Taylor liked a quote
The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath by Sylvia Plath
“And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter— they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long.”
Sylvia Plath

Elizabeth Wurtzel
“Depression is about as close as you get to somewhere between dead and alive, and it's the worst.”
Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation

John Green
“Nerd girls are the world’s most underutilized romantic resource. And guys, do not tell me that nerd girls are not hot because that shows a Paris Hilton-esque failure to understand hotness.”
John Green

Elizabeth Wurtzel
“Forget about the scant hours in her brief life when Sylvia Plath was able to produce the works in Ariel. Forget about that tiny bit of time and just remember the days that spanned into years when she could not move, couldn’t think straight, could only lie in wait in a hospital bed, hoping for the relief that electroconvulsive therapy would bring. Don’t think of the striking on-screen picture, the mental movie you create of the pretty young woman being wheeled on the gurney to get her shock treatments, and don’t think of the psychedelic, photonegative image of this sane woman at the moment she receives that bolt of electricity. Think, instead, of the girl herself, of the way she must have felt right then, of the way no amount of great poetry and fascination and fame could make the pain she felt at that moment worth suffering. Remember that when you’re at the point at which you’re doing something as desperate and violent as sticking your head in an oven, it is only because the life that preceded this act felt worse. Think about living in depression from moment to moment, and know it is not worth any of the great art that comes a its by-product.”
Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation

Jonathan Safran Foer
“To feel alone is to be alone.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Elizabeth Wurtzel
“Divorce has taught us how to sleep with friends, sleep with enemies, and then act like it's all perfectly normal in the morning.”
Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation
