I have a feeling I get watching jaws, when the men are in the little boat in the middle of the dark sea, drunk and singing, and it’s cozy and fun, and the fantasist in me hopes that in this version of the film the shark will decide he’s not evolutionarily advanced enough to hold a grudge against a bunch of humans and he’ll swim away and no one will get eaten. I watch, knowing the worst is a certainty, but still faintly believing I might have the one dud tape for those sensitive souls who can’t face reality. -Anna Maxted, Running in Heels
Patience is the art of hoping. -Vauvenargues
Don't judge me before you know me. The more you use your eyes the less you see.
I learned it is the weak who are cruel, and that gentleness is to be expected only from the strong. -L. Rosten
I don't know if I'm running because I'm scared or if I'm scared because I'm running. - Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation
It ain’t what they call you, it’s what you answer to. -V. C. Fields
Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like expecting the bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian. -Dennis Wholey
When in doubt, make a fool
of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly
creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the
hell, leap. -Cynthia Hiemel
You begin to learn that kisses aren't a contract and presents arent promises. You begin to accept your defeats with your head up and eyes open. You learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrows ground is too uncertain. After a while, you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much of it. So plant your own garden instead of waiting for somebody else to bring you flowers.
That's the risk you take if you change: that people you've been involved with won't like the new you. But other people who do will come along. -Lisa Alther
Regret for the things we do can be tampered with time, it is regret for the things we do not do that is inconsolable. -Sydney J. Harris
Let no man pull you so low
as to make you hate him. -Booker T.
You will do foolish things,
but do them with enthusiasm. -Colette
Some things ain't meant to be. The best things in life are free, And tomorrow is another day. Funny how the truth sounds so cliche. -Jack Ingram
Lose everything and what is real will still remain.
It's not what you've been through; it's how you deal with what you've been through.
Rocks break, everything changes,
even when you think you're sure, especially. To be fair, if I was one
of the fates looking down at the best laid plans of dumb little people,
probably see mine and want to mess with them too. You wanna know about
me in 500 words? I get scared sometimes, I'm disappointed, I have doubts
and I love gettin' my way. I don't like change but I know its good for
me and inevitable, so I welcome it as best I can. There's a poem by Yoham
Framm that says it better than I will " Defy the old dragon,
defy fear. The world may rage and quake, but I shall remain singing in
perfect peace." Yeah things happen, things you don't expect,
or want, or like. The world rages and you become someone you didn't know
you'd ever be. And there you are, in your clothes, in your life, this
is my future, this is me. This is me and I want things I never thought
I would, I want the possibilities a school like princeton can afford.
A place to grow, meet new people, a place for surprise when life turns
out to be nothing I imagined... and to be grateful for it. In perfect
