Have Some Super Cool Quotes.

Day 6 of 30

I have no idea how many are here. I lost count.

“I just wanna stomp on your face, innocence, because you’re lying in my path.” ~American aphorist Mason Cooley

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”  ~Hunter S. Thompson

“What makes the desert beautiful,’ said the little prince, ‘is that somewhere it hides a well…’”  ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

“If I lose the light of the sun, I will write by candlelight, moonlight, no light. If I lose paper and ink, I will write in blood on forgotten walls. I will write always. I will capture nights all over the world and bring them to you” ~Henry Rollins

“If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery—isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.” ~Charles Bukowski, Factotum

“A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others.” The Wizard of Oz

“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.” ~Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum LP

“Everyone who drinks is not a poet. Maybe some of us drink because we’re not poets.” ~Dudley Moore, Arthur

“You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing, and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life.” ~Jiddu Krishnamurti

“The difference between my darkness and your darkness is that I can look at my own badness in the face and accept its existence while you are busy covering your mirror with a white linen sheet. The difference between my sins and your sins is that when I sin I know I’m sinning while you have actually fallen prey to your own fabricated illusions. I am a siren, a mermaid; I know that I am beautiful while basking on the ocean’s waves and I know that I can eat flesh and bones at the bottom of the sea. You are a white witch, a wizard; your spells are manipulations and your cauldron from hell yet you wrap yourself in white and wear a silver wig.” ~C. JoyBell C.

“Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn’t know this either, but love don’t make things nice—it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren’t here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die. The storybooks are bullshit. Now I want you to come upstairs with me and get in my bed!” ~Ronny Cammareri, Moonstruck

“I say, go all the way. Get down and get dirty. When you’ve had enough, stay hungry. Shag all night, sleep ’til noon. Love like a maniac, hunt like a warrior, trust like a virgin, run with the devil, dance like a fly girl, sing like a skylark, scream like a banshee, and make long, sweet love under a strawberry moon in a butterscotch sky.” AC

Willy Wonka: “Charlie, don’t forget what happened to the man who suddenly got everything he always wanted.”

Charlie Bucket: “What happened?”

Willy Wonka: “He lived happily ever after.”

~Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

The whole world’s in love… Are you? ❤ ❤ ❤

  1. This is from a great film called cloud atlas, book written by David Mitchell I should say …….
    Our lives are not our own. We are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.

Tell me you dig it.
