I wish I could quit you

The first weekly quote of the new season is from a book that I read when I was a teenager and that still gets under my skin, after so many years. I have a bit of a thing for tragic romances, unrequited loves, relationships endangered by secrets and heartbreaking breakups.

Brokeback Mountain is all of this and so much more.

“You got no fuckin idea how bad it gets. I’m not you. I can’t make it on a couple high-altitude fucks once or twice a year. You’re too much for me, Ennis, you son of a whoreson bitch. I wish I knew how to quit you.”

Annie Proulx, Brokeback Mountain
