"She was the still point of the turning world, man. I never got over that girl. Never. I mean… you know, I loved a lot of ladies, but not like that. That was real. I’ll never forget the first time I saw her. I didn’t know what had hit me. I didn’t know what to do, cause it was so easy with all the other girls, but she wouldn’t look at me. I was never the kind to pursue, if you know what I mean. That girl drove me crazy, man." // The Virgin Suicides (1999)
I’m going to be completely honest here and say i wish this man had been my father if he was going to just actually tell me the truth like this.
This is the best life lessons I’ve ever heard from a single human being. I wish my parents had taught me half of this.
