Augusten Burroughs
“I, myself, am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.”
Augusten Burroughs

Augusten Burroughs
“It’s a wonder I’m even alive. Sometimes I think that. I think that I can’t believe I haven’t killed myself. But there’s something in me that just keeps going on. I think it has something to do with tomorrow, that there is always one, and that everything can change when it comes.”
Augusten Burroughs, Running with Scissors

Augusten Burroughs
“My mother began to go crazy. Not in a 'Let's paint the kitchen red!' sort of way. But crazy in a 'gas oven, toothpaste sandwhich, I am God' sort of way.”
Augusten Burroughs, Running with Scissors

Augusten Burroughs
“Although my parents never attended church or mentioned Jesus except when they screamed at each other—and then they used his full name, 'Jesus Fucking Christ”
Augusten Burroughs, Possible Side Effects

Augusten Burroughs
“I'm lonely. And I'm lonely in some horribly deep way and for a flash of an instant, I can see just how lonely, and how deep this feeling runs. And it scares the shit out of me to be this lonely because it seems catastrophic.”
Augusten Burroughs, Dry
