"You only fix the things you feel deserve to be fixed, as if you’re a special kind of person who doesn’t deserve to sort their own life out because of who they are. Like your brokenness is a symptom of being you. “I can let that wait, I don’t need to do this because I don’t deserve to have it done. My life is always only ever incomplete.” And yet, no one deserves the full benefit of being you, more than you."
"Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live."
"People change and forget to tell each other."
"Dying is easy. Living is hard."
"I’m not afraid of death; I just don’t want to be there when it happens."
"What a terrible thing it is to wound someone you really care for and to do it so unconsciously."
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
"I felt the unfairness of it, the inarguable injustice of loving someone who might have loved you back but can’t due to deadness."
John Green, Looking For Alaska
