“[Patricia Highsmith] was an extremely unbalanced person, extremely hostile and misanthropic and totally incapable of any kind of relationship, not just intimate ones. I felt sorry for her, because it wasn't her fault. There was something in her early days or whatever that made her incapable. She drove everybody away and people who really wanted to be friends ended up putting the phone down on her.
It seemed to me as if she had to ape feelings and behaviour, like Ripley. Of course sometimes having no sense of social behaviour can be charming, but in her case it was alarming. I remember once, when she was trying to have a dinner party with people she barely knew, she deliberately leaned towards the candle on the table and set fire to her hair. People didn't know what to do as it was a very hostile act and the smell of singeing and burning filled the room.”
Andrew Wilson, Patricia Highsmith, ζωή στο σκοτάδι

“The main problem of a person with victim mentality is that he is incapable of thinking over his life and consequently cannot reach his goals”
Sunday Adelaja

Rainer Maria Rilke
“It is also good to love: because love is difficult. For one human being to love another human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate task, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is merely preparation. That is why young people, who are beginners in everything, are not yet capable of love: it is something they must learn.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

“As the new year began, [Patricia Highsmith] felt completely paralysed, incapable of reading or picking up the phone. 'I can feel my grip loosening on my self,' she wrote. 'It is like strength failing in the hand that holds me above an abyss.' She wished there was a more awful-sounding word for what she was feeling than simply 'depression'. She wanted to die, she said, but then realised that the best course of action would be to endure the wretchedness until it passed. Her wish was, 'Not to die, but not to exist, simply, until this is over'.”
Andrew Wilson, Patricia Highsmith, ζωή στο σκοτάδι

“A person with a victim complex is incapable of achieving his goal without someone’s assistance, advice and prompts”

“This must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays”

“Those who show lack of effort with themselves will be incapable of making any real honest effort towards you.”
