→ Ordinary lives. Extraordinary emotions.
→ Why do we want what we can’t have?
♦ You gotta admit… even adultery has morality to it.
♦ You say, “You are what you do”? Who really believes that? I mean, what does that mean? Does that mean I’m a cook, an errand runner, a fucker, a goddamn cleaning lady? Because if you, you bastard, lost all discipline and folded up, and turned drunk and got bald and lost everything, I’d love you. I love you. You, Jack.
♦ If you want important, go work in a cancer ward with people who are puking from chemo. Or teach math to a kid who’s brain damaged from fetal alcohol syndrome.
