My favorite poem

  1. This is a goddamn bitch of an unsatisfactory situation.

     — Brokeback Mountain (2005)
  2. I love you without knowing how.

     — What Dreams May Come (1998)
  3. My fiftieth year had come and gone,
    I sat, a solitary man,
    In a crowded London shop,
    An open book and empty cup
    On the marble table-top.
    While on the shop and street I gazed
    My body of a sudden blazed;
    And twenty minutes more or less
    It seemed, so great my happiness,
    That I was blessed and could bless.

     — W. B. Yeats, “Vacillation”
  4. Angry, and half in love with you, and tremendously sorry, I turned away.

     — F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
  5. Go inward and choke.

     — Frieda Steinberg, “Losing is a full time job”
