Hanya Yanagihara
“Friendship was witnessing another’s slow drip of miseries, and long bouts of boredom, and occasional triumphs. It was feeling honored by the privilege of getting to be present for another person’s most dismal moments, and knowing that you could be dismal around him in return.”

“OK, so ten out of ten for style, but minus several million for good thinking, yeah?”
