“There’s one person’s LiveJournal that I’ve read for the past few years. It’s really two people—they’re a couple and they live in Boston and they foster pit bulls. For some reason I clung onto them five or six years ago. I don’t know how I found them, but I check in on both of them all the time. I sent the guy a book he was saying he wanted. I hoped he’d write on his blog, “A mysterious stranger sent me the book I wanted,” but he never did.”—
Has anyone found this LiveJournal yet? This post has been up for a few hours. You know, in a microcosm, this is sort of my own relationship with a lot of blogs and it’s kind of cool to hear a celebrity/famous artist say something like this.
“So now the sadness comes— the revelation. There is a depression after an answer is given. It was almost fun not knowing. Yes, now we know. At least we know what we sought in the beginning. But there is still the question: why? And this question will go on and on until the final answer comes. Then the knowing is so full, there is no room for questions.”—Log Lady, Twin Peaks (via herbstzeitlose)
“When we’re incomplete, we’re always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we’re still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on … until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.”—Tom Robbins (via myquotelibrary)
