“It was that way from the beginning. I resisted my parents, then I resisted school, then I resisted becoming a decent citizen. It’s like whatever I was, was there from the beginning. I didn’t want anybody tinkering with that. I still don’t.”—Charles Bukowski
“If somebody likes me, I want them to like the real me, not what they think I am. And I don’t want them to carry it around inside. I want them to show me, so I can feel it, too. I want them to be able to do whatever they want around me.”—Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Lust: Something that I find attractive. Pride: Something that I like about myself. Sloth: Something that I dislike about myself. Envy: Something I wish I was better at. Gluttony: One of my favorite foods. Wrath: Something that gets me angry. Greed: Something I can’t get enough of.
“Tired of lying in the sunshine, staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun”—Pink Floyd
