“Our conversations are never easy, but as I-we-get older, we are finding that our conversations must be spoken. A need burns inside us to share with others what we are feeling Beyond a certain age, sincerity ceases to feel pornographic. It is as though the coolness that marked out youth is itself a type of retrovirus that can only leave you feeling empty. Full of holes.”

Douglas Coupland- Life after God

“And in his heart, I think, he’s now learned what I came to believe, which is, as I’ve said all along, that the sun may burn brightly, and the faces of children may be plump and achingly sweet, but in the air we breathe, in the water we drink and in the food we share, there will always be darkness in this world.”

Douglas Coupland- Hey Nostradamus

(sorry Becci, maybe the uplifting/encouraging ones will return soon ;-))
