Hey Sapphire85- I love those quotes from dave matthews band. I'm a big fan of theirs and have most of their CD's but i don't think i know those lyrics. If you could tell me which songs they are from so that I could listen for them, then that'd be awesome, thanks! Posts: 20 | Registered: Nov 2001

"When all is said and done, friendship is the only trustworthy fabric of the affections. So-called love is a delirious inhuman state of mind: when hot it substitutes indulgence for fair play; when cold it is cruel, but friendship is warmth in cold, firm ground in a bog." --Miles Franklin
and another point of view...
"Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it.... It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more." --Erica Jong
I love quotes, and have about four computer files full of them. One of these days I'll get around to actually organizing them.
Orson Welles' monologue, *the* monologue, from 'The Third Man'
"In Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love; 500 years of democracy and peace. And what did that produce?
the cuckoo clock."

"It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate... I am the captain of my soul." - Invictus, William Ernest Henley
"If being queer is a desease, then let's all call in sick from work. 'Nope, sorry, can't come in today. Still queer.'"
"Why's he wearing a dress?" "I can't imagine." -The adventures of Sebatian Cole
"When you die, you meet the old hag, and she eats your scars. If you have no scars, then she eats your eyeballs, and you are blind in the next life." -carved on a bus bench
"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind." - M K Ghandi
"Love's not...a straight road. In fact, it's not a road at all. It's a tangle of emotion and sensation and history and memory and attraction and passion and betrayal and forgiveness. It's not something you can ever control or predict. It can make you do colossally brainless things that make perfect sense at the time. It can make you shoot yourself in the foot, over and over. It's not...reasonable." - I don't remember
"Love lives in sealed bottles of regret."

Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog: Nobody really enjoys it and the frog generally dies as a result. -E. B. White
Woe, alas! to him who shall have loved forms, bodies, appearances only. Death will take all from him. Try to love souls, you shall find them again. -Victor Hugo, Les Miserables
We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again---and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore. -Mark Twain
And a couple anonymous ones:
Why is it that I have to climb 100 mountains to get to you, when all you have to do is smile to get to me?
The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right next to them, knowing you can't have them.
------------------ "Sometimes people care too much. I think it's called Love." ---Pooh Bear
"Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-brow'd night, Give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die, Take him and cut him out in little stars, And he will make the face of heaven so fine That all the world will be in love with night And pay no worship to the garish sun. " Romeo and Juliet, act 3, Scene 2
if ever thou shalt love, In the sweet pangs of it remember me; For such as I am all true lovers are, Unstaid and skittish in all motions else, Save in the constant image of the creature That is beloved. Twelfth Night, act 2 scene 4
"Ladies and Gentleman, take my advice. Pull down your pants, and slide on the ice." - Dr. Sidney Freedman, M*A*S*H 4077

"it's only after you've lost everything that you're free to do anything."

"i used to work in a funeral home to feel good about myself, just the fact that i was breathing."
"you know, the condom is the glass slipper of our generation. you slip it on when you meet a stranger. you dance all night, then you throw it away. the condom, i mean. not the stranger."

"christian, you may see me only as a drunken, vice-ridden gnome whose friends are just pimps and girls from the brothels. but i know about art and love, if only because i long for it with every fiber of my being."
------------------ "It's only after you've lost everything you're free to do anything."
There are a lot of quotes i really like, one i saw mentioned a couple of times:
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return."-Nat King Cole 'Nature boy' (the first time i heard that was when i watched Untamed Heart, and it was such a beautiful version in that movie, unfortunatly when i tried to tell people about the song no one knew what the hell i was talking about till Moulin Rouge came out.)
"Once, long ago, before there was such a thing as time, the world was shrouded in darkness. Then came the splendor of light, bringing life and love into the Universe, and the Lord of Darkness retreated deep into the shadows of the earth, plotting his return to power....by banishing light forever. But precious light is protected, harbored into the souls of Unicorns, the most mystical of all creatures. Unicorns are safe from the Lord of Darkness, they can only be found by the purest of mortals....Such a mortal is Jack, who lives in solitude with the animals of the forest. A beautiful girl named Lily loves Jack with all of her heart. In their innocence, they believe only goodness exists in the world. Together they will learn there can be no good without evil....No love without hate....No heaven without hell....No light without darkness. The harmony of the Universe depends upon an eternal balance. Out of the struggle to maintain this balance comes the birth of Legends. " -Legend
------------------ 'You've got the eyes of ten women. Not in a jar! I wasn't accusing you. I just mean your eyes are really nice'-coupling
Goddamn, this business is really lame I gotta live on an island to find riches So you send me your love from all around the world As if I could live on words and dreams and a million screams Oh how I need a hand in mine to feel. -Weezer =\/\/=
~*how does ink come out of pens?*~
~*stop looking at me in that tone of voice!*~
~*hell is a great place to be cuz u can complain all you want...no one has it worse than you*~
~*orange is not a size, its a number*~
How stupid is it? For all I know you want me too And maybe you just don't know what to do Or maybe you're scared to say: 'I'm falling for you' -Weezer
------------------ *~remember the only thing we need sometimes are chilly nights and warmer thighs, cuz nothing is like being held...sometimes*~
Life is nothing but random lottery and a series of near escapes. So I take pleasure in the details...Quarter pounders with cheese...those are good.The sky about ten minutes before it starts to rain...the moment where your laughter becomes a cackle...and I sit here and smoke my camel straights and ride my own melt. -Ethan Hawke, Reality Bites

"When authorities warn you of the sinfulness of sex, there is an important lesson to be learned. Do not have sex with the authorities." -Matt Groening, Life In Hell
"Better lives have been lived in the margins, locked in the prisons and lost on the gallows than have ever been enshrined in palaces." -Propaghandi
"i pledge allegiance to the flag of the multi national corporations and to the profit for which they stand one interlocking directorate under no home government divisible for monopoly and cheap labor for all" -Utah Phillips
"When u start to talk to ur food, start worrying... when it talks back, shoot yourself."
"If you're one in a million, then there are still thousands of other people just like you."
"Cursed are the believers of good and evil for they are frightened by shadows." <--- Anton LaVey
"Bad spelling can be lethal. For example, the greedy Seriph of Al-Yabi was cursed by a badly-educated deity and for some days everything he touched turned to Glod, which happened to be the name of a small dwarf from a mountain community hundreds of miles away who found himself magically dragged to the kingdom and relentlessly duplicated. Some two thousand Glods later the spell wore off. These days, the people of Al-Yabi are renowned for being remarkably short and bad-tempered."<---Terry Pratchett, Witches Abroad
I always carry a post-it note pad and a pen in my purse because I like to remember things. I write them down in my journal, and maybe one day I'll read it and be like - wow, I'm glad I wrote that down....or maybe not.
"People only listen to the words I say, but its the spaces between the words that give the most away."
"If you judge people, you have no time to love them."
"Follow the links in the chain that binds you until you discover how to free yourself."
And every girl's favorite - "Boys are like slinkies, its fun to watch them fall down the stairs"
------------------ No one's a virgin....Life screws everyone
"After all, the soul travels a road that winds into eternity; where is the harm in speeding one’s passage on that voyage? Particularly when that soul has traversed in a path not altogether desirable. But then again, who are we to judge what is desirable and what is not? After all, perception is the looking glass through which we take in our surroundings and view our world, and that glass is tinted a different hue for each individual; in short, perception makes up our reality. This makes the glass cut both ways. On the one hand, it creates a magnificent diversity; an incomprehensible kaleidoscope of weltaanshaungs from which we may piece together the mysteries of existence and the multiverse. However, the light given off inevitably manages to cast equally strong shadows. The glass and its innumerable shades divide us from one another, sometimes subtly, sometimes wholly, leading to catastrophic results, from the parting of friends to the bitter verges of rival civilizations. The glass is not just a lens, it is a wall, one that many would see shattered, but simultaneously none would dare to succeed, for if that barrier were broken, the world would be one continuous stream of harmony. And though a beautiful harmony it would be, it would also be utterly devoid of melody, and therein lies the limits of a healthy paradise. Melody is the colorful progeny of harmony, and should never be overshadowed by it. This definition, of course, far exceeds the realm of music, into the ever-augmenting fields of history and philosophy. Just as it is the melody of a famous tune we whistle, it is the trailblazers of history who are remembered, not the people who followed in their stead or supported them, but they too are important in their own way. For harmony exists solely to embellish melody; how vibrant would the reds in our life be in our eyes without the shades of gray to compare them to? -Matt Mckinney
------------------ what if my star is not to come? will my dreams fade to nothing? when the horizon darkens most...we all need to believe there is hope!!
