(01) ⌜quotes post⌟  
Inspired by nocturnes' awesome quotes post, and transferred from here.

A post full of quotes from books, tv shows, etc that really moved me; some made me laugh or smile, others made me really think. They're all just generally brilliant.


Please do not comment on this post as this is collection purely for my personal use. However, do feel free to look around, and maybe even start your own quotes post!

Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in you or the world, that one song stays the same, just like that moment. Which is pretty amazing, when you actually think about it.

Fandom is distraction. Fandom is endangering your job, your grades, your relationships, your bank account. Fandom gets no work done. Fandom is too much work. Fandom was/is just a phase. Fandom could never be just a phase. Fandom is where you found a friend, a sister, a kindred spirit. Fandom is where you found a talent, a love, a reason.

Fandom is where you found yourself.

the melting ice
disappears completely;
If only your heart
Would melt like that to me.

It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure.

You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to love by loving.

So yes, we could kiss. I could kiss you and you could kiss me. There's no science, plane ticket or clock stopping us. But if we kiss, it will end the world. And I've ended the world before. No one survived. Least of all me.

Where should I head towards?
Even if there isn’t an answer,
I’ll feel better by writing it down
I’ve looked for a pair of helping hands
But I couldn’t feel them, see them
I only face towards the darkness
And hear the sounds of my hopeless screams.

s,

I never realized how incredible you were when I had the chance and when we were close and when you told me how much you cared about me.

and now we’ve drifted and I’ve come to realize how beautiful you really are, but you want nothing to do with me.

I can’t believe myself.

This is the first day of the future
and all I want is you.
I wear a pair of socks you left here
but I know, I know,
I know nobody could ever fill your shoes.

I can see so clearly when your smoke gets in my eyes.
Please me with your promises and hurt me with your lies.
Baby can you hear the message I am sending?
Love me like the world is ending.

This is the last day of existence
and all I want is you.
And there’s a certain sadness
But I know, I know, I know the sky is what makes the ocean blue.
I know, I know,
I know the sky is what makes the ocean blue.

I can see so clearly when your smoke gets in my eyes.
Please me with your promises and hurt me with your lies.
Baby can you hear the message I am sending?
Love me like the world is ending.
Love me like the world is ending

And they all say to pour it has to rain.
So don’t complain if we get wet
In the deep end.

I can see so clearly when your smoke gets in my eyes.
Please me with your promises and hurt me with your lies.
Baby can you hear the message I am sending?
Love me like the world is ending.
Love me like the world is ending.

Come on and love me like the world is ending.

- Ben Lee, Love Me Like The World Is Ending

So don’t say you’re on the lookout for nice girls, guys, when you pass us up on every step you take.

Sometimes we go undercover; sometimes we go in disguise: sometimes when that girl in the low cut shirt or the too tight miniskirt won’t answer your catcalls, sometimes you’re looking at a nice girl in whore’s clothing - - we might say we like the attention, we might blush and giggle and turn back to our friends, but we’re all thinking the same thing: “This isn’t me. Tomorrow morning, I’ll be wearing a teeshirt and flannel shorts, I’ll have slept alone and I’ll be making my hungover best friend breakfast. See through the disguise. See me.”

You never do. Why? Because you only see the exterior, you only see the slutty girl who welcomes those advances. You don’t want the nice girl.. so don’t say you’re looking for a relationship: relationships take time and energy and intent, three things we’re willing to extend - - but in return, we’re looking for compassion and loyalty and trust, three things you never seem willing to express.

Maybe nice guys finish last, but in the race they’re running they’re chasing after the whores and the sluts and the easy-targets… the nice girls are waiting at the finish line with water and towels and a congratulatory hug (and yes, if she’s a nice girl and she likes you, the sweatiness probably won’t matter), hoping against hope that maybe you’ll realize that they’re the ones that you want at the end of that silly race.
