Quotes by Douglas Coupland

"Remember: the time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be by yourself. Life's cruelest irony."

"And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can't ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it's already happened."

"I don't deserve a soul, yet I still have one. I know because it hurts."

"I don't think anyone ever gets over anything in life; they merely get used to it."

"TV and the Internet are good because they keep stupid people from spending too much time out in public."
