...a right to such tiny beautiful things...

"One hot afternoon during the year in which you've gotten yourself ridiculously tangled up with heroin you will be riding the bus and thinking what a worthless piece of crap you are when a little girl will get on the bus holding the strings of two purple balloons. She'll offer you one of the balloons, but you won't take it because you believe you no longer have a right to such tiny beautiful things. You're wrong. You do." -Sugar; Dear Sugar, The Rumpus Advice Column
