Quotes

...on myself:

I know the things I know, and I do the things I do; and if you do not like me so, to hell, my love, with you!
- Dorothy Parker

...what an odd creature I am - even I know that. Too much space and I'm frightened, too little and I'm frightened. There is indeed no comfortable place for me - I am too near the fire or too far away.
- Falling Angels, Tracy Chevalier

A prayer for the wild at heart, kept in cages.
- Tennessee Williams

I don't want realism. I want magic!
- A Streetcar Named Desire, Tennessee Williams



...on love:

Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.
- Emily Bronte

If I know what love is, it is because of you.
- Herman Hesse

"Be happy," cried the Nightingale, "be happy; you shall have your red
rose. I will build it out of music by moonlight, and stain it with my
own heart's-blood. All that I ask of you in return is that you will be
a true lover, for Love is wiser than Philosophy, though she is wise,
and mightier than Power, though he is mighty. Flame-coloured are his
wings, and coloured like flame is his body. His lips are sweet as
honey, and his breath is like frankincense."

- The Nightingale and The Rose, Oscar Wilde

Conversation has a time and a place
In the interaction of a lover and a mate
But the time of talking, using symbols, using words
Can be likened to a deep sea diver who is swimming with a raincoat

- "I Want You", Savage Garden

We accept the love we think we deserve.
- The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky



...on sex:

Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience.
It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance.
Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati.
It does not mean to flow with exuberance.
It means to suffer.

- House of Leaves, Mark Danielewski

One must do violence to the object of one's desire; when it surrenders, the pleasure is greater.
- Marquis de Sade

I see sex as a great game where two people play by putting their wills against each other over a stake of pleasure. Both are using the other as a tool to make transient art, and the beauty is in how those two find balance in creating that work.
- Jevon


- Sex, Madonna



...on emotion:

It's so pathetic what will keep you coming back.
- Echo, Francesca Lia Block

I seem all mushy and a crybaby and weak, but when someone hurts me everything changes. My heart shuts like a fortress and nothing can open it. That started when I was old enough to realize my dad had left. It's a physical sensation in my chest, a hardening, a heaviness. Wood planks and chains and metal locks. It frightens me. It frightens me as much as anything anyone has ever done to me.
- Violet and Claire, Francesca Lia Block

There's a hallway lined with mirrors where I freaked myself once. Now I know they're me but I want to smash my reflections. So in the mirror I'll look like how I feel. Pieces. But if you break a mirror there are more little whole you's in every piece.
- Dangerous Angels: Missing Angel Juan, Francesca Lia Block

Always learn poems by heart. They have to become the marrow in your bones. Like fluoride in the water, they'll make your soul impervious to the world's soft decay.
- White Oleander, Janet Fitch

Emotions are NOT in the mind. You can't think emotions away. Emotions aren't in the soul. The soul is something that is enriched by emotions, but does not contain or rule them. Emotions are in the heart. Emotions are felt, not thought of. One can't explain emotions, one cannot read about emotions in a book and believe that they can understand them wholeheartedly. One must experience, one must persevere. If one doesn't, then they haven't truly lived, have they?
- Meagan McKernan
