“I always worried someone would notice me, and then when no one did, I felt lonely.”
Curtis Sittenfeld, Prep

“The better you learn to take care of yourself, the less you settle for being around people who can't or won't treat you as well as you're accustomed.”
Curtis Sittenfeld

“There are people we treat wrong and later we're prepared to treat other people right. Perhaps this sounds mercenary, but I feel grateful for these trial relationships, and I would like to think it all evens out - surely, unknowingly, I have served as practice for other people.”
Curtis Sittenfeld, Prep
