Mad Hatter: "You mean you can't take less. It's very easy to take more than nothing."

"To days of inspiration
Playing hookey, making something out of nothing
The need to express -
To communicate,
To going against the grain,
Going insane
Going mad
To loving tension, no pension
To more than one dimension,
To starving for attention,
Hating convention, hating pretension
Not to mention of course,
Hating dear old mom and dad
To riding your bike,
Midday past the three piece suits
To fruits - to no absolutes -
To Absolut - to choice -
To the Village Voice -
To any passing fad
To being an us for once, instead of a them." -Mark Cohen, from RENT

Rememeber when we were little and we thought that if we were nice to people they'd be nice back? Then we grew up and got over it by Sarra Manning

The people we end up lying to end up despising liers the most by myself

Balance yourself like a bird on a beam
In the air she goes there she goes

Oh, my, the moon is on fire

" Dance like nobody's watching; love like you've never been hurt. Sing like nobody's listening; live like it's heaven on earth." -Mark twain

"Live. Laugh. Love"

"All the kids kept trying to grab for the gold ring, and so was old Phoebe, and I was sort of afraid she'd fall off the goddam horse, but I didn't say anything or do anything. The thing with kids is, if they want to grab for the gold ring, you have to let them do it, and not say anything. If they fall off, they fall off, but it's bad if you say anything to them." - Holden Caulfield (The Catcher In The Rye)

"I kept walking and walking up Fifth Avenue, without any tie on or anything. Then all of a sudden, something very spooky started happening. Every time I came to the end of a block and stepped off the goddam curb, I had this feeling that I'd never get to the other side of the street. I thought I'd just go down, down, down, and nobody'd ever see me again." -Holden Caulfield (The Catcher In The Rye)
