“It frightens me that I can’t do anything sensible about it.”
“Are you scared that you’ll wind up with a boring job where you have to see the same people every day and drink instant coffee?”
“I’m more scared that I’ll forget the feelings that I have now.”
“Kind of like how you forgot how it feels to be three years old.”
“That surely I’ll wind up thinking: I was so young, I didn’t really understand everything. It bothers me that I know I will be wrong.”

– Gunnar Ardelius, “I Need You More Than I Love You and I Love You to Bits”
