But the universe is a pretty cold place. It’s we who invest it with our feelings. And under certain conditions, we feel that the thing isn’t worth it anymore.
Professor Levi, from the movie Crimes and Misdemeanors
I don’t wake up early every morning. Cause the more I sleep the less I have to say.
Whenever I meet dynamic, nonretarded Americans, I notice that they all seem to share a single unifying characteristic: the inability to experience the kind of mind-blowing, transcendent romantic relationship they perceive to be a normal part of living.
In the morning there is meaning, in the evening there is feeling.
You are what you are, accept it.
Not without a fight.
We lay on our backs, looking at the ceiling and wondering what God had wrought when He made life so sad.
I guess when you’re young, you believe there will be many people whom you’ll connect with. Later in life you realize it only happens a few times.
A činim zlo i kad ništa ne činim, ostavljajući i dobro i zlo na miru. Činim zlo i kad govorim, jer ne kažem ono što bi trebalo. Činim zlo i kad ćutim, jer živim kao da me i nema. Činim zlo zato što živim, jer ne znam kako da živim.

What's the wildest thing you ever did?
I took some swimming lessons at the local baths.
Everything in the world, death, life, everything – it’s all completely suffused with static. But if you listen to the static too much, it fucks you up.
I was more alone that weekend than any. Sometimes in my sleep I’d feel a body next to me, like an amputee feels a phantom limb. All I did was think about Jenny Gerhart, and Alice Quinn, and all the decades of people I had known. The more I thought, the more I felt like crying. Life seemed so sweet, and so sad, and so hard to let go of in the end. But hey man, every day’s a brand new deal, right? Just keep on working and something’s bound to turn up.
I know I’m unloveable
You don’t have to tell me
Oh, message received
Loud and clear…
It is simply this: do not tire, never lose interest, never grow indifferent—lose your invaluable curiosity and you let yourself die. It’s as simple as that.
Swimming with dolphins. That's apparently a very good treatment for depression.
Not if they reject you. Not if they go*makes dolphin noises*and off they go. That takes you to another level.
What I’ve lost in years, I’ve gained in wisdom.” Bullshit, I haven’t learned one thing in the last fifteen years that hasn’t just depressed me more. I’d rather be oblivious again.
