last week i made $1200 working on a commercial
this week i made $60 babysitting for three hours
and now i’m off to see a comedy show because my life is a joke
when the queen falls she’s no better than a pawn
a corpse is a corpse
"My father had taught me to be nice first, because you can always be mean later, but once you’ve been mean to someone, they won’t believe the nice anymore. So be nice, be nice, until it’s time to stop being nice, then destroy them."
"My heart beat fast or did not beat at all;
I could not say all that I thought and thought
till words deserted me. I loved too abstractly."
"There’s something fairy-tale-like about it, which is perfect, because fairy tales are all about innocence and ill will and the inevitability of terrible things. They’re all about the moment when the girl is no longer who she was."
"I must learn to love the fool in me—the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of my human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my Fool."
Theodore Isaac Rubin
"My blood is alive with many voices telling me I am made of longing."
