“I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stumped by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say, “Hi”. They may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word.”—-Augusten Burroughs.
“In your whole life, nobody has ever abused you more than you have abused yourself. And the limit of your self-abuse is exactly the limit of abuse that you will tolerate from someone else.”—Random quote (undeniablytrue) (via littlemiss)
I wanted to walk through the empty streets, and feel something constant under my feet, but all the news reports recommended that I stay indoors, because the air outside will make our cells divide at an alarming rate.. Until our shells simply cannot hold all our insides in. And it won’t be a pretty sight.
