“Remember: the time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be by yourself. Life's cruelest irony.”
Douglas Coupland, Shampoo Planet

“And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can't ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one.

“I don't deserve a soul, yet I still have one. I know because it hurts.”
Douglas Coupland, The Gum Thief
