"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget."
"Did you love him all the self out of you? All the sense out of you? All the syrup off your waffles? All the crisp off your chicken? And now you’re left alone……aren’t you?"
