  • “those who escape hell however never talk about it and nothing much bothers them after that.” by Charles Bukowski “Don't trust anyone. Be a cold fish. I hurt no one. And no one can hurt me.” by Adeline Yen Mah "I fail to understand 
why being empty 
is the heaviest burden to bear." "What I possess, seems far away to me, and what is gone becomes reality." "If you hear the past speaking to you, feel it tugging at your back and running its fingers up your spine, the best thing to do—the only thing—is run." Lauren Oliver, Delirium
  • My favorites quotes are: First from Macbeth by Shakespeare, the ones which Lady Macbeth said “What's done, is done” and “What's done cannot be undone”. Sometimes I make mistakes or do something embarrassing and I don't forget it at all and it keeps repeating in my head and sometimes I can't sleep; especially if I made mistakes in the exam, so I say this quotation, to calm myself. I should learn my lesson from every situation, so I won't repeat the same mistakes again and “keep moving forward” that's my second favorite quotation from 'Meeting the Robinsons'. Well I can't change the past because its already done but I can learn from it and keep moving forward and change my future. My third and fourth quotation are from Kung Fu Panda 1 and 2: “To make something special you just have to believe it's special.” and “Your story may not have such a happy beginning, but that doesn't make you who you are. It is the rest of your story, who you choose to be.” These are my favorite quotes and what I remember for now, it will be a great idea later on to write my favorite quotes every time I watch or read something.
  • "The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference" It reminds me that I shouldn't waste my time hating someone, you rather just don't care anymore so you can avoid hurting or stressing yourself. I read it from a book full of angst and hate. Ironic much.
  • If I have learned anything from this relatively short life span we have, its two things. Choices and Burning Bridges. Always leave a little room for negotiation. L.J. Ferrari I wrote it..
  • "Winners never quit, quitters never win" and "seras del tamano de tus pensamientos no te permitas fracasar"
  • MYOB (Mind Your Own Business) .. thanks Mum!
  • I have two favorites and they were found while randomly searching the web, both are by Dr. Suess. The first "we are all a little weird and life's a little weird and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love" The second "you know you're in love when you're can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams" I'm not a soppy kind of person, I'm not a fan of cliche love movies or really slow loves songs, but those two quotes just make me feel giddy and giggly like a teenager!
  • My first one is: I'd rather be hated for who I am than to be loved for who I am not. It's very true. I'm a very controversial person, but I wouldn't change that one bit. I'd rather people hate me for being me and for being honest than love me for someone I'm playing a part of. It's hard for me to make friends because I'm being only me, but the few friends I do make are real people. They wouldn't be just as fake as I'd be pretending to be. Not to mention, I hate lying. People ALWAYS find out the truth eventually so there's no point in it. The other one is: We work in the dark to serve the light. It's from Assassin's Creed, but because of who I am and what I do, it's very true. There's a whole 'nother world people do not know about and/or ignore and the only reason why people don't know about it is because people like me are making sure that world stays hidden. Confusing, I know, but it's something I can't really get into detail. Most people would think I"m crazy and there's something mentally wrong with me. So humans, just know your safety and well being is being protected. :)
  • We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he today that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition: And gentlemen in England now abed Shall think themselves accursed they were not here, And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day. I first heard it on CONNECTIONS, sadly; the sentiments expressed in HENRY V are not popular with teachers at public schools or colleges in the USA.
