About Me

"The poets talk about love... but what I talk about is doom, because in the end, doom is all that counts."

"Time is... slowly... tracing his face, but strangely he feels at home in this place..."

"Together as one. Against all others."

"No gods. No kings. Only man."

"A man chooses, a slave obeys. Now would you kindly obey."

"If you're looking for fun. You don't need a reason. All you need is a gun."

"Loving her was like shaking hands with the devil..."

“Why are you being nice to me?”
“Because you’re letting me.”

“People should either be caressed or crushed. If you do them minor damage they will get their revenge; but if you cripple them there is nothing they can do. If you need to injure someone, do it in such a way that you do not have to fear their vengeance.”

"We all see the world end at least once. The ones you need to worry about are the ones who live through it."

"She illuminates all that there is. All that is and was, and will be."

“The only person who can sympathize with you and understands you, is you. So be good to yourself.”

“We are small but we are many
We are many we are small
We were here before you rose
We will be here when you fall.”

“She was beautiful, but she was beautiful in the way a forest fire was beautiful: something to be admired from a distance, not up close.”

"Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they're supposed to run wild until they find someone -- just as wild -- to run with."

"Do me a favor? Don't scream. Just hear what I've gotta say... and then scream."

“I thought I was your destination. Looks like I was just another stop on the line.”

“The view changes from where you are standing.
Words can wound, and wounds can heal.
All of these things are true.”

“We wrapped our dreams in words and patterned the words so that they would live forever, unforgettable.”

“I missed her, deeply, painfully. But life goes on.”

“There are a hundred things she has tried to chase away the things she won't remember and that she can't even let herself think about because that's when the birds scream and the worms crawl and somewhere in her mind it's always raining a slow and endless drizzle.

You will hear that she has left the country, that there was a gift she wanted you to have, but it is lost before it reaches you. Late one night the telephone will sign, and a voice that might be hers will say something that you cannot interpret before the connection crackles and is broken.

Several years later, from a taxi, you will see someone in a doorway who looks like her, but she will be gone by the time you persuade the driver to stop. You will never see her again.

Whenever it rains you will think of her.”

"Goodbye Old Friend
Your peaceful breath slows,
Your eyes gaze upon your world
I offer to you
My strength

Goodbye Old Friend
My hand reaches forth,
Striving for divinity
I offer to you
My love

Goodbye Old Friend
At the steps of your kingdom,
We become one
I offer to you
My life."

“When someone was willing to drown with me, I really didn't want to drown anymore.”

“In a society where you are taught to love everything, what value does that place on love?”

"For revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy America reigns without a rival."

"Smiling faces sometimes pretend to be your friend. Smiling faces show no traces of the evil that lurks within."

“All the drugs in the world won't save us from ourselves.”

“If you want to find out who your real friends are, sink the ship. The first ones to jump aren't your friends.”

“When all of your wishes are granted, many of your dreams will be destroyed.”

"If you could make God bleed, people would cease to believe in Him."

"I can promise you two things: One, I'll always look this good, and two, I'll never give up on you."

"We like people for their qualities but love them by their defects."

"What makes a man a man? A friend of mine once wondered. Is it his origins? The way he comes to life? I don't think so. It's the choices he makes. Not how he starts things, but how he decides to end them."

"Hell will hold no surprises for us."

"There comes a point when you've done such awful things, that you have to wonder if the Devil will welcome you as friend when you arrive."

“Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.”

"I love you but you're crazy, you're doomed."

"Jesus watches from the wall, But His face is cold as stone, And if He loves me As she tells me Why do I feel so all alone?"

"In this place, there is no such thing as civilized."

"Stay strong... stay with me."

"None of the dead come back. But some stay."

"When the fox hears the rabbit's scream, he comes quickly but he doesn't come to help."

“Words are sexier than flesh.”

“Flesh could not keep its glamour, nor eyes their sheen. They would go to nothing soon. But monsters are forever.”

“Horror shows us that the control we believe we have is purely illusory, and that every moment we teeter on chaos and oblivion.”

“Everybody is a book of blood; wherever we're opened, we're red.”

"The dreams of youth are the regrets of maturity."

"It was the men I deceived the most that I loved the most."

"Are we alone in the universe? Either answer is unsettling."

"Dying is easy, the hard part is getting there."

“I may die young, but at least I'll die smart.”

"You were once wild here, don't let them tame you."

"Doom doesn't always sneak up on you. Sometimes it sashays."

"So I just sit in my room, after hours with the moon, and think of who knows my name. Would you cry if I died? Would you remember my face?"

"We gladly feast on those who would subdue us."

"Where must we go...
we who wander this Wasteland
in search of our better selves?"

"No law ever written is as powerful as cold steel."

"Hell is waking up every Goddamn day and not knowing why you're here."

"Like a moth drawn to a flame, your wings will burn in anguish. Time after time. For that is your fate. The fate of the cursed."

"When I'm sad, I'm sad. But when I'm happy, oh god I'm happy."

“Sometimes you lose a battle. But mischief always wins the war”

“Night falls fast. Today is the past.”

“I used to believe in forever, but forever's too good to be true.”

"Some young men fall in love. Some go crazy from other causes."

"Turn the right corner in Sin City, and you can find anything... Anything."

"A politician divides mankind into two classes: tools and enemies."

"The Devil doesn't come dressed in a red cape and pointy horns. He comes as everything you've ever wished for."

"Hell is empty.
All the devils are here."

“To the Looking-Glass world it was Alice that said 'I've a sceptre in hand, I've a crown on my head. Let the Looking-Glass creatures, whatever they be, Come and dine with the Red Queen, the White Queen, and me.”

"I'm just a soul whose intentions are good. Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood."

"Say, if it's alright we can start off as friends, but you think you could fall in love with me?"

"I against my brother, my brothers and I against my cousins, my cousins and I against strangers."

“The same things that made us laugh, make us cry.”

"My heroes are dead and my enemies are in power. What more do you want?"

"I dream of you almost every night.
Hopefully I won't wake up this time."

"Sad stories come with the snow."

"The stories we want to believe, those are the ones that survive."

“We didn’t know we were making memories... we just knew we were having fun.”

"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."

"Who am I? I've never known exactly."

"I'm thinking of the night that all the lights went out and I learned how to see in the dark."

“Man takes up the sword to protect the small injuries that burdened his heart, on a distant day beyond his memories. Man wields the sword to die with a smile on his face, on a distant day beyond his dreams.”

“They will make cemeteries their cathedrals and the cities will be your tombs.”

"Your God of repentance will not save you.
Your holy ghost will not save you.
Your God plutonium will not save you.
In fact...
...You will not be saved!"

"Do not go gently into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light."

"Do you know what sin is?
It isn't that you ate the forbidden fruit.

Do you know what your sin is?
It isn't that you listened to the serpent.

You still don't know what your sin is?
That itself is your sin."

"The land of the free? Whoever told you that is your enemy."

"If you crush the life out of me I'd kiss you with my dying breath!"

"In the end, everybody bleeds the same."

“The smallest of words can be the ones to hurt you, or save you.”

"She wondered how long she would live on in other people's memories."

“I mean, most people want to escape. Get out of their heads. Out of their lives. Stories are the easiest way to do that.”

"Love is only lust all dressed up for church."

“In a perfect world, you could f**k people without giving them a piece of your heart. And every glittering kiss and every touch of flesh is another shard of heart you’ll never see again.”

“Don't get lost. Give it a try. Go find the place that you're wishing for.”

"F**k you and f**k your mother and f**k the f*****g horse you f*****g rode in on. You will not even die in battle. No warrior will taste your blood. No one alive will take your life. You will die a soft, poor death. You will die with a kiss on your lips and a lie in your heart.”

"There is only one way to fight, and that's dirty. Clean gentlemanly fighting will get you nowhere but dead, and fast. Take every cheap shot, every low blow, absolutely kick people when they're down, and maybe you'll be the one who walks away."

“I wish I could've lived my life without making any wrong turns. But that's impossible. A path like that doesn't exist. We fail. We trip. We get lost. We make mistakes. And little by little, one step at a time, we push forward. It's all we can do. On our own two feet.”

"Your hopes have become my burden.
I will find my own liberation."

"If by my life or death I can protect you, I will."

"I might never forget her and she has already forgotten me."

"I announce!
Thy body shall be under my command,
my fate shall be determined by thy sword!
Follow the call of the Holy Grail.
If thou wouldst obey this mind and this reason, obey me!
Then I shall entrust my fate to your sword...!"

*The sage cries out.*
“Open, Gates of Heaven. Bless us and bestow miracles upon us!”
*The sage cries out in regret.*
“Close, Gates of Heaven. Save us from all of our sins and evil!"

The curtain closes.
The millennium comes to a standstill.
Our dreams, our hopes... was a forbidden failure from the start.

The stars fall out of the sky.
Space closes up into nothingness.
The pathway to the center is shrouded along with our sins.
.....I am, at last, filled with joy.

All has been engulfed by darkness.
Nothing can hurt you now.
At last you have been set free from the pain that you carried for so long.
You may now rest without a worry on mind."

"You're right, we are mortal and fragile. But even if we are tortured or wounded, we'll fight to survive. You should feel the pain we feel and understand. I am the messenger that will deliver you to that pain and understanding."

"Devils don't come from Hell beneath us, they come from the sky."

"All is burned and scattered
My trust has been betrayed
The price of all that mattered
Is one that cannot be paid.

I have buried all of the dead
But they have not gone in vain
For all that I have suffered
I will bring them endless pain.

My heart has grown cold
And my soul has become numb
I will have my vengeance
Now see what I’ve become."

"May I see here before me
The throat of my enemy
May my hand hold the dagger
That severs his life
May the hated be cut off
All his sins unforgiven
May he lie in his coffin
His hands round my knife."

"Nobody exists on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. Everybody's gonna die. Come watch TV."

"How do we know for sure who we're praying to, and what if prayers make him stronger?"

"Finally. Things get clearer.
This is how I begin."

"Well, I'm fighting. Whatever it is.
Alone if I have to... but I'm fighting."

"Woman is the only creature in nature that hunts down its hunters and devours the prey alive."

"You do not want a war. You have known violence. You have suffered loss. But you know nothing of war. War is not just the business of death. It is the antithesis of life. Hope tortured and flayed. Reason, dismembered, grinning at its limbs in its lap. Decency raped to death. You will be a murderer and more. You will be a leader. Your anger shall be a weapon. Carry it always, for it is your sword and your scepter. Let it proclaim you the hero and the monster that you will need to be."

"I will stand, again and again."

“Oh time pass so that I forget. Oh time, Great Healer, pass over me and let me forget.”

“When I look at my room, I see a girl who loves books.”

“Had I not created my whole world, I would certainly have died in other people’s.”

“She had become accustomed to being lonely. She was used to walking alone and to being considered 'different.' She did not suffer too much.”

“The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.”

“Forgiveness is a gift of high value. Yet its cost is nothing.”

“I need someone. I need to hold somebody close. And I need more than this holding. I need someone to understand how I feel at a time like now. And the understanding must be part of the holding.”

“Being a writer is a very peculiar sort of a job: it's always you versus a blank sheet of paper (or a blank screen) and quite often the blank piece of paper wins.”

“Oh, magic hour, when a child first knows she can read printed words.”

“Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.”

“Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot.”

“I lived in books more than I lived anywhere else.”

“Tomorrow may be hell, but today was a good writing day, and on the good writing days nothing else matters.”

“The snow may be falling in the winter of my discontent, but at least I've got sarcastic company.”

“She lacks confidence, she craves admiration insatiably. She lives on the reflections of herself in the eyes of others. She does not dare to be herself.”

“There are two ways to reach me: by way of kisses or by way of the imagination. But there is a hierarchy: the kisses alone don't work.”

“I reserve the right to love many different people at once, and to change my prince often.”

“Creation which cannot express itself becomes madness.”

“What a s**t time is. She screws everybody.”

“Because,' she said, 'when you're scared but you still do it anyway, that's brave.”

“Our love of each other was like two long shadows kissing without hope of reality.”

“You get what anybody gets - you get a lifetime.”

“Quite an experience to live in fear, isn’t it? That’s what it is to be a slave.”

“She says nothing at all, but simply stares upward into the dark sky and watches, with sad eyes, the slow dance of the infinite stars.”

“Face your life, its pain, its pleasure, leave no path untaken.”

“I have no plans to love you. No matter what. You can't make me love you.”

“Mirrors,' she said, 'are never to be trusted.”

“We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.”

“I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naïve or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.”

“When we hold each other, in the darkness, it doesn't make the darkness go away. The bad things are still out there. The nightmares still walking. When we hold each other we feel not safe, but better. "It's all right" we whisper, "I'm here, I love you." and we lie: "I'll never leave you." For just a moment or two the darkness doesn't seem so bad.”

“I know that's what people say-- you'll get over it. I'd say it, too. But I know it's not true. Oh, you'll be happy again, never fear. But you won't forget. Every time you fall in love it will be because something in the man reminds you of him.”

“It's like the people who believe they'll be happy if they go and live somewhere else, but who learn it doesn't work that way. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. If you see what I mean.”

“Life is a disease: sexually transmitted, and invariably fatal.”

“There are so many fragile things, after all. People break so easily, and so do dreams and hearts.”

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes...you're Doing Something.”

“Most books on witchcraft will tell you that witches work naked. This is because most books on witchcraft were written by men.”

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”

"What is done out of love takes place beyond good and evil."

"Ultimately, it is the desire, not the desired, that we love."

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”

“But she needs me more than she needs him and I guess being needed is almost as good as being loved. Maybe better.”

“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. I mean everybody. All of the people in the whole world, I mean everybody — no matter how dull and boring they are on the outside. Inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds... Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands, maybe.”

“In teaching your child, do not forget that suffering is good too. It makes a person rich in character.”

“People think dreams aren't real just because they aren't made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.”

"We are born of the blood, made men by the blood, undone by the blood."

“Stories may well be lies, but they are good lies that say true things, and which can sometimes pay the rent.”

"Mother is the name for God on the lips and in the hearts of little children."

"Last night you were unhinged. You were like some desperate, howling demon. You frightened me. Do it again.”

"I would die for her. I would kill for her. Either way, what bliss."

"See you, Cowgirl, someday, somewhere!"

"One by one their seats were emptied.
One by one they went away.
Now the family is parted.
Will it be complete one day?"

"A rose will bloom,
Then it will fade,
So does a youth,
So does the fairest maid."

“God helps those who help themselves.”

"All their wars are merry, and all their songs are sad."

"It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you."

"In that last moment she seemed as wholly luminous as the sun, and I wished to be so brave."

"I am the bone of my sword. Steel is my body and fire is my blood. I have created over a thousand blades. Unknown to death, nor known to life. Have withstood pain to create many weapons. Yet those hands will never hold anything. So as I pray..."

"…did you ever try to put a broken piece of glass back together? Even if the pieces fit, you can’t make it whole again the way it was. But if you’re clever, you can still use the pieces to make other useful things. Maybe even something wonderful, like a mosaic. Well, the world broke just like glass. And everyone’s trying to put it back together like it was, but it’ll never come together in the same way."

“It is impossible to say why we love something or someone. We can come up with reasons if we have to, but the important part happens in the dark, beyond our control. We just know when it is there. And when it goes away.”

“I hate all those flirty-birty games that women make up. Life's too short. If you ever find a man you love, don't waste time hanging your head and simpering. Go right up to him and say, 'I love you. How about getting married?”

“My best friend is the mirror, when I cry it doesn’t laugh at me.”

"Everlasting True love. I am yours."

"I'm sorry everyone. You don't deserve to be forgotten... But I'll remember you. Thank you all for the precious memories."

“My dear friend... I never want to lose you again. I'll protect you... forever and ever until I die..."

"Under the monster's claws
And in between his teeth
Was the shadow a silhouette
Of what I thought I'd be?"

"Thou shall not fall...
Thou shall not die...
Thou shall not fear...
Thou shall not kill..."

"You only live forever in the lights you make.
But even lights can fade away."

"You're a star in a sea of billions... will you shine bright or burn out?"

"My powers might not last, Chloe."
"That's okay. We will. Forever."

《One last thing》
《What?》
《Remember not to forget me》
《I can't forget》

"You shall love your crooked neighbor / With your crooked heart."

“When Reality is a prison, your Mind can set you free.”

"Floating on the sea
Stars are watching me
Current takes me out
What will be will be."

"At least I can say I was not afraid
I loved you all the way
I'd pick the fool any day."

"We're not gonna fall and forget how far you went to pick us up. If one part's hurt the whole body's sick. If one part mourns we all mourn with it. Rejoice, for we will stand with you."

"Unified diversity. Functioning as one body. Every part encouraged by the other. No one independent of another. One flesh abiding. Strong and unifying. Fighting ends in forgiveness. Unite and fight all division."

"No weapon formed against me shall prosper."

“Once more into the fray,
Into the last good fight I’ll ever know.
Live and die on this day,
Live and die on this day”

"And so the carnage has begun
no hiding place for anyone
no quarter given or none taken in the bloodiest of all battles

the war to end all wars is here
the air is filled with heavy fear
Humanity is disappearing suffering as millions see slaughter

If there's no ending to this fight
eternal darkness is our plight
the darkest hour is upon us dying on the edge of destruction
multitudes will fall in the end its all universal
tragedy befalling the end of mankind

Gods cannot help us then no one can save us if
no one can save us then we
will be gone for all time
the - end - is - here - the - end - is - here - the - end - is - now"

"In a world rife with sorrow,
ageless titans and their pilots,
fight an invisible war for all mankind.

Does anyone care anymore,
now that the world is doomed,
to be tread on by monsters,
from beyond the stars... "

"Too weird to live, too rare to die."

"Hundred of blades are growing out of my body. An inescapable death by skewering. I am the bone of my sword. But I already knew that."

"Where we're going, you don't need eyes to see..."

"A cigarette is the perfect type of a perfect pleasure. It is exquisite, and it leaves one unsatisfied. What more can one want?"

"All pretty girls are a trap, a pretty trap, and men expect them to be."

"I think God, in creating man, somewhat overestimated his ability."

"Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood."

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."

"I love you but you're crazy, you're doomed."

"We'll fight until Hell freezes over and then we'll fight on the ice."

"You call it madness, I call it love."

"You've used me and abused me, but you will not destroy me!"

"How fine you look when dressed in rage and you're lucky too; red eyes suit so few."

“All it takes is a single moment.”

“What, exactly, would you give up?”

“But there's more to this world than meets the eye, isn't there?”

“Feel how tight my arms are around you? This is how tight I'll be holding you. No matter where you go or where I go, remember how tight I'm holding you.”

“There comes a point at which you stop giving things up. That is what I won't give up. None of it will I give up for my beautiful sister Ivy who lies in bed. Ivy who used to be alive. Ivy who used to be. Ivy who used. Ivy who.
Ivy-who-is-not-me.
Not me. Not me. Not me.”

"What is the matter with these people, these people who won't stop fighting, won't stop hurting each other...?"

"Your heart literally hurts when it's breaking. You can feel it, every beat another ache, and nothing you can do will stop it, either from beating or breaking."

"You are most powerful when you are most silent. People never expect silence. They expect words, motion, defense, offense, back and forth. They expect to leap into the fray. They are ready, fists up, words hanging leaping from their mouths. Silence? No."

"The instruments of pleasure are now instruments of torture."

"Hell is only a word, the reality is much worse."

“There's no b***h on earth like a mother frightened for her kids.”

"Infidel defilers. They shall all drown in lakes of blood. Now they will know why they are afraid of the dark. Now they learn why they fear the night."

"There comes a time, thief, when the jewels cease to sparkle, when the gold loses its luster, when the throne room becomes a prison, and all that is left is a father's love for his child."

"Pathetic earthlings. Hurling your bodies out into the void, without the slightest inkling of who or what is out here. If you had known anything about the true nature of the universe, anything at all, you would've hidden from it in terror."

“They are rage, brutal, without mercy. But you... you will be worse. Rip and tear until it is done.”

"At this particular moment in time, I don't believe I have a healthier or more deeply-felt respect for any other object in the universe than this here shotgun..."

"It's a disgrace. I was misplaced. Born in the wrong time and in the wrong place..."

"You may have mused in the past, am I mortal?"

"Let this remind you why you once feared the dark."

"When there's no where left to run, run home."

"Where words fail, music speaks."

" 'The End' doesn't mean the story is over, it's just that we won't be following along with them on their new adventures."

"I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life..."

"Never say goodbye. If you don't say goodbye then you aren't really gone, you just aren't here right now."

"People don't cry because they are weak, they cry because they've been strong for too long."

"To defeat an enemy, you must know them. Not simply their battle tactics, but their history, philosophy, art. To defeat an enemy is not enough. They must be broken, shattered, their will to fight utterly quashed and bent to fit your designs. A blade can end a life. Fear can end an empire."

“What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.”

“We imagine people as animals or gods. -But she was just a person, a girl.”

"Don't believe in yourself. Believe in me, who believes in you!"

“You must be careful with kindness. It's usually mistaken for weakness by stupid people.”

“We burn so hard, but we shed so little light; it makes us crazy and sad.”

“A man kills the thing he loves, and he must die a little himself.”

“Wherever I go, I will speak of you with love.”

“You cut up a thing that's alive and beautiful to find out how it's alive and why it's beautiful, and before you know it, it's neither of those things, and you're standing there with blood on your face and tears in your sight and only the terrible ache of guilt to show for it.”

“No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.”

“That which is imagined can never be lost.”

“Nothing else wounds so deeply and irreparably. Nothing else robs us of hope so much as being unloved by one we love.”

“Any fool can be happy. It takes a man with real heart to make beauty out of the stuff that makes us weep.”

“Of all the rash and midnight promises made in the name of love, none was more certain to be broken than "I'll never leave you.”

“Success is everyone’s child. Failure is an orphan.”

“Why doesn’t the fact that I’m human matter to human beings?”

“Let’s revise the old adage for our times. All that it requires for evil to succeed is that enough lazy, stupid b******s believe everything they’re told.”

“Family took a lot more than genes to hold it together”

“Humans would never tell the simple truth when a lie was available....”

“That's how tyranny succeeds. When folks think it won't affect them until eventually it does.”

“Hatred can be pushed aside, but it will always whisper in your ear.”

“If you can't beat them, divide them.”

“If we don't stand up for others, who will be left to stand up for us?”

“It's okay to be scared as long as you use it.”

“I would die for you. But I won't live for you.”

"Stand in the ashes of a trillion dead souls and ask the ghosts if honor matters. The silence is your answer.''

"Of course I forgive you, I love you."

"You carry the way to the end and she carries you.
She feels safe and you feel you are not alone."

"When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching, they are your family..."

“Beneath the skin, the beast within.
Dying to be.
Beneath the stars, Tears and scars.
Heal again till the end.”

"He who stands with me shall be my brother."

"We are all searching for someone whose demons play well with ours..."

"Protecting a man's pride is a woman's duty."

"The ultimate force in the world is the force of the mind, when that force is defeated... all is lost."

"Monsters are real
and ghost are, too

They live
inside of us

And sometimes,
they win...."

"I don't belong in the world."

"Please don't scream. You're beautiful."

“All things are true. God's an Astronaut. Oz is Over the Rainbow, and Midian is where the monsters live."

"It's not the end of the world, it's just the end of the day."

"Do you know what's really scary? You want to forget something. Totally wipe it off your mind. But you never can. It can't go away, you see. And... and it follows you around like a ghost."

"Even a man who has nothing can still offer his life."

"We all go a little mad sometimes."

"Loyalty is the key to our survival. Without it, we are just like them."

"I'm bad and I'm going to hell, and I don't care. I'd rather be in hell than anywhere where you are."

"Death is not the worst. There are things more horrible than death."

"Never let
this universe
regret you."

"You have to be strong.
The hardest thing in this world is to live in it.
Be brave. Live. For me."

"I can't wait for someone to hear me, and wait for someone to touch me. And wait forever to be told I'm forever alone."

"Laugh, and the world laughs with you; weep, and you weep alone."

“For those who fight for it, life has a flavor the sheltered will never know.”

"We came screaming into this world, how could we possibly leave it without a fight?"

"When I was brought low, he saved me."

"Wont it be lonely when we rid ourselves of all these demons, haunting us to keep us company?"

"I was ready to love the whole world, but no one understood me, and I learned to hate.''

"I do not know the answer to the universe I fear, so drown me cold and go and find your perfect man my dear."

"You could shake your knuckles at the sky.
You could get mad and say I don't got nothing.
You could get stuck.
You could grab the past and drag it with you like a bag of rocks.
You can grab that new diet with grape fruits, and a brand new exerciser, and maybe that new washer-dryer set.
You can grab and grab and grab, 'til your fists turn green.
You can grab everything you ever wanted.
Shake it.
Try to make it go boom.
Yeah, you can never ever grab enough.
Pop!"

"Little girls, this seems to say / Never stop upon the way / Never trust a stranger friend / No-one knows where it may end / As you're pretty, so be wise / Wolves may lurk in every guise / Now as then, 'tis simple truth / Sweetest tongue has sharpest tooth."

"Father may you judge us fairly

Mother may you protect all that is innocent

Warrior may you bless the righteous with vigor and courage

Maiden may you cherish and keep all the beauty of this world

Smith may you give strength to all those who labor for survival

Crone may you give wisdom to all who seek it

Stranger, god of death .... not today, not today"

"Stars were falling deep in the darkness
As prayers rose softly, petals at dawn
And as I listened, your voice seemed so clear
So calmly you were calling your god

Somewhere the sun rose, o'er dunes in the desert
Such was the stillness, I ne'er felt before
Was this the question, pulling, pulling, pulling you
In your heart, in your soul, did you find rest there?

Elsewhere a snowfall, the first in the winter
Covered the ground as the bells filled the air
You in your robes sang, calling, calling, calling him
In your heart, in your soul, did you find peace there?"

"I left the me I used to be.
I wanna see this through.
I left the me I used to be.
If only you'd see it, too."

"And finally this question, the mystery of whose story it will be. Of who draws the curtain. Who is it that chooses our steps in the dance? Who drives us mad? Lashes us with whips and crowns us with victory when we survive the impossible? Who is it, that does all of these things?

Who honors those we love for the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us, and at the same time sings that we will never die? Who teaches us what's real and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live and what we'll die to defend? Who chains us? And who holds the key that can set us free... It's you. You have all the weapons you need. Now fight!"

"Everyone has an Angel. A Guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl. But don't let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they're not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart. Reminding that it's us. Its everyone of us who holds power over the world we create."

"You can deny angels exist, Convince ourselves they can't be real. But they show up anyway, at strange places and at strange times. They can speak through any character we can imagine. They'll shout through demons if they have to. Daring us, challenging us to fight."

"If you do not dance you have no purpose. And we don't keep things here that have no purpose. You see, your fight for survival starts right now. You don't want to be judged? You won't be. You don't think you're strong enough? You are. You're afraid. Don't be. You have all the weapons you need. Now fight."

"Wolves all asleep amidst the trees
Bats all a-swaying in the breeze
But one soul lies anxious, wide awake
fearing all manner of ghouls, hags and wraiths.
Birds all silent for the night
Cows turned in as daylight dies
But one soul lies anxious, wide awake
For the Witcher, brave and bold
Paid in coin of gold
He'll chop... and slice you
cut... and dice you
Eat you up whole
Eat you whole"

"Little baby digs holes in the ground
Hoping to find something crawling that feels just like her
Maybe I’ll dig up the whole world"

“I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don’t mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don’t mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing, but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding.”

"I don't know why he saved my life. Maybe in those last moments he loved life more than he ever had before. Not just his life - anybody's life; my life. All he'd wanted were the same answers the rest of us want. Where did I come from? Where am I going? How long have I got? All I could do was sit there and watch him die."

"And I remember when I met him.
It was so clear that he was the only one for me.
We both knew right away.
And as the years went on things got more difficult,
We were faced with more challenges.
I begged him to stay,
Tried to remember what we had in the beginning.
He was charismatic, magnetic, electric, and everybody knew him
When he walked in every woman's head turned.
Everyone stood up to talk to him.
He was like this hybrid, this mix of a man who couldn't contain himself.
I always got the sense that he became torn between being a good person and missing out on all of the opportunities that life could offer a man as magnificent as him.
And in that way, I understood him.
And I loved him, I loved him, I loved him, I loved him.
And I still love him, I love him."

"We all have our tales,
stories we tell to others,
and if you follow the trail,
it starts with our mothers.
We laugh and we cry,
as we relive our prime,
we live and we die,
as we go through time.
Some tales are fiction,
and not completely true,
but if told with conviction,
it's like deja vu."

thx for checking out PunkZombie! I love zombies too, even before they became a fad. The original night of the living dead still creeps me out.

Anyhow, thanks for stopping by.
