"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, it is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." ~Jack Handy
"If you can't dazzle 'em with brilliance, baffle 'em with bullshit."
"Look, I'm not the one with the problem, ok? It's the world that seems to have a problem with me. They take one look at me and go, "Ahh look a big, stupid, ugly ogre." They judge me before they even know me and that's why I'm better off alone"

"Somebody tell my head to tell my heart that I'm better off without you."
"I'm so afraid to care about someone.
I know it seems like I'm this strong girl
who can get through everything,
but inside I'm very fragile.
I've had so many things thrown at me,
and each one has only made a crack.
What I'm afraid of is shattering."
Passion is the element in which we live; without it we hardly vegetate Byron
In every heart there is a room
A sanctuary safe and strong
To heal the wounds from lovers past
Until a new one comes along
- Billy Joel
See the stone set in your eyes See the thorn twist in your side I wait for you Sleight of hand and twist of fate On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait . . . without you

You dream of colours that have never been made. You imagine songs that have never been played. They will try to buy you and your mind. For only the curious have something to find.
Have you ever really liked someone? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so defenseless.. it opens your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.. you build up these defenses.. so that nothing can hurt you.. and then one person.. comes into your life.. and you give them a piece of you.. they didnt ask for it.. they just do something one day.. like kiss you.. or smile at you.. and your life isn't your own anymore.. some sort of love gets inside you.. it really hurts.. and a simple phrase like "maybe we should just be friends" is like a glass splinter in your heart.. it rips you apart.. it's real.. and I hate that feeling
* There's one thing a quote does that nothing else can do...it can become part of you. You may never meet the person who said it, but that person is now a companion. Quotes help you get over the pain, feel love, make you smile and laugh, and help you through those days when you think that no one knows what you're going through
"There comes a time in your life when everything falls apart and you need someone to put it back together again, because you can't do it yourself. To be put back together is to find peace of mind with your heart again. Once that is done, you are functioning as a whole again. Don't ever let go of the person that put you together, they are more important than you know."

"I don't need you in my life, but I do want you there. That's why these feelings are so amazing. You're a part of me because that's what I want, not what I need. You're not the oxygen essential to my survival, but rather the Starbucks Rich Italian Roast Ice Cream that makes my survival so much more fun."
