Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 75863

You know what I was thinking about on my way home? How different my life would be if you'd made that gash a little deeper. Or how different yours would be if I'd vaulted myself off a roof nine years ago. Do you ever think
about things like that? Like, if either you or I wouldn't have made it, where would the other one be right now? It was something I thought about all the time: how death changes every remaining moment for those still living. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Don't do this to me, Eliza. Please. I need you." I looked at Paul. He was crying. "You don't need me," I said, wondering whether or not I believed it. He gripped my face and kissed me.

We grew apart. The thing is, we loved each other, and on some level we always will, but when you're twenty-three and you fall in love, you tend to think that love will supercede any problems.

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1904428

We're all searching for something to fill up what I like to call that big, God-shaped hole in our souls. Some people use alcohol, or sex, or their children, or food, or money, or music, or heroin. A lot of people even use the concept of God itself. I could go on and on. I used to know a girl who used shoes. She had over two-hundred pairs. But it's all the same thing, really. People, for some stupid reason, think they can escape their sorrows. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 294304

When you're twenty-three and you fall in love, you tend to think that love will supersede any problems. But no matter how much you love somebody, no matter how desperately you want a relationship to work, life can act as an oxidizer and corrode it to pieces. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1059341

So far, I've only discovered four things that make life worth living for me. My work is one of them." "What are the other three?" Jacob wanted to know. "Music, books, and sex," I said. "Not necessarily in that order." His eyebrows — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 818985

He isn't like most guys, you know?'
I know.'
No, but do you really know? I mean here's the deal, what do most guys want from a woman? I'll tell you what we want. We want a warm body to sleep next to, preferably one with a nice pair of tits, maybe someone who'll cook for us and fuck us on a regular basis. Pretty simple, huh? Now, what we don't want is someone who's going to come in and disrupt our lives and steal our souls. That's what we fear most. We call it our freedom, but it's our souls we're talking about. You following me?'
I nodded.
Okay, good. Now forget it. Forget all that,' Pete said. 'Because Jacob's not like that. He's never been like that. He's a damn fool and he wants the exact opposite of all that. He wants someone to obsess over, someone to possess his soul, and those are his corny words, by the way, not mine. It's what he lives for. It's what he thinks life's all about. Do you get what I'm saying?'
I nodded again. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 75877

The music defied classification. If I had been writing a
review of the show, I would have labeled it progressive,
guitar-driven rock 'n' roll. But the guitars made sounds guitars
didn't always make. Symphonic sounds. Sacred sounds.
The music dug in so deep you didn't hear it so much as feel
it, reminding me of a dream I used to have when I was a kid,
where I would be standing on a street corner, I would jump
into the air, flap my arms, and soar up into the sky.
That's the only way I could describe the music.
It was the sonic equivalent of flight. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 133640

You need faith for forgiveness, — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 141178

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 170628

Two at a time, Vera ate her peanut M&Ms. Except for the red ones. These, she alleged, were made from the guts of dead bugs. She put the red ones in a pile next to the salt shaker. "I'm not here to judge you, you know that. I love you no matter what happens. I just want to make sure you're making the right decision." Vera accidentally put a red candy in her mouth. She didn't notice and I didn't know whether to tell her. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 225485

Forget the noose. Forget the Iron Maiden. Forget the electric chair or the guillotine. The mind was mankind's most painful torture chamber, the blessed liberty to cogitate offering either doom or salvation, depending on one's disposition. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 237501

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 336737

It's pretty simple, really, when you think about it: We all start out as little fishes in our daddy's pants, and we all end up a Thanksgiving feast for the worms, and in the meantime we have to find a couple good reasons to give a fuck. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 529743

He called me an asshole and said, "I'll bury you!" like some comic book villain. I wanted to fucking scream my head off - I'm not your toy! Your puppet! Your whore! I'm a human goddamn being and I expect to be treated as such! Instead I told him I didn't want to be buried, I want to be cremated. And I want my ashes stored in a disco ball he can hang over his desk. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 542647

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 547869

I know that if I ever have the audacity to blame fate or God for holding a gun to my temple, I also have the wherewithal to remind myself that if I end up with a hole in my head, I was the one who pulled the trigger. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 638579

I imagined the towns were filled with people like me - lonely people who wanted to fly away, who wanted more from life than a dreary existence of one-stop shopping, but either didn't know what that meant, or didn't have the guts to go out and find it. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 642134

I instantly thought the guy was cute, in that gaunt, never-sees-the-light-of-day, New York street urchin kind of way. And he never stood still for a second. From across the tracks I read his expression as I have everything on my side except destiny, only his expression clearly hadn't informed his head or heart yet. The guy looked over and caught me staring, and once his eyes met mine they never deviated. He took several cautious steps forward, stopping abruptly at the thick yellow line you weren't supposed to cross. His arms dangled like a puppet and he seemed to skim the ground when he walked, as if suspended over the edge of the world by a hundred invisible strings. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 664095

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 719280

For me, the release was a spot in time with no past and no future. Just the extraordinary simplicity of a moment - the kind of moment that has a funny way of making a person believe that life and love can last forever. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 807774

And no matter what anybody says about grief and about time healing all wounds, the truth is, there are certain sorrows that never fade away until the heart stops beating and the last breath is taken. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 824127

I nodded, refusing to consider the possibility that any of us are doomed to die the same sorry people we sometimes become. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 930794

When dreams come true in reality they never feel the same as when you imagine them, and you know what that means? It means that no matter how good things are, maybe they'll never be good enough, and there's something seriously wrong with that. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 979595

I didn't write that song to try and win you over, or to steal you away from him. I wrote it because I knew I never could. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1110447

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1270465

Break my heart? Is that what you just said? I have news for you; you didn't break my heart. My heart's fine. My heart's in the best shape of its life. You know what you did to me? You took an AK-47 and blew my soul open. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1278253

I'm tempted to tell you that you think too much, but I'm not really one to talk,' Jacob said. 'Henry Miller wrote something about fear making you fearless. It's a very powerful emotion. Use it to get what you want. I mean if it's going to rule our life, it might as well rule you to freedom, right? — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1278277

I hadn't realized I'd been thinking aloud. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Life is short and a man should take pride in his work, even if his work makes him feel like a total loser — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1294394

To Jacob the act of critiquing art was essentially imprecise. That's why he didn't read reviews on anything he liked, be it a book, a movie, or a record. He believed that any work an artist puts forth which contains the truth as he or she sees it is worthy of consideration, and any commentary of the work beyond that is nothing more than pure individual opinion and should not be considered relevant to the work itself. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1308391

It's bad enough when people I know fuck with my life, but when pretentious bass players interfere with my destiny, then I really get pissed. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1377492

Life, Love, and the Goddamn Pursuit of Happiness. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1539835

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1547629

Fate is just another word for people's choices coming to a head. Destiny, coincidence, whatever you name it. It inevitably lies in our hands. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1551381

I took a closer look. Jesus had piercing blue eyes, dark hair that hung in a flawless mess, his body was emaciated and taut, his hands and feet dripped with blood, and nothing but a gauzy loincloth hid what looked like a nice package underneath.
"Sexy," I said. "He looks like a rock star. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1607767

It. I likened it to the intimate version of Doug's Tell me what you listen to and I'll tell you what you are theory. This was: Tell me who you fuck and I'll tell you what you are. Spiritual duplicity. "Choice betrays character," I said. "That's not true. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1613037

The phrase what I want struck me. It contains so much entitlement, so many complications, but encompasses only what a person doesn't have. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1623955

I would have remembered the good stuff.
Nobody ever remembers the good stuff. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1641654

I'd be a sucker for a guy who wrote me a song," I said. "Like Beth or Rosanna or Sara. Or Sharona. Is that too much to ask? To be somebody's Sharona? — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1643429

The past was a worthless human ability that had evolved for the sole purpose of reminding mortals of their mistakes. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1702017

And when Paul dove to embrace me, the look on his face was one of absolute, perfect joy - the kind of joy that can't be reproached, stolen, or marred - the kind that only the innocent or the ignorant are capable of experiencing. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1711315

Because a soul never truly loses hope until hope has turned to ashes, or has been buried six feet underground. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1727557

Magician, musician. Same thing. A little hocus pocus and a whole lot of faith, right? — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1749659

I'd never seen that look on another face before, had never identified it in another person. I'd only met with it in fiction. But everyone falls in love with Holden Caulfield when they're sixteen. They read Catcher in the Rye and don't feel so alone. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1751031

Real annihilation happens from the inside out. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1779990

What do you say we mark this day - the day we met - by buying each other a record? Something we think reflects our perceptions of each other. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1824138

Dawn makes a sound. If you listen closely right as the sun starts to come up, you'll hear it. It's like the echo of birth; silence, followed by a gentle push, moans, and then the sloppy deluge of life. On good days I like it because it reminds me that I am alive. On bad days it makes me feel like dust. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1825365

For the rest of the day all I could think about was that precious fruit. The mango, that is. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1908459

Swear to God, for someone so obsessed with music, she's borderline tone deaf. But trying to describe how I felt watching her dance around and sing would be like trying to build a skyscraper with my bare hands. It made me want to marry her. Made me want to buy her a magic airplane and fly her away to a place where nothing bad could ever happen. Made me want to pour rubber cement all over my chest and then lay down on top of her so that we'd be stuck together, and so it would hurt like hell if we ever tried to tear ourselves apart. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1918189

Emily didn't search to belong, she searched to be lost — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1919284

Kat and I talked about Jacob in our own private code.
"Are you baking cookies yet?" she said. That was standard for : have you fucked?
"Oh yeah. We've made a couple dozen by now."
"What kind?" In other words, was Jacob any good.
"Chocolate-chip," I said. "And he not only likes to bake them, he likes to eat them, too."
"Congratulations. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 1976204

I was insanely jealous of Lucille. More jealous than I'd ever been of anyone in my entire life. Because she truly meant it. All I could think was, why can't I be as stupid as Lucille? Why can't I blame all my successes and all my failures on The Lord Jesus Christ Almighty? I would be so fucking happy if I lived like that. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 2005194

I love you. More than I ever thought it was possible to love someone. Siamese twin lovers, identical wombs, whatever the hell you called it. All I want in life is to drive out of this horrible, soul-destroying state with you someday. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 2008155

Caelum goes: "There have been studies done on this topic, gentlemen. You could wager a bet and look it up." Caelum always talks like someone's dad when he's high. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 2063511

It was all I could do not to fall on my knees and weep like the bastard she always said I was, and I was a breath away from begging her to run away with me. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 2081063

I just happen to comprehend the low standards of the majority of the music-buying public, and I don't care how condescending that sounds, it's true. They always go for the shiny gimmicks. Always. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 2111087

I'm not messy. I'm rebelling against folding. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 2189064

Standing off to the side, stage left, I backed up, parked myself on a crate, and squeezed my knees together. The louder the music got, the harder the crate vibrated. It was like having sex with Paul's spirit until his body could step in and finish the job. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 2234385

But sometimes, talent isn't worth shit. There are tons of talentless people out there making zillions of dollars. And unfortunately, an equal number of brilliant artists whose name and voices you'll never hear. - Paul Hudson — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes 2257251

I am of the theory that all of our transcendental connections, anything we're drawn to, be it a person, a song, a painting on a wall
they're magnetic. The art is the alloy, so to speak. And our souls are equipped with whatever properties are required to attract that alloy. I'm no scientist so I don't really know what the hell these properties are, but my point is we're drawn to stuff we've already got a connection to. Part of the thing is already inside of us. — Tiffanie DeBartolo
