random post - 100 graphics & 25 quotes! :)
When I see you again, I'll have to pretend like I don't want to be your everything, and that I don't want you to be mine. I'll have to smile and pretend like I'm fine, even though you'll see right through that. Problem is, I don't want you to know how much this is hurting me. I don't want you to be concerned for me because I think I need to do this on my own this time.
Never let your ego get so close to your position that when your position goes, your ego goes with it.
+ Colin Powell
I think that you are beautiful, I just thought I'd say.
Have you never noticed that he's not the one who makes her strong? Her friends are the ones who make her strong when he makes her weak.
You've got me buying candy hearts instead of jelly snakes.
I want to hate you, I want to feel like there is no one in this world that I despise more than you and there is no one that I would rather see being hit by a bus. But all I can feel is pain and regret, and despite all of that: I want you back more than anything else in the world right now.
I believe we make our own luck. It is not down to fate. It is down to our individual actions and choices.
Did you tell her she's your second choice? Cause I wouldn't be your little toy. Ain't no man inside her lucky boy. I guess you finally found someone who's everything that I couldn't be. I just couldn't see myself as Mrs. You Can Walk All Over Me. So tell me, who's the lucky girl? I guess you finally found someone who's everything that I couldn't be.
So please try not to hate me. I am a flawed human being - a far more flawed human being than you realize. Which is precisely why I do not want you to hate me. Because if you were to do that, I would really go to pieces. I can't do what you do: I can't slip inside my shell and wait for things to pass.
Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a child-hood summer beside a lake in the mountains; another, a moon-lit beach; a third, a family dinner of pot roast and sweet potatoes during a myrtle-mad august in a mid-western town. Smells denote softly in our memory like poignant land mines hidden under the weedy mass of years. They hit a tripwire of smell and memories explode all at once. A complex vision leaps out of the undergrowth.
We all make resolutions – promises to ourselves – but very few of us actually keep them. We all say that we will change for the better, but how many of us really do? We all agree that everyone needs to work together, but we all fight for the spotlight. In the end, how many of us really do that – how many of us really fight for what we believe in?
Your smile is so cute. It's even cuter when you fight it.
You chose to surrender the best thing that's happened to you.
There's a lot I don't understand. But I do know it's important to keep fighting. I learned that from you. We never win. Never will. That's not why we fight. We do it because there's things worth fighting for.
+ Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Sometimes I wonder if maybe we'll ever get back together, and then I realize that we'll never really be over, in a way it hasn't changed, but in some ways, it has, it's not that we aren't meant for each other, I think it's just maybe we aren't ready for forever.
I can't remember the last thing you said as you were leaving. Now the days go by so fast.
Just shut up, okay? I'm allowed to dislike somebody who hurt me. I'm allowed to say what I want, laugh how I want, do what I want, be who I want - this is my life. And if you don't like it then there's something wrong with yours, not mine.
You thought you had it made, like the songs would write themselves. But your words ran out of ink and your fingers lost the chords.
God will never take anything away from you without giving you something so much better.
We're just afraid, period. Our fear is free floating. We're afraid this isn't the right relationship, or we're afraid it is. We're afraid they won't like us, or we're afraid they will. We're afraid of failure or we're afraid of success. We're afraid of dying young or growing old. We're more afraid of life than we are death.
You should always say yes to your happiness even if it means saying no to someone else.
Would it be out of line if I told you I missed you?
You have so much magic in you, and I wouldn't dare hold that back.
You fall truly in love once. Other emotions are just products of attraction.
I love him, I still want him. But if he doesn't want to play the game, I should stop expecting him to be the prize.
