Grey Gardens (1975)

"You know that place between sleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you. That’s where I’ll be waiting."

Peter Pan

Now and Then (1995)

I say we make a pact. Here and now. We’re here for each other, always, no matter what happens in life. If Teeny goes off to Hollywood or I marry a rich doctor, we remember this day and this pact. Whenever we need a friend, we’re here for each other. We can count on it. Always. No matter what.

"I could never see myself loving him
Until I did"

"I am alone now, and it’s not that I’m upset about it, I just can’t stop thinking of all the wonderful things I could be doing and experiencing with someone else. I think that life is so great, it’s too much for just one person. I want someone to share things with."

You can tell that people care about you when they take the time to be sad for you. They also let you know how much you mean to them in your worst moments. That’s all I needed tonight: for someone to simply let me know that they were there for me if I needed anything. Just stop and take a moment to feel what your friend is feeling and it will mean the world to them. Let them know that they are not alone. I did not want to ruin someones night tonight by my mourning but sitting alone in my room was not going to help anything. We don’t need to sit and talk for hours about my issues. It only takes a moment of sympathy to make someone feel immensely better.

"Having experienced both, I am not sure which is worse: intense feeling, or the absence of it."

"Therefore, dear Sir, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away… and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast…. be happy about your growth, in which of course you can’t take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don’t torment them with your doubts and don’t frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn’t be able to comprehend. Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn’t necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust…. and don’t expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it."

Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
