mother

900 years of time and space, and I’ve never been slapped by someone’s mother.

Ninth Doctor, Doctor Who

Your mother died to save you. If there is one thing Voldemort cannot understand, it is love. He didn’t realize that love as powerful as your mother’s for you leaves its own mark. Not a scar, no visible sign…to have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever. It is in your very skin.

Professor Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

The best way to dull the pain of your best friend’s murder is to have your mother abandon you as soon as possible. It’s like hitting your thumb with a hammer, then when it’s throbbing so badly you don’t think you’ll survive, you cut the damn thing off.

I’ve never had much use for the concept of Hell, but if Hell exists, I’m in it. The same images running through my head over and over. I was there. I saw my mother’s death. A buried memory forgotten all these years. It climbed inside me that day, and it’s been with me every since. My Dark Passenger.

We’re young. We’re supposed to drink too much. We’re supposed to have bad attitudes and shag each other’s brains out. We are designed to party. This is it. Yeah, so a few of us will overdose or go mental. But Charles Darwin said you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. And that’s what it’s all about – breaking eggs! And by eggs, I do mean, getting twatted on a cocktail of Class A’s. If you could just see yourselves! It breaks my heart. You’re wearing cardigans! We had it all. We fucked up bigger and better than any generation that came before us. We were so beautiful! We’re screw-ups. I’m a screw-up and I plan to be a screw-up until my late 20s, maybe even my early 30s. And I will shag my own mother before I let her… or anyone else, take that away from me!

Sympathizing with villains as young children and then paving the way for their corresponding heartwarming redemption is all the rage these days. Star Wars committed an entire trilogy to young Anakin Skywalker — all for the purpose of helping us understand why he turned to the dark side. Even the Smoke Monster on Lost was a little boy, once. A boy who loved his mommy very much. Do you know what Voldemort thought of his mommy? Me neither. Because he killed her. Technically in childbirth, but who’s to say he wasn’t planning it for the nine months it took him to gestate?

One day, my mother said to me, “If you become a soldier, you will be a general; if you become a monk you’ll end up as the pope.” Instead, I became a painter and now I am Picasso.

I am genuinely inspired by my mum. I love and respect my mum and I think she’s great. She always makes me laugh and I trust her totally. Both my parents are artists and I grew up in quite a liberal home; I was allowed to do what I wanted, but all based on a strong moral foundation. I think it’s really important that parents allow you to do what you like when you’re young because you’re more likely to get it all out of your system. I do love my mum.

Don’t tell my mother.

What, you try arguing with a 45-year old Pakistani woman then.
