I have to feel good on the inside to look glamorous.

"It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on."

I hear nothing, not even a sound on the streets of New York. Just the beat of my own heart. I have mail - from you.

"Dad always said this town could wreck a person. It’s what happens when you’re playing a rigged game. I convinced myself ‘winning’ meant getting out but in what world do you get to leave the ring and declare victory? This is where I belong, in the fight. It’s who I am. I’ve rolled around in the mud for so long, wash me clean and I don’t recognise myself. So, how about I just accept the mud and the tendency I have to find myself rolling in it? My name is Veronica and I’m an addict. Hello Veronica."

"I think we still live in a culture that assumes that men are single by choice and women are single because no one wants them."

Gone, Gone, Gone - Phillip Phillips
You’re my back bone, you’re my cornerstone
You’re my crutch when my legs stop moving

”It’s not true we are taking different paths. You are my path. You’ve always been my path, and you will always be.”
