Those who are happy are not without pain, they just know how not to be controlled by it.
Love and Other Drugs, 2010
You know it only breaks my heart to see you standing in the dark. Waiting there for me to come back.
Stop waiting on people to complete you, complete yourself.
Maybe I love too much and maybe I show it too little.
Come on lay down these arms, all our best defenses. We’re taking our chances here on the run.
Matt Kearney, Never Be Ready
I only write when I am falling in love, or falling apart.
A healthy relationship is one where two independent people just make a deal that they will help make the other person the best version of themselves.
I’ve got my two hands on my pocket. The left is holding onto uncertainty. The other is clinging on to hope.
Note to myself
Writing about doctors has helped me to realize that they aren’t necessarily special people; they are, more precisely, ordinary people engaged in an extraordinary profession. Clearly they are not perfect—not as doctors or as people….The responsibilities of doctors often surprise, test, and challenge them—but the best doctors meet and, when necessary, exceed the challenges. And the truth is, we ask more of our doctors, especially these days, than we do of people in almost any other profession.
My faith is like shifting sand- changed by every wave.

I will always be King of Pain.
Alanis Morissette, King of Pain
Take a shower,
Wash away the bad thoughts,
Cleanse your body,
Put on some relaxing music,
Get in to bed,
