So she had to satisfy herself with the idea of love—loving the loving of things whose existence she didn’t care at all about. Love itself became the object of her love. She loved herself in love, she loved loving love, as love loves loving, and was able, in that way, to reconcile herself with a world that fell so short of what she would have hoped for. It was not the world that was the great and saving lie, but her willingness to make it beautiful and fair, to live a once-removed life, in a world once-removed from the one in which everyone else seemed to exit.

Why didn't I learn to treat everything like it was the last time. My greatest regret was how much I believed in the future.

I started inventing things, and then I couldn't stop, like beavers, which I know about. People think they cut down trees so they can build dams, but in reality it's because their teeth never stop growing, and if they didn't constantly file them down by cutting through all of those trees, their teeth would start to grow into their own faces, which would kill them. That's how my brain was.

I missed you even when I was with you. That’s been my problem. I miss what I already have, and I surround myself with things that are missing.

…the closeness between them, even though they're not looking at each other? The way that they aren't looking at each other. The distance. It's very powerful, don't you think?
