"Never love a wild thing… You can’t give your heart to a wild thing: the more you do, the stronger they get. Until they’re strong enough to run into the woods. Or fly into a tree. Then a taller tree. Then the sky. That’s how you’ll end up… If you let yourself love a wild thing. You’ll end up looking at the sky."

— Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s
"…I hate how I don’t feel real enough unless people are watching." — Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

"The Greek word for “return" is nostos. Algos means “suffering." So nostalgia is the suffering caused by an unappeased yearning to return."

Brian Bedford said the same think in "Wings" :-

Why do people cage the things they love the most? Is it simply that they fear to be alone? If you give you're love her freedom, she will stay awhile If she leaves you, she was never yours to own

You're right Bryn ... the quotes are very similar.

Personally I'm a great believer in the old adage; "There is nothing new under the sun" ... or words to that effect.
