A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, on his character in “500 Days of Summer”
“I just want it to be over. I’m so fucking tired of being sick. You know, if this surgery doesn’t work, that’s it. And I’ve never been to fucking Canada. I’ve never told a girl I loved her.” 50/50, 2011
“…It’s just bullshit. It’s what everybody’s been saying from the beginning. Like, ‘Oh, well, you know. You’ll feel better and don’t worry and this is all fine.’ And like, it’s not. You know? I don’t know why everybody’s so fucking scared to just say it? Like, ’ You’re dying, dude.’ It makes it worse that no one will just say it.”
