My name is Meranda, and 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.

"People told me to give up trying to be special and settle down to a regular life. There ain’t nothing wrong with a regular life, and that’s the Lord’s truth…but it wasn’t for me, because I wanted to be something special. I knew how easy it was for a dream to die. I seen that all around me. You could let it die by just looking the other way."
Game by Walter Dean Myers (via simply-quotes)

"Did you ever think about all of the nights you lived through and can’t remember? The ones that were so mundane your brain just didn’t bother to record them. Hundreds, maybe thousands of nights come and go without being preserved by our memory. Does that ever freak you out? Like maybe your mind recorded all of the wrong nights?"
