"Online life is all about maximizing the quantity of connections without much concern for their quality. On the internet, a meaningful relationship is one that might offer diversion or utility, not one in which you divulge secrets and offer support."
Ian Bogost, People Aren’t Meant to Talk This Much
When I look at my life and its secret colors, I feel like bursting into tears. Like that sky. It's rain and sun both, noon and midnight.
I think of the lips I've kissed, and of the wretched child I was, and of the madness of life and the ambition that sometimes carries me away. I'm all those things at once.
I'm sure there are times when you wouldn't even recognize me. Extreme in misery, excessive in happiness—I can't say it.
— Albert Camus
Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.
