Quotes: "Your emotions make you a monster. The question, then, is ‘Would you rather be a feeling monster or a non-feeling machine?’" - Lincoln Nielson
"I wonder how it would be to know that this breath now was the last one you ever gonna draw?" - Private Witt, The Thin Red Line
"It's sad that you can't put your arms around memories."
"All the things one has forgotten scream for help in dreams." - Elias Canetti
"Who am I? Who are you? That is to say, "Who are you really?" Do you know? Does anyone know? The restraints of this society make us put up so many walls of bull* and facades to hide who we are that it is almost impossible to tell who anyone really is. We dig ourselves into a comfortable hole to hide away from the eyes of our peers, and it's in this hole that we bury ourselves. Dig yourselves out. Claw your way back into the light of day. Let your true self breathe, and in doing that, live."
"I don't know what's worse, finding the love of your life and losing them - or never knowing if you will." – Carerea
"Books say, 'She did this because.' Life says, 'She did this.' Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised that some people prefer books. Books make sense. The only problem is that the lives they make sense of are other people's lives, never your own." - Julian Barnes
