Joss Whedon Wisdom
I was looking for this quote today and it wasn’t terribly easy to find so I thought I might make it easier:
Everything is so fragile. There’s so much conflict, so much pain. You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize this is it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along — that weird, unbearable delight that’s actually happy — I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, ’cause it’s there, and then… gone.
Kitty Pryde, Astonishing X-Men
That’s kind of emo but accurate.
