There are no beautiful surfaces without a terrible depth.
There’s a difference between a failure and a fiasco. A failure is merely the absence of success. Any fool can achieve failure. But a fiasco, a fiasco is a disaster of epic proportions. A fiasco is a folk tale told to other’s to make other people feel more alive because it didn’t happen to them.
It’s always hard when you’ve known a person a long time and then you have to recognise that you have nothing left in common but your memories.
