Jim Morrison
“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”
Jim Morrison

“Morning is wonderful. Its only drawback is that it comes at such an inconvenient time of day.”
Glen Cook, Sweet Silver Blues

“Everything you look at can become a fairy tale and you can get a story from everything you touch.”
Hans Christian Andersen

“Life is like a beautiful melody, only the lyrics are messed up.”

“When you're cold, don't expect sympathy from someone who's warm.”
