"Chasing after a guy who’s not interested in you will rip the hell out of your self-respect. Better to face facts now because the longer you put it off, the harder it’ll be."

"Every time a man yells
you are seven years old again
and he is packing that suitcase
once more. Picking you up by the neck,
teaching you obedience. To be soft,
like the belly of a fish
exposed to a knife."

- Clementine von Radics

"We all lose the plot sometimes. It doesn’t make you “crazy” or “loony”. It makes you human, it makes you real and it makes you alive. So don’t listen when they tell you to chill out because life is fucking scary sometimes and its okay to feel that way. Don’t listen when they tell you to stop being so down because life is fucking sad sometimes and it’s okay to feel that way. Whatever you feel, it’s okay."

"Night is purer than day; it is better for thinking and loving and dreaming. At night everything is more intense, more true. The echo of words that have been spoken during the day takes on a new and deeper meaning."

"Sometimes I would get invited to a party or to go out to dinner by one of them and I would decline. Part of me wanted to go, but those kind of outings always made me feel even more alienated than usual. Hearing them talk made me feel lonely and hateful at the same time. Lonely because I didn’t fit in, never did. When I was reminded, it hurt. And hateful because it reaffirmed what I already knew, that I was alone and on the
outside."

"Finishing a book is bittersweet. You spend days getting to know the characters. Learning their nuances, their faults, their loves, their lives. They become your friends, acquaintances, enemies. And after the story ends, you miss them. You look for them in your own life, wonder where they’ve gone, you forget that they aren’t real. You fall in love with the hero and dream of him at night. The strange girl becomes your best friend. Their heartaches become your heartaches. You laugh when they laugh. And cry when they die. Eventually you realise they aren’t a part of your world, you were just briefly visiting theirs."

"A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves."

- Edgar Cayce
