I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you. -Frida Kahlo
Many things interested her, and nothing satisfied her entirely. -Ivan Turgenev
Faced with the daily prospects of failure and self-loathing, a numb chrysalis starts to develop around you, and if you are not careful you wake up one morning to find yourself not awake, but in a semi-comatose state, baked into a hardened shell, breathless and mind-numbing. You have to poke your finger through the hardened crispy shell, and after you’ve pushed it through you have to wiggle it about until eventually the hole is big enough to smash a whole fist through. -Tracey Emin
I wanted to stay as I was still as the world is never still,not in midsummer but the moment beforethe first flower forms, the momentnothing is as yet past —Louise Glück
I wanted it so much. I don’t know why I wanted it so much.
