"I feel like I didn’t know who I was when I was 15. I don’t feel like you’re who you are for life, not even when you’re 20."
At 16 you left home, at 17 you stood in front of a film camera, at 19 you bought an apartment, at 20 you tied the knot for the first time, at 24 for the second time and at 26 you adopted your first child. What’s the rush?
You’re right, I was in a damn hurry. My driving force was that I only believed in today and was full of panic to live my life only just half. My grandmother and my mother died early. That’s why I’ve never believed that there could be fairy tales, happy endings and a perfect family in my life. I have to work on being able to take a deep breath and to enjoy my life. Because I know how abruptly life can be over I’m always thinking at the end of the day, that I haven’t done enough. I simply can’t let go of this feeling of urgency. - Angelina Jolie.
You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that’s what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant… oh, fuck it.
