"Of all the things I am not very good at, living in the real world is perhaps the most outstanding."
"I used to think that the best part of being an adult was finally “having it together.” Now I realize that adults who “have it together” are boring creatures who often die feeling unfulfilled. So make your life a big, sloppy mess. Fall in love without planning the wedding. Save for a rainy day, then create your own storms. Change your mind and change it back again. Do that thing you always wished you could be brave enough to do. Life is too short to be stuck in an endless loop of unhappiness."
