“Because it is senior year I have begun to see things as potential absences. The things I love will become the things I’ll miss.” —David Levithan, The Realm of Possibility
If I told you that I’m sorry, would you tell me you were wrong?
Would you hold me down forever if I came to you for answers?
“Sometimes the hardest people to love are the ones who need it the most.” —Laura Wiess, Ordinary Beauty
“That’s what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending - performing. You get to love your pretence. It’s true, we’re locked in an image, an act - and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you’re trying to steal their most precious possession.” —Jim Morrison
“In the end it wasn’t up to me. The big things never are. Birth, I mean, and death. And love.” —Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex
