"I hadn’t realized how much I’d been needing to meet someone I might be able to say everything to."
"I didn’t realize it, but the days came along one after another, and then two years were gone, and everything was gone, and I was gone."
"People think they know you. They think they know how you’re handling a situation. But the truth is no one knows. No one knows what happens after you leave them, when you’re lying in bed or sitting over your breakfast alone and all you want to do is cry or scream. They don’t know what’s going on inside your head—the mind-numbing cocktail of anger and sadness and guilt. This isn’t their fault. They just don’t know. And so they pretend and they say you’re doing great when you’re really not. And this makes everyone feel better. Everybody but you."
"Seeing someone read a book you love is seeing a book recommend a person."
