"To myself, these reminders: Don’t think that you can do any good. Don’t tell people things. Don’t try to get them to be you. For instance, don’t make them tapes of songs that they have never heard. All you are doing is trying to impress them and make them more like you by getting them to like the same things you do. You want the company of others as long as they are like you. If they are different, you try to make them into you. That might be the reason you lost that nice girl."
—Henry Rollins, Smile, You’re Traveling, (pg 160)
"It hurts to let go. Sometimes it seems the harder you try to hold on to something, or someone, the more it wants to get away. You feel like some kind of criminal for having felt, for having wanted. For having wanted to be wanted. It confuses you, because you think that your feelings were wrong and it makes you feel so small because it’s so hard to keep it inside when you let it out and it doesn’t come back. You’re left so alone that you can’t explain. Damn, there’s nothing like that, is there? I’ve been there and you have too. You’re nodding your head."
