One day, whether you are 14, 28, or 65. You will stumble upon someone who will start a fire in you that cannot die. However, the saddest, most awful truth you will ever come to find––
is they are not always
with whom we spend our lives.
— Beau Taplin, The Awful Truth
I’m not totally mad at you. I’m just sad. You’re all locked up in that little world of yours, and when I try knocking on the door, you just sort of look up for a second and go right back inside.
— Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
