Basics? The name's Anna, an artist (If anyone actually wants to see my artwork, PM me) and college student.
Remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.
"I am a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar."
"They weren't themselves inside. They were waiting to be, but they forgot. Then they see the sky and they remember what they are."
"We are all books containing thousands of pages and within each of them lies an irreparable truth."
"I don't even know who my mother was."
"I have an idea that Gatsby himself didn't believe it would come, and perhaps he no longer cared. If that was true, he must have felt that he had lost the old, warm world, paid a high price for living too long with a single dream. He must have looked up at an unfamiliar sky through frightening leaves and shivered as he found what a grotesque thing a rose is and how raw the sunlight was upon the scarcely created grass. A new world, material without being real, where poor ghosts, breathing dreams like air, drifted fortuitously about..."
"Books are strange things. Who knows what befalls them when thoughts hit the page and are immortalized a second time in the eyes of the reader."
"Tell me a story."
"You like this world of mine."
These two things a man may choose as long as stars shine up above. For the Silver Ring is Honor and the Ring of Gold is Love."
"How many men become ensnared by what they think is love and then find that they've sacrificed something precious?"
"Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens."
"You really think evil is a choice?"
"When you think about it, this is a pretty incredible time. I mean, growing up--that's something you only get to experience once in your life and then it's gone. And in some ways, maybe that's a good thing, but in others...I don't know. Sometimes I want to take these moments that are right on the edge, right on the line in between, and bottle them up so I can keep them forever. We'll never be in this place again. It's just a matter of how you're going to continue from here."
"Yes, it is easy to see that nearly six years of magical education have not been wasted on you, Potter. 'Ghosts are transparent'."
"He broke me, Barrons."
"Sometimes, Ms. Lane, one must break with one's past to embrace one's future. It is never an easy thing to do. It is one of the distinguishing characteristics between survivors and victims. Letting go of what was to survive what is."
"Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
"But this is touching, Severus," said Dumbledore seriously. "Have you grown to care for the boy after all?"
"He must've known I'd run out on you."
"You think I'm a fool?"
"I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress and grow brave in reflection."
"The coroner will find ink in my veins and blood on my typewriter keys."
"I would draw some of the great tales in fullness, and leave many only placed in the scheme and sketched. The cycles should be linked to a majestic whole, and yet leave scope for other minds and hands wielding paint and music and drama."
"Tempting, really. To live by skill and courage. One long adventure."
"They laid down arms at the first sign of inevitable crushing defeat. Can you imagine such a cowardly creature?"
"I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library."
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars, and in the middle, you see the blue center-light pop, and everyone goes ahh..."
"Hell would be waking up and wanting nothing."
A man says to God, "God, why did you make woman so beautiful?"
"Let's remember the things we've seen and the things we hope to see."
"I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
"What really knocks me over is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much though."
"I am not sure that I exist, actually.
"Somewhere in the world, someone is telling a story, a different story. A saga, a romance, a tale of unforseen death--it doesn't matter. It's sustaining the universe. That's why we're all still here: you can't stop stories from being told."
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.
While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.
If Carmen San Diego and Waldo ever got together, their offspring would probably just be completely invisible.
There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.
I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.
Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
Stop the Pairing Wars!
I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
Re-post this if you believe homophobia is wrong. Please do your part to end it.
I am the girl that doesn't go to school dances, or games, and when I do go, I sit in a corner and read a book. I am the girl that people look through when I say something. I am the girl that spends most of her free time reading, writing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal. I am the girl that people call weird and a freak either behind my back or to my face. I am the girl that doesn't spend all her time on MySpace, or talking to a girlfriend on a cell phone or regular phone. I am the girl that hasn't been asked out in a year. I am the girl that has stopped to smell the flowers and jump and splash in the rain. BUT I am also the girl who knows and is proud to be who she is, doesn’t care if people call her weird (it's a compliment), who loves reading and writing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do any more, , who can express herself better with words than actions, who doesn't need a guy to complete her, and knows the importance of the little things. Copy and paste this onto your account, and, if you are anything like me, so the girls who are different and unique can know in their weakest time that they are unique but not alone.
I am proud to say that my brother and I are on authonomy, as well as on tumblr. We're posting our original series there, an alternate history/fantasy. I'd very much appreciate people taking a look.
