This one is ours

There may be more beautiful times, but this one is ours. — Jean-Paul Sartre

Let’s borrow life preservers and jump over. I think we should do something spectacular. I feel that all our lives have been too restrained. 
— F. Scott Fitzgerald, ‘Tender is the Night’

I like people who have a sense of individuality. I love expression and anything awkward and imperfect, because that’s natural and that’s real. — Marc Jacobs

Everybody’s born with some different thing at the core of their existence. And that thing, whatever it is, becomes like a heat source that runs each person from the inside. I have one too, of course. Like everybody else. But sometimes it gets out of hand. It swells or shrinks inside me, and it shakes me up. What I’d really like to do is find a way to communicate that feeling to another person. But I can’t seem to do it. They just don’t get it. Of course, the problem could be that I’m not explaining it very well, but I think it’s because they’re not listening very well. They pretend to be listening, but they’re not, really. So I get worked up sometimes, and I do some crazy things.
