"I have this saying: ‘Things have an awfully funny way of working out.’ Actually— I changed it recently. Now I say: ‘Things have an awfully funny way of working out. If you make them work out.’"
“What caused you to change your saying?”
“Things weren’t working out.”

bara inbilla dig. bara inbilla dig, det är skönt fram tills du inte kan blunda för sanningen längre. då gör det ondare än det gjorde från början.

I believe that there is one story in the world, and only one… . Humans are caught—in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too—in a net of good and evil… . There is no other story. A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean questions: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well—or ill?

— John Steinbeck

som att simma i motström och ingenstans att vila. som att minnas sånt man önskade var och längta tillbaka till enklare tider. som att vilja annat. som att brinna för något men glömma bort vad som startade elden. som att önska att saker och ting var annorlunda. som att ångra val och beslut. som att vilja uppleva det fina igen. som att fundera för mycket under natten. som att sakna det som varit.


I fucking love this. For me this just reinforces how trivial a lot of stuff in life is. Ultimately we all end up skeletons in the ground so fucking enjoy your time here by whatever means, we all have a finite amount of time.
