My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am.
The more people I meet, the more I love my dog
"The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing." - Albert Einstein
"Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me I wish none of this had ever happened
Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All you have to decide is how to use the time that is given to you."
"I can't do this, Sam.
I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines, it'll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand, I know now. Folks in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going, because they were holding onto something.
What are we holding onto, Sam?
That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for."
"How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart, you begin to understand... there is no going back? There are some things that time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep... that have taken hold."
You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet.
Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.
The things you own end up owning you. It's only after you lose everything that you're free to do anything.
The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. stone crumbles. wood rots. people, well, they die. but things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.
You can kill a lifetime without feeling anything but skin.
You must realize that one day you will die. Until then you are worthless.
We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.
People have to really suffer before they can risk doing what they love.

If death meant leaving the stage long enough just to change costumes and become a new character, would you speed up? Or slow down?
Until you find something to fight for, you settle for something to fight against.
The joke is, we all have the same punch line. The answer is, there is no answer."

If you've read this far, you probably can see this journal is friends only.
I am a very open person, I love meeting new people. I'm open minded, and I respect everyone's point of view, whether I agree with you or not. In my LJ I talk about my friends, family, dog, life, school, my boyfriend, my on going problems, and more.
This is the tip of the iceburg, beyond this point this LJ contains some of my darkest secrets and biggest dreams.
So, if you are interested, leave a comment and/or friend me and I'll do the same. =o)
