“I wanted to…feel hatred and love, despair and tedium— all those simple, yet foolish things that make up everyday life but that give pleasure to your existence. If one day I could get out of here, I would allow myself to be crazy, Everyone is indeed crazy, but the craziest are the ones who don’t know they are crazy; they just keep repeating what others tell them to.”—Veronika Decides to Die by Paulo Coelho
“I don’t think I could love you so much if you had nothing to complain of and nothing to regret. I don’t like people who have never fallen or stumbled. Their virtue is lifeless and of little value. Life hasn’t revealed it’s beauty to them.”—Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak
“I began to draw an invisible boundary between myself and other people. No matter who I was dealing with. I maintained a set distance, carefully monitoring the person’s attitude so that they wouldn’t get any closer. I didn’t easily swallow what other people told me. My only passions were books and music.”—
“I dont want to live in the kind of world where we dont look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I cant change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit.”—
I figured that there’s nothing I want more than to have peace. Everyone else can do anything they want, I will give you advice, comfort you, be there for you when you need me but in the end, it’s your choices and decisions after all, and I will respect them.
Everything will turn out fine in the end. Above all else, remember to be at peace with yourself and what you’re doing, then you’ll be fine. Everything will be fine
