“Carpe Diem, just remember that we're partying on the Titanic.”

“The guaranteed cure for heartbreak: find pain that’s much, much worse.”
Will McIntosh, Love Minus Eighty

“It's funny. Friendships are Catch twenty-twos when you're single and in your thirties. Friends are your life rafts. You try to help each other meet people, you confide in each other, you spend Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day, all those emotional land-mine holidays together.

Will McIntosh, Love Minus Eighty
