This is Water by Davis Foster Wallace
I don’t know… I think I’d like to say only that they should learn to be alone and try to spend as much time as possible by themselves. I think one of the faults of young people today is that they try to come together around events that are noisy, almost aggressive at times. This desire to be together in order to not feel alone is an unfortunate symptom, in my opinion. Every person needs to learn from childhood how to be spend time with oneself. That doesn’t mean he should be lonely, but that he shouldn’t grow bored with himself because people who grow bored in their own company seem to me in danger, from a self-esteem point of view.
If you make others believe that you are the cause of their happiness, you can generally feel completely delighted with yourself.

Advertising is a great way to keep brilliant minds away from art.
Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.
Lack of interest in former loved ones. A loss of feelings for someone who was formerly loved.
From Rose Walker with Love
Have you ever been in love?
Horrible, isn’t it?
It makes you so vulnerable.
It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up.
You build up all these defenses.
You build up this whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…
You give them a piece of you.
They don’t ask for it.
They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore.
Love takes hostages.
It gets inside you.
It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like “maybe we should just be friends” or “how very perceptive” turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.
Not just in the imagination.
Not just in the mind.
It’s a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain.
I hate love.
Your heart and my heart are very, very close friends.
