“A guy and a girl can be girls, but at one point or another, they will fall for each other… Maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever”—Dave Matthews Band (via dontspeakgeekspeak)
One of the hardest parts about a relationship is taking the risk. You might have been independent before but once you get in a relationship with someone, no matter what you say, you’ll start to be dependent towards that person. And the hardest part is when the relationship is over and you’re back to square one, trying to figure out how to get to that independent state you were once in before they came along.
“The stuff about the connection between baseball and American life, the ‘Field of Dreams’ thing, gives me a pain. I hated that movie. It’s mostly fake. You look back into the meaning of old-time baseball, and really in the early days it was full of roughnecks and drunks. They beat up the umpires and played near saloons. In ‘Fields of Dreams’ there’s a line at the end that says the game of baseball was good when America was good, and they’re talking about the time of the biggest race riots in the country and Prohibition. What is that? That dreaminess, I really hated that.”—Roger Angell
