"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."
"Love lasts about seven years. That’s how long it takes for the cells of the body to totally replace themselves."

"One good conversation, one good break, one good TED talk, can have an enormous effect across years and even generations to come. Thirty is not the new 20s, so claim your adulthood, get some identity capital, use your weak ties, pick your family. Don’t be defined by what you didn’t know or didn’t do. You are deciding your life right now."

"We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are."

"I believe we are the architectures of our own lives. I’m not about going through life all ‘It is what it is.’ Yes, everyone is given different tools, but it is up to you to make the most of it. You can’t fuck up and then say, ‘It’s not my fault!’ You have to take responsibility. Life is 100 percent about growth."
Mila Kunis in her Marie Claire interview (Jul 2014)

"I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best."
"Even being alone, it’s better than sitting next to a lover and feeling lonely."
"I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair. Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets. Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps."
