Turning Inward: Favorite Quote

QUESTION: Choose a favorite quote and copy it here. Then write about what it means to you.

This one I find very challenging, to pick just one quote out of so many that fit me... After much thought, I would have to go with this one:

"What, is that a rhetorical question? Why is my life so complicated? Gee, I don't know. Why is your life so fucking simple?" -Playing By Heart

As for it means, I think it's kid of obvious, but maybe that's just me. My life is very complicated, always has been. And I get tired of everyone else always having the perfect life, perfect job, perfect kids, perfect everything. And these people always have the answers to all of life's difficulties, and make everything in their life seem so simple. And I know that it's not as perfect and easy as they make it seem, but seriously, some day I just want to vomit listening to their stories and how wonderful everything in their life is... That's not me, maybe I overcomplicate things, make them more difficult than they need to be. I don't know. But even if I do, is that always such a bad thing?

FYI: Runner-Ups for faves include:

"I don't want to be rude, or unkind, or mean. But I don't just come out with my entire life story over martinis and a coke." -Playing By Heart

"It's like trying to find a need... no, not a needle. Something SMALLER than a needle, in a haystack, when you don't even know if you're in the right field!" -MirrorMask

"I wasn't naked, I was completely covered by a blue spotlight." -Gypsy Rose Lee

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." -Marilyn Monroe
