It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.

"Stay with the pain, don’t shut this out. Without pain, without sacrifice we would have nothing. This is your pain. This is your burning hand its right here. This is the greatest moment of your life and you’re off somewhere missing it. First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that one day you are going to die. Its only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything."
Fight Club (1999) Directed by David Fincher
This is the chemical formula for love:
dopamine, seratonin, oxytocin.
It can be easily manufactured in a lab, but overdosing on any of them can cause schizophrenia, extreme paranoia, and insanity.
Let that sink in.
“Well, it seems to me that the best relationships - the ones that last - are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is… suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.”
-Dana Scully, The X-Files
Maybe I was destined to forever fall in love with people I couldn’t have. Maybe there’s a whole assortment of impossible people waiting for me to find them. Waiting to make me feel the same impossibility over and over again. -
