There's an old saying that if you come back to the place where you became a man, you will remember all those things you need to be happy... That saying never made sense to me, but I thought it was worth a try.

If you're going through hell, keep going.
--Sir Winston Churchill
"i think its kind of funny, and i think its kind of sad, that the dreams in which i'm dying are the best i've ever had."

There are certain people who are not meant to fit in your life, no matter how much you want them to be.

When I was little I, like, worshipped Halloween. And truthfully, part of me still does. 'Cause it's your one chance all year to be someone else.
Love is when you look into someone's eyes, and suddenly, you go all the way inside, to their soul... and you both know, instantly. I always imagined I would fall in love, nursing a blind soldier. Who was wounded in battle. Or maybe while rescuing someone in the middle of a blizzard, seconds before the avalanche hits. I thought, at least, by the age of fifteen, I would have a love life. But, I don't even have a "like" life.
The worst feeling is suddenly realizing that you don't measure up. And that, in the past, when you thought you did, you were a fool.
Sometimes it seems like we're all living in some kind of prison. And the crime is how much we hate ourselves. It's good to get really dressed up once in a while. And admit the truth: that when you really look closely? People are so strange and so complicated that they're actually... beautiful. Possibly even me. -My So Called Life
It just seems like...you agree to have a certain personality or something. For no reason. Just to make things easier for everyone. But when you think about it... I mean, how do you know it's even you? And this whole thing with the yearbook - it's like, everybody's in this big hurry to make this book... to supposedly remember what happened, but it's not even what really happened. It's what everybody thinks was *supposed* to happen. Because if you made a book of what *really* happened, it'd be a really upsetting book. - My So Called Life
My life's work has been to prompt others and be forgotten. Remember that night when Christian came to your balcony? That moment sums up my life. While I was below in the shadows, others climbed up to kiss the sweet rose. -Cyrano de Bergerac

"Everyone is strange and beautiful in their own way"-My So Called Life
"People always say how you should be yourself. Like your self is this definite thing, like a toaster or something. Like you know what it is even. But every so often, I'll have, like a moment when being myself, and my life, like, right where I am, is like, enough"-My So Called Life
"Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies"-The Shawshank Redemption
"Real love hurts; Real love makes you totally vulnerable and open; Real love will take you far beyond yourself; Therefore real love will devastate you. If love does not shatter you, You do not know love"

Live for today and not tomorrow
It's still the road that never ends"

A big part of growing up is learning to do the right thing, even if it means breaking someone's heart... Including your own.
How is it that our memory is good enough to retain the least triviality that happens to us, and yet not good enough to recollect how often we have told it to the same person?

- Fran├žois Duc de La Rochefoucauld
You can’t just sit down and talk about the truth. It doesn’t work that way. You have to live it and be part of it and you might get to know it.
--Rolling Thunder, CHEROKEE
There is one purpose to life and one only: to bear witness to and understand as much as possible of the complexity of the world - its beauty, its mysteries, its riddles. The more you understand, the more you look, the greater is your enjoyment of life and your sense of peace. That's all there is to it. If an activity is not grounded in 'to love' or 'to learn,' it has no value.

-Anne Rice
Auden, W. H.: "Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh."

"A lot of horrible, unfair, untrue things have been said about me. I can only say that the best revenge is success"-- Kate Moss
Beauty is about perception, not about make-up. I think the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking oneself. You can't put on make-up, or dress yourself, or do you hair with any sort of fun or joy if you're doing it from a position of correction.
--Kevyn Aucoin
I am not interested in money. I just want to be wonderful. --MM
I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night- there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I'm not going to worry about them. I'm dreaming the hardest. --Marilyn Monroe
"It's the people who are not seen who change art and culture and fashion and music. It's the people who are constantly pushed away who change the world." - Morrissey, I think..
"You never have sex the way people do in the movies. You don't do it on the floor, you don't do it standing up, you don't always have all your clothes off, you don't happen to have on all the sexy lingerie. You know, if anybody ever ripped my clothes, I'd kill them."
I've made my mistakes. I've had my ups and downs, my ins and outs, and definately my share of bad breaks. BUT when it's all said and done..I'll raise a glass over my head and swear to god its all been fun.
"Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect." -- Margaret Mitchell
I was about half in love with her by the time we sat down. That's the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty, even if they're not much to look at, or even if they're sort of stupid, you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are. - JD Salinger

"If you're going to lie, lie for a friend. If you're going to cheat, cheat death. If you're going to steal, steal a heart."
"There are millions of people out there. But in the end, it all comes down to one. I still panic sometimes, forget to breathe...But I know.. I know there’s something beautiful.. in all my imperfections. A beauty which he held up for me to see. A strength that can never be taken away."
--Kirsten Dunst : Crazy / Beautiful
"Get into the habit of laughing; too many of us have forgotten
how to laugh. As people grow older, they sometimes forget
that they ever laughed. It is a part of their childhood
that they can no longer remember."

"It's only after you've lost everything
that you're free to do anything." ~Fight Club~
"Love gives you wings. It makes you fly. I don't even call it love. I call it Geronimo. When you're in love, you'll jump right from the top of the Empire State and you won't care, screaming "Geronimo" the whole way down. I love her so bad, I just... whoa, she wrecks me. I'd die for her." ~Conspiracy Theory~
"Sex is like math..Add two people, subtract the clothes, divide the legs, and hope to God you don't multiply!"

Procrastination is like a credit card: It's a lot of fun until you get the bill.
Prevent inbreeding: Ban country music.
Do it today. Tomorrow it might be illegal.
Been there, done that. Got a t-shirt.
I'll rise but I won't shine.
I was normal once, I didn't like it.
If people were meant to pop out of bed, we'd all sleep in toasters.
I can only please one person a day and today ain't your day. (Tomorrow ain't looking good either).

During tests I look up for inspiration, down in desperation, and side to side for information.

I find it wholesome to be alone the greater part of the time. To be in company, even with the best, is soon wearisome and dissipating. I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.

Promise me, Pooh, that you won't forget me ever,
because if I thought you would, I wouldn't leave.

I'm not in denial, I'm just selective about the reality I choose to accept.

People don't fall in love with what's right in front of them. People want the dream; what they can't have. The more unattainable, the more attractive.

Someone has to talk to her people. That name is striking fear in nobody's hearts.

Sometimes it hurts more then we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe we'd know some kind of peace... but we would be hollow... Empty rooms shuttered and dank.
-- David Boreanaz "Angel"
They say we all lose 21 grams at the exact moment of our death... everyone. The weight of a stack of nickels. The weight of a chocolate bar. The weight of a hummingbird...
Growing up sucks..And not all kisses are magic and most boys do not live up to your expectations. But there are those times when everything, I mean love, romance, relationships.. It all falls together perfectly, and it's incredible..It's those moments, no matter how depressingly or few and far between they are that make growing up worth it, and it'll be okay.-Dawsons creek

"Can't get enough nuts? Grab a Snickers." ~ S commercial
As you may know, I spent the last three months in Africa. A
wondrous, magical place. But as shadows lengthen across the KHBR
window, thoughts turn to homecoming. Journey's end. Because in a
sense, it's the coming back, the return which gives meaning to the going
forth. We really don't know where we've been until we've come back to
where we were. Only, where we were may not be as it was because of
who we've become. Which is, after all, why we left.

-- Bernard (3.21)

If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe.
"I think God appreciates it even more. 'Cause he created you in His image -- at least that's what I was always taught -- and since God is love and God doesn't make mistakes then you must be exactly the way He wants you to be, the way He intended you to be. And that goes for every person, every planet, every mountain, every grain of sand, every song, every tear, and every faggot. We're all His Emmett, and He loves us all."

Ted to Emmett on 'Queer as Folk' season one.

I've learned that you can't make someone love you. All you can do is stalk her and hope that she panics and gives in.
If you are alone you belong entirely to yourself....If you are accompanied by even one companion you belong only half to yourself, or even less, in proportion to the thoughtlessness of his conduct; and if you have more than one companion you will fall more deeply into the same plight

"Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are
not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the
weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less
prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs
that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave. Our lives are
measured by these." -Susan B. Anthony
