At 16 you left home, at 17 you stood in front of a film camera, at 19 you bought an apartment, at 20 you tied the knot for the first time, at 24 for the second time and at 26 you adopted your first child. What’s the rush?
You’re right, I was in a damn hurry. My driving force was that I only believed in today and was full of panic to live my life only just half. My grandmother and my mother died early. That’s why I’ve never believed that there could be fairy tales, happy endings and a perfect family in my life. I have to work on being able to take a deep breath and to enjoy my life. Because I know how abruptly life can be over I’m always thinking at the end of the day, that I haven’t done enough. I simply can’t let go of this feeling of urgency. - Angelina Jolie.
Chissà se un giorno riuscirai ancora a ricordare come cambiava di colpo il mio sguardo, quando guardavo te.
Avevo gli occhi intrisi di quella voglia disperata di chi voleva te sopra ogni cosa.
Nessuno ti guarderà mai più così.
In tanti altri modi magari sì, ma mai più così.
