Idk if i'd be more attracted to someone that knew all them, or someone that felt the need to cheat so i thought she knew them all..
Here's the deal with the quote game.. people like stuff.. der. But the truth is that in a movie, or a song, or a book, there's often one pivotal moment that captures the entire core of the philosophy/vibe/thing they are connecting to.. i've gone into my faves and ripped out that moment as accurately as i could.. in general i like the entire body of work of whoever, often an entire genre simply because this little bite opened me up to it...
For example, for me, the whole story of Pride and Prejudice.. the whole genre of Romantic Comedy/Chick Flick comes down to this one moment where games, pageantry and posturing give way to the realization that I am uncontrollably connected to someone in a way i had never anticipated.. that the world is bigger than myself.. it's all in that quote.. Get it? Go play.
Open your sensitive mouth And talk to me
"I've been the cause of that ball being a torture to her instead of a pleasure. But truly, truly it's not my fault, or only my fault a little bit,' she said, daintily drawling the words 'a little bit.'"
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
If I must be lonely, I think I'd rather be alone
I look at you... and I'm home
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die.
Graze on my lips, and if those hills be dry,
Stray lower, where the pleasant fountains lie
Finds a streetlight, steps out of the shade
Says something like, "You and me babe, how about it?"
There is no if... just and
I may not be a smart man, but I know what love is.
I wish I didn't know you.. But I do.
Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they'e supposed to run wild until they find someone, just as wild, to run with.
Sometimes the things you want the most don't happen, and what you least expect happens. I don't know - you meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you. And then you meet one person and your life is changed forever.
I have money, it's trust and character I need around me. You know, who you choose to be around you lets you know who you are. One car in exchange for knowing what a man's made of? That's a price I can live with.
You know when you hear about someone and then you meet them? That's happening now.
-What if this is it? The real thing. A love that lasts forever.
What you describe is all in fairy tales.
-No, it's not.
And how do you know? From personal experience?
-No, I looked for it, and I didn't find it. But that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'
OK, yes it's a mistake. I know it's a mistake, but there are certain things in life where you know it's a mistake but you don't really know it's a mistake because the only way to really know it's a mistake is to make the mistake and look back and say 'yep, that was a mistake.' So really, the bigger mistake would be to not make the mistake, because then you'd go your whole life not knowing if something is a mistake or not. And dammit, I've made no mistakes! I've done all of this; my life, my relationship, my career, mistake-free. Does any of this make sense to you?
-I dunno, you said mistake a lot.
You must be the change you want to see in the world.
"'Maybe I did not live as I ought to have done,' it suddenly occurred to him. 'But how could that be, when I did everything properly?' he replied, and immediately dismissed from his mind this, the sole solution of all the riddles of life and death, as something quite impossible."

Much of your pain is self-chosen.
It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquillity:
"[...] stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow."
"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."
The Tao that can be spoken of is not the enduring and unchanging Tao. The name that can be named is not the enduring and unchanging name.
Having no name, it is the Originator of heaven and earth; having a name, it is the Mother of all things.
We should rid ourselves of desires if we wish to observe its subtlety; we should allow our desires if we wish to see something of its manifestations.
I'd miss my ipod if it disappeared, but i wouldn't say "i could never do without it"
UPDATE:Somebody stole my ipod.. i kinda miss it.
Update2:obtained an iPhone.. It's my friend and gives me mad shuffle-love
Oh, and Taoism.. LOVE the Taoism. Not a Taoist, but LOVE the Taoism.
*thats not true anymore. Five years ago, this site used to have these really fun tests.. People would end up answering hundreds of questions about themselves.. "What kind of animal would you be?", "when would be your ideal era to live in", "how kinky are you"...
Your match % was based on those answers.
Nowadays, nobody takes them, so matches aren't as accurate.
