I can forgive.

Tiffany: Hey!
Pat: What the fuck? I'm married!
Tiffany: So am I!
Pat: What the fuck are you doing? Your husband's dead!
Tiffany: Where's your wife?
Pat: You're crazy!
Tiffany: I'm not the one who just got out of that hospital in Baltimore.
Pat: And I'm not the big slut!... I'm sorry... I'm sorry... I'm sorry.
Tiffany: I was a big slut, but I'm not any more. There's always going to be a part of me that's sloppy and dirty, but I like that. With all the other parts of myself. I can forgive. Can you say the same about yourself fucker? Can you forgive? Are you any good at that?

The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday.

The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday. That's guaranteed. I can't begin to explain that. Or the craziness inside myself and everyone else. But guess what? Sunday's my favorite day again. I think of what everyone did for me, and I feel like a very lucky guy.

The gory bits of me.

I thought I understood it, that I could grasp it,
but I didn't, not really.

Only the smudgeness of it; the pink-slippered,
all-containered, semi-precious eagerness of it.
I didn't realize it would sometimes be more than whole,
that the wholeness was a rather luxurious idea.

Because it's the halves that halve you in half.
I didn't know, don't know, about the in-between bits;
the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me.

No matter what. Ever,

Ex-girlfriend: Whatever happens in the end,
I don't wanna lose you as my friend.
Jack: I promise, I will never be your friend
No matter what. Ever.

Goverments should be afraid.

Un sentimiento suspendido en el tiempo.

- ¿Qué es un fantasma? 

- Un evento terrible condenado a repetirse una y otra vez, un instante de dolor, quizá algo muerto que parece por momentos vivo aún. Un sentimiento, suspendido en el tiempo, como una fotografía borrosa, como un insecto atrapado en ámbar
Un fantasma, eso soy yo.

El Espinazo del Diablo (2001) by Guillermo del Toro.

The Slut and the Falcon

Charlie: I really wanna be a writer but I don't know what I'd write about. 
Sam: You can write about us. 
Patrick: Call it 'The slut and the falcon' make us solve crimes.

And in this moment I swear, we are infinite.

I don't know if I will have the time to write anymore letters because I might be too busy trying to participate. So if this does end up being the last letter I just want you to know that I was in a bad place before I started high school and you helped me. Even if you didn't know what I was talking about or know someone who has gone through it, you made me not feel alone. Because I know there are people who say all these things don't happen. And there are people who forget what it's like to be 16 when they turn 17. I know these will all be stories someday. And our pictures will become old photographs. We'll all become somebody's mom or dad. But right now these moments are not stories. This is happening, I am here and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you're not a sad story. You are alive, and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you're listening to that song and that drive with the people you love most in this world. And in this moment I swear, we are infinite.
