"Your heart’s broken but your whole body hurts. Then you get into bed at night, thankful to be back in a safe haven under the covers where you can cry alone and not be judged for being so weak to another human being, when all of our lives we are taught to be independent. And after a silent moment in the dark, you swear that your heart is completely crushed and it just can’t hurt anymore, so you fall asleep praying to God that you don’t dream of them for another night in a row. Then you wake up the next morning with, somehow, a whole heart again but like clockwork, the cycle starts over and the pieces begin to fall."
"You know how they say you should marry your best friend? Well, I was sending her a text and accidentally wrote “our” instead of “your.” Suddenly an image of us popped into my head of how our life could be—holding hands, strolling around the patio, and squabbling about how to spend our holiday plans. That’s how I knew. There was no fuss of cold feet, no drama, no mess that romantic love typically makes of things. It was simple. She was my best friend and I was hers. We killed each other’s loneliness."
"Once, Picasso was asked what his paintings meant. He said, ‘Do you ever know what the birds are singing? You don’t. But you listen to them anyway.’ So, sometimes with art, it is important just to look."
"[Spider-man] represents the everyman, but he represents the underdog and those marginalized who come up against great prejudice which I, as a middle-class straight, white man, don’t really understand so much. And when Stan Lee first wrote and created this character, the outcast was the computer nerd, was the science nerd, was the guy that couldn’t get the girl. Those guys now run the world. So how much of an outcast is that version of Peter Parker anymore? That’s my question."
Part of Andrew Garfield’s response to people being all butthurt when he mentioned a possibility where Spiderman might not be straight.
