Douglas Coupland Quotes

And then I felt sad because I realized that once 
people are broken in certain ways, they can not 
ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever 
tells you when you are young and it never fails 
to surprise you as you grow older as you see the 
people in your life break once by one. You wonder 
when your turn is going to be, or it itàs already happened.

lives, Andy, a stranger who unwittingly 
possesses a bizarre hold over you. Maybe
itàs the kid in cut-offs who mows your
lawn or the woman wearing white shoulders
who stamps your book at the library - a stranger
who, if you were to come home and find a message
from them on your answering machine saying.
"Drop everthing. I love. Come away with me
now to Florida," You'd follow them.

We are changed souls; we do not look at things
the same way anymore. For there was a time
when we expected the worst. But then the worst
happened, did it not ? And so we will never be
surprised again.

of my brain and did not want to blow my one
chance on Earth. I am glad I made that decision.

space part of my brain wanting equal footing with
the time part.
