“The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”

-Albert Einstein

Perhaps, the problem is not the intensity of your love, but the quality of the people you are loving.

I pass by people, grazing them on the edges, and it bothers me. I’ve got to admire someone to really like them deeply.” – Sylvia Plath, Unabridged Journals

“You don’t get to control everything. You can wake up at 5 a.m. every day until you’re tired and broken, but if the words or the painting or the ideas don’t want to come to fruition, they won’t. You can show up every day to your best intentions, but if it’s not the time, it’s just not the fucking time. You need to give yourself permission to be a human being.

Sometimes the novel is not ready to be written because you haven’t met the inspiration for your main character yet. Sometimes you need two more years of life experience before you can make your masterpiece into something that will feel real and true and raw to other people.

Sometimes you’re not falling in love because whatever you need to know about yourself is only knowable through solitude. Sometimes you haven’t met your next collaborator. Sometimes your sadness encircles you because, one day, it will be the opus upon which you build your life.”

The worst part of being single is not the actual being single part, it’s the part where your friends become engrossed with their relationships and your friendship takes a back seat and (surprise!) you become quite aware that you are not on anyone’s mind. Hey! Remember me! Remember how we used to have so much fun together? Let’s keep doing that. And as much as I may adore your significant other, I don’t always want to be a third wheel. Let’s talk about the things we used to talk about, the other facets of your multi-dimensional life. Sometimes, I just want to hang out with you, as your own person. Don’t lose yourself.

There is something demoralizing about watching two people get more and more crazy about each other, especially when you are the only extra person in the room. 

It’s like watching Paris from an express caboose heading in the opposite direction–every second the city gets smaller and smaller, only you feel it’s really you getting smaller and smaller and lonelier and lonelier, rushing away from all those lights and excitement at about a million miles an hour.” -Sylvia Plath
