You will learn that sometimes human beings have to just sit in one place and, like, HURT. That you will become way less concerned with what other people think of you when you realize how seldom they do. That there is such a thing as raw, unalloyed, agendaless kindness. That it is possible to fall asleep during an anxiety attack. By
  1. David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest (via avvfvl)

Of course that is not the whole story, but that is the way with stories; we make of them what we will. It’s a way of explaining the universe while leaving the universe unexplained, it’s a way of keeping it alive, not boxing it into time. Everybody who tells a story tells it differently, just to remind us that everybody sees it differently. By

Jeanette Winterson,

Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit
