Black Swan quotes


“Why are you still here? Why are you here at all?”

… “I’m here because you are kind and lovely and terribly, terribly brave,” he said, voice pitched low. “And because I want to be.” 

…“Oh,” she said, mind unable to catch up with the stunning joy that she felt. Joy that was, for the moment, enough to push other sorrows aside. Because it was true, somehow, he was here with her.
