Well, I'm telling you here that this approach not only makes you party to other people's crimes against themselves but is a prescription for mediocrity and delusion” ― Kelly Cutrone, “That was when I first observed a phenomenon I now call the "New York Slide": you offer your words to try to communicate and connect with someone, but your words just hit a brick wall the person has erected to ward off human contact- the words slide down it and roll away.” ― Kelly Cutrone, “Yet you look at your child and you just know from the beginning that she's going to break your heart. You know she's going to steal your credit card and your cell phone and lie to you and call you a bitch because she has a crush on some guy you don't like.But you love her and want for her anyway, and it's the most beautiful, selfless love; you instinctively know you'd do anything for her, regardless of what she does to you.” ― Kelly Cutrone, “The planet is here for our delight, but it is also here for us to change, to make it the best it can be.You can't have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail.
Because, if you're the kind of person who senses there's something out there for you beyond whatever it is you're expected to do - if you want to be EXTRA-ordinary- you will not get there by hanging around a bunch of people who tell you you're not extraordinary.
And that starts with finding ourselves: learning to quiet the clamor in our minds and the voices of everyone around us and move toward what feels right – toward the things we know, for reasons we can’t explain, that we’re mean to do, the things that makes us feel alive.” ― Kelly Cutrone, “Dreams won't always take you on a straight path to destiny but they're usually related to what your soul wants for you.

Instead, you will probablybecome as ordinary as they expect you to be.” ― Kelly Cutrone, “After all, you can't truly be happy if you've never known pain.
You can't truly feel joy if you've never felt heartbreak.
