Prozac Nation (Elizabeth Wurtzel)
Soon you will understand the sweetness of crying, of ears and sorriness and pastries and calves and diaphragms and tongues, each one as soothing as the last, and this is none of it as damning as it sounds, you will enjoy it. You dread and fear it because you know not what it is, but once you feel the softness you will sing through your gags and stuffings and that disposable face of yours will be ours, because you were made to be ours, you were made for health and kindess.
When I say, ‘I love you,’ it’s not because I want you or because I can’t have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I’ve seen your kindness and your strength. I’ve seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You’re a heck of a person.

No, impassable! Nothing’s impossible.
I am trying to find the courage to be tender in my life. I know that violent people are weak people. Only the gentle are ever really strong.
