i have a bunch of quotes that i absolutely love saved in random places on my computer, so i thought i'd list em all here.
"inspiration comes in the middle of the night when you should be doing homework."
"you are who you are, and there's nobody like you. and to try to be like somebody else is just a lie."
"kiss my fcking ass in D Minor!"
"if people make fun of you, you're probably doing something right."
"That's where I spent of lot of my high-school years -- in the closet. It wasn't too cramped, but you do get really hot." (she's talking about recording in ben's closet or something, not being gay)
"Theres nothing sexy about skin and bone, Urgh, you gotta have some junk in the trunk!"
"I was 13 and a little overweight with poofy hair. I was just trying to look busy so the counselors wouldn't try to buddy me up with the runny-nose kid in the corner." (that describes me at 10-13 perfectly)
- all by amy lee. sorry i have so many. i love her.
"in the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends" - Martin Luther King, Jr. (one of my favorite quotes ever)
"Now i understand why so many songs talk about desire as electric. if i could harness what i'm feeling now, i could power a city." - Nic? from Empress of the World. (this describes every time i was with J, back when we were... :])
"if your slate is clean, then you can throw stones. if your slate is not then leave her alone." - from jesus christ superstar. (i wish someone would actually LISTEN TO THIS)
"Mothers, tell your children: Be quick, you must be strong. Life is full of wonder; love is never wrong. Remember how they taught you. How much of it was fear? Refuse to hand it down. The legacy STOPS here" - Melissa Etheridge. Silent Legacy. (another great quote.)
"The stars are always there, but we miss them in the dirt and clouds. We miss them in the storms. Tell them to have hope. We have hope....
Tell them to look up. Tell them to remember the stars."
- to write love on her arms (original story)
"who are you to judge the life i live? i know i'm not perfect - and i don't live to be. but before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean." - bob marley. (i LOVE this one!)
"labels really are for cans" - anthony rapp. (LOVE him!)
"we may have lost the battle, but mischeif always wins the war."
- alaska young in john green's novel Looking For Alaska. (she's my idol. i don't care if she's fictional.)
and i'm going to end with my absolute favorites:
"just remember: if they put me in a straight jacket, i couldn't hug you!" - part of chey(best friend's) signature in my yearbook last year.
"6 AM. The sky glows. Somewhere a bird chirps. I want to shoot it. " - jonathan larson. (hehe, i love this guy.)
