"Stop trying to leave,
and you will arrive."
"I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone."

And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."

And it’s the most painful thing you’ll ever have to do and that you’ve ever done. But what’s yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it’ll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won’t have to put it back in the sky again."

You’re aboard a ship setting sail, and the other person has joined the inland circus, or is boarding a different ship, and you just can’t be with each other anymore. Because you shouldn’t be."
"I said nothing for a time, just ran my fingertips along the edge of the human-shaped emptiness that had been left inside me."
"I forgive not because I became a saint, but because I’m tired of hating."
"Don’t be someone that searches, finds, and then runs away."
