Leading a roommate life, and you are proud/happy/sad about it. Here are 10 quotes that perfectly reflect your situation:

When Your Roommate Has Just Shifted In

“The thing is, it’s really hard to be roommates with people if your suitcases are much better than theirs – if yours are really good ones and theirs aren’t. You think if they’re intelligent and all, the other person, and have a good sense of humor, that they don’t give a damn whose suitcases are better, but they do.”

 – J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

On Men Living Together

“When two men live together they usually maintain a kind of shabby neatness out of incipient rage at each other. Two men alone are constantly on the verge of fighting, and they know it.”

 – John Steinbeck, East of Eden

When Your Roommate Becomes Your Family

“I have the best roommates in the world! It creates a fun sense of family… and that’s really important to me. Things can get so lonely without it.”

Having A Lousy Roommate

– Kellan Lutz

When You Fight For Bathroom Rights

“My roommate says, I’m going to take a shower and shave, does anyone need to use the bathroom? It’s like some weird quiz where he reveals the answer first.”
