Jesus Christ is my only reason for living. He's like, my EVERYTHING. And He deserves it. I mean, He only died in the most cruel way humans have ever invented. And then He rose again!

"Now the trouble about trying to make yourself stupider than you really are is that you very often succeed."
-- C.S. Lewis, The Magician's Nephew

"Wretch! . . . it is well that you come here to whine over the desolation that you have made. You throw a torch into a pile of buildings; and when they are consumed you sit among the ruins and lament the fall. Hypocritical fiend! . . ."
-- Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

"Did I request thee, Maker, from my Clay
To mold me Man, did I sollicit thee
From darkness to promote me . . .?"
-- John Milton, Paradise Lost

"For ever, and for ever, farewell . . .!
If we do meet again, we'll smile indeed;
If not, 'tis true this parting was well made."
-- William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
(CHS Class of 2005 Senior quote! hopefully, heh)

"There is no sun without shadow, and it is essential to know the night."
-- Albert Camus, "The Myth of Sisyphus"

"No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself, and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be true."
--Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter
