"How does one know if she has forgiven? You tend to feel sorrow over the circumstance instead of rage, you tend to feel sorry for the person rather than angry with him. You tend to have nothing left to say about it all."

“I miss the rain. I miss leaving the window open in my bedroom, I miss the thin tendrils of smoke curling around my books and the sad music dripping from the speakers. I miss the warmth of a thunderstorm, the terrifying excitement of a black sky. I want the summer back.”
"This is for all the people I’ll never meet. This is for the person I might have kissed had I taken a different subway line on Saturday and the person I might have been if that boy hadn’t broken my mother’s teenage heart. This is for the people I would have loved if last winter hadn’t been so cold and for the city I would have called home if I had written haikus on napkins and carried pens in dress pockets and in the knots of my hair. This is for who I was, who I am, who I might be."
