a long way down from here

Nick Hornby’s A Long Way Down has many amazing quotes. I read the novel after watching the film, of which Hornby adapted himself. Both are touching, despite their differences. Below are a few of the book quotes that spoke to me and wanted to share.

Sensitive people find it harder to stick around.

…because sometimes it’s moments like that, real complicated moments, absorbing moments, that make you realize that even hard times have things in them that make you feel alive.

Human beings are millions of things in one day.

It’s a currency like any other, self-worth. You spend years saving up, and you can blow it all in an evening if you so choose.

Hard is trying to rebuild yourself, piece by piece, with no instruction book, and no clue as to where all the important bits are supposed to go.
