  2. "There is an old poem by Neruda that I’ve always been captivated by, and one of the first lines in it has stuck with me ever since the first time i read it. It says "love is so short, forgetting is so long". It’s a line I’ve related to in my saddest moments, when i needed to know someone else had felt the exact same way.” (RED prologue)

  3. You don’t know anyone at the party, so you don’t want to go. You don’t like cottage cheese, so you haven’t eaten it in years. This is your choice, of course, but don’t kid yourself: it’s also the flinch. Your personality is not set in stone. You may think a morning coffee is the most enjoyable thing in the world, but it’s really just a habit. Thirty days without it, and you would be fine. You think you have a soul mate, but in fact you could have had any number of spouses. You would have evolved differently, but been just as happy.

    You can change what you want about yourself at any time. You see yourself as someone who can’t write or play an instrument, who gives in to temptation or makes bad decisions, but that’s really not you. It’s not ingrained. It’s not your personality. Your personality is something else, something deeper than just preferences, and these details on the surface, you can change anytime you like.

    If it is useful to do so, you must abandon your identity and start again. Sometimes, it’s the only way.

    Set fire to your old self. It’s not needed here. It’s too busy shopping, gossiping about others, and watching days go by and asking why you haven’t gotten as far as you’d like. This old self will die and be forgotten by all but family, and replaced by someone who makes a difference.

    Your new self is not like that. Your new self is the Great Chicago Fire—overwhelming, overpowering, and destroying everything that isn’t necessary.

  4. Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are.

    — Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (via larmoyante)

    I had to read this book for a college composition class. I am so glad it was required. This part in the book made me realize that not knowing what was causing my sadness I felt at random times was normal. My ex boyfriend would always get mad at me because when he asked me what was wrong I could never explain to him what it was.

  6. Wander a whole summer if you can. Time will not be taken from the sum of life. Instead of shortening, it will definitely lengthen it and make you truly immortal.

  9. 1) I want to rent hotel rooms with you and spend more than half our time being outside.

    2) I want to get lost while we’re driving because I can’t read maps and you are too stubborn to ask for directions.

    3) I want to eat drive-thru food with you on the floor of our first apartment.

    4) I want to get drunk in public and have you take me home while I hit on you.

    5) I want to go on long adventures with you.

    6) I want to go to the movies and make out with you in the back like a couple of over excited teenagers.

    7) I want to lay with you under the stars and talk about the future like I’ve got it all planned.

    8) I want to break in your arms once in a while because I don’t have it all planned.

    9) I want to bore with you with my favorite shows and movies even though you insist it is okay.

    10) I want to play video games with you and sulk when I lose.

    11) I want to paint you in my poems.

    12) I want to dance with you.

    13) I want to spend the rest of my life with you, knowing there’s no place else I’d rather be.
