Before saying anything, always think to yourself, "Since my life is not a porno, will this creep her out?"
Hey you! Look down. Your stupid is showing.
How hollow must your life be for you to waste it hating and oppressing others, whose lives are of no consequence to your own?
I imagine a world where you are only judged by how big of an asshole you are - not by genitalia, amount of melanin, whom you choose to love, or geographical location where you happened to have left your mother's womb. Just by whether or not you're a massive, massive dick.
I think some people, who have this incredible talent have it at a great expense - they are amazing artists because of their emotional turmoil, but while they are revered for what they share with the world, it never fills the void inside. As a result, they turn to other vices to try to mask the pain, but it is never enough... It is so sad that they are so lost and burn out before they are able to find peace. I am not sure that there is anything sadder than someone, who died inside before they were ever able to truly live. Re: Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, & Kurt Cobain

I'll say it again, for every moment you're with the wrong person, you are robbing yourself and the right person of the opportunity to find real happiness.
I've never understood why people get mad at others for not being interested in them romantically - especially when there are so many reasons to be mad at people that are within their control.
I've resolved that I'll hang out with them as long as they make me smile... & then, I'll move on to the next when they stop... if one of them ends up lasting forever, then awesome... if not, just like goldfish, you can always get another one when they start to get ichy.
If at first you don't succeed, sure, try again... but if you keep not succeeding, you should probably concentrate on something (or someone) else worthwhile & quit wasting your time.
If it isn't going to matter to you in 5 years, quit stressing about it. (Also, quit b*tching about it. It might matter when you're all alone in 5 yrs because you're annoying now.)
If you aren't happy with your life, change things until you are... if you can't change something, change your attitude about it.
If you're overwhelmed, lost, or like you life is out of control, do whatever you can that matters to someone else or ever did to you... it might not help, but it certainly won't hurt.
Insecurity isn't an attractive quality in a man.
It may be easier to get forgiveness than permission, but trust is harder to get back than both.
It's nice to feel needed... it's better to feel wanted.
Looking for a gem, we are sometimes dumb enough to try to hold on to a lump of coal, convinced that it will turn into a diamond in our lifetime... but all it does it get sh*t all over you until you burn it and use the energy for something else.

The more obstacles you encounter, the harder you must fight to meet your destiny. Never let adversity win. Never give up on yourself and the good you can bring to the world.
The only complicated things worth fighting for will change the world in some way and/or make you lots of money, and a complicated relationship will only keep you from doing either.
There is no fate... no predestination... no luck. Don't use that as an excuse to not live the life you want. Work for it. You make your future - no one else.
To be clear: I am not anti-marriage. I am anti-marrying-people-who-suck-at-life-and-will-suck-the-life-out-of-you.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life, and if you screw that up, you can start again tomorrow.
What if reincarnation really happens, and Jesus were reincarnated, & you were a total d*ck to him? It could happen. You should probably treat everyone like they were Jesus reincarnated.
