"You think relationships are difficult? Try friendships. Try courting someone in order to convince them to join you in some nameless, shapeless platonic complication — forever. Convince an adult stranger that you are worth a healthy slice of their limited time and energy without the prize of sex or romance."
"I’ll tell you the truth is that, I mean, I’m a romantic and I kinda believe in this fairytale. In some ways I think that has always been to my advantage because if you can believe in something great, I feel like you can achieve something great. I had that same belief system with everything. From my career to my life, my personality; everything. And I will do everything it takes to strive for that, and I DID everything it took… but it still failed. The bad that comes along with the good is a journey and I learned so much from that journey.” ~Katy Perry"
"Every single person has at least one secret that would break your heart. If we could just remember this, I think there would be a lot more compassion and tolerance in the world."
