Everybody can particiapte in this! When someone says something you have to reply to them with a quote! So if I say "The woods are lovely dark and deep"-Robert Frost, someone could reply with "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life"-Thoreau and so on and so forth. So I'll start and we'll see how this goes.

In silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.

How should I greet thee? -

"When you don't fit in, you become superhuman. You can feel everyone else's eyes on you, stuck like Velcro. You can hear a whisper about you from a mile away. You can disappear, even when it looks like you're still standing right there. You can scream, and nobody hears a sound.
You become the mutant who fell into the vat of acid, the Joker who can't remove his mask, the bionic man who's missing all his limbs and none of his heart.
You are the thing that used to be normal, but that was so long ago, you can't even remember what it was like. "-Jodi Picoult (Nineteen Minutes)

Lori Davidson (Laddie) | 1 comments We tell ourselves stories in order to live... ~Joan Didion


Brandt A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
- Albert Einstein


Rebecca Mabe (Beckegirl) Man masters nature not by force but by understanding. This is why science has succeeded where magic failed: because it has looked for no spell to cast over nature.
