I believe there is a theory that men and women emerge finer and stronger after suffering, and that to advance in this or any world we must endure ordeal by fire. This we have done in full measure, ironic though it seems. We have both known fear, and loneliness, and very great distress. I suppose sooner or later in life of everyone comes a moment of trial. We all of us have our particular devil who rides us and torments us, and we must give battle in the end. We have conquered us, or so we believe.
Sometimes there doesn't even have to be a reason. I knew from experience that no matter how much you turn things in your head, trying to make sense of them, some people just defy all logic.
Whenever a memory pops into your head, you always have to wonder how many more times will I be able to remember that? Will I ever remember that again? How many times can you revisit a memory?
Love is always a good thing no matter how much it hurts. Even after it's over, even through the pain, anyone who has ever really loved will tell you that they never regretted a second of it, no matter how much it hurt in the end. And if you tell me differently, I will tell you that you were not truly in love.
I can't just sit here and have coffee with you. I love you. I know the other night didn't mean for you what it did for me, but I haven't stopped thinking about you since it happened, and not because it was great- which it was- but because it was right. It was so right, and you might not see that right now, but I do, and if I have to wait until we're both 80 years old for you to see it, then I'll wait. I'm not going anywhere. This is it for me. You're it for me, and I can't pretend to feel any less than I do, I just can't.
Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
You can't always get what you want; sometimes you just have to get on your knees and pray for God’s will.
I always think of you before I fall asleep. The words you said, the way you looked. the things we laughed about, the silent moments we shared. And when I dream, I’ll dream of you. Because it’s about you, it's always about you.
Everything passes, everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Honestly, if I'm honest with myself I've cried myself to sleep. Crying out, 'Oh God, where are you?' Can you hear my scream way up there, through the clouds, in heaven? Do you even care?' And honestly, if I'm honest with myself, I hate the song they sing. It's like salt on an open wound but I can't get it out of my head.
You don't just automatically love someone. You slowly learn how to trust them, how to start believing in them. You want to be with them to the point where you're jealous of anyone else who gets a little of their time. It gets you mad, but you learn to get past it, because you can't be jealous forever. And then you realize, you don't even feel jealousy anymore because you have this unwavering confidence that this person will never leave you, never betray you and would never pick someone else over you. They make you feel irreplaceable. That's when it hits you. You really do love each other and it's completely unbreakable.
The sad truth is, people change. We’ve been changing since the day we were born. Think about it, you didn’t always like barbie dolls. You did for a while, then you didn’t. You didn’t always drink alcohol, but now you do. You changed. And this changing will continue all through our lives, people we think we know will change and we’ll find we don’t really know them that well anymore. We’ll grow out of loving people and grow out of hating people too. It’s sad because we lose things, but it’s beautiful because we gain things too. So don’t just sit back there and watch things change around you, feeling miserable. Change with them.
I used to think that when I got older, the world would make so much more sense. But you know what? The older I get, the more confusing it is to me. The more complicated it is. Harder. You'd think we'd be getting better at it. But there's just more and more chaos. The pieces- they're everywhere. And nobody knows what to do about it. I find myself grasping, Nick. You know that feeling? That feeling when you just want the right thing to fall into the right place, not only because it's right, but because it would mean that such a thing is still possible? I want to believe that.
