Being a parent… is a nightmare.
Loving somebody this much… sucks.
-Terry, “The Big Sick”
“I don’t wanna do anything I’m wishy-washy about. I just wanna do it if I love it.
In the meantime, I’m gonna work on my stand-up. I have no idea what’s going to be next.
I learned this in therapy: We’re just looking through a pinhole, and we don’t know what the fuck’s coming up next.
So instead of going; ‘Oh my God what if I never…’
You don’t have to predict what’s gonna happen. What’s gonna happen will unfold.
The future’s gonna happen whether you predict it or not.
Everything that’s happened to you so far you have not been able to predict. That’s how it’s always been.
Just stay open.”
“I really didn’t enjoy my childhood. I was not easy going.
People have this idea that, when you’re in comedy, they think you must be some free-wheeling fun person.
But I always took myself seriously, got very down on myself.
Comedy was my escape.
When I went to Harvard, I didn’t even think about going into the ‘Harvard Lampoon’ until, literally, my college roommate said ‘I’m going.’ And I said, ‘I guess I’ll go along with you.’
And that changed my life.”
Daya pikat yang memang engkau punya
Sungguh-sungguh ingin aku lindungi
Dan setelah luka-lukamu reda
Kau lupa aku juga punya rasa
Lalu kau pergi kembali dengannya
Aku pernah menyentuhmu apa kau malu
-Tulus, Langit Abu-Abu
Kau datang lagi
Kenangan lama yang sudah mati-matian kulupakan
Kau ke mana saja
Setenang apapun hidupku
Masih selalu ada
Ruang hati untuk kamu
Tulus, Kau Datang Lagi
The star shines for everyone in the world, but in reality, it itself is surrounded in darkness.
On and on we go
Always with the ghosts of us in tow
Stuck somewhere between a friend and foe
Round and round we go
Ghost, Lianne La Havas
You never see the hard days in a photo album, but those are the ones that get you from one happy snap shot to the next.
-Mr. Leezak, “Just Married” (2003)
I’m never gonna let you close to me
Even though you mean the most to me
‘Cause every time I open up, it hurts
So I’m never gonna get too close to you
Even when I mean the most to you
In case you go and leave me in the dirt
I’m way to good at goodbyes
No way that you’ll see me cry
-Too Good at Goodbyes, Sam Smith
