Almost nothing important that ever happens to you happens because you engineer it. Destiny has no beeper; destiny always leans trenchcoated out of an alley with some sort of ‘psst’ that you usually can’t even hear because you’re in such a rush to or from something important you’ve tried to engineer. ― David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest
reach out and touch faith / your own personal Jesus / someone to hear your prayers / someone who cares / someone who’s there.
Augurarvi buona fortuna sarebbe troppo poco. (David Foster Wallace - Questa è l’acqua)
Just give me a pain that I’m used to.
There’s a strange obsession / that’s drawing us nearer. /
We don’t understand it. / It never gets clearer.
But I threw you the obvious
Just to see if there’s more behind the eyes of a fallen angel,
Eyes of a tragedy.
Take just what I came for / Then I’m out the door again
