Do you know what people really want? Everyone, I mean. Everybody in the world is thinking: I wish there was just one other person I could really talk to, who could really understand me, who’d be kind to me. That’s what people really want, if they’re telling the truth.
To free us from the expectations of others, to give us back to ourselves – there lies the great, singular power of self-respect.
My heart wants roots. My mind wants wings. I cannot bear their bickerings.
