"The Bible's "it's Better To Give Than Receive" Was Not The Raving Of A Lunatic. It Goes Back To A Recurring Theme That I've Found In Almost All My Experiments: Behaviour Shapes Your Thoughts. My Brain Sees Me Giving A Gift To Julie. My Brain Concludes I Must Really Love Her. I Love Her All The More. Which Means I'm Happier In My Relationship, If A Bit Poorer."

I'm a good girl. I'm a nice girl. I'm a straight-A, strait-laced, good daughter, good career girl, and I never stole anybody's boyfriend and I never ran out on a girlfriend, and I put up with my parents' shit and brother's shit and I'm not a girl anyhow, I'm over forty fucking years old, and I'm good at my job and I'm great with kids and I held my mother's hand when she died,after four years of holding her hand while she was dying, and I speak to my father ever day on the telephone -- every day, mind you, and what kind of weather do you have on your side of the river, because here it's pretty gray and a big muggy too? It was supposed to say "Great Artist" on my tombstone, but if I died right now it would say "Such a good teacher/daughter/friend" instead; and what I really want to shout, and want in big letters on that grave, too, is FUCK YOU ALL."
