When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible, isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up this whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life. You give them a piece of you. They don't ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like 'Maybe we should just be friends' or 'How very perceptive' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. Nothing should be able to do that. Especially not love. I hate love."
- Neil Gaiman, The Kindly Ones

"Summer romances begin for all kind of reasons, but when all is said and done, they have one thing in common. They are shooting stars, a spectacular moment of light in the heavens, fleeting glimpse of eternity, and in a flash they're gone."

- Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

The Gods envy us. They envy us because we’re mortal. Because any moment might be our last. Everything’s more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier then you are now. We will never be here again.

There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.

Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.
For I have known them all already, known them all:—
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to the understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for a while, leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.

- Gibran Khalil Gibran

I promise you.
Everybody sorichyuh ijeh
neowa nayeh moksoriga ohn sesangeh oollyupyujigeh
boori ggeojil ddaedo you are my sunshine
soomi meojeul ddaedo with you I’ll be fine
You’re divine, you’re my everything
You are the one that makes me sing
Nothing in the universe can change that
you’re like a song on a constant playback
I promise you - naega neol jikyujoorgeh
I promise you - naega neol mideojoorgeh
I promise you - neoyeh modeun apeum

I promise you.
Everybody yell out now
So you and my voice can spread out in this world
Even if the light turns off you are my sunshine
Even if my breath seems to stop
With you, I'll be fine
You're divine, you're my everything
You are the one that makes me sing
Nothing in the universe can change that
You're like a song on a constant playback
I promise you I'll keep you safe
I promise I'll believe in you
I promise I'll erase your pain in my embrace
Come to me now

And, this, is my mind
It goes over and over
The same old lines
And, this, is my brain
It's torturous analytical thoughts
Make me go insane

- Kate Nash, Mouthwash

Yeah, I could dream more then
I could believe more then
That the world could only get better
I could be free more then
I could pretend more then
That this life could only show me good times
Once when I was little

- James Morrison, Once When I Was Little

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

Only in books could you find pity, comfort, happiness--and love. Books loved anyone who opened them, they gave you security and friendship and didn't ask anything in return; they never went away, never, not even when you treated them badly.

When you can't bear something but it goes on anyway, the person who survives isn't you anymore; you've changed and become someone else, a new person, the one who did bear it after all.

At clubs there's never any pause between one song and the next. That's not surprising, but it's still very important. Somewhere out there the beat is always throbbing, the beat is always throbbing within you, somewhere inside your body, you're completely passive in the grip of the sound; it feels like you're not even there. It feels like you're not even you.

- Mari Akasaka, Vibrator

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

— Mark Twain
