So caught up in the modern world pursuits
Make your appearance here in my life.
We fall in love hoping we won’t find in another what we know is in ourselves, all the cowardice, weakness, laziness, dishonesty, compromise, and stupidity."
Alain de Botton
"You know, when you have kids, if you have kids, there’s something you should know, a very confusing thing they don’t tell you. You see so much of yourself in them. You see your ironic take on the world. You see your smile, your walk, your sense of humor, whatever. And you think they’re you. But they’re not you. And they shouldn’t have all of your baggage, your fear, and your insecurity, and your life experience, because that’s not fair. They have their own."
