Since I can rememember I've always loved reading, quoting, remembering my life in some kind of documentated way, diary, livejournal, scraps bits of paper, notepads...Here are some of my favourite quotes...
"Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery"- Malcolm X
"Immediately after saying this, Royal realised that it was true"- Narrator, The Royal Tenenbaums.
"You had to do someone else, You should of been by yourself, Instead of here with me."-Skunk Anansie-Secretly.
"And when I looked at the page infront of me I realised, This was my life" - Gwen Stefani, No Doubt, Storytellers.
"3 I foretold the former things long ago,
my mouth announced them and I made them known;
then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.
4 For I knew how stubborn you were;
the sinews of your neck were iron,
your forehead was bronze.
5 Therefore I told you these things long ago;
before they happened I announced them to you
so that you could not say,
'My idols did them;
my wooden image and metal god ordained them.'
6 You have heard these things; look at them all.
Will you not admit them?
"From now on I will tell you of new things,
of hidden things unknown to you.
7 They are created now, and not long ago;
you have not heard of them before today.
So you cannot say,
'Yes, I knew of them.'
8 You have neither heard nor understood;
from of old your ear has not been open.
Well do I know how treacherous you are;
you were called a rebel from birth.
9 For my own name's sake I delay my wrath;
for the sake of my praise I hold it back from you,
so as not to cut you off.
10 See, I have refined you, though not as silver;
I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.
11 For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this.
How can I let myself be defamed?
I will not yield my glory to another."
The Bible, Isaiah, Chapter 48.
What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why,
I have forgotten, and what arms have lain
Under my head till morning; but the rain
Is full of ghosts tonight, that tap and sigh
Upon the glass and listen for reply,
And in my heart there stirs a quiet pain
For unremembered lads that not again
Will turn to me at midnight with a cry.
Thus in winter stands the lonely tree,
Nor knows what birds have vanished one by one,
Yet knows its boughs more silent than before:
I cannot say what loves have come and gone,
I only know that summer sang in me
A little while, that in me sings no more.
-- Edna St. Vincent Millay
I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see.- Alice in Wonderland.
"Life is a fleeting moment in the grand scheme of time. Memories fade, relationships dissolve, and our control on life slips away. Few things, if anything, remain constant."
"We favor the simple expression of the complex thought.
We are for the large shape, because it has the impact of the unequivocal.
We are for flat forms because they destroy illusion and reveal truth.
The artist was attempting to make art more than something to just look at,
they wanted it something to be involved in, something too big to ignore.
It is our function as artists to make the spectator to see the world our way,
not his way." - Le Tigre
