Making heroic efforts to make things look easy

I changed and changed, and with more time I will change more. I’m not disappointed, just quiet. Not unthinking, just reckless. Not willfully unclear, just trying to say it as it wasn’t.  . . 

You spent a few minutes every day secretly regretting your laziness that didn’t exist.

I should have forgiven you for all that wasn’t your fault.

~Jonathan Safran Foer, “Here We Aren’t, So Quickly”
