"It's just I lied because... I thought you deserved something better."

"Why does anyone lie? Cuz we're scared? Or crazy? Or jut mean?... There's a million reasons why a person lies... But sometimes, you tell a lie so big... that it changes your whole life... Lie's so big... it makes you think...



"Somewhere there's someone who dreams of your smile and finds in your presence that life is worth while. So when you are lonely, remember it's true. Somebody somewhere is thinking of you."

I hate it when people think they’re cool because they 'party'… they’re not.

A place where there isn't any trouble. Do you suppose there is such a place, Toto? There must be. It's not a place you can get to by a boat or a train. It's far, far away. Behind the moon, beyond the rain. ~ Wizard of Oz

And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I'll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent the summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's what you've given me. That's what I hope to give to you forever. I love you. I'll be seeing you

Some people will want a piece of your identity, changing it to fit what they think you should be, and others will want a piece of your time, wasting it with stuff like getting drunk and getting high and then another piece and another piece and… if everyone wants a piece of you, what’s left of you? ~ Truth Ad

Everything changes eventually. That's just the way life is and you have no control over it. Like suddenly people who you think are always going to be there, they disappear. You know? People die and they move away and they grow up. Everything changes eventually

Dean: If there is a greater power, why is it he can't get you a new sweater?
Jamie: Because, he's too busy looking for your brain. ~ A Walk to Remember

Jamie: Please don't pretend like you know me, ok?
Landon: But I do, I do. We've had all the same classes in the same school since kindergarten. Why you're Jamie Sullivan. You sit at lunch table 7. Which isn't exactly the reject table, but is definitely in self exile territory. You have exactly one sweater. You like to look at your feet when you walk. Oh, oh, and yeah, for fun, you like to tutor on weekends and hang out with the cool kids from "Stars and Planets." Now how does that sound?
Jamie: Thoroughly predictable, nothing I haven't heard before.
Landon: You don't care what people think about you?
Jamie: No. ~ ~ A Walk to Remember

Jamie: Without suffering there would be no compassion.
Landon: Yeah, well tell that to those who suffer. ~ ~ A Walk to Remember

Jamie: Don't worry it's not a bible. It was my mother's. It's got quotes from all her favorite books, and quotes by famous people. Her thoughts. Come on.
Landon: Okay, let's check it out. Okay..."What is a friend? It's a single soul dwelling in two bodies." -Aristotle.
Jamie: Uh uh, right here.
Landon: Okay. "Find out who you are, and do it on purpose." That's Dolly Parton.
Jamie: I always thought she was smart.
Landon: "Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful." ~ ~ A Walk to Remember

A Judy Blume moment is realizing that even as we get older, even as our lives and the people around us are changing-even as we're changing-we'll always be the girls who play in the waves and giggle with our friends.

"no matter whom we choose to love, be they heterosexual, homosexual, asexual, bisexual, trisexual, quadrisexual, pansexual, transexual, omnisexual or that thing where the chick ties the belt around your neck and tinkles on a ballon, it has absolutely nothing to do with who we are as people."   - I now pronounce you chuck & larry


I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me but it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst and then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life

it's not about being who everyone else wants you to be. It's about being yourself && finding someone who loves every bit of it

"So this is my life. I want you to know that I'm both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that can be."

If I died tomorrow, I could sell my organs.
I don't recommend the heart, though...
It's broken.

"I want to thank everyone who said 'you can’t' and I want to thank everyone who said 'you won’t' cause guess what? I can, I will, and watch me!" - Shoshana Bean

No matter how long you have known me, you will never quite be able to figure out what or who I am all about.

Many of my old friends don’t talk to me anymore simply because I like to be alone at times. And I don’t want to hang out 24/7. But I’m okay with that….now if only they were.

"Behind this smile is everything you'll never understand."

Smile though your heart is aching,
Smile even though it's breaking,
When there are clouds in the sky you'll get by,
If you smile through your fear and sorrow,
Smile and maybe tomorrow,
You'll see the sun come shining through for you...
If you'll just Smile...
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you'll just Smile.

"You have to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad, love what you have and remember what you had. Always forgive, but never forget…Learn from your mistakes, but never regret. People change, things go wrong, but always remember...life goes on…"

That's the worst of growing up, and I'm beginning to realize it. The things you wanted so much when you were a child don't seem half so wonderful to you when you get them. -Anne of Green Gables

It was the last night before sorrow touched her life, and no life is ever quite the same again when once that cold, sanctifying touch has been laid upon it. -Anne of Green Gables

I shall give life here my best, and I believe it will give its best to me in return. When I left Queen's my future seemed to stretch out before me like a straight road. I thought I could see along it for many a milestone. Now there's a bend in it. I don't know what lies around the bend, but I'm going to believe that the best does. It has a fascination of its own, that bend. I wonder how the road beyond it goes - what there is of green glory and soft, checkered light and shadows - what new landscapes - what curves and hills and valleys further on. -Anne of Green Gables

If the path set before her was to be narrow, she knew that flowers of quiet happiness would bloom along it. The joys of sincere work and worthy aspiration and congenial friendship were to be hers; nothing could rob her of her birthright of fancy or her ideal world of dreams. -Anne of Green Gables
