    Pete Wentz
    “Girls are like apples...the best ones are at the top of the trees. The boys don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples that are on the ground that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think there is something wrong with them, when, in reality, they are amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree...”

    W.B. Yeats
    “Never give all the heart, for love
    Will hardly seem worth thinking of
    To passionate women if it seem
    Certain, and they never dream
    That it fades out from kiss to kiss;
    For everything that's lovely is
    But a brief, dreamy, kind delight.
    O Never give the heart outright,
    For they, for all smooth lips can say,
    Have given their hearts up to the play.
    And who could play it well enough
    If deaf and dumb and blind with love?
    He that made this knows all the cost,
    For he gave all his heart and lost.”
    W.B. Yeats, In the Seven Woods: Being Poems Chiefly of the Irish Heroic Age

    Langston Hughes

    What happens to a dream deferred?

    Does it dry up
    like a raisin in the sun?
    Or fester like a sore--
    And then run?
    Does it stink like rotten meat?
    Or crust and sugar over--
    like a syrupy sweet?

    Maybe it just sags
    like a heavy load.

    Or does it explode?”
    Langston Hughes, The Collected Poems

    Cassandra Clare, City of Ashes

    Marilyn Monroe
    “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
    Marilyn Monroe

    “Here's to the kids.

    The kids who would rather spend their night with a bottle of coke & Patrick or Sonny playing on their headphones than go to some vomit-stained high school party.
    Here's to the kids whose 11:11 wish was wasted on one person who will never be there for them.
    Here's to the kids whose idea of a good night is sitting on the hood of a car, watching the stars.
    Here's to the kids who never were too good at life, but still were wicked cool.
    Here's to the kids who listened to Fall Out boy and Hawthorne Heights before they were on MTV...and blame MTV for ruining their life.
    Here's to the kids who care more about the music than the haircuts.
    Here's to the kids who have crushes on a stupid lush.
    Here's to the kids who hum "A Little Less 16 Candles, A Little More Touch Me" when they're stuck home, dateless, on a Saturday night.
    Here's to the kids who have ever had a broken heart from someone who didn't even know they existed.
    Here's to the kids who have read The Perks of Being a Wallflower & didn't feel so alone after doing so.
    Here's to the kids who spend their days in photobooths with their best friend(s).
    Here's to the kids who are straight up smartasses & just don't care.
    Here's to the kids who speak their mind.
    Here's to the kids who consider screamo their lullaby for going to sleep.
    Here's to the kids who second guess themselves on everything they do.
    Here's to the kids who will never have 100 percent confidence in anything they do, and to the kids who are okay with that.
    Here's to the kids.
    This one's not for the kids,
    who always get what they want,
    But for the ones who never had it at all.
    It's not for the ones who never got caught,
    But for the ones who always try and fall.
    This one's for the kids who didnt make it,
    We were the kids who never made it.
    The Overcast girls and the Underdog Boys.
    Not for the kids who had all their joys.
    This one's for the kids who never faked it.
    We're the kids who didn't make it.
    They say "Breaking hearts is what we do best,"
    And, "We'll make your heart be ripped of your chest"
    The only heart that I broke was mine,
    When I got My Hopes up too too high.
    We were the kids who didnt make it.
    We are the kids who never made it.”
    Pete Wentz

    “The desirable virgin is sexy but not sexual. She's young, white, and skinny. She's a cheerleader, a babysitter; she's accessible and eager to please (remember those ethics of passivity!). She's never a woman of color. SHe's never a low-income girl or a fat girl. She's never disabled. "Virgin" is a designation for those who meet a certain standard of what women, especially young women, are supposed to look like. As for how these young women are supposed to act? A blank slate is best.”
    Jessica Valenti, The Purity Myth: How America's Obsession with Virginity is Hurting Young Women
