"

You meet a girl: shy, unassuming. If you tell her she’s beautiful, she’ll think you’re sweet, but she won’t believe you. She knows that beauty lies in your beholding… And sometimes that’s enough.”

"But there’s a better way. You show her she is beautiful. You make mirrors of your eyes, prayers of your hands against her body. It is hard, very hard, but when she truly believes you… Suddenly the story she tells herself in her own head changes. She transforms. She isn’t seen as beautiful. She is beautiful, seen.

If you ever feel like you’ve screwed up, just remember that in 1348 the Scots thought it would be a good idea to invade England because the English were weakened by the Plague. They subsequently caught the plague themselves, went back to Scotland, and killed half their own population.

Fuck catty bitches. Predominant in—but not limited to—those of the female disposition, catty bitches are those lost in realities constructed on foundations of insecurity and bitterness. Fallacious circumvention and passive aggressive bullshit are natural paths to take when your only way up is to tear others down.

A first-rate scientist partial to beer … the kind of mind that needed dulling to slow it down or to distance itself from the possibility of despair.

Beer versus scientist represented a kind of schism between the banality of speech versus the originality of thought. An ongoing battle.
