Some say the world will end in fire,
"You're everything I never knew I always wanted"
Dreams are the eraser dust I blow off my page.
To open your eyes and see the sky is not enough. To open your ears is still not enough. For only if you open your mind will you hear the clouds whispering love's sweet songs and dancing together across the noisy sea.
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints.
Only when I grew to love you did I understand the relativity of time; then, I wished to embrace you forever, hoping that eternity would last just a few minutes more.
Today is only yesterday's tomorrow. Don't be too sure that things aren't what they seem. Alternatives are hard to find for sorrow. So use your head to muffle all your screams.
Lothar and the Hand People
What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the words I have read in my life.
And the people bowed and prayed
Simon & Garfunkel, Sounds Of Silence
God bless our good and gracious King, Whose promise none relies on; Who never said a foolish thing, Nor ever did a wise one.
John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester
"Remember everything", she says when only the memory remains
It's no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest
When you come to the end of everything you know, and the next step is into the depths of darkness of the great unknown, you must believe one of two things: Either you will step out onto firm ground or you will be taught to fly.
A true friend is the one who knows the song in your heart and sings you the song when you're torn apart
Love isn't like a reservoir. You'll never drain it dry... Its much more like a natural spring. The longer and farther it flows, the stronger and deeper it becomes
Society is an eternal night
If you love something, let it go.
I hope everybody can find a little flame
Counting Crows, "Goodnight Elizabeth"
I couldn't tell fact from fiction,
Maya Angelou, "I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings
Deep hearts, wise minds, take life as God has made it. It is a long trial; An unintelligible preparation for an unknown destiny. This destiny, the true one, begins for man at the first step in the interior of the tomb. There he begins to discern the definite. The definite, think of this word! The living see the infinite; the definite reveals itself only to the dead. Meantime, love and suffer, hope and contemplate. Woe, alas! to him who shall have loved forms, bodies, appearances only. Death will take all from him. Try to love souls, you shall find them again.
Victor Hugo - Les Miserables
And he piled upon the whales white hump. A sum of all the rage and hate felt by his own race.
Moby Dick, About Revenge and how it corrupted him to sacrifice his crew and ship.
Well I've been bound and gagged and I've been terrorized
I let love in
So if you're sitting all alone and hear a-knocking at you door
I let love in
Nick Cave, "Let Love In"
