You will hear thunder and remember me and think, she wanted storms

She looks sad. She looks angry. She looks different from everyone else I know—she cannot put on that happy face others wear when they know they are being watched. She doesn’t put on a face for me, which makes me trust her somehow. Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook

Each of us, when our day's work is done, must seek our ideal, whether it be love or pinochle or lobster à la Newburg, or the sweet silence of the musty bookshelves

Love everyone, and forgive everyone, including yourself. Forgive your anger. Forgive your guilt. Your shame. Your sadness. Embrace and open up your love, your joy, your truth, and most especially your heart. Jim Henson

Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic

The truth about autobiographical songs, he realised, was that you had to make the present become the past, somehow: you had to take a feeling or a friend or a woman and turn whatever it was into something that was over, so that you could be definitive about it. You had to put it in a glass case and look at it and think about it until it gave up its meaning.
Nick Hornby, Juliet, Naked

You can fool me, but you cannot fool Ernest Hemingway!


If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more.

Sweetheart I’ve been frightfully busy but you know I have thought of you every minute

I thought that I was in my prime, but I was naked dressed in my pride. You saw through the things I hide, yet still you say 'be yourself, you'll turn out alright'.  You make me run like i've never run, try like I have never tried, fight like I have never fought, made me want it, I'm always saying 'I'll make it right my dear, cause losing you is my greatest fear, I know I found all the blame this side yet still you say 'don't be stupid you'll turn out alright'.  Who said its easy to feel loved, when you look over your shoulder and only see the wasteland? Just got to carry what you can, have the heart of a giant but know you're a man! Start small grow tall. Little Giant

I wash my mind, try and work things out, I think it's clear but three days later it's wrong and oh don't you wanna know, is it any easier?

There are just some kind of men who’re so busy worrying about the next world they’ve never learned to live in this one

Don’t kiss anyone’s ass. Don’t do it. For the rest of your life, everyone will always tell you, ‘Pick your battles. Kiss a little bit of ass. Then you get to stop kissing ass later.’ It’s a lie. They all just want their ass kissed. They think that if they tell you that they’re gonna get to kiss less ass too. It’s all garbage. It’s all bullshit. You have to just do everything yourself.
