“If I am to be fallen into love, I will. And if as a result I will appear to be stupid, disillusioned, and of poor judgment, I will. And I would be damned if I cared what other people think.

All you need to fix that tragic past is a six-pack. More problems? Add abs. It’s Magic Dick Lit.” ― Leah Raeder, Black Iris
