A Hilarious, Smart, Beautiful, Touching Show With Lines Like This Was Canceled By HBO Today
“Sometimes I think about someone else’s life. I Imagine all the love they do not have, I see the passion that is missing, the friends they don’t know, and the awful pressures that crush them. In those moments, I realize how much I have and how much I have to give.”
“Everything can be transformed. Every single thing. Goodness exists. It is all around. It’s just sleeping. It can be wakened. I will not be afraid, I will be bolder. I will go straight to the top and breathe light into the darkest hearts.”
“I’m speaking with my true voice now, without bitterness or fear. And I’m here to tell you, you can walk out of hell and into the light, you can wake up to your higher self, and when you do, the world is suddenly full of possibility of wonder and deep connection. You can be patient, and you can be kind, and you can be wise and almost whole. You don’t have to run away from life your whole life. You can really live. You can change and you can be an agent of change”
“I’ve lived in a world full of not-good-enough mothers. Imperfect, bad mothers. But the mother is a child, too. She is a child. I will stop waiting for you to be the perfect mother. I will be patient with you. I will be tender. I will be the mother I wanted you to be. —Amy Jellicoe
This show made me want to be a better writer and a kinder person. I can’t think of a television show that has made me feel more since “Six Feet Under”. RIP.
