...when something you've been thinking about shows up in a book? Almost verbatim for your thoughts?
I finished a book today called "God Hates Us All." At the very end of the novel, Daphne, says the following:
"You know why love stories have happy endings? Because they end too early. They always end right at the kiss. You never have to see all the bullshit that comes later. You know, life."
I don't think I've ever heard it said any plainer. And that's why I like reading f'ed up books about people and their lives. Because even though they're fiction, they always hold a disturbing amount of truth.
