"…words are forever. Even if you kill the person who writes them, words are forever. Even if you disagree with them and spend the rest of your days arguing against what was said, what was said, was still said."
"Something else is in control of you and when that happens, you can either fight it or ignore it or try to justify it, or you can do what you’re doing, which is try to make it make sense. That’s what you’re doing."
”Too many people mistook envy for happiness. They believed other people wanting to do the things they were doing was more important than doing the things they wanted to do. So they’d edit their photographs and edit their lives and edit and lie until from a distance, it looked like they had the perfect life.”
"…if you can show me a life without a question, I’ll show you someone without purpose."
"The feeling of being happy. It doesn’t happen often but when it does, you must grab it with both hands and hold it close. Let it overwhelm you. Don’t over-analyse any emotion. But remember it. Always remember it."
"Elsewhere are two letters that were never sent, because of pride, each a declaration of love that would’ve changed lives."
"…never apologise for how you feel. No one can control how they feel. The sun doesn’t apologise for being the sun. The rain doesn’t say sorry for falling. Feelings just are."
