hey, beautiful Meranda,
I have an obsession with quotes and lyrics, and basically the written word in general. I don't post any certain kind of quotes, just any that I like.

Note: none of the quotes, lyrics, or photography on this blog are that of mine, unless stated otherwise (mine will be signed with m.r.j. at the bottom). Credit is given when credit can be found, and sometimes credit may accidentally be given to the wrong person.

"Interacting with other people does not come naturally to me; it is a strain and requires effort, and since it does not come naturally I feel like I am not really myself when I make that effort. I feel fairly comfortable with my family, but even with them I sometimes feel the strain of not being alone."
Peter Cameron, Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You (via simply-quotes)

"After a year in therapy, my psychiatrist said to me, ‘Maybe life isn’t for everyone.’"
Larry Brown
"A couple of times in your life, it happens like that. You meet a stranger, and all you know is that you need to know everything about them."
Lisa Kleypas, Sugar Daddy (via simply-quotes)

"You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken."

"Loving something won’t make it yours and I think that’s the biggest slap in the face that life can give you. You could love it more than anyone else and it still wouldn’t matter."
"It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive."

Hunter S.Thompson
"Set a goal so big that if you achieved it, it would blow your mind."
