It is only shallow people who require years to get rid of an emotion. A man who is master of himself can end a sorrow as easily as he can invent a pleasure. I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.
Sometimes people let the same problem make them miserable for years when they could just say, So what. That’s one of my favorite things to say. So what.
I never would have asked you for forever. I just wanted one moment with you that was real.
I know it’s really nice to think that the people you meet in your freshman dorm will be your friends for the rest of forever, but this is not exactly realistic. You’ll learn to weed out those friends that were there just to “party” and get drunk with. You realize who is really there for you and who was just there to make the moment more memorable. I am a firm believer of people being put into our lives for a certain purpose, but some are just there to help you get through a certain phase or moment. However, when you meet the friends that you want to be smiling at when you walk down the aisle, it’s a really incredible feeling. It’s almost scary because even though you just built these friendships in college, at this point in your life, you can’t imagine what your life would be without them.
