So I'll see you when you're 40, lost and all alone
being comforted by strangers you'll never have to know.
Not sad because you lost me but sad because you thought

"It's the kind of country we've always imagined ourselves being — even if in the last seven years we fell horribly short: a young country, an optimistic country, a forward-looking country, a country not afraid to take risks or to dream big." (>>)

"You see the world as it is and you see the world as it could be. What you don't see is what everybody else sees: the giant, gaping chasm in-between… You're not happy unless things are just right. Which means […] you'll never be happy." (>>)
