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.

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)
Lain Iwakura: 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."

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.'

When life gives you lemons, don't brush your teeth.

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 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.

Don't panic!

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.
