Love is bullshit. Emotion is bullshit.
That if you could acquire enough, accomplish enough, you'd never want to own or do another thing. That if you could eat or sleep enough, you'd never need more. That if enough people loved you, you'd stop needing love.
There are a lot of things we don't want to know about the people we love.
Waiters will always pee in soup, people will always fall in love.
You always kill the one you love.
Even if I overcompensate, nobody will ever want me. Not Seth. Not my folks. You canÆt kiss someone who has no lips. Oh, love me, love me, love me, love me, love me, love me, love me, love me, love me. IÆll be anybody you want me to be
Anybody's true nature is bullshit. There is no human soul. Emotion is bullshit. Love is bullshit.
If it comes down to a choice between being unloved and being vulnerable and sensitive and emotional, then you can just keep your love.
That old saying, how you always hurt the one you love, well, it works both ways
Love is bullshit. Emotion is bullshit. I am a rock. A jerk. I'm an uncaring asshole and proud of it.
Love me, I'll be anyobdy you want me to be. Use me. Change me. I can be thin with big breasts and big hair. Take me apart. Make me into anything, but just love me.
That quest for something pretty. A cheat. A cliche. Flowers and Christmas lights, it's what we're programmed to love.
I thought we were a real love relationship. I did. I was very invested in love, but it was just this long long sex thing that could end at any moment because after all, it's just about getting off. Almost all the time, you tell yourself you're loving somebody when you're just using them. This only looks like love.
I've met God across his long walnut desk with his diplomas hanging on the wall behind him, and God asks me, Why Why did I cause so much pain Didn't I realize that each of us is a sacred, unique snowflake of special unique specialness Can't I see how we're all manifestations of love I look at God behind his desk, taking notes on a pad, but God's got this all wrong. We are not special. We are not crap or trash, either. We just are. We just are, and what happens just happens. And God says, No, that's not right. Yeah. Well. Whatever. You can't teach God anything.
People have to really suffer before they can risk doing what they love.
That saying, about how you always kill the thing you love, well, it works both ways.
Experts in ancient Greek culture say that people back then didnt see their thoughts as belonging to them. When ancient Greeks had a thought, it occurred to them as a god or goddess giving an order. Apollo was telling them to be brave. Athena was telling them to fall in love. Now people hear a commercial for sour cream potato chips and rush out to buy, but now they call this free will. At least the ancient Greeks were being honest.
