“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”—1 Corinthians 13:4
“Every returning New Yorker asks the question: Is this still my city?
I have a ready answer, cloaked in obstinate despair: It is.
And if it’s not, I will love it all the more. I will love it to the point where it becomes mine again.”—Super Sad True Love Story, Gary Shteyngart
I just came home to an ambulance along the road, police cordon around my block and a blue tent that unconsciously sent shivers down my spine.
Then I learnt that somebody just jumped to their death. Fuck I was so scared when I knew that, and I don’t even know why. It seems so surreal. It should have only happened on TV. This shouldn’t be so close and so real.
