“If you do something too good, then, after a while, if you don't watch it, you start showing off. And then you're not as good any more.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

J.D. Salinger
“Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You're by no means alone on that score, you'll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You'll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

J.D. Salinger
“when you're not looking, somebody'll sneak up and write "Fuck you" right under your nose.”
