life. ❞

— Michael Cunningham

❝ I thought how unpleasant it is to be locked out; and I thought how it is worse, perhaps, to be locked in. ❞

— Virginia Woolf
