The saddest word
in the whole wide world
is the word almost.

He was almost in love.
She was almost good for him.
He almost stopped her.
She almost waited.
He almost lived.
They almost made it.

“When trouble strikes, head to the library. You will either be able to solve the problem, or simply have something to read as the world crashes down around you.”

In the end I believe scientists are hopeless romantics desperate in love with the idea that the world makes sense.

Scientists have broken hearts and by combining toxic elements and reading the stars, they are able to write poetry.

“People are like whirlpools, he said. The way they pull you in. How they drag you under. You have to work so hard, just to keep your head above water.”

They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t even teach you how to be famous, how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you how to move on, or not to love someone who’s not going to love you back. They don’t teach you to say you’re okay when you’re not. Not to cry when you get hurt, or be happy when you can’t. They don’t teach you the things that you want to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.

They don’t because they can’t.
