words to live by
"You long for freedom. You long to do what you want to do because you want it; to act on selfish impulse."
- Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

"I do not wish to expiate, but to live. My life is for itself and not for a spectacle."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

"Destiny isn't always like a party at the end of the evening. Sometimes it's nothing more than struggling through life day to day."
- Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

"You need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed -- and often -- and by someone who knows how."
- Rhett Butler, Gone with the Wind

"'I will make it through this nightmare. I will beat the odds, as great as they are. I have survived so far, miraculously. Now I will turn miracle into routine. The amazing will be seen every day. I will put in all the hard work necessary.'""
- Yann Martel, The Life of Pi

"Don't get me wrong, I love animals. I just love to eat them more. Fun to pet... better to chew!"
- Jim Gaffigan, Beyond the Pale

"[I fear] A cage. To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire."
- JRR Tolkien (Eowyn), The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

"I'm no model lady. A model's just an imitation of the real thing."
- Mae West

"'Bitch' may be the new 'Black,' but 'Black' is the new president, bitch!"
- Tracy Morgan, Saturday Night Live

"If you care about something, you have to protect it -- if you're lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to LIVE it."
- John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

"'What limits people is lack of character. What limits people is that they don't have the fucking nerve or imagination to star in their own movie, let alone direct it.'"
- Tom Robbins (Bernard Mickey Wrangle), Still Life with Woodpecker: A Sort of Love Story

artwork disclaimer
My artwork strongly expresses my feelings and/or stance on certain issues, and I'm positive some of you will not like what you see, all I ask is that you THINK before posting a rude or malicious comment. I feel I've been very gracious to others on expressing their views in their own journals and only ask that you show me the same courtesy. Constructive criticism is always welcome, of course. This includes statements other than "It sucks," and "OMG I HATE YOU!!ONE!11ONE!" Besides, the fastest way to lose someone's attention is to employ anger in your response.
