Note: these are NOT written by me... I've collected these so long in some cases I'm not sure where they come from.. Many come from books I've read (like Laurell K. Hamilton) if you send me the quote the chances are I can tell you the book it's from... But in some cases I just don't know who wrote it...
This is my Quote Collection
"I did not stop speaking to my people, they stopped listening to me, and after a time, they could no longer hear my voice. But I never stopped speaking to them. In dreams, or that moment between waking and sleep, there is my voice. In a song, the touch of another's hand in theirs, I am there. I am Goddess, I am everywhere, and in everything. I cannot leave, nor can you lose me. But you can leave me, and you can turn your back on me."
"It is not merely happiness we all seek. We seek some place where we belong. For the lucky few, we find it in childhood with our own families. But for most of us we spend our adult lives seeking that place or person or organization that makes us feel that we are important, that we matter, and that without us something would go undone and undoable. We all need to feel that we are irreplaceable."
"People talk of sorrow as if it is soft, a thing of water and tears. But true sorrow is not soft. True sorrow is a thing of fire, and rock. It burns your heart, crushes your soul under the weight of mountains. It destroys, and even if you keep breathing, keep going, you die. The person you were moments ago dies, dies in the sound of screaming. Gone. Everything solid, everything real, is gone. It doesn't come back. The world is forever fractured, so that you walk on the crust of an earth where you can always feel the heat under you, the press of lava, that is so hot it can burn flesh, melt bone, and the very air is poisonous. To survive, you swallow the heat. To keep from falling through and dying for real, you swallow all that hate. You push it down inside you, into that fresh grave that is all that is left of what you thought the world would be."
"She needed to awaken on her own and discover all her bits and pieces--to find out what glue holds her together, or binds us all together. We are all jigsaw people, after all, aren't we? Scattered and shattered, perplexed and puzzled beyond hope or hopelessness. But she--she will suprise us all. She will remember what tore us apart. She will remember past knowing. I'm certain of it.
So I covered her up, careful not to brush a bit of her skin, and then I sat nearby, chewing my fingernails, and waited for her next coming."
"She watched the way he savored her touch as he rubbed his bristled chin against her palm. The tickle made her instantly hot and aching. Until today, she'd never realized just how lonely she'd been. How much she wanted to be held by someone. No, not someone. Him. A hint of a smile curled his lips as he moved closer to her to place the faintest, softest kiss on her lips. His fangs scraped her bottom lip ever so gently. The mark of a true predator. When they'd been married, they'd had no fangs. No craving for blood... They'd just been two kids in love."
"War in the abstract is a confusing thing.
War on the ground, in the middle of a battle, is not.
When someone shoots at you, they are your enemy, and you shoot back.
When someone tries to kill you, they are your enemy, and you try to kill them first.
War is complicated, battle is not."
"I kissed Doyle first, and he had to bend down to help me do it, then I kissed Rhys. He looked at me, and there was sadness on his face. But it was not a sadness that I could fix. I could only kiss him gently on the lips, and let him know that I saw and appreciated him, but nothing either of us could do would make me love him the way I loved Doyle or Frost. That it pained him pained me, but not enough to change it."
"I did not become one of the greatest killers of our court because I didn't enjoy my job."
I thought about that as he held me in the curve of his body. I thought about him enjoying the killing. I didn't like the thought much, but if he was a sociopathic killer, then he was my sociopathic killer. And I'd let him slaughter them both if it would save us. No, more then that, I knew eventually Cel and Siobhan had to die for me and mine to live."
"You would think being a real live faerie princess would make your life fairy-tale-like, but fairy tales only end well. While the story is going on, horrible things happen. Remember Rapunzel? Her prince got his eyes scratched out by the witch, which blinded him. At the end of the story, Rapunzel's tears magically restored his sight, but that was at the end of the story. Cinderella was little better than a slave. Snow White was actually nearly killed four different times by the evil queen. All anyone remembers is the poisoned apple, but don't forget the huntsman, or the enchanted girdle and the poisoned comb. Pick any fairy tale that's based on older stories, and the heroine of the piece has a miserable, dangerous, nightmarish time of it."
"The happy-ever-after ending, if it's coming at all, seems a very long way away tonight."

"I kneel at my alter and pray. I pray for guidance, and I pray for luck, good luck. Some people will wish someone luck, but they don't say which kind.

"We walked timeless across the forests and deserts and jungles and plains. We walked the Earth. Blessed the Earth. Were blessed by her. I held out my hand and all the people climbed onto me. Ate from me. Blessed me. Blessed themselves. Made love. Food. Babies. All was scared. I lay down on the Earth and was the Earth. I was alive with all that was scared. Which was all. I remembered it all. All my lives. All life. That was my gift: Memory. Memory. All of those people, all their lives, were in me. Were me. I was more than the sum of my parts, but no less: Gods-are-us. God us. Goddess. Me." '
"Be gone from me, oh mortals who are pure of heart. Be gone from my thoughts, oh souls that dream great dreams. Be gone from me, all the hymns of glory. I am a magnet for the damned.

"The blood that teaches life will not teach lies, and love becomes again my reprimand, my goad, my song."
"Yvaine: You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn’t true. I know a lot about love. I’ve seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain, lies, hate… It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But when I see the way that mankind loves… You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and… What I’m trying to say, is… I think I love you. Is this love? I never imagined I’d know it for myself. My heart… It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it’s trying to escape because it doesn’t belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I’d wish for nothing in exchange - no gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine."

I'm the girl your mom warned you about
damn right, it's better then yours
No one means all he says, and yet very few say all they mean, for words are slippery and thought is vicious.
When beggars and shoeshine boys, barbers and beauticians can tell you how to get rich it is time to remind yourself that there is no more dangerous illusion than the belief that one can get something for nothing.
"In America, if you put your mind to it you can have anything you want. You just can't have everything you want."
To have the power to forgive,
Is empire and prerogative,
And 'tis in crowns a nobler gem,
To grant a pardon than condemn.
I never wanted to get married. The last thing I wanted was infinite security and to be the place an arrow shoots off from. I wanted change and excitement and to shoot off in all directions myself, like the colored arrows from a Fourth of July rocket.
You talk about capitalism and communism and all that sort of thing, but the important thing is the struggle everybody is engaged in to get better living conditions, and they are not interested too much in the form of government.
There’s always a struggle, a striving for something bigger than yourself in all forms of art. And even if you didn’t achieve greatness — even if you fail, which we all must — everything you do in your work is somehow connected with your attitude toward life, your deepest secret feelings.
Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.
Take me, I am the drug; take me, I am hallucinogenic.
I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.
Doing business without advertising is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you are doing, but nobody else does.

"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars -- points of light and reason. . . . And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see the stars anymore. And there was no reason for anything."
"It was a crippling thing, this sensation that a huge hole had been punched through my chest, excising my most vital organs and leaving ragged, unhealed gashes around the edges that continues to throb and bleed despite the passage of time. Rationally, I knew my lungs must still be intact, yet I gasped for air and my head spun like my efforts yielded me nothing. My heart must have been beating, too, but I couldn't hear the sound of my pulse in my ears; my hands felt blue with cold. I curled inward, hugging my ribs to hold myself together. I scrambled for my numbness, my denial, but it evaded me.
And yet, I found I could survive. I was alert, I felt the pain -- the aching loss that ratiated out from my chest, sending wracking waves of hurt through my limbs and head -- but it was manageable. I could live through it. It didn't feel like the pain had weakened over time, rather that I had grown strong enough to bear it."
"What was the point of going any further? Nothing lingered here. Nothing more than the memories that I could have called back whenever I wanted to, if I was ever willing to endure the corresponding pain -- the pain that had me now, had me cold. There was nothing special about this place without HIM. I wasn't sure what I'd hoped to find here, but the meadow was empty of atmosphere, empty of everything, just like everywhere else. Just like my nightmares."
"No, I wasn't at a stripclub... I was out hunting unicorns, that's why there is glitter all over me."

"There was an invisible cord binding us together. In the midst of a crowded room, I always knew where she was. If I closed my eyes and listened hard, I could almost feel her heart beating, drawing mine as inexorably as a lodestone draws iron. I could make it quicken with a single whispered word in her ear and watch the pulse beat faster in the hollow of her throat.

"She walks in beauty, like the night / Of cloudless climbs and starry skies; / And all that's best of dark and bright / Meet in her aspect and her eyes,"
"I hoped that he would love me, / And he has kissed my mouth, / But I am like a stricken bird / That cannot reach the south. // For though I know he loves me, / To-night my heart is sad; / His kiss was not so wonderful / As all the dreams I had."
"She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade more, one ray less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling place.
And on that cheek, and o'er that brow
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!"
It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination."
"The Book: The Encyclopedia Galactica, in its chapter on Love states that it is far too complicated to define. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has this to say on the subject of love: Avoid, if at all possible. Unfortunately, Arthur Dent has never read the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."
"The Book: Curiously the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias, as it fell, was, 'Oh no, not again.' Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly *why* the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now."
Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned.
Being a sex symbol is a heavy load to carry, especially when one is tired, hurt and bewildered.
The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized - never knowing.
Two things scare me. The first is getting hurt. But that's not nearly as scary as the second, which is losing.
Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness.
One enemy can do more hurt than ten friends can do good.
Play fair. Don't hit people. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
Accept that all of us can be hurt, that all of us can and surely will at times fail. Other vulnerabilities, like being embarrassed or risking love, can be terrifying, too. I think we should follow a simple rule: if we can take the worst, take the risk.
Have you ever been hurt and the place tries to heal a bit, and you just pull the scar off of it over and over again.
I want people to love me, but it's not going to hurt me if they don't.
It's always funny until someone gets hurt. Then it's just hilarious.
Love's an excuse to get hurt.
Most chick singers say 'if you hurt me, I'll die'... I say, 'if you hurt me, I'll kick your ass.'
Your weak point is the open, vulnerable place where you can always be hurt. Love, in all its aspects, opens the self so fully.
Because artists can be extremely eccentric and insane, and unfortunately, the people they hurt the most are the people that are closest to them.
Maynard James Keenan
Everyone makes a greater effort to hurt other people than to help himself.
All love shifts and changes. I don't know if you can be wholeheartedly in love all the time.
For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.
If you press me to say why I loved him, I can say no more than because he was he, and I was I.
Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love.
Nothing is miserable unless you think it is so.
If you don't think every day is a good day, just try missing one.
In heaven, all the interesting people are missing.
Sometimes, only one person is missing, and the whole world seems depopulated.
The Bermuda Triangle got tired of warm weather. It moved to Alaska. Now Santa Claus is missing.
A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
It's the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter.
The betrayal of trust carries a heavy taboo.
“The mind is restless and difficult to restrain, but it is subdued by practice
“When you're away, I'm restless, lonely, Wretched, bored, dejected; only here's the rub, my darling dear, I feel the same when you're near”
Life isn't always smooth. If it were, we would never grow and develop as human beings. If we succeed we are envied; if we fail we are ridiculed and attacked. Sadly, this is how people are. Unexpected grief and suffering may lie ahead of you. But it is precisely then, when you encounter such trying times, that you must not be defeated. Never give up. Never retreat.
"doing the right thing starts at the beginning of the day, not after you've already done wrong."
"the only person who seemed to understand the correct ratio of topping to fruit, which was three to one."
“We have three kinds of family. Those we are born to, those who are born to us, and those we let into our hearts.”
“I accept you as you are, and I will always hold you close in my heart. I will walk beside you forever.”
"You can't save everybody. In fact, there are days when I think you can't save anyone. Each person has to save himself first, then you can move in and help. I have found this philosophy does not work well during a gun battle, or a knife fight either. Outside of that it works just fine."
"I stepped into the bar and was momentarily blind, waiting for my eyes to adjust to the dimness. Like one of those old westerns where the good guy hesitates at the front of the bar and views the crowd. I suspected he wasn't looking for the bad guy at all. He had just come out of the sun and couldn't see shit. No one ever shoots you while you're waiting for your eyes to adjust. I wonder why?"
"Love sucks. Sometimes it feels good. Sometimes it's just another way to bleed."
"No one can embrass you unless you let them"
"Why is it when you have a sure thing to bet on, there's never anyone around to take your money?"
"They both hated me for being things that I could not change: one for an innate God-given talent, and the other because I was a woman. Funny, how one unreasoning hatred looks so much like another."
"The Greeks believed that once there were no male and female, that all souls were one. Then the souls were torn apart, male and female. The Greeks thought that when you found the other half of your soul, your soul mate, that it would be your perfect lover. But I think if you find your other half, you would be too much alike to be lovers, but you would still be soul mates."
"I smiled sweetly and thought, fuck you, too. But I'd learned lately to lie even with my eyes. It was almost sad that I could lie with my eyes. They really are the mirror to the soul, and once they go, you are damaged. Not beyond repair, but damaged."
"He held his hand out to me. I hesitated, then, slowly, I took it. Our fingers interlaced, and we walked together hand-in-hand down the road, and it felt good, and right, like I'd found a piece of myself that was missing."
"Somehow I think trophy wives wear more makeup and less cutlery. But, hey, I haven't ever met a trophy wife, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they know what I know, that the true way to a man's heart is six inches of metal between his ribs. Sometimes four inches will do the job, but to be really sure, I like to have six. Funny how phallic objects are always more useful the bigger they are. Anyone who tells you size doesn't matter has been seeing too many small knives."
"The wide sidewalk stretched empty, almost golden, in the early morning light. If I'd had time for coffee, I might even have said it was pretty, but I hadn't had time for coffee, so the sunlight was just bright."
"Sometimes you deal with the devil not because you want to, but because if you don't, someone else will."
"It's been my experience that if a man is interested in having sex with you, they hesitate to kill you before they've had the sex. This rule is not always true, but more often than not. The trick is to get the man thinking more about sex than violence, so he's a little confused."
"Feeling bad sucks, and nausea is one of the great evils of the universe."
"sometimes you need your friends to pry, and sometimes you need them to leave you the fuck alone."
"Trouble was, I was no one’s prince, and no one’s princess. I was just me, and I was all out of armor, shiny or otherwise. I just wasn’t the fairy-tale type. And I didn’t believe in happily ever after. The question was, did I believe in happily for now?"
"Being naked isn’t a sin, it’s the way God sends us into the world, how bad can it be?”
"Why do you care what look I have in my eyes?" "Because the wound cuts both ways."
"I pushed the jealousy away. It wasn't who we were. There was enough love, enough sex, enough for everyone. When there's enough, you don't have to be jealous of anyone."
"That was what real love was. The ability to put someone else's happiness above your own no matter how much it killed you to do so."
"sometimes what we wish and what life offers are two completely different things."
“We all have our dreams and desires, and fate doesn’t always deliver.”
