“That's the thing about human life--there is no control group, no way to ever know how any of us would have turned out if any variables had been changed.”
“I am afraid. Not of life, or death, or nothingness, but of wasting it as if I had never been.”
“Now I understand that one of the important reasons for going to college and getting an education is to learn that the things you've believed in all your life aren't true, and that nothing is what it appears to be.”
