+ 351 What this country needs is a great poem. John Brownís Body was a step in the right direction. Iíve read it once, and Iím reading it again. But itís too long to do what I mean. You canít thrill people in 300 pages... The limit is about 300 words. Kiplingís ďRecessionalĒ really did something to England when it was published. It helped them through a bad time. Let me know if you find any great poems lying around. Herbert Hoover

+ 280 Every time, in the night, Iím thinking about your smile, Everything will be alright, If you will ever be mine? Miriam Leiva

+ 346 I canít help but to write, I have a inner need for it. If Iím not in the middle of some literary project, Iím utterly lost, unhappy and distressed. As soon as I get started, I calm down. Kaari Utrio

+ 257 You will think, They hit me, but Iím not hurt. They beat me up, but I donít remember it. I wish I could wake up. Then I would get another drink.
Mishlei 23:35

+ 292 Hi. Iím Spider Jerusalem. I smoke. I take drugs. I drink. I wash every six weeks. I masturbate constantly and fling my steaming poison semen down from my window into your hair and food. Iím a rich and respected columnist for a major metropolitan newspaper. I live with two beautiful women in the cityís most expensive and select community. Being a bastard works. Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan, Vol. 4: The New Scum

+ 313 It goes without saying that in order for me to buy a teapot at the Oneida, Ltd., outlet store at the Sherrill Shopping Plaza, the second coming of Jesus Christ had to have taken place in the year 70 A.D. To the Oneida Community, 70 A.D., the year the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, marks the beginning of the New Jerusalem. Which means weíve all been living in heaven on earth for nearly two thousand years. Everyone knows there is no marriage in heaven (though one suspects thereís no shortage of it in hell). So, the Oneidans said, weíre here in heaven, already saved and perfect in the eyes of God, so letís move upstate and sleep around. (Iím paraphrasing.) Sarah Vowell, Assassination Vacation

+ 338 Iím dark but lovely,
women of Jerusalem,
dark like the tents of Kedar,
like the curtains of Solomon.
Song of Solomon 1:5

+ 98 Iím very much obliged to you

+ 16 I do struggle because Iím attracted to beautiful things, yet at the same time I am actually very aware, in some sense, of their lack of value and that the most important things in life are your connections to other people. Tom Ford

+ 26 Iím a believer in fate and in fulfilling your destiny. Iíve always had a kind of an inner voice that I have learned to listen to. Tom Ford

+ 17 Iím just not intimidated by anyone. Tom Ford

+ 1 I play until my fingers are blue and stiff from the cold, and then I keep on playing. Until Iím lost in the music. Until I am the music Ė notes and chords, the melody and harmony. It hurts, but itís okay because when Iím the music, Iím not me. Not sad. Not afraid. Not desperate. Not guilty. Jennifer Donnelly

+ 0 And I thought about how many people have loved those songs. And how many people got through a lot of bad times because of those songs. And how many people enjoyed good times with those songs. And how much those songs really mean. I think it would be great to have written one of those songs. I bet if I wrote one of them, I would be very proud. I hope the people who wrote those songs are happy. I hope they feel itís enough. I really do because theyíve made me happy. And Iím only one person. Stephen Chbosky
