Quotes

Beatrice Brierleyhas quoted2 years ago
everything that has ever happened to you is still happening.
Beatrice Brierleyhas quoted2 years ago
Over the years you have become very skilful at sensing what is expected of you, irrespective of your own needs or wishes. You have never been accepted, nor have you ever tried to be; you have never loved, hated or been angry. Instead you have known only the anxieties of performance: that you do not make even one mistake by forgetting a line or missing a cue.
Beatrice Brierleyhas quoted2 years ago
alcohol is not the problem – it’s the solution: dissolving all the separate parts into one. A universal solvent. An ocean.
