“Anyone who says they enjoy my writing is clearly either lying or has terrible taste.”

I’ll spend my whole life trying to repair myself and still die a broken person. It sounds exhausting.”

“Walking into hell is always the easiest part. It’s coming back that takes work.” “But she found a way. We always do, don’t we?”

“The plausibility of a worry has never stopped me from asking it to dance.”
