Too early for the rainbow,
"It is so nice when you can sit with someone and not have to talk."
"I value my independence above all things. That way, I don't have any expectations to fulfill."
"And every passing year is just a deeper shade of grey."
"E se me achar esquisita, respeite também. Até eu fui obrigada a me respeitar."
"Só então vestia-se de si mesma, passava o resto do dia representando com obediência o papel de ser."
“I really don’t know what 'I love you' means. I think it means 'Don’t leave me here alone'."
"Too many guys think I'm a concept, or I complete them, or I'm gonna make them alive. But I'm just a fucked-up girl who's lookin' for my own peace of mind; don't assign me yours."
"When we were children, we used to think that when we grew up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability, to be alive is to be vulnerable."
"People fall out of the world sometimes, but they always leave traces, little things you can't quite account for: faces in photographs; luggage; half-eaten meals; rings. Nothing is ever forgotten, not completely."

"We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered."
"And I did wonder - because it's now three years ago since I left prison - whether there would come a time when I would forget it, or it would be in the past as anything else might be - no, it's there every day of my life."
