"Wendy, Wendy, when you are sleeping in your silly bed you might be flying about with me saying funny things to the stars."
"you will somehow get through
the slow days and the busy days
and the dull days and the hateful days
and the rare days,
all both so delightful and so disappointing
because we are all so alike and so different."
"Happy. Just in my swim shorts, barefooted, wild-haired, in the red fire dark, singing, swigging wine, spitting, jumping, running - that’s the way to live."
"I know of someone who, every month, would take out his calendar, pick 3 or 4 random days, and write ‘best day ever’. Whenever those days rolled around, he committed to acting like it actually was the best day ever for the entire day- he’d meet up with people to do random, crazy stuff, write letters to his friends and family complementing them, participate in class a lot more, help out friends. do community service, etc. It was a lot of fun and he says it made him a better person."
