- Jane: Well, what do you wanna talk for, anyway? You don't care about what happened.
- Daria: How can you say that?
- Jane: You've been treating it like, "Oh well, another stupid day." The guy died.
- Daria: I know he died. I'm sorry he died. But I'm not gonna pretend that he was some great person when he wasn't. People aren't upset because Tommy Sherman died. People are upset because they're gonna die.
❝ The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are things you get ashamed of, because words make them smaller. When they were in your head they were limitless; but when they come out they seem to be no bigger than normal things. But that’s not all. The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried; they are clues that could guide your enemies to a prize they would love to steal. It’s hard and painful for you to talk about these things … and then people just look at you strangely. They haven’t understood what you’ve said at all, or why you almost cried while you were saying it. ❞
— Stephen King, The Body (via larmoyante)
❝ People will kill you over time, and how they’ll kill you is with tiny, harmless phrases, like ‘be realistic.’ ❞
— Dylan Moran (via larmoyante)
