It only gets to me in times like these, and times like these are getting to me.
Seven Mary Three 'Times Like These'
Who ever loved that loved not at first sight?
William Shakespeare
Kissing is a habit,
fucking is a game,
boys get all the pleasure,
girls get all the pain.
When he says he loves you,
and you believe its true,
but when you stomach starts to swell,
he says the hell with you!!

16 minutes of pleasure,
9 months of pain,
3 days in a hospital,
a baby with no name.

The baby is a bastard,
the mother is a whore
it never would have happened,
if the rubber hadn't tore.

Lindsey Cobb
The end is the beginning and yet you go on
Samuel Beckett,
My skin is kind of sort of brownish Pinkish yellowish white. My eyes are greyish blueish green, But I'm told they look orange in the night. My hair is reddish blondish brown, But it's silver when it's wet. And all the colors I am inside Have not been invented yet.
Shel Silverstein
I ran up the door and opened the stairs, I said my pajamas & put on my prayers, I turned off the bed & tumbled into the light, All because you kissed me good night!
Love to be loved,
Hate to be hated,
Love not to be hated,
Hate not to be loved.
We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
If you were here,
I would buy you a beer.
But since you're not,
I will drink the lot.
Katie Santo
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper
T.S. Eliot's The Hollow Men
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble, it's a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantement, it is as perrenial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
Desiderata, Max Ehrmann 1927
When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Too much sanity may be madness. To seek treasure where there is only trash. Perhaps to be practiced is madness. And madness of all, to see life as it is and not as it ought to be.
Miguel de Cervantes, "Don Quixote"
I've learned that goodbyes will always hurt, pictues never replace having been there, memories good or bad will always bring tears, and words can never replace feelings.
If I could paint in harmony and colors were words I had sung, If I could climb way up in the sky where the stars are carefully hung, There are flowers in her backyard that resemble the spots of the sun, And there are times I look into her eyes and see the woman and God as one.
Goo Goo Dolls, inside-cover poem
In the madness of a silent eternity
We'd find solace in
False visions that protect us
from reality.
Jim Matheos (Fates Warning), The ivory gates of dream
In LA the blood dries at night. The streets never cool down. The sound of helicopters fills the ears and sends knee jerk shots of panic, paranoia and animal savagery through the veins of the shuffled extras too numbed by glamour overload to notice that there's not a single intersection in the entire city where you can stand and not be an animal waiting to see your own intestines slide down your leg from a stray bullet. In this city they kill for the fuck of it, fuck for the hell of it and live for no reason. If I could have a nickel for every siren I've heard go screaming into the distance to some scene, I'd still be here, still be looking out the window of my room, still laughing at the fact that I can't get my window open very far because the security bars get in the way.
Henry Rollins
When you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance.
Leanne Womack, "I Hope You Dance"
If wishes were stars, there would be no night.
J. Aaron Board
Oh, I wish upon a star And let this wish come true. I want for love to come to me, But wish is all I do.
