“I could have loved you in the way no one else ever could and now I see that you don’t deserve any of it.”
“I do not desire mediocre love. I want to drown in someone.”
“I cannot make you understand. I cannot make anyone understand what is happening inside me. I cannot even explain it to myself.”
Franz Kafka, The Metamorphosis
“I know I have a heart because I feel it breaking.”
Wizard of Oz. Dir. Victor Fleming.
“I love no one but you, I have discovered, but you are far away and I am here alone. Then this is my life and maybe, however unlikely, I’ll find my way back there. Or maybe, one day, I’ll settle for second best, And on that same day, hell will freeze over, the sun will burn out and the stars will fall from the sky.”
Ian Thomas, The Grim Alternatives
