“She was interested in everything, wanted to experience all that life had to offer.”

 

“Sometimes I wonder if I’m more motivated by fear than anything else.”

 

“Doesn’t it drive you insane sometimes, not knowing how it’s all going to turn out? Like, literally anything could happen.”

 

“Because other people take you at your own valuation?”
“Exactly. Value yourself highly and fight your own corner, because no one else is going to do it for you.”

 

“The great surprise of the adult world had been that no one really knew what they
were doing, and especially not the people who exuded impenetrable confidence.”

 

“I guess this is what happens when you grow up. People drift off in their own directions. Sometimes I look around at my job and my flat and my car and can’t believe that people have mistaken me for an adult and let me have all of this. But this is it, isn’t it? We’re the grownups now.”

 

“After he’d finally disappeared she remained sitting there alone, letting the air darken around her and her hands grow cold and her mind go numb.”

 

“That was life: you put one foot in front of the other.”
