The emptiness starts to drown
The quiet corners off this town
'The Rest Of My Life' by Less Than Jake
While man is growing, life is in decrease; And cradles rock us nearer to the tomb. Our birth is nothing but our death begun.
Edward Young "Night Thoughts" Night V, l. 717
Belief is a beautiful armor But makes for the heaviest sword Like punching under water You never can hit who you're trying for
"Belief" John Mayer
If heaven and hell decide That they both are satisfied Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs If there's no one beside you When your soul embarks Then I'll follow you into the dark
Death Cab for Cutie - I Will Follow You Into The Dark
For the sword outwears its sheath And the soul wears out the breast And the heart must pause to breathe And love itself have rest
Lord Byron
In the name of the best within you, do not sacrifice this world to those who are its worst. In the name of the values that keep you alive, do not let your vision of man be distorted by the ugly, the cowardly, the mindless in those who have never achieved his title. Do not lose your knowledge that man's proper estate is an upright posture, an intransigent mind and a step that travels unlimited roads. Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it's yours.
Ayn Rand
If I could be a lovely chap
Life would fall into my lap
And all my words would sound so nice
You'd want to hear me say them twice.
But what I want to say to you
Is only what I think is true
And so, alas, I'll always be
A rather unattractive me.
Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell 'em I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found serenity
But you can't take the sky from me
Ballad of Serenity, 'Firefly' theme song
When the rich wage war, it's the poor who die.
Linkin Park - Hands Held High
Life is short, so love the one you got 'cause you might get run over or you might get shot
Sublime "What I got"
Everyday should be a good day to die
Dave Matthews
Spent my days with a woman unkind,
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine.
Made up my mind to make a new start,
Going to california with an aching in my heart.
Someone told me theres a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.
Took my chances on a big jet plane,
Never let them tell you that theyre all the same.
The sea was red and the sky was grey,
Wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
'Goin to California' by Led Zeppelin
I kiss you on the brain in the shadow of a train
I kiss you all starry eyed, my body's swinging from side to side
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else but you
"Anyone else but you" by The Moldy Peaches
And were an epitaph to be my story I'd have a short one ready for my own. I would have written of me on my stone: I had a lover's quarrel with the world.
Robert Frost
It was the best of times. If only someone had told me.
Here we are again, with handguns for hearts.
Alkaline Trio - Prevent This Tragedy
Love is like a butterfly, it goes where it pleases, and pleases where it goes.
All the world's artists are displaced warriors from another time fighting to find their struggle so it can lead them to an uneasy death.
Eddie Kilowatt
Clare, I want to tell you, again, I love you. Our love has been the thread through the labyrinth, the net under the high-wire walker, the only real thing in this strange life of mine that I could ever trust. Tonight I feel that my love for you has more density in this world than I do, myself: as though it could linger on after me and surround you, keep you, hold you.
'The Time Traveler's Wife' by Audrey Niffenegger
