I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.

I never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person.

"Never mind," I answered, "I have all the facts in my journal, and the public shall know them. In the meantime you must make yourself contented by the consciousness of success, like the Roman miser —

"`Populus me sibilat, at mihi plaudo
Ipse domi simul ac nummos contemplar in arca.’”

— Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, from A Study in Scarlet (via the-final-sentence)

Don’t get starry-eyed about somebody you can’t have, especially if it blinds you to somebody who’s really important.
