“We start off with high hopes, then we bottle it. We realise that we’re all going to die, without really finding out the big answers. We develop all those long-winded ideas which just interpret the reality of our lives in different ways, without really extending our body of worthwhile knowledge, about the big things, the real things. Basically, we live a short disappointing life; and then we die. We fill up our lives with shite, things like careers and relationships to delude ourselves that it isn’t all totally pointless.”
—Irvine Welsh, Trainspotting (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)

“The inability to communicate one’s thoughts is in very truth the most terrible of all kinds of loneliness.”
