I came across this Nina Simone quote when I was looking for ... Nina Simone quotes (as you do). I wanted to keep it:
Life is short. People are not easy to know. They're not easy to know, so if you don't tell them how you feel, you're not going to get anywhere, I feel.
But did anyone read that opinion piece in the NYT today? Good Lovers Lie? I always thought to share my true feelings but maybe not? It hasn't ever turned out well for me. I don't think it turned out well for Nina either.
