There they both sat, grown up and yet children -- children in heart -- and it was summer, warm delightful summer.
"Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket--safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable."
"Distance does to love what wind does to flame. It douses the weak and ignites the strong."
"Violence isn't the answer... it's the question. YES is the answer."
"This was my dream, my wish. And it didn't come true. So I'm takin' it back. I'm takin' em all back."
"Our generation has had no Great Depression, no Great War. Our war is a spiritual war. Our depression is our lives."
"Your momma is so ugly that a baboon called and asked for her face back for its butt."
"The more I wish for hope, the less hope I have for wishing."
"Love is wrong and girls are f*cking evil!"
~The Ataris (The Last Song I Will Ever Write About A Girl)
"The victor will never be asked if he told the truth."
"Life passes most people by while they’re making grand plans for it. Throughout my lifetime I've left pieces of my heart here and there, and now there's almost not enough to stay alive. But I force a smile knowing that my ambition far exceeded my talent."
"What is a memory? It's the gaping wound that had once been your heart when you learn that you're alone."
"He who forgets will be destined to remember."
~Pearl Jam (Nothing Man)
"Listen. As if to be heard. Speak. As if to make silence. Mean what you say, even when you say nothing. When people see you and you are peaceful, let them be afraid. When people see you when you are angry, let them run. Be deadly in your most peaceful moments."
~Me (Conversations With An Assault Rifle)
