Augusten Burroughs Quote: “I’m always prepared for the worst.”
Augusten Burroughs Quote: “The secret to being a writer is that you have to write. It’s not enough to think about writing or to study literature or plan a future life as an author. You really have to lock yourself away, alone, and get to work.”

Augusten Burroughs Quote: “You are allowed to be alive. You are allowed to be somebody different. You are allowed to not say goodbye to anybody or explain a single thing to anyone, ever.”
Augusten Burroughs Quote: “All children should be loved, protected, nurtured – emotionally and intellectually – respected, and never, under any circumstances, underestimated.”

Augusten Burroughs Quote: “Love is a helium-based emotion; Love always takes the high road.”

I think it has something to do with tomorrow, that there is always one, and that everything can change when it comes.”
Augusten Burroughs Quote: “I hate feelings. Why does sobriety have to come with feelings?”
Augusten Burroughs Quote: “I missed him so much that I had physical sensations of loss, all over my body. Like one minute I was missing an arm, the next my spleen. It was making me feel sick, like throwing up.”

Augusten Burroughs Quote: “Imperfections are attractive when their owners are happy with them.”
Augusten Burroughs Quote: “Nobody’s trying to kill you, Deirdre. You’re killing yourself.”
Augusten Burroughs Quote: “And I began to let him go. Hour by hour. Days into months. It was a physical sensation, like letting out the string of a kite. Except that the string was coming from my center.”
Augusten Burroughs Quote: “You can make almost anything a learning or positive experience. I think I offer a good example of how to make the most out of what life gives you and how to keep moving on.”
Augusten Burroughs Quote: “Real optimism is not the pep talk you give yourself. It is earned through the labor involved in emotional housekeeping.”

Augusten Burroughs Quote: “My thoughts seem thick, ketchup stuck in a bottle. Like trying to feel someone’s face while wearing goosedown mittens.”
Augusten Burroughs Quote: “What is lint? How does it find hair dryers and navels?”
Augusten Burroughs Quote: “And human instinct is ancient and reliable, utterly mysterious and possibly capable of great genius. I believe that refined, fluent instincts are a person’s most valuable asset. My own instincts have repeatedly guided me against the grain of logic and probability. When I have trusted and followed their direction, they have never been wrong. I don’t know how or why. But I know that every significant experience-positive or negative-sharpens them and makes them more accurate.”
Augusten Burroughs Quote: “I don’t have a fixed routine. I write every day but I don’t “write” every day, if that makes any sense. In other words, I email with my friends constantly and sometimes I’ll pull out something I’ve written and save it.”
Augusten Burroughs Quote: “People generally like happy endings, which is something I learned from my years in advertising. I like happy endings myself, but only if they’re honest. I’m just as happy with a terrible, hopeless ending.”
