Stephenie Meyer
“He's like a drug for you, Bella.”
Stephenie Meyer, Eclipse

Bell Hooks
“Genuine love is rarely an emotional space where needs are instantly gratified. To know love we have to invest time and commitment...'dreaming that love will save us, solve all our problems or provide a steady state of bliss or security only keeps us stuck in wishful fantasy, undermining the real power of the love -- which is to transform us.' Many people want love to function like a drug, giving them an immediate and sustained high. They want to do nothing, just passively receive the good feeling.”
Bell Hooks

Michael Thomas Ford
“I didn't realize there was a ranking." I said. "Sadie frowned. "What do you mean?" "A ranking," I said. "You know, what's crazier than what." "Oh, sure there is," Sadie said. She sat back in her chair. "First you have your generic depressives. They're a dime a dozen and usually pretty boring. Then you've got the bulimics and the anorexics. They're slightly more interesting, although usually they're just girls with nothing better to do. Then you start getting into the good stuff: the arsonists, the schizophrenics, the manic-depressives. You can never quite tell what those will do. And then you've got the junkies. They're completely tragic, because chances are they're just going to go right back on the stuff when they're out of here." "So junkies are at the top of the crazy chain," I said. Sadie shook her head. "Uh-uh," she said. "Suicides are." I looked at her. "Why?" "Anyone can be crazy," she answered. "That's usually just because there's something screwed up in your wiring, you know? But suicide is a whole different thing. I mean, how much do you have to hate yourself to want to just wipe yourself out?”
Michael Thomas Ford

Ed Sheeran
“It's too cold outside for angels to fly.”
Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran
“And they say
She's in the class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been that way since eighteen, but lately,
Her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us
Cos we're just under the upperhand
Go mad for a couple grams
And she don't want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly”
Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran
“It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
An angel will die
Covered in white
Closed eye
And hoping for a better life
This time, we'll fade out tonight
Straight down the line”
Ed Sheeran

“Every time I draw a clean breath, I'm like a fish out of water.”
Narcotics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous

Ke$ha, Ke$ha: Animal: Piano/Vocal/Guitar

Sebastian Marincolo
“The movie Koyaanisqatsi shows non-commented time-lapse footage and focuses our attention on the very rhythm of our civilized modern life and nature. A marijuana high can do something for a user similar to what this time-lapse footage does. The enhancement of episodic memory and the acceleration of associative streams of memories can alter and enhance our recognition of patterns in our lives in various ways. If we are presented with quick associative chains of past experiences, we can see a pattern in a body of information that is usually not at once presented to our “inner eye” as such.”
Sebastian Marincolo

Cameron Conaway
“In other words, I tasted a different drug. A drug called progress.”
Cameron Conaway, Caged: Memoirs of a Cage-Fighting Poet

Billy Joel
“She always says I'm the best friend that she's ever had... how do you hang up on someone who needs you that bad? ~From 'Laura' on The Nylon Curtain”
Billy Joel

Nenia Campbell
“People say hate is like a poison — but they're wrong. It's like a drug. You never forget your first hit, how it seduces you with its strength and power, and takes you completely by storm. It colors your world in light and meaning, until you wonder how you ever managed to get by without it. And then, eventually, you get to a point where you can't. It takes over your life, until hating becomes your reason for living.”
Nenia Campbell, Cease and Desist

Crystal Woods
“Love is the best drug, bar none.”
Crystal Woods, Write like no one is reading 2

Sarah Waters
“She shook her head, and closed her eyes. I felt her weariness then, and with it, my own. I felt it dark and heavy upon me, darker and heavier than any drug they ever gave me - it seemed heavy as death. I looked at the bed. I have seemed to see our kisses there sometimes, I've seen them hanging in the curtains, like bats, ready to swoop. Now, I thought, I might jolt the post and they would only fall, and shatter, and turn to powder.”
Sarah Waters, Affinity

“According to their adoptive parents, children who are prenatally exposed to drugs appear to function very much like other adopted children on educational attainment and emotional or behavioral adjustment.”
Richard p. Barth, Madelyn Freundlich, and David Brodzinsky

Jennifer Arnett
“He'd done this hundreds of times: done a job, been drugged with a narcotic that erased his short term memory, and dumped in a seedy hole in the wall locale, where when he climbed out, he would have to figure out where he was, find a payphone, and call in for his next job.”
Jennifer Arnett, Agent Chandler, Retired: A short story

al-Hasan al-Basri
“Znanje je bolje od nasljedstva; odgoj je najčistiji obraz; pobožnost je najsigurnija opskrba; ibadet je najbolja zarada; razum je najbolji vodič; lijepo ponašanje najbolji je drug; blagost je najbolji pomoćnik; zadovoljstvo je najveće bogatstvo; Allahova pomoć je najbolja pomoć; a sjećanje na smrt najbolji je propovjednik.”
al-Hasan al-Basri, Čujem šum, prijatelja ne vidim

Juan Filloy
“Skepticism was a drug for him. Life's vicissitudes had taught him never to be caught without it. A most useful drug, it magically invigorated his heart, transforming opprobrium into piety and ignominy into tolerance.”
Juan Filloy, Op Oloop

Steven Magee
“Over the years I have come to understand three things about the police: 1) They cover up virtually everything involving a police officer. 2) They will not enforce the laws for people that they do not like. 3) They will target people that they do not like for prosecution using various techniques that include unwarranted stops, drug testing, faked police reports, tickets, fines, blatantly mislead the judge at court, and removal of USA federal rights.”
Steven Magee

Steven Magee
“In the Awakenings movie I found it very interesting that the most profound awakenings in the catatonic patients occurred in 1969, the year that the Aurora Borealis was seen from N.Y. to Louisiana. It seems the patients were getting environmental radiation stimulation in addition to their L-Dopa drug that year. L-Dopa plus radiation therapy may eventually be proven to be a very potent brain stimulant.”
Steven Magee

“Getting caught up in someone else's dream is like a drug. Sometimes you have to go cold turkey. ~ Susan J. McIntire”

“Memory was my drug of choice. -Pea Hicks”
Larry Smith, Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure

Luis F. López Silva
“Se puede sentir amor incluso si no existe una persona a la cual demostrárselo. Venimos con ese sentimiento instalado por defecto, ¿sabes? Y estamos programados para amar a algo o alguien, incluso si no nos aman.”
Luis F. López Silva, Dopamina
