“I am constantly torn between killing myself and killing everyone around me.”
David Levithan, Will Grayson, Will Grayson

“It was a mistake," you said. But the cruel thing was, it felt like the mistake was mine, for trusting you.”
David Levithan, The Lover's Dictionary

“If there's one thing I've learned, it's this: We all want everything to be okay. We don't even wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding. We will happily settle for okay, because most of the time, okay is enough.”
David Levithan, Every Day
