- "What are you trying to say? I'm crazy? When I went to YOUR schools, I went to YOUR churches, I went to YOUR institutional learning facilities? So how can you say I'M crazy?"
Baby I'm me, so who you? You're not me, you're not me and I know that ain't fair, but I don't care...
I am whatever you say I am.
I am an enigma wrapped in a puzzle trapped in a box.
I am the wind beneath your wings.
I am Legend.
I am way more than can be described within the boundaries of this text box.
I am God's greatest gift.
I am also quite humble.
Really, most of the time, I am full of it...
- There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. By doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you will still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to all things.
He that increaseth knowlege, increaseth sorrow.
"Don’t do what you want. Do what you don’t want. Do what you’re trained not to want. Do the things that scare you the most."
"Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be."
"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Now we're all sons of bitches"
"One hundred percent of the shots you don't take, don't go in."
"Never let 'em see you sweat.
Even if it hurts, don't show it.
If you can do that, hang in there when you got your bell rung a little, then all of a sudden you start feeling like you can do anything.
And once you get past that barrier, you know it's time to return the favor:
BLOW SOMEBODY UP OUT THERE."
"Happiness makes up in height what it lacks in length."
"Even though my heart has stopped beating, it still aches."
Everything happens for a reason.
"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don't bother concealing your thievery-celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean Luc-Godard said: 'It's not where you take things from-it's where you take them to.'"
"Play no favorites. Everybody dies."
"I have this theory of convergence, that good things always happen with bad things. I know you have to deal with them at the same time, but I just don't know why they have to happen at the same time. I just wish I could work out some schedule. Am I just babbling? Do you know what I mean?"
-Diane Court (from Say Anything)
"Nah, the way mothers feel for they sons, how fathers feel for they daughters
When he date, he straight, chip off his own papa
When she date, we wait behind the door with the sawed off
Cause we think no one is good enough for our daughters"
"This cosmic dance of bursting decadence and withheld permissions twists all our arms collectively, but, if sweetness can win, and it can, then I'll still be here tomorrow to high-five you yesterday my friend. Peace." -Royal Tart Toter
