“Are you OLD?"
"No. I'm only twelve. But I've been that for a long time.”
John Ajvide Lindqvist, Let the Right One In

“There was no one to be seen so she gave in freely to her sobs as she made her way home, pressed her arms against her stomach; the pain lodged in there like an ill-tempered foetus.
Let a person in and he hurts you.
There was a reason why she kept her relationships brief. Don't let them in. Once they're inside they have more potential to hurt you. Comfort yourself. You can live with the anguish as long as it only involves yourself. As long as there is no hope.”
John Ajvide Lindqvist, Let the Right One In
