“Did you really want to die?"
"No one commits suicide because they want to die."
"Then why do they do it?"
"Because they want to stop the pain.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“Anything less than mad, passionate, extraordinary love is a waste of time. There are too many mediocre things in life to deal with and love shouldn't be one of them.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo
“Personally, I don’t like inherently happy people. I don’t trust them. I think there’s something seriously wrong with anyone who isn’t at least a little let down by the world.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“And no matter what anybody says about grief and about time healing all wounds, the truth is, there are certain sorrows that never fade away until the heart stops beating and the last breath is taken.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo
“Break my heart? Is that what you just said? I have news for you; you didn't break my heart. My heart's fine. My heart's in the best shape of its life. You know what you did to me? You took an AK-47 and blew my soul open.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“Tell me what you listen to, and I'll tell you who you are.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“We’re all searching for something to fill up what I like to call that big, God-shaped hole in our souls. Some people use alcohol, or sex, or their children, or food, or money, or music, or heroin. A lot of people even use the concept of God itself. I could go on and on. I used to know a girl who used shoes. She had over two-hundred pairs. But it’s all the same thing, really. People, for some stupid reason, think they can escape their sorrows.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, God-Shaped Hole
“There's a big difference between being alone and being lonely. And I'm guessing that once you've discovered this distinction you can't go back to solitary confinement without serious emotional repercussions.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“Don't waste your time with fear.. Fear won't keep you safe from being hurt.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, God-Shaped Hole
“There are things we never tell anyone. We want to but we can’t. So we write them down. Or we paint them. Or we sing about them. It’s our only option. To remember. To attempt to discover the truth. Sometimes we do it to stay alive. These things, they live inside of us. They are the secrets we stash in our pockets and the weapons we carry like guns across our backs. And in the end we have to decide for ourselves when these things are worth fighting for, and when it’s time to throw in the towel. Sometimes a person has to die in order to live. Deep down, I know you know this. You just can’t seem to do anything about it. I guess it’s a sad fact of life that some of us move on and some of us inevitably stay behind. Only in this case I’m not sure which one of us is doing which. You were right about one thing though. It’s not fate. It’s a choice. And who knows, maybe we’ll meet again someday, somewhere up above all the noise. Until then, when you think of me, try and remember the good stuff. Try and remember the love.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star

“I'm not messy. I'm rebelling against folding.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“Fate is the magnetic pull of our souls toward the people, places, and things we belong with.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“It sounds silly, I know. But for me, the power of music rests in its ability to reach inside and touch the places where the deepest cuts lie.
Like a benevolent god, a good song will never let you down.
And sometimes, when you're trying to find your way, one of those gods actually shows up and gives you directions.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“The days will always be brighter because he existed.
The nights will always be darker because he's gone.
And no matter what anybody says about grief, and about time healing all wounds, the truth is, there are certain sorrows that never fade away until the heart stops beating and the last breath is taken.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, God-Shaped Hole
“Eliza has the sky in her eyes and I’ve always wanted to touch the goddamn sky.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“I am of the theory that all of our transcendental connections, anything we're drawn to, be it a person, a song, a painting on a wall--they're magnetic. The art is the alloy, so to speak. And our souls are equipped with whatever properties are required to attract that alloy. I'm no scientist so I don't really know what the hell these properties are, but my point is we're drawn to stuff we've already got a connection to. Part of the thing is already inside of us.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
tags: love
“Sometimes I would open my eyes when we were kissing, I would watch him and I could see it. I could actually see LOVE - not words, not an emotion, not an abstract concept or a subjective state of mind, but a living, breathing thing.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“Note to self: Always remember how lucky you are to wake up next to someone who thinks you're the shit.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“For what it's worth, I think happiness is a fleeting condition, not a permanent state of goddamn mind. I've learned that if you chase after moments of bliss here and there, sometimes those moments will sustain you through the shit.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“Everyone feels that void. Everyone who has the balls to look inside themselves, anyway. It's what life's all about.. A search.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, God-Shaped Hole
“Fate is just another word for people's choices coming to a head. Destiny, coincidence, whatever you name it. It inevitably lies in our hands.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“I hate that word, CAN’T. I wish it had never been dreamed
up, spoken, or defined. I wish the concept of CAN’T could be
eradicated not only from language, but more importantly from
the psyche of a girl who I know is filled with so much CAN it seeps out of her pores and scents the air.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“There’s nothing worse than falling in love with a person over and over every time you lay eyes on them, especially when you hate their goddamn guts”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“It seemed cruelly unfair to me, even then, how fast your life can change before you have an opportunity to rethink your choices. We should get second chances on the big stuff. We should come equipped with erasers attached to the tops of our heads. Like pencils. We should be able to flip over and scribble away mistakes, at least once or twice during the duration of our existence, especially in matters of life and death.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, God-Shaped Hole
“I've got my girl and my guitar, and for me that's enough.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“See that?" Paul said. "Ten goddamn seconds."
"I don't get it."
"You didn't even have to hear the whole song, just a few lines, and you got the chills and that swirly, happy-sad feeling in your gut, didn't you?" ... "That's the difference between the real stuff and the crap. I know which one you are and you know which one I am.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“I try to find meaning anywhere I can. It's the only way I know how to validate my existence.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, God-Shaped Hole
“And if my aunt had balls she'd be my uncle.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
“I’m afraid of everything. Fear of being alone, fear of being hurt, fear of being made a fool of, fear of failure... Still, I think all my fears bleed from one big one...”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, God-Shaped Hole
