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

Your past doesn't define you. Only your present and your future. If your life is screwed up, stop making excuses. What are you going to do about it today?
Neglecting your health is the equivalent to spitting in the face of everyone fighting to stay alive and of those who have lost their fight.
If you aren't happy with your life, change things until you are... if you can't change something, change your attitude about it.
As a kid, I dreamed of a knight in shining armor coming to rescue me. Now, I just dream of equal pay for equal work.
Before saying anything, always think to yourself, "Since my life is not a porno, will this creep her out?"
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 used to dream of a week-long beach vacation with white sand under my toes... right now, I'd settle for 48 hours at a Motel 6 with some Lysol and a UV lamp.
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.

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.)

Some people change. Most people don't. Accepting this makes it much harder for them to disappoint you.
The Bible told me to be a, "fisher of men". I'm trying, but it gets so exhausting to have to reel them in just to throw them back once you realize it's just another crappie.
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.
