Dance like nobodies watching, because you never know when someone will.
If a pictures worth a thousand words, a novel's worth a million pictures.
I have loved the words and I have hated them. I only hope I have made them right.
---The Book Thief---
Hi, I'm Sunshine! It's lovely to meet you!

What doesn't kill you will only make you stronger... you know, except for polio.
Nella vita vi è la distruzione, desolazione nella morte, ma c'è speranza nella rivoluzione.

To exist, you need to be remembered (based on a quote from Lain)
If a leaf falls down the tree in the middle of a forest, can anyone hear it? (not mine)
If you're not remembered, then you never existed.

"When life gives you lemons, take them with some sugar. Add the salt. Make it art."
First I thought it was a dream
But then it smashed into reality
Beautiful on the outside,
Decayed deeply within

When life gets you down, make a comforter - bo burnham
42.3 persecent of statistics are made up on the spot
Never meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and good with ketchup - Dragonfire
(This is my all time favorite quote ever)

These first two aren't mine!
Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside a dog, it's too dark to read.
Time flies like the wind. Fruit Flies like bananas.
Don't take it one day at a time, if you take it two or three days at a time you'll get things done much faster.

One of the courses I'm planning to take is philosophy, so I hope these are 'serene' enough
'A woman can keep a secret, what she can't keep is the secret that she's keeping a secret'
'An early bird is not a late bird'
'Birds of the same feathers make a great feather duster'
'Love is a feeling that you feel when you feel the feeling of feeling a feeling you never felt before.'

Stories are like yarn; just hold on to the tip and let the ball roll away

When life gives you lemons, don't brush your teeth.
"His destructive programming is taking effect. He will be irresistibly drawn to large cities where he will back up sewers, reverse street signs, and steal everyone’s left shoe."

When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons, what the hell am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man who’s gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I’m gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!
-Portal 2, Cave Johnson
So twinkle twinkle little star, now I know what you are.

Curiosity killed the cat, but the satisfaction brought it back.
Stop moaning about a half empty cup, there is a hole in the botom so fix it before it's all gone you dramatic bum.
"When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often suprised to find it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers."Ralph Waldo Emerson

When Life gives you lemons... you use it to spike their coke

Curiosity killed the cat, but the cat still has 8 lives.

When life gives you lemons, choke on the rinds! Or squeeze the lemon juice in its eye and take its wallet!
Review unto others as you would have others review unto you.

When life gives you lemonade, demand to know the whereabouts of your missing lemon friends.

Accept the lemons, and allow yourself to be zen while tasting their sourness like a monk walking on hot coals until you are immune to their taste.
