Everything is a diary.

"She believed in dreams all right, but she also believed in doing something about them. When Prince Charming didn't come along, she went over to the palace and got him."
--Walt Disney

"You don't drown by falling into water, you drown by staying there."
--Nathan Morgan

"And then finally, your throat seals shut as you realize you've made a mistake that you will never be able to fix."
--Jodi Picoult, 'The Tenth Circle'

"I'd forgotten that I don't get involved because the pain just isn't worth it. All that flattery and attention distracted me from any pain that might have been lurking around the corner, but of course the pain got me in the end. It always does."
--Jane Green, 'Bookends'

“You can spend your whole life thinking you want commitment. You grow up with a clear idea of exactly what it is that you want, and yet when you have it, when it's there, attainable, on your doorstep, you change your mind. Perhaps this is what we need: a dream, a hope for the future, something to aspire to, and perhaps we need to keep replacing this dream with something a little bigger, because when we manage to fulfill the dream, we usually find out that it's not what we wanted in the first place, or if it is, it doesn't feel the way we always thought it should. Sometimes, if you're very mixed up, very stupid, or very thoughtless, you screw up the dream just as you get it. You tell yourself you don't deserve it, and you have to start all over again.”
--Jane Green

Your handwriting, the way you talk. Which pattern you choose. It's all giving you away. Everything you do shows your hand. Everything is a self-portrait. Everything is a diary.

"There are two kinds of women; those you write poems about, and those you don't."
--Jeffrey McDaniel, 'The Benjamin Franklin of Monogamy'
