So therefore I dedicate myself to myself, my art, my sleep, my dreams, my labors, my suffrances, my loneliness, my unique madness, my endless absorption and hunger- because I cannot dedicate myself to any fellow being.
— Jack Kerouac

It was not the thought that I was so unloved that froze me. I had taught myself to do without love.
It was not the thought that God was cruel that froze me. I had taught myself never to expect anything from Him.
What froze me was the fact that I had absolutely no reason to move in any direction. What had made me move through so many dead and pointless years was curiosity.
Now even that had flickered out.
How long I stood frozen there, I cannot say. If I was ever going to move again, someone else was going to have to furnish the reason for moving.
Somebody did.
A policeman watched me for a while, and then he came over to me, and he said, “You alright?”
Yes,” I said.
You’ve been standing here a long time,” he said.
I know,” I said.
You waiting for somebody?” he said.
No,” I said.
Better move on, don’t you think?” he said.
Yes, sir,” I said.
And I moved on.

You don’t want to be in love. You want to be in love in a movie.

“So I know you’d never believe this looking at me right now, but I used to get picked on in school too… They’d call me weird. I was weird, fun weird.
But this is the funny thing about growing up. For years and years, everybody’s desperately afraid to be different in any way.
And then suddenly, almost overnight, everybody wants to be different.

And that, is where we win.”

— Mitchell Pritchett, Modern Family S01E18

Sheldon:I question your premise. How is a new suit going to prevent me from passing out in front of a ballroom full of people?
Penny:It'll give you confidence. You know, sometimes when I'm feeling all stressed out about something, I go out and buy a cute top or a fun skirt, and I have a whole new outlook on life.
Sheldon:Don't you eventually realize you're just the same stressed-out person in a cute top or a fun skirt?
Penny:Yep, that's when I buy shoes.

I take my hat off to you, dear sir.

I love the opportunity, wherever there is one, to adorn, to decorate, to scent, to dress. That’s what fashion’s all about. It’s not necessary, it’s something you want—it’s a fancy and a whim
