“Moments never stay, whether or not you ask them, they do not care, no moment cares, and the ones you wish could stretch out like a hammock for you to lie in, well, those moments leave the quickest and take everything good with them, little burglars, those moments, those hours, those days you loved the most.”
Catherine Lacey, Nobody Is Ever Missing

“I'm not a person who needs people, but I am the kind of person who needs to be near people who don't need me.”
Catherine Lacey, Nobody Is Ever Missing

“[...] being occasionally destroyed is, I think, a necessary part of the human experience.”
