“Disappointment came to me,
and booted me,
and bruised and hurt me,
but that's how people grow up.”
“Now this might disturb you, but I find I'm OK by myself;
and I don't need you or your benevolence to make sense.”
“I can chase you, and I can catch you,
but there is nothing I can do to make you mine.”
“Don't leave it all unsaid,
somewhere in the wasteland of your head.”
“When I'm lying in my bed I think about life and I think about death and neither one particularly appeals to me.”
“I don't mind if you forget me.
Having learned my lesson,
I never left an impression on anyone.”
“I was wasting my time, praying for love.
For a love that never comes, from someone who does not exist.”
“I am hated for loving.
I am haunted for wanting.”
“So the life I have made
May seem wrong to you
But, I've never been surer
It's my life to ruin
My own way...”
“There are more than enough
to fight and oppose;
why waste good time
fighting the people you like?”
“You say: 'Oh, please forgive'
You say: 'Oh, live and let live.'
But sorry doesn't help us.
Sorry will not save us.
Sorry is just a word you find so easy to say (so you say it anyway).
Sorry doesn't help us.
Sorry won't protect us.
Sorry won't undo all the good gone wrong.”
“Age shouldn't affect you. It's just like the size of your shoes - they don't determine how you live your life! You're either marvelous or you're boring, regardless of your age.”
“A sad fact widely known
The most impassionate song
To a lonely soul
Is so easily outgrown..."
"And when you're dancing and laughing
And finally living
Hear my voice in your head
And think of me kindly”

Dan: And you left him, just like that?
Alice: It's the only way to leave. "I don't love you anymore. Goodbye."
Dan: Supposing you do still love them?
Alice: You don't leave.
Dan: You've never left someone you still love?
Dan: I fell in love with her, Alice.
Alice: Oh, as if you had no choice? There's a moment, there's always a moment, "I can do this, I can give into this, or I can resist it", and I don't know when your moment was, but I bet you there was one.
Dan: Deception is brutal, I'm not pretending otherwise.
Alice: How? How does it work? How do you do this to someone?
[Dan is silent]
Alice: Not good enough!
Dan: It's not safe out there.
Alice: Oh, and it's safe in here?
Alice: I don't want to lie. I can't tell the truth. So it's over.
Alice: How can one man be so endlessly disappointing?
Dan: That's my charm.
Larry: She doesn't want to be happy.
Dan: Everybody wants to be happy.
Larry: Depressives don't. They want to be unhappy to confirm they're depressed. If they were happy they couldn't be depressed anymore. They'd have to go out into the world and live. Which can be depressing.
Alice: Where is this love? I can't see it, I can't touch it. I can't feel it. I can hear it. I can hear some words, but I can't do anything with your easy words.
