“ Part of life is a quest to find that one essential person who will understand our story. But we choose wrongly so often. Over the ensuing years that person we thought understood us best ends up regarding us with pity, indifference, or active dislike. ”

Jonathan Carroll (via browndresswithwhitedots)

“ The destiny of the individual soul
has lost much of its grandeur. In the past, the human
being was not doomed to be merely what he is. God
and Satan wrestled over him. In the past, we were
important enough to have a battle fought over our
souls. Today, our salvation is our own affair. Our
lives are no longer marked by the original sin but by the
risk of failing to fulfill their ultimate potential: so we
accumulate plans, ideals and programmers; we
constantly pass the buck and seek to outdo each
other in a universal effort to perform. And we
subside into the condition of those who, as
Kierkegaard put it, are no longer capable of facing
the Last Judgement in person. ”

Jean Baudrillard, Impossible Exchange, p. 64

Nobody gets out of love alive. That’s half the deal and we all know it by the time we’re fifteen years old. You gamble and lose about 90% of the time. It’s like buying a lottery ticket. The chances of winning anything are a million to one. We know that but it doesn’t stop us from trying again and again. Which is good because it shows people are optimistic about the most important thing in life.
