well i, too, have a notebook especially for quotes Im into the cheesy love ones..so heres a few of my favs..


-..somewhere, somehow, it should be possible to touch someone and never let go again...to hold someone not for a moment but forever, and to always have hope that the guy who turns around as he's walking away...


-a true friend is someone who can see the truth and pain in your eyes even when you're fooling everyone else


-What I say and what I feel are two entirely different things. Thats just the way I am

heres some more!! ~~>

*If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will keep you from seeing the stars


*If you love someone, let them go, if they dont come back, stalk them


*When we were together you always said you'd die for me, now that we've broken up..i think its time you kept your promise


*A friend would bail you outta jail, but a true friend would be in the cell right next to ya


*I'll be your Dixie chicken if you'll be my TEnnessee lamb, and we can walk together, down in Dixie Land


*Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm


*I thank everyone that has caused me to suffer. Without you, I would have no reason to express myself

Back again

Here's one I came up with a while back.

"If you want to backseat drive in my life, go ahead. Just don't expect me to give you the map."

And here's one from Saturday Night Live:

"And ninety percent of users will experience an instantaneous and horrifying sleep paralysis containing a bleak vision of mortality."

-- Trilocaine commercial

I'd use that one to sabotage a commercial endorsement in the event that you are forced to give one for some dumb reason...

"If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh"

-- Magus

Grow old along with me,
the best is yet to be.

This was by Robert Browning, but in what?? Was it a poem or in a letter to Elizabeth?
Can someone enlighten me?

God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Unknown

One may have a blazing hearth in one's soul and yet no one ever come to sit by it. Passers-by see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on the way. ~Vincent Van Gogh

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. ~John Muir

A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives roses. ~Chinese proverb

.and of course!

The heart and soul have no illusion of boundries when friendship is the quest ~My Angel

Work like you

Love like you've
never been hurt.

nobody watching.

Ok, voting time. Anyone can vote. Just post a reply with the quote and who posted it. Maybe that should be done in a separate thread. I'll start it. It can be called "Voting thread". Gee, original. Oh, well. So come vote people!

....peace as a primary objective is dangerous because it implies that we would sacrifice any principle for the sake of it....

i know that i cant add anymore but i want to add this to my library so i am adding some of my own.

true beauty is often hidden in darkness

i will be your dixie chicken if you'll be my teneesee lamb. hehehe sorry had to say that one again

think clown vomit

you rarely meet a whino with perfect pitch

there are only 2 places in the world, over her and over there

think off-center

when you sneeze all the numbers in your head go up by one.

this is just some printing

if you love someone set them free if they come bac set them on fire.

i know i know i am messed up hehehee

I'm a saint and I'm sinner,
I'm a loser and a winner,
I'm steady and unstable,
I'm young but I am able...

"Why do musicians compose symphonies and poets write poems?
They do it because life wouldn't have any meaning for them if they didn't.
That's why I draw cartoons. It's my life.''
--Charles Shultz

or perhaps

A bell is not bell until you ring it
a song is not a song until you sing it
Love in your heart is not put there to stay
love is not yours ..till you give it away
--Oscar Hammerstein
