„Je mi z toho velice smutno, ale dnes žijeme s pocitem, že kolem se daří korupci a nelze proti tomu nic moc dělat. Je to depresívní, ale každý spisovatel by se měl stavět proti podobným věcem. O čem by jinak měl psát? “

„Remember this... develop a sense of nostalgia for something, or you'll never figure out what's important.“ Super Sad True Love Story


„If you stop thinking, if you stop wondering, you die.“ Super Sad True Love Story

„There's nothing wrong with her except she's completely fucked up.“ Super Sad True Love Story

„Do not throw away your heart. Keep your heart. Your heart is all that matters... Throw away your ancestors!... Throw away your shyness and the anger that lies just a few inches beneath...

„We know summer is the height of of being alive. We don't believe in God or the prospect of an afterlife mostly, so we know that we're only given eighty summers or so per lifetime, and each one has to be better then the last, has to encompass a trip to that arts center up at Bard, a seemingly mellow game of badminton over at some yahoo's Vermont cottage, and a cool, wet, slightly dangerous kayak trip down an unforgiving river. Otherwise, how would you know that you have lived your summertime best? What is you missed out on some morsel of shaded nirvana?“ Super Sad True Love Story

„My hair would continue to gray, and then one day, it would fall out entirely, and then, on a day meaninglessly close to the present one, meaninglessly like the present one, I would disappear from the earth. And all these emotions, all these yearnings, all these data, if that helps to clinch the enormity of what I'm talking about, would be gone. And that's what immortality means. It means selfishness. My generations belief that each one of us matters more than you or anyone else would think.“ Super Sad True Love Story

„By reading this message you are denying its existence and implying consent.“ Super Sad True Love Story

„Let's see if I can write about something other than my heart.“ Super Sad True Love Story

„The fading light is us, and we are, for a moment so brief (...) beautiful.“ Super Sad True Love Story

„Maybe this is who I really am.

Not a loner, exactly.

But someone who can be alone.“
