A Few Good Quotes

Carrie Bradshaw- Sex and the City

Some women aren’t meant to be tamed, but to run free, until they find someone just as wild to run with.

Carrie Bradshaw-Sex and the City

Life and death, energy and peace. If I stopped today it was still worth it. Even the terrible mistakes that I have made, and would have unmade if I could. The pains that have burned me and scarred my soul, it was still worth it, for having been allowed to walk where I have walked. Which was to hell on earth, heaven on earth, back again, into, under, far in between, through it, in it, and above.

By the time you swear you’re his,

Infinite, undying.

One of you is lying

“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.”

Robin Williams

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


You cannot ignore history. History has shown that in general it has been the men who have done the rapin’ and the robbin’ and the killin’ and the war mongering for the last 2000 years. It has been the men who have done the pillaging and the beheading and the subjugating of whole races into slavery. It has been the men who have done the law makin and the money makin’ and most of the mischief makin’. So, if the world isn’t quite what you had in mind, you have only yourselves to thank.
