Matthew Quick Quotes : pic 000514661

Matthew Quick Quotes : pic 000706962
I grew up in a blue-collar neighborhood and was raised by a man who did not emote, ever ... I always cry at movies, and when I was a kid, I would try to hide it. It wasn't something a kid in Oaklyn, N.J., did. So I have these weird hang-ups about emotions. -- Matthew Quick

I still love you in my own fucked-up way. -- Matthew Quick
