“Today, I asked my mentor – a very successful business man in his 70’s – what his top 3 tips are for success. He smiled and said, “Read something no one else is reading, think something no one else is thinking, and do something no one else is doing.” MMT”—

“Relationships don’t work the way they do on television and in the movies: will they, won’t they, then they finally do and they’re happy forever, give me a break. 9 out of 10 of them end because they weren’t right for each other to begin with and half the ones that get married get divorced anyway. And I’m telling you right now through all this stuff i have not become a cynic, I haven’t. Yes, I do happen to believe that love is mainly about pushing chocolate-covered candies and, you know, in some cultures, a chicken. You can call me a sucker, I don’t care, because I do, believe in it. Bottom line - couples that are truly right for each other wade through the same crap as everyone else but the big difference is they don’t let it take them down. One of those two people will stand up and fight for that relationship every time, if it’s right, and they’re real lucky. One of them will say something.”—Dr. Cox - Scrubs
I drove by your work today and saw your car in the lot with the dent in the bumper from the time you crashed into a tree after dropping me off the first time. I remembered all the times we kissed, leaning against that car.
I’m really going to miss that old piece of crap car that I should be embarrassed to drive in, but I never am since you are there with me…
“A little reflection soon shows how inconceivable it is really to love others (not merely to need them), if one cannot love oneself as one really is. And how could a person do that if, from the very beginning, he has had no chance to experience his true feelings and to learn to know himself? For the majority of sensitive people, the true self remains deeply and thoroughly hidden. But how can you love something you do not know, something that has never been loved? So it is that many a gifted person lives without any notion of his or her true self.”—Alice Miller, The Drama of The Gifted Child
“I didn’t know why I was going to cry, but I knew that if anybody spoke to me or looked at me too closely the tears would fly out of my eyes and the sobs would fly out of my throat and I’d cry for a week. I could feel the tears brimming and sloshing like water in a glass that is unsteady and too full.”—
“What I want is to be needed. What I need is to be indispensable to somebody. Who I need is somebody that will eat up all my free time, my ego, my attention. Somebody addicted to me. A mutual addiction.”—Chuck Palahniuk
“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love.”—Washington Irving
