“I believe in my mask-- The man I made up is me
I believe in my dance-- And my destiny”
Sam Shepard

“I don't understand my feelings. I really don't. I don't understand how I could hate you so much after so much time. How, no matter how much I'd like to not hate you, I hate you even more. It grows.”
Sam Shepard, Fool for Love

“You can’t keep messing me around like this. It’s been going on too long. I can’t take it anymore. I get sick every time you come around. Then I get sick when you leave. You’re like a disease to me.”
Sam Shepard, Fool for Love
