-I can’t tell who’s ahead.
-It can change from moment to moment.

-You have to be a masochist to enjoy that kind of punishment, don’t you think?
Masters of Sex 2x03
Filmmaker Richard Linklater (born July 30, 1960)
I decided to stop pitying myself. Other than my eye, two things aren’t paralyzed, my imagination and my memory.
I can totally relate to going against the grain. I figure: Why would you want to do what everyone else is doing? God help you if you’re understood by the world. - John Cusack
It’s great to live by the spirit, to testify day by day for eternity, only what’s spiritual in people’s minds. But sometimes I’m fed up with my spiritual existence. Instead of forever hovering above I’d like to feel a weight grow in me to end the infinity and to tie me to earth. I’d like, at each step, each gust of wind, to be able to say “Now.” Now and now” and no longer “forever” and “for eternity.” To sit at an empty place at a card table and be greeted, even by a nod.
Oh, darling. Don’t you know I would never marry a man I didn’t both l o v e and d e s i r e?
You don’t want to go anywhere, and that’s why the same shit’s going to keep happening to you, because you want it to.
