"Do you know what people really want? Everyone, I mean. Everybody in the world is thinking: I wish there was just one other person I could really talk to, who could really understand me, who’d be kind to me. That’s what people really want, if they’re telling the truth."
— Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook
"I always find myself caught between saying too much and not saying enough"
"You know you are on the right track when you become uninterested in looking back."
