@Oneeleven: Sure! Give me a second!

10 seconds later…

“At this moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just not facing the truth. Some are evil men, at war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world, six billion souls. And sometimes…all you need is one.”=======================================

“You so much as eyef*ck an agent in this building and I will deport you naked to the Taliban!”

……Ari Gold==========================================

“You shouldn’t have to sacrifice who you are just because somebody else has a problem with it.”

… Carrie Bradshaw

===========================================

So in the end, was it worth it? Jesus Christ. How irreparably changed my life has become. It’s always the last day of summer and I’ve been left out in the cold with no door to get back in. I’ll grant you I’ve had more than my share of poignant moments. Life passes most people by while they’re making grand plans for it. Throughout my lifetime, I’ve left pieces of my heart here and there. And now, there’s almost not enough to stay alive. But I force a smile, knowing that my ambition far exceeded my talent. There are no more white horses or pretty ladies at my door. “

………..Johnny Depp as George Jung – Blow==============================

“You know you have it bad when you actually miss hearing the whine of the subway beneath your feet wherever you go. Can you be in love with a place? It has culture, intelligence, and experience. Is beautiful to look at. Has money, power and resilience and confidence. All this, AND has some of the best fashion sense in the world! (Think of the shoes!)

I *love* New York!”

~I don’t know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot

~ Marylin Monroe

~I don’t need to choose a side, because this debate is morally irrelevant to my life. I’m going to do what I do and everyone else will do what they do, and this is all merely an intellectual excercise that distracts us from our real problems.

~ One of my most awesome friends on practically any subject.

One of my favorite movies, Bright Star:

A poem needs understanding through the senses. The point of diving into a lake is not immediately to swim to the shore but to be in the lake, to luxuriate in the sensation of water. You do not work the lake out, it is a experience beyond thought. Poetry soothes and emboldens the soul to accept the mystery. –John Keats

I’m a quote whore. I seriously post them all the time. I always find so much truth in written words, and so I like to pass them on to friends. I love all the quotes posted. This is one fav, but I have many many many that I love.

“Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds.” Bob Marley.

Here are mine, I just copy and pasted! I used to have a lot from Mean Girls, various other movies, and friends… but I decided to trim them doen to quotes that are more meaningful to me, quotes that define me as a person:

“for I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
–Jeremiah 29:11

“for to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”
–Philippians 1:21

“do not be afraid. I am your shield, your very great reward.”
–Genesis 15:1

“men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. and so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? will strangers hear our names long after we are gone, and wonder who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved?” –troy

“i believe in Christianity as i believe that the sun has risen: not only because i see it, but because by it i see everything else.” –c.s. lewis

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they are right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to be careful who you trust and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

Here are all my quotes!  They are a really random collection!

 

There’s just something that a cowgirl has ain’t no cowboys got. Man she’s something else when she’s one of the boys and something else anytime she’s not. – “That Girl is a Cowboy” — Garth Brooks

“Haven’t you heard. Forget about the after sex cigarette. Its all about the after sex burrito.” – in reference to how amazingly awesome Flying Burrito is.  (Flying Burrito, now named Fighting Burrito, is the place in Ames I always went to after a night out in Campus Town. This quote was said on one of those nights.)

House: Are you a virgin?
Girl: Well, no.
House: Then you are pregnant, Matzeltof.

A polar bear on a tropical island. There are so many reasons that’s amazing. – John Oliver

“I love you…in a really really big pretend to like your taste in muisc, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me.” – Meredith Grey

At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it’s usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we’ve chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need. – Meredith Grey

Sometimes reality has a way of sneaking up and biting us in the ass. And when the dam bursts, all you can do is swim. The world of pretend is a cage, not a cocoon. We can only lie to ourselves for so long. We are tired, we are scared, and denying it doesn’t change the truth. Sooner or later we have to put aside our denial and face the world, head on, guns blazing… Denial. It’s not just a river in Egypt. It’s a freakin’ ocean. So how do you keep from drowning in it? – Meredith Grey

“We ride and never worry about the fall. I guess that’s just the cowboy in us all.” – Tim McGraw

“Don’t be afraid to get after what you want to do or who you want to be, but don’t be afraid to be willing to pay the price.” – Lane Frost

@jalaamarie: Is it sad I know which episode of House that’s from?

Here are mine…

“Just because you aren’t on your knees in church or sitting still in a cramped position doesn’t mean you can’t be talking to God. Just because both you and God are busy doesn’t mean you can’t be in touch.”
~Robert Fulghum

“Miss MaidenName! Why does that poster say ‘Peas on Earth’ like it’s a good thing, when nobody on this earth even LIKES peas?”
~dearest darling student
