· Coffee makes the nights easier.

· It’s never worth the effort to break apart if you’re only going to use a dustpan and brush to pick yourself back up.

· Read. Read lots. Read aloud.

· You are at your most influential when nobody else is around, use it to change your ways.

· Give a part of yourself to everybody who asks. You won’t need your soul anyway.

· Forget the most horrific things.

· Blur the memories.
