You couldn’t relive your life, skipping the awful parts, without losing what made it worthwhile. You had to accept it as a whole—like the world, or the person you loved.
Stewart O’Nan (via haughtyspirit)
I have new passions, new thoughts, new ideas. I am different, but you must not like me less. I am changed, but you must always be my friend…Don’t leave me…and don’t quarrel with me. I am what I am. There is nothing more to be said.
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
