"I want to forget everything you told me. I want to wash away how uncertain you made me. How scared I was of losing you. How I lost you anyway.

Gaby Dunn

"Man is the measure of all things."

"Look, let me put it this way: with me, you’re number one and there isn’t even a number two."

Charles Bukowski, Women
