suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. i have been bent and broken, but -i hope- into better shape.

charles dickens, great expectations

    "I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

    Audrey Hepburn

    "Judge yourself if you feel the need
    Just let me known to be
    In search of the truth myself
    There is a drop of blood on the ground
    And it seems to me that it's not my kind
    And I can't be sure if its yours or mine."

  • A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself- and especially to feel or not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at any moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to- letting a person be what he really is.

  • How like a winter hath my absence been
    From thee, the pleasure of the fleeting year!
    What freezings have I felt, what dark days seen!
    What old December's bareness everywhere!

    The forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
    Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
    A local habitation and a name."

  • It was like picking a scab off a sore; he actually wanted scar tissue- it would be quite wrong to try and forget, to blank it all out. Every fraught memory that lurked here had played its role: everything he was today was an indirect result of the life he had led then. It confirmed the rightness of every step he had taken.

    William Boyd, ARMADILLO

  • You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him. ~Leo Aikman
    "In the age of darkness
    want to be enlightened"
  • Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming " Wow! What a Ride!"

    Hunter S. Thompson

  • Somewhere, within her, in a deep recess, crouched discontent. She began to lose confidence in the fullness of her life, the glow began to fade from her conception of it. As days multiplied, her need of something, something vaguely familiar, but which she could not put a name to and hold for definite examination, became almost intolerable. She went through moments of overwhelming anguish. She felt shut in, trapped.
