Words that Tugged at My Heartstrings


“It’s just that sometimes people use thought to not participate in life.” ~ Bill

“… We accept the love we think we deserve.” ~ Bill

“Not everyone has a sob story, Charlie, and even if they do, it’s no excuse.” ~ Charlie’s Dad

“I just think it’s bad when a boy looks at a girl & thinks that the way he sees the girl is better than the girl actually is.”  ~ Charlie

“I don’t know if it’s better to be close w/ your daughter or make sure that she has a better life than you do.” ~ Charlie

“I feel great! I really mean it. I have to remember this for the next time I’m having a terrible week.”  ~ Charlie

“She really did look sad, and I wished I could have made her feel better, but sometimes, I guess you just can’t.” ~ Charlie (on Sam)

“But because things change. And friends leave. And life doesn’t stop for anybody.”  ~ Charlie

“every person has to live for his or her own life and then make the choice to share it with other people. Maybe that is what makes people ‘participate.’” ~ Charlie

“Because I guess we all forget sometimes. And I think everyone is special in their own way.” ~ Charlie

“She wasn’t bitter. She was sad, though. But it was a hopeful kind of sad. The kind of sad that just takes time.” ~ Charlie (on Sam)

“You can’t just sit there & put everybody’s lives ahead of yours & think that counts as love. You just can’t. You have to do things.” ~ Sam (talking to Charlie)

“I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.” ~ Charlie

“And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn’t really change the fact that you have what you have.” ~ Charlie

“Maybe it’s good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there… Because it’s okay to feel things. And be who you are about them.” ~ Charlie

“Please believe that things are good with me, and even when they’re not, they will be soon enough.” ~ Charlie
