"We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything—What a waste!

How you live your life is your business. Just remember: our hearts and our bodies are given to us only ones. Before you know it, your heart is worn out; as your body, there comes a point when no one looks at it, much less want to come near it. 

Right now, there’s sorrow, pain…Don’t kill it, and with it, the joy you felt."
