"There are many cures for sadness. One is to get up early, work, eat, play suicidally intense sports, drink, eat and go to bed early. Another is to level the whole town with a bulldozer you built yourself. My cure, which is not the best, is to drink and read and stare for months at the lake."
— Katherine Taylor, Rules for Saying Goodbye (via ransombookquotes)
"Some people turn sad awfully young. No special reason, it seems, but they seem almost to be born that way. They bruise easier, tire faster, cry quicker, remember longer and, as I say, get sadder younger than anyone else in the world. I know, for I’m one of them."
"A sad soul can kill you quicker, far quicker, than a germ."
— John Steinbeck (via kirstieeelee)
