❝ one day, I saw John sitting in bed and crying. and I said, ‘what happened?’ and he was reading a book called The First Sex and it’s a book about how women did not get credit at all for what they did in history. and he said, ‘I didn’t know that we were doing this to women.’ he had a very soft heart, you know?
❝ a beautiful girl can make you dizzy, like you’ve been drinking Jack and Coke all morning. she can make you feel high, full of the single greatest commodity known to man — promise. promise of a better day. promise of a greater hope. promise of a new tomorrow. this particular aura can be found in the gait of a beautiful girl. in her smile, in her soul, in the way she makes every rotten little thing about life seem like it’s going to be okay.
