The person who doesn't make mistakes, is unlikely to make anything.
My plan is to forgive and forget. Forgive myself for being so stupid, and forget you ever existed.
I'm weird with relationships. I think I know what I want, & then I run. I think I run because I'm scared, I'm scared that I might get hurt. Or maybe I just haven't found someone who I know is worth being hurt for.
Just because today was a terrible day, doesn't mean tomorrow won't be the best day of your life. You just have to get there.
Sometimes you have to be your own hero.
What I want is to be needed. What I need is to be indispensable to somebody. Who I need is somebody that will eat up all my free time, my ego, my attention. Somebody addicted to me. A mutual addiction.
I see you sitting there holding her, but you're staring at me.. I know that somewhere in your head you know you're holding the wrong person.
oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world.
it's hard to get by, just upon a smile.
oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world.
and i'll always remember you, like a child, girl.
--wild world - cat stevens
Don't settle for the guy who's going to wait on you. Wait for the one who pushes your buttons and makes you mad on a daily basis. Love isn't supposed to be easy; it's supposed to be worth it.
The thing about you is you're fun, you make me laugh, and you make me feel more alive. Okay, you make me a little crazy sometimes, but there are these moments in my mind, crystal-clear images of you and me and how we fit together, and it all makes such perfect sense, and I know what I want. I want time with you.
I don’t have a fear of commitment- I have a fear of abandonment. We all screw things up, I screw things up. Especially with the people I love. I get needy, I get moody, I get distant, I want to be too close. I get confused, I don’t understand all of it. But I keep pushing because I hope in this thing, the universe, there’s no way I’m the only person out there who wants something this bad. If I want it, someone else out there must too.
You know, I used to spend everyday thinking about you and dreaming about you, and every time you walked by I lost myself. Do you know what it feels like? You couldn't possibly know what it feels like to have that person not have the same feelings back. Look, I'm sorry if you miss the way I looked at you, but I don't miss the way you never looked at me. - "Dawson's Creek"
Do everything you want, and if you'll regret it in the morning, sleep late.
Goodbyes make you think of what you had, what you've lost, and what you took for granted.
And that was it. All this buildup to a great leap, and I didn't fall or fly. Instead I found myself back on the edge of the cliff, blinking, wondering if I'd ever jumped at all. It's not supposed to be like this.
I'm not going to stress over you anymore. It isn't worth it. I tried and maybe I didn't try hard enough, but it didn't seem to work and it's exhausting. And I'm not saying that I don't want you, because believe me, I do. All I'm saying is I'm done chasing after you.
Some mistakes are just too fun to only make once.
So leave yourself intact, cause I won't be coming back. In a phrase to cut these lips: "I loved you." - Wake up, Coheed and Cambria
Someday, someone will come into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else.
You are a victim of the rules you live by.
I'm taking pictures in my mind so I can save them for a rainy day.
You can't have a rainbow without the rain...
And it's so hard to do
And so easy to say
You just have to walk away.
~ "Walk Away", Ben Harper
Without you here, there is less to say.
If you can't convince them, confuse them.
Anyone who lives within their means, suffers from a serious lack of imagination.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain...
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
In the book of life, the answers aren't in the back. ~Charlie Brown

Courage is the complement of fear. A man who is fearless cannot be courageous.(He is also a fool.) - Ashley Baker
Fall in love or fall in hate. Get inspired or be depressed. Ace a test or flunk a class. Make babies or make art. Speak the truth or lie and cheat. Dance on tables or sit in the corner. Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Forgive yourself. And enjoy the ride.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here...we might as well dance.
Sometimes, the hardest things to let go are the ones you never had.
Sometimes the truth is just a lie; sometimes forever runs out of time.
Every story has an end. But in life, every end is just a new beginning.
A life without love is like a year without summer.
Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
I'll throw all of your stuff away, then I'll clear you out of my head. I'll tear you out of my heart, and ignore all your messages. I'll tell everyone we are through, cause I'm so much better without you. But it's just another pretty lie, cause I break down everytime you come around. - "Here we go again", Demi Lovato
It's the little things that define who we are.

I ain't a playa, I just crush a lot.
Don't be a guy, The world is full of guys. Be a MAN.
People are gonna talk about you especially when they envy you and the life you live. Let them. You affected their lives, they didn't affect yours.
You see, You like, You try, You fail.
I see, I like, I want, I get!
You used to make me smile, you used to make me laugh, but now your attitude makes me want to yak.
I am not a player...I'm the game.
Did you fall down the ugly tree and hit every branch on your way down!

If you like someone, tell him, because you might found out that they like you too.
Being normal is not necessarily a virtue. It denotes a lack of courage.

Of glory in the flowers,
We will grieve not, rather find,
Strength in what remains behind..."
