Maybe we should all decide we're going to meet the man of our dreams when we're thirty-seven. Then we'll stop squeezing into tight shirts and walking around half-naked and analyzing every encounter as future husband material. We’ll stop feeling the need to put on makeup to take out the trash just in case he's walking by. Maybe we should just assume that we'll meet our dream man at some future point, and stop driving ourselves crazy before then.

- Harper Lee,To Kill A Mockingbird

Life had gone on. It always did. That's what you learned as you got older. Time. It kept moving. You couldn't stop it. You couldn't go back to the moments you wished you could change. They were gone. They left you in a snap.

- Lee Martin, The Bright Forever

Rock bottom is everything out of focus. It's a failure of vision, a failure to see the world as it is, to see the good in what it is, & only to wonder why the hell things look the way they do & not, not some other way.
