but it is a hard job to get her to read. Television's just too easy.

It's kind of funny ... the moments on which life hinges. I think growing up you always imagine your life
your success
depends on your family and how much money they have, where you go to college, what sort of job you can pin down, starting salary ... But it doesn't, you know.

David Levithan Quotes: Heres what i think we all want someone
Here's what I think. We all want someone to build a fort with. We want somebody to swap crayons with and play hide-and-seek with and live out imaginary stories with.

But really, when you take sex out of it, what we want is a companion. And we make that so damn hard to find.

— Per Petterson
