"Falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain or selfish, it makes you indestructible."
found this gem in the 1996 Cornell Women’s Handbook. it’s what to say when a guy tries to get out of using a condom
"One day you lose something, and you say: ‘Oh my God. I was happy. And I didn’t even know it.’"
"Directly, or indirectly, everything we write is for someone."
"The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off."
"Remember, one who enjoys more is bound to suffer more because he becomes very sensitive. But suffering is not bad. If you understand it rightly, suffering is a cleansing. If you understand it rightly, sadness has a depth to it which no happiness can ever have. A person who is simply happy is always superficial. A person who has not known sorrow and has not known sadness, has not known the depths. He has not touched the bottom of his being; he has remained just on the periphery. One has to move within these two banks. Within these two banks flows the river."
"I can’t abandon
the person I used to be
so I carry her"

Human beings, in the final analysis, have to survive on their own.
