a series of perfectly lucid moments.



"Your heart just breaks, that’s all. But you can’t judge, or point fingers."

- Audrey Hepburn



"He said, “What are you doing here, honey? You’re not even old enough to know how bad life gets.”
“Obviously, Doctor,” she said, “you’ve never been a thirteen-year-old girl.
""

- The Virgin Suicides, Jeffrey Eugenides



"I am a dreamer. I know so little of real life that I just can’t help re-living such moments as these in my dreams, for such moments are something I have very rarely experienced. I am going to dream about you the whole night, the whole week, the whole year."
- White Nights, Fyodor Dostoyevsky



"People's bullshit and people's fakeness are the main reasons I like to be alone."



"All I know is that he’ll always be with me - in my head, in my heart… He’ll always be there. No matter what."
- Black Rabbit Summer, Kevin Brooks




"You don't know who I am, but I know all about you."



"Forgiveness is never easy. Bitterness is easy, hatred is easy. But forgiveness, that is a tough one."

- One Tree Hill



"I wondered if that’s what it was all about. Friends. People you know. People you used to know. People you think you once knew, but you probably never did. You probably just knew a part of them, the part of them that was your friend. And the rest, the parts of them that you didn’t know - the twisted parts, the untrue parts, the parts you’re seeing now - well, back then you just ignored them."
- Black Rabbit Summer, Kevin Brooks



"They tell you to be yourself, then they judge you."



"If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things that are missing. If you don’t have love in your life, no matter what else there is, it’s not enough."
- Ann Landers



"I couldn’t think. I just couldn’t seem to get anything straight in my mind. The thoughts were there - thoughts, memories, facts, feelings - but I couldn’t do anything with them. They wouldn’t keep still. They just kept buzzing around in my head, like a room full of flies, and every time I tried to grab hold of one, all I’d get was a handful of nothing."

- Black Rabbit Summer, Kevin Brooks



"I am attracted to tragic characters."



"You don’t need to give reasons for the things you do - you just have to do what you want. And sometimes the thing that seems messed up to everyone else is what’s right for you. You have to do it and not be ashamed for it."
- Kristen Stewart



"It was like existing in a series of perfectly lucid moments, none of which were connected."
- Black Rabbit Summer, Kevin Brooks



"Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities — always see them, for they’re always there."
- Norman Vincent Peale



"The streets had that tired-out Sunday morning feel to them - the morning after the Saturday night before - and I don’t mind admitting that I took some kind of pitiful pleasure from the gloom and the emptiness all around me. I wanted everything to be miserable. I’d been through a night of madness. I was cold, I was wet, my head was still throbbing…

I wanted to feel sorry for myself. So I did. I walked through that cold summer rain, sulking and shivering and hurting, and I let myself wallow in whatever misery I could find. I knew it was stupid and selfish and childish, but I didn’t really care anymore. I wanted to wallow. I wanted to be selfish and childish. I wanted to be the guy in the movie who’s down on his luck and all alone in the rain, and if I could have had some miserable music playing in the background, and a million people watching me on TV, I probably would have wanted that too."
- Black Rabbit Summer, Kevin Brooks




"I don't know what we are. Sometimes I feel like we're friends. Sometimes I feel like we're more than friends. But sometimes I feel like I'm just a stranger to you."




"Sometimes we don't do things we want to do, so that others won't know we want to do them."




"It’s strange that words are so inadequate. Yet, like the asthmatic struggling for breath, so the lover must struggle for words."
- T. S. Eliot



"That was then, and things were different then. We were different. We were kids. And we weren’t kids anymore. We’d moved on to secondary school, we’d turned thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen…and things had gradually changed. You know how it is - the world gets bigger, things drift apart, your childhood friends become people you used to know."
- Black Rabbit Summer, Kevin Brooks



"You see, I take the parts that I remember and stitch them back together to make a creature that will do what I say or love me back."
- Richard Siken



"This gave his face a strange kind of almost-beauty - neither ugly nor beautiful, but at the same time both ugly
and beautiful."

- Black Rabbit Summer, Kevin Brooks



"The best part of me is hidden."




"I wasn’t really aware of much after that. I suppose I must have known what I was doing, and where I was going, and I remember thinking to myself at the time how wonderfully clear everything was…and it was. Everything in and around me was clearer than it had ever been before: my thoughts, my senses, my feelings, the world. But it was the kind of clarity that only works in isolation - like the concentrated beam of a spotlight, lighting up one thing at a time - and every time the spotlight moved on, focusing brightly on something else, I would forget what had been left behind in the darkness."

- Black Rabbit Summer, Kevin Brooks



"'Nobody important?' Blimey, that's amazing! Do you know, in nine hundred years of time and space, I've never met anyone, who wasn't important?"
- The Doctor, Doctor Who



"In my life,
why do I give valuable time,
to people who don't care,
if I live or die?"

- Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now, The Smiths



"I didn’t want anything to do with anything back then. All I wanted to do was lie on my bed and stare at the ceiling. I had no idea where this lethargy of mine had come from, but in the three weeks or so since school had finished, I seemed to have got into the habit of not doing anything at all, and I was finding it a hard habit to break. Getting up late every morning, hanging around the house for hours, sitting out in the sun for a while…maybe reading a book, or maybe not. What did it matter? The way I saw it, the days and nights would pass whether I did anything or not. And they did. The mornings passed, the afternoons passed, the evenings turned into sunset nights…and, before I knew it, I’d be lying on my bed again, staring at the ceiling, wondering where the day had gone, and why I hadn’t done anything, and why I still couldn’t bothered to do anything now."
- Black Rabbit Summer, Kevin Brooks



"You can’t measure the mutual affection of two human beings by the number of words they exchange."
- Milan Kundera




"We were past all that now. We hardly even knew each other anymore. We moved in different circles. We did different things. We had different friends. All we had in common now was the shared memory of a time when we used to mess around together with Raymond and Pauly and Eric. Memories of gangs and dens, of long days down by the river, or in the woods…memories of breathless young kisses and awkward fumbles in the abandoned factory at the back of the lane. Memories…that’s all they were."
- Black Rabbit Summer, Kevin Brooks



"First day of school,
and I was very nervous.
No one knew me,
no one knew me.

Hello teacher, tell me,
what's my lesson?
You look right through me,
look right through me."

- Mad World, Tears For Fears



"Once you've met someone, you never really forget them."




"Some days I don’t even know what is real. Feeling numb. Empty thoughts. Transparent. I have love, I have friends, I have happiness. Where does it go for days on days? All life slowly trickles out of my body disappearing to the unknown. Cold and lifeless, yet life continues on."




"I won’t justify the way I live my life."
- Riptide, Sick Puppies




"And there's no blame,
for how our love did slowly fade.
And now it's gone,
it's like it wasn't there at all."

- Title and Registration, Death Cab For Cutie



"I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all, I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing."
- Agatha Christie



"Girls get a lot of mixed messages—they are told, ‘Girl Power!’ and what does that mean? It means you wear a T-shirt that says, ‘Girl Power!’ but you call each other bitches. You make fun of a girl for being a virgin and you make fun of a girl for having sex. There’s no right place to be."
- Tina Fey




"I think I speak for all of us when I say we're lazy and incompetent."

- Nathan Young, Misfits



"We're all misinformed, we are Alice,
in Wonderland,
with skinny wrists and stories to tell.
We're the person we accept, and
we never really figure out who we are.
I am, a fractured bone, not broken -

imperfect, demented and sore.
I lay in blankets,
in recovery,
in confusion,
inspired."




"Don't ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody."

- The Catcher In The Rye, J.D. Salinger



"You have to trust people or you’ll end up bloody lonely."
- Emma Watson



"I don't know how to love you."




"Memory is always infinitely more beautiful than reality."




"Two people together will always be: one plus one."



"I make friends, then suddenly I can't bear to be with any of them."



"Shyness is nice and shyness can stop you from doing all the things in life you'd like to."



"I'd never be embarrassed to be seen with you."
- Simon Bellamy, Misfits



"People, what a bunch of bastards!"
- Roy, The IT Crowd



"Human beings are funny. They long to be with the person they love but refuse to admit openly. Some are afraid to show even the slightest sign of affection because of fear. Fear that their feelings may not be recognized, or even worst, returned. But one thing about human beings puzzles me the most is their conscious effort to be connected with the object of their affection even if it kills them slowly within."

- Sigmund Freud



"Then it hit me. I'm not going to be famous. I won't get to be a rock star. I am going to be stuck on the payroll, doing work that doesn't interest me, for a very long time."



"She read about people she could never be."
- Pushing Daisies



"You are consumed. You are the product of television."



"What is simple in the moonlight, by the morning never is."

- Lua, Bright Eyes



"Shut your mouth,
how can you say,
I go about things the wrong way?

I am human,
and I need to be loved,
just like everybody else does."
- How Soon Is Now?,
The Smiths




"You never know how strong you are, until being strong is the only choice you have."



"I'm too young to feel this old."

- Cold Desert, Kings Of Leon



"All you want is a place to lay your head.
You go to sleep dreaming how you would,
be a different kind if you thought you could,
but you come awake the way you are instead.
"

- All My Friends, Counting Crows



"I'll sit and wonder,
of every love that could have been,
if only I'd thought of something charming to say."

- The Sound Of Settling, Death Cab For Cutie


"Never pick sides,
don’t choose between two.
Well I just wanted you,
I just wanted you.
"

- I Think UR A Contra, Vampire Weekend



"For the first time in a while, she was truly happy. Then she remembered, she was drunk."




"We live our lives in anticipation of the next hit of experience as if the one that’s coming will finally do it for us. What’s so strange is that nothing up ‘til now has brought that sense of real completion or fulfillment. So why are we so seduced into thinking that the next one will?"
- Joseph Goldstein



"Somewhere along the way you lost sight of who you are."



"Don't let anyone, ever, make you feel like you don't deserve what you want."



"Why were you unhappy?"
"Well, there were a lot of reasons. Mainly, though, I fell in love with someone who didn't love me back."

- Little Miss Sunshine
