"...because that’s what living is,"

“When you get old, in life, things get taken from you. I mean, that’s a part of life. But, you only learn that when you start losing stuff. You find out life’s this game of inches, so is football. Because in either game, life or football, the margin for error is so small. I mean, one half a step too late or too early and you don’t quite make it. One half second too slow, too fast and you don’t quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us… And I know if I’m going to have any life anymore it’s because I’m still willing to fight and die for that inch, because that’s what living is, the six inches in front of your face.” — Al Pacino, Any Given Sunday

You can..

erase someone from your mind. Getting them out of your heart is another story.

-Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

The heart is...

the only broken instrument that works
