“You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.”

-Jonathan Safron Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Tel Aviv, Israel

“You know what’s wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You’re chicken, you’ve got no guts. You’re afraid to stick out your chin and say, “Okay, life’s a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that’s the only chance anybody’s got for real happiness.” You call yourself a free spirit, a “wild thing,” and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it’s not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.”

-Breakfast at Tiffany’s

I kinda like this game but there’s something you should know.
