“You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present." Looking For Alaska, John Green
this quote reminded me of another of my favourites - "the future is just a concept we use to avoid living for today." (quoted from rachel griffiths character brenda in six feet under).
sadly i can relate to both of these, that's why they sting, and why i need to remember them.
