"One day, a long time from now you’ll cease to care anymore whom you please or what anybody has to say about you."

"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."

"Over a lifetime, most people live a number of places before they’re old. So too with relationships—the great ones become home, even if only for a short while. But most relationships turn out to be a lot like train stations or airports where we spend a good deal of time waiting for our ‘flight.’ Granted, some airports are fascinating places with really good restaurants, interesting shops and sometimes even fascinating, romantic chance encounters. But let’s face it, you wouldn’t want to live there and you’d certainly never call one home."
