“That's the pathetic thing about high school. Everyone tries so hard to be something they aren't. It's gotten so I don't know who I am, so how can I even try to be who I am, much less who I'm not?
My problem is that I don't even fit in with the misfits.

Katie Alender, Bad Girls Don't Die

“Just say something real. Everyone just always tries so hard, and it all comes out the same. I just want someone to say something real.”
Katie Alender, Bad Girls Don't Die

“Oh." He sat in confused silence for a few seconds. "Can I ask you a very serious question?"
"I rather you didn't," I said.
He stared straight into my eyes. "If you were an animal, what animal would you be?"
WAIT, WHAT? "Wait, what?"
"It's a classic icebreaker."
"If I were an ANIMAL...?"
He faked a sigh and checked an imaginary watch. "Your inability to answer the question doesn't bode well for-"
"I refuse to answer that," I said. "On the grounds that it's probably the stupidest thing I've ever been asked."

“O may I join the choir invisible
Of those immortal dead who live again
In minds made better by their presence; live
In pulses stirred to generosity,
In deeds of daring rectitude...”
George Eliot, O May I Join the Choir Invisible! And Other Favourite Poems

“Keep true. Never be ashamed of doing right. Decide what you think is right and stick to it.”
George Eliot

“Mrs Draper took this as an order for her departure, and crept silently out of the room, closing the door behind her with the long protracted elaborate click which is always produced by an attempt at silence on such occasions.”
Anthony Trollope, The Last Chronicle of Barset

“You shall be my pet, and my poppet, and my dearest little duck all the days of your life.”
Anthony Trollope, Can You Forgive Her?

There are at least two people in this world that would die for you

You mean the world to someone.

Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.

When you make the biggest mistake ever,
something good comes from it.

When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look.

Always remember the compliments you've received.

Forget the rude remarks.

So if you are a loving friend, send this to everyone on your list including the person that sent it to you.
Tonight, at midnight your true love will realize they like you.

Something good will happen to you between 12 in the morning and four o'clock pm tomorrow, it could be anywhere . Get ready for the biggest shock of your life

If you break this chain YOU will be cursed with relationship problems for the next ten years. Send this to fifteen people in fifteen minutes !!
