Adam Phillips Quotes

"If you want to be with somebody who gets you, you prefer collusion to desire, safety to excitement (sometimes good things to prefer but not always the things most wanted). The wish to be understood may be our most vengeful demand, may be the way we hang on, as adults, to the grudge against our mothers; the way we never let our mothers of the hook for their not meeting our every need. Wanting to be understood, as adults, can be, among many other things our most violent form of nostalgia."

Quotes About Haphazard

"A beginning is that which does not itself follow anything by causal necessity, but after which something naturally is or comes to be. An end, on the contrary, is that which itself naturally follows some other thing, either by necessity, or as a rule, but has nothing following it. A middle is that which follows something as some other thing follows it. A well constructed plot, therefore, must neither begin nor end at haphazard, but conform to these principles." - Author: Aristotle

Quotes About Showing Off Your Boyfriend

"Listen to me, Defecates-with-Pigeons. Long before any of you came here, we dreamd of you. All the people, even Nations far to the South and the West, dreamt you before ever we saw you,— we believd that you came from some other World, or the Sky. You had Powers and we respected them. Yet you never dreamd of us, and when at last you saw us, wishd only to destroy us. Then the killing started,— some of you, some of us,— but not nearly as many as wed been expecting. You could not be the Giants of long ago, who would simply have wipd us away, and for less. Instead, you sold us your Powers,— your Rifles,— as if encouraging us to shoot at you,— and so we did, tho not hitting as many of you, as you were expecting. Now you begin to believe that we have come from elsewhere, possessing Powers you do not— Those of us who knew how, have fled into Refuge in your Dreams, at last. Tho we now pursue real lives no different at their Hearts from yours, we are also your Dreams." - Author: Thomas Pynchon
