'He did, however, enjoy sitting on a park bench and gazing at the tall, slender Parisiennes in their sheer silk stockings. He effected an air of knowing sophistication. Yet when he actually managed to meet a girl his own age, he lost all ability to talk to her...not daring to think profane thoughts about the women he saw the street, Lev decided their silken legs reminded him of the slender prayer towers of Istanbul.' The Orientalist.

'The Orient's dry intoxication comes from the desert, where hot wind and hot sand make men drunk, where the world is simple and without problems. The woods are full of questions. Only the desert does not ask, does not give, and does not promise anything...the desert man...has but one face, and knows but one truth, and that truth fulfills him. The woodsman has many faces.' Ali & Nino.

'A cigarette is the perfect type of pleasure. It is exquisite, and leaves one unsatisfied. What more could you want?' Picture of Dorian Gray.

'The kiss by which all others shall be judged and found wanting.' Hearts in Atlantis (film version)

“I meant to end it like this. When the Inquisitor ceased speaking he waited some time for his Prisoner to answer him. His silence weighed down upon him. He saw that the Prisoner had listened intently all the time, looking gently in his face and evidently not wishing to reply. The old man longed for Him to say something, however bitter and terrible. But He suddenly approached the old man in silence and softly kissed him on his bloodless aged lips. That was all his answer. The old man shuddered. His lips moved. He went to the door, opened it, and said to Him: ‘Go, and come no more...come not at all, never, never!’ And he let Him out into the dark alleys of the town. The Prisoner went away.”
“And the old man?”
“The kiss glows in his heart, but the old man adheres to his idea.”
“And you with him, you too?” cried Alyosha, mournfully.
Ivan laughed.
“Why, it’s all nonsense, Alyosha. It’s only a senseless poem of a senseless student, who could never write two lines of verse. Why do you take it so seriously? Surely you don’t suppose I am going straight off to the Jesuits, to join the men who are improving upon His work? Good Lord, it’s no business of mine. I told you, all I want is to live on to thirty, and then...dash the cup to the ground!”
“But the little sticky leaves, and the precious tombs, and the blue sky, and the woman you love! How will you live, how will you love them?” Alyosha cried sorrowfully. “With such a hell in your heart and your head, how can you? No, that’s just what you are going away for, to join them…if not, you will kill yourself, you can’t endure it!”
“There is a strength to endure everything,” Ivan said with a cold smile.
“What strength?”
“The strength of the Karamazovs--the strength of the Karamazov baseness.”
“To sink into debauchery, to stifle your soul with corruption, yes?”
“Possibly even that...only perhaps till I am thirty I shall escape it, and then.”
“How will you escape it? By what will you escape it? That’s impossible with your ideas.”
“In the Karamazov way, again.”
“ That all things are permitted, is that it?”
Ivan scowled, and all at once turned strangely pale.
“Ah, you’ve caught up yesterday’s phrase, which so offended Miusov--and which Dmitri pounced upon so naively and paraphrased!” he smiled queerly. “Yes, if you like. I won’t deny it.”
Alyosha looked at him in silence.
“I thought that going away from here I have you at least,” Ivan said suddenly, with unexpected feeling; “but now I see that there is no place for me even in your heart. The formula, ‘all things are permitted,’ I won’t renounce--but you will you renounce me for it.”
Alyosha got up, went to him and softly kissed him on the lips.
“Plagiarism!” cried Ivan, in a transport of delight.


I'd quote some more Dostoyevsky, but I don't have him offhand and I would never dare improvise him.

Dear God, If it would be ok, could I please have another heart? Mine has been broken up, stitched back together, mangled, used, broken, torn, ripped and left lifeless too many times to count. I know it's asking a lot but I think, in the end, with a new heart, I could do no wrong. love, Me Collapse )

[ mood | crappy ]

here`s some -dawson`s creek- quotes i found. =)
<3 Gabbie ... __ x0ox



"I'm sitting here with my best friend and my palms are sweating." -Dawson

*"If you can't understand why we can't be just friends. If you can't understand that...then you don't understand me at all." -Dawson

*"Ever have one of those days you wish you could start all over again?" -Dawson's Creek

*"I understand. I'm tired of understanding. All I do is understand." -Dawson's Creek

*"We can't talk like we used to. There's just some things we can't say." -Dawson's Creek

*"I looked at him and he looked at me and for that split second it was like we forgave each other for everything." -Joey

*"You wanted a kiss. Is that what you want? Are you prepared for everything that comes with that kiss? Cause it doesn't end with a fade out. There are reprocussions. Hearts get broken. Friendships get ruined. Your entire life could fall apart because of one kiss. That's what you have to look forward to. Do yourself a big favor. Don't rush it." -Dawson's Creek

*"I don't believe in perfect love, but I do believe that there are people whos lives are interwined. Who have a bond that lasts forever. That can never be broken, and she needs you now man. You're the only one that knows her whole history. You're the only one who knows what she's going through." -Jack

*"You're probably right...I'm sure I don't have any idea what you're going through. How hard it is to let someone go. How painful it must be to know that as right as you two are for each other...doesn't mean you're right for each other now. I wouldn't know a thing about that. About how it makes you want to scream, or hit someone...or cry." -Dawson's Creek

*"How can you simply be friends with someone when everytime you look at them all you think about is how much more you really want them?" -Dawson

*"This guy didn't know you. I don't care how you felt about him. He didn't know you because if he did, he never would have walked away from you." -Pacey

*"Just because we don't say certain things doesn't mean we don't feel them." -Dawson's Creek

*"So, how do you date one guy while you're still in love with another?" - Dawson's Creek

*"Letting go isn't a one time thing, it's something you do everyday, over and over again." -Dawson's Creek

*"It's tearing me up on the inside to have these feelings for you, but I can't get rid of them." -Pacey

*"If we are truly meant to be, then we will find our way back to each other. It's as simple as that." -Dawson

*"I'd like to tell todays youth that no matter where life takes you...big cities, small towns, you'll eventually come across small minds, people who think they are better than you are. People who think that material things or being pretty or popular automatically makes you a worthwhile human being. I'd like to tell todays youth that none of these things matter, unless you have a strength of character, integrity, sense of pride, and if you're lucky to have any of these things don't ever sell out. So when you meet a person for the first time, please don't judge them by their station in life. Cause who knows...that person might end up being your best friend." -Joey

"No matter where you are, no matter where your life may take you, and no matter who you're with, you'll always have a piece of my heart." -Dawson's Creek"When a girl hates you the way she hates you, it really means that she likes you. That's basic kindergarden psychology." -Dawson's Creek

"I have always believed in you. I mean you're the most extraordinary talented person that I've ever met. I'm your biggest fan." -Joey (Dawson's Creek)

"I just want you to know that if you ever need me I'll always be here for you and all you ever have to do is ask." -Dawson

"Just because we don't say certain things, doesn't mean we don't feel them." -Dawson's Creek

"You're born and you die and you make a lot of mistakes in between." -Dawson's Creek

"I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing." -Dawson's Creek

[ mood | crushed ]

heyy i just joined, my name is Gabbie nd i`m 15.. i don`t kn0w if i`m allowed to request anything, but i was wondering if anyone had any quotes on liking one of your guys friends that you`re really close to nd he keeps giving you mixed signals, nd even th0 he has a g/f he styll tries to get wid you nd all that .. any quotes relating to that would be greatly appreciated =) thanks

and here`s a few quotes for now .. i`ll post more later.. x0


you can close your eyes to the things
that you don't want to see, but you
can't close your heart to the things
you don't want to feel..

What will u do when theres noone
to fall back on? i wont be there,
i've learned my lesson ........

His "Happily Ever After"
was her worst nightmare...

I admit that I'm just a fool for you..

This is my depressed stance. When you’re depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you’ll start to feel better. If you’re going to get any joy out of being depressed, you’ve got to stand like this. -Charlie Brown

"We're all damaged in our own way. Nobody's perfect. I think we are all somewhat screwy, every single one of us."-Johnny Depp

I’ve learned that guys make the best friends, my best friend is a guy and I can tell him anything...oh except for the fact that I’m absolutely crazy for him...I always seem to leave that part out of the conversation.

The vast majority of this poem was written at 5:30 this morning. It is the first poem I've written for months. So forgive me.

A Friend
Rapture. It captured the commodities of a city apartment
How strangely, with such tedious discretion
I found you drowsy, by the futile attempts to overthrow
Manhattan order

Bare-handed, as an arid beast
I offered you an invite, and as you took the offer
I span feverishly, with a grin double my frame
As philosophic thoughts flew instantaneously

I tried to separate myself from the feeling
But there were no longer two of us
As this and self were vivid as the universal rainbow
From which we became colors of wayward stars

But you were never there
And you were never here to listen
And you were murdered, but I still prayed to recover you
With a Nazi tongue of gold
..live a dream within a dream.

These were kinder times
Perhaps before any idealist
Couldn't have identified importance in fate
Not that it counts
--------This was before infinity even existed.

And once again
Was it any sort of coherent struggle?
The bastards were mindfully insolent
For each word was like a rotten sore
--------A cold sore, not a cancerous, although I'd walken all over it.

Did illusiveness mold nothing?
Or was nothing overloaded
When the weight of a world
Was a weight on her shoulders
--------This couldn't be published a year ago.


I haven't written poetry forever. I used to be very serious about it. Please give me suggestions...it's important.

I want to hold hands and fly. To mold infinitely. I don’t want to wait ‘till another tomorrow. And I’m sick of replaying a yesterday.

The mix of sun and weekend love has shaped this current moment.

I’m not selfish or greedy or wild or ill-tempered. Perhaps I’m not an idealist. The irony is how I cannot find the strength for optimism. Just illogical prayers for change…

Baby sometimes
You act so perfect to me
You act sometimes like an angel
That's the part that hurts me most
Wonder if this is meant to be
No other love, gotta stop loving you

Sunrays and Saturdays"

Open the window
Let the sunset in
If only for the last time
Let me see you smile again

I'll take my records
You can have your books
I'm sorry I never read them
But it says so much about us

Always trying
To make love out of care
The perfect recipe
But something wasn't there

[Chorus:]
Sunrays and Saturdays
Perfect starry nights
Sweet dreams and moonbeams
And a love that's warm and bright
Sunrays and Saturdays
Friendship strong and true
Oceans of blue and a room with a view
To live the life you choose

You'll write me letters
I'll call you on the phone
A wire away from touching
And never quite alone

We'll get to know ourselves again
And we'll heal our hearts
It's not that we're bad together
We're just better off apart

Always trying
To have one and one make two
And even though it never worked
I still feel love for you
