“It was interesting, how much of adult life consisted of pretending.”
Kevin Canty, Into the Great Wide Open

“Also: people pretended not to want what they wanted. Pretending tried to hide the will. That was the secret of adult life, the undisclosed motor of the whole thing. People wanted what they wanted. They did what they could to get it. It wasn't complicated. Kenny knew that was the last step he needed to take before he could be an adult: he had to learn what he wanted, then had to learn to want what he wanted.”
Kevin Canty, Into the Great Wide Open

“I don't go to school, I don't have parents, I came from the sea to be your husband.”
Kevin Canty, Into the Great Wide Open
