“I always think everything is going to last forever, but nothing ever does. In fact nothing exists longer than an instant except the thing that we hold in memory”
Sam Savage, Firmin

“Unrequited love is bad, but unrequitable love can really get you down.”
Sam Savage, Firmin: Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife

“I had learned from my reading that you can do really awful things when you are bored, things that are bound to make you miserable. In fact, you do them in order to become miserable, so you won't have to be bored anymore.”
Sam Savage, Firmin: Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife
