"WE ARE SEX BOB-OMB AND WE’RE HERE TO MAKE YOU THINK ABOUT DEATH AND GET SAD AND STUFF"
"I always fall in love with people that I’m acting with. I’m a sucker for that kind of thing. It really helps me to fall in love with people, both as friends and even sometimes romantically, because it’s easier for me to then have that connection on screen. Doing movies and TV shows is like summer camp: Everyone falls in love and bonds and gets really attached, and then when it’s over it’s really sad. I’m actually really, really scared for when Parks and Recreation is over because I think we’ll all be pretty devastated."
Life in general is pretty minimizing because you have a lot of big ideas and you have to battle the mistaken delusions and instability that come with youth. And then watching that just wither away as you become more of a realist is a harrowing experience for any human being. I just think you gotta have a good fucking attitude.
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
it is our choices that show who we truly are, far more than our abilities
