“In youth, it was a way I had,
To do my best to please.
And change, with every passing lad
To suit his theories.
-
But now I know the things I know
And do the things I do,
And if you do not like me so,
To hell, my love, with you.”
— Dorothy Parker, The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker (via quoted-books)
“'Love? I need a lot of love.'
‘Of course you do. Everyone does. It’s funny that we never say it. It’s OK to scream, ‘I’m starving’ in public if you are hungry; it’s OK to make a fuss and say, ‘I’m so sleepy’, if you are tired; but somehow we cannot say, ‘I need some more love.’ Why can’t we say it? It’s just as basic a need.’”
— Chetan Bhagat, One Night at the Call Center (via quoted-books)
