There are so many things that art can't do. It can't bring the dead back to life, it can't mend arguments between friends, or cure AIDS, or halt the pace of climate change. All the same, it does have some extraordinary functions, some odd negotiating ability between people, including people who never meet and yet who infiltrate and enrich each other's lives. It does have a capacity to create intimacy; it does have a way of healing wounds, and better yet of making it apparent that not all wounds need healing and not all scars are ugly.
Olivia Laing, The Lonely City (2016)

Saying "Generation ... is killing ... industry" is such a strange yet acceptable way to blame the consumer for not using an overpriced or outdated product/service.

My schooling makes me desirable in his eyes. That's a far cry from our German men, for whom being well read does little enhance a woman's appeal, at least in my experience. In fact, my instinct has always been to play down my intelligence for them, to make a pretence of ignorance - or at least to keep quite until I know them better. A German man always wants to be smarter, always wants to be in a position to teach his little woman.

If you get caught lying to get out of jury duty, you've committed perjury. Perjury is a felony and felons can't serve on juries.

So much of the pain of loneliness is to do with concealment, with feeling compelled to hide vulnerability, to tuck ugliness away, to cover up scars as if they are literally repulsive. But why hide? What's so shameful about wanting, about desire, about having failed to achieve satisfaction, about experiencing unhappiness? Why this need to constantly inhabit peak states, or to be comfortably sealed inside a unit of two, turned inward from the world at large?
