I kept yelling their names, trying to get them to look my way. He said: “That won’t work. You have to howl at them.”

"After my best friend committed suicide, I spent a year answering phones at a suicide prevention hotline. I worked the midnight to 4 AM shift."
“Why did your friend commit suicide?”
“I think like most people who take their own lives, he was just feeling very isolated. He’d just come back from college, was living with his parents, and was in a very bad place. I’ve always felt guilty about my last words to him. I visited him at his parents’ house, and as I was leaving, I told him: ‘This is a bad situation. You’ve got to get out of here.’”

Quote reblogged from How To Talk To Girls At Parties with 122 notes

It started with wanting to be Joe Namath of the 1969 New York jets, who at that time was one of the only football players to wear white shoes. And I wanted to be like him, so I always wore white sneakers. Also, Bill Cosby on I SPY always wore white sneakers. And they were my fashion icons.

“I just want to die gracefully.”
“Is there a lot of fear wrapped up in that desire?”
“Of course there is. Facing the inevitable physical decline, not knowing what’s ahead. Hospital visits, chemotherapy, it’s all very scary. Fear is the oldest and strongest emotion, and it springs from the unknown. What was that T.S. Eliot quote, something about “interstellar spaces…”


———————————

From East Coker,
by T.S. Eliot

"O dark dark dark. They all go into the dark,
The vacant interstellar spaces, the vacant into the vacant,
The captains, merchant bankers, eminent men of letters,
The generous patrons of art, the statesmen and the rulers,
Distinguished civil servants, chairmen of many committees,
Industrial lords and petty contractors, all go into the dark.”
