"I wonder if we’re sometimes standing in the same memory"
— The Day Before
"I’m either happy because of nothing, or sad because of everything"
"It’s nice when someone remembers small details about you."
"Do not mock a pain that you haven’t endured."
"I’m self-sufficient. I spend a lot of time on my own and I shut off quite easily. When I communicate, I communicate 900 per cent, then I shut off, which scares people sometimes."
— Bjork on ‘Self-Sufficiency
it really pisses me off how easy it is to get sad and then how long and hard it is to get happy again like what the fuck man thats not fair

"It is sad that the things that we saw in each other are no longer there. It is a shame that we tore each other apart looking for things that we needed desperately but could never find. It is tragic that we only wanted to give each other but only stole from ourselves and blamed each other for the emptiness in our lives. I see you differently now. I no longer fear you. It took years to see you for what you really are."
— Henry Rollins
I like being alone.
I like drinking coffee alone, and reading alone.
I like riding the bus alone, and walking home alone.
It gives me time to think, and set my mind free.
I like eating alone, and listening to music alone.
But when I see a mother with her child, a girl with her lover, or a friend laughing with their best friend, I realize that even though I like being alone, I don’t fancy being lonely. The sky is beautiful, but the people are sad. I just need someone who won’t run away.
"Well, let it pass, he thought; April is over, April is over. There are all kinds of love in the world, but never the same love twice."
— F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Short Stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald
"He looked at me like I was crazy. Most of my lovers do, and that’s partly why they love me, and partly why they leave."
— Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit
