As somebody once said there's a difference between a failure and a fiasco. A failure is simply the non-presence of success. Any fool can accomplish failure. But a fiasco...A fiasco is a disaster of mythic proportions. A fiasco is a folktale told to others that makes other people feel more alive because it didn't happened to them.


I want you to get into the deep beautiful melancholy of everything that's happened.

I'm hard to remember, but I'm impossible to forget.

In that moment I knew that success, not greatness was the only god the entire world served.

I spend so much time thinking about all the answers to the problem ... that I forget what the problem actually was.

I don't know a lot about everything, but I do know a lot about the part of everything that I know, and that's people.

I'm wearing these clothes. I mean... Have you ever had unlucky clothes? This dress that you like? Good things have not happened to me in this dress. But I saw it tonight and I said: "I'm gonna give you one more chance." And I refuse to be let down by this dress again.

Claire: Do you ever just think I'm fooling everyone?

Men see things in a box, and women see them in a round room.

Drew: You have no idea.

Look for the girl in a red hat

I'm fine !
