Yo dudes! I'm a semi-normal person from Kentucky who enjoys reading, writing, drawing, and obsessing about Shakespeare. I'm bored...
You may be wondering why I changed my penname. I'm named after Tess from Tess of the d'Urbervilles. She died. I also love Anna from Anna Karenina and Fantine from Les Miserables. They both died, too. Sometimes I have these really Catherine Morland-esque fantasies that I'm a heroine in some tragic novel.
You know what I love? Pride and Prejudice. Yeah. Best book ever.
"I love you. Most ardently." -Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. -Pride and Prejudice
"Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us." -Mary Bennet
A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony, in a moment.
"I was in the middle before I knew I had begun." -Mr. Darcy
All happy families are alike. All unhappy families are unhappy in their own way. -Anna Karenina
If we shadows have offended, think but this and all is mended. That you have but slumbered here, while these visions did appear. -A Midsummer Night's Dream
I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul! -Heathcliff, Wuthering Heights
Reader, I married him.-Jane Eyre, Jane Eyre
I remembered that the world was wide, and that a varied field of hopes and fears, of sensations and excitements, awaited those who had courage to go forth into its expanse, to seek real knowledge of life amidst its perils.
Parting is such sweet sorrow! -Juliet, Romeo and Juliet
I love that word "relationship". Covers all manner of sins, doesn't it? I fear that this has become a bad relationship. A relationship based on the President taking exactly what he wants and casually ignoring all those things that really matter to, erm... Britain. We may be a small country but we're a great one, too. The country of Shakespeare, Churchill, the Beatles, Sean Connery, Harry Potter, David Beckham's right foot. David Beckham's left foot, come to that. And a friend who bullies us is no longer a friend. And since bullies only respond to strength, from now onward, I will be prepared to be much stronger. And the President should be prepared for that.
Oh. Hiya kids. Here is an important message from your Uncle Bill. Don't buy drugs... Become a pop star, and they give you them for free! -Billy Mack, Love Actually
"We need Kate and we need Leo, and we need them now!" -Daniel, Love Actually
The one place where a man ought to get a square deal is in a courtroom, be he any color of the rainbow, but people have a way of carrying their resentments right into a jury box. As you grow older, you’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it—whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash. -Atticus Finch
But there is one way in this country in which all men are created equal- there is one human institution that makes a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of an Einstein, and the ignorant man the equal of any college president. That institution, gentlemen, is a court. It can be the Supreme Court of the United States or the humblest J.P. court in the land, or this honourable court which you serve. Our courts have their faults, as does any human institution, but in this country our courts are the great levellers, and in our courts all men are created equal. -Atticus Finch
I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks. -Scout Finch
In the secret courts of men's hearts Atticus had no case. Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed. -To Kill a Mockingbird
"An' they chased him 'n' never could catch him 'cause they didn't know what he looked like, an' Atticus, when they finally saw him, why he hadn't done any of those things... Atticus, he was real nice..." "Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them." -Atticus and Scout Finch
Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them. Just standing on the Radley porch was enough. -To Kill a Mockingbird
People can tell you to keep your mouth shut, but it doesn't stop you having your own opinions. Even if people are still very young, they shouldn't be prevented from saying what they think. -Anne Frank
It's difficult in times like these: ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us, only to be crushed by grim reality. It's a wonder I haven't abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart. I simply can't build my hopes on a foundation of confusion, misery, and death...and yet...I think...this cruelty will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again. -Anne Frank
Laziness may appear attractive but work gives satisfaction. -Anne Frank
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles. -Anne Frank
Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. -Rick Blaine
Rick: If that plane leaves the ground and you're not with him, you'll regret it. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.
Lord Wessex: How is this to end?
"I don't know. It's a mystery." -Philip Henslowe
"I could've gotten more out of it." -Oskar Schindler
"The list is an absolute good. The list is life." -Itzhak Stern
"If he jumps, I'm fucked!" -Troy, Death at a Funeral
"Everything's so fucking green!" -Death at a Funeral
We quarrel in print, by the book, as you have books for good manners: I will name you the degrees. The first, the Retort Courteous; the second, the Quip Modest; the third, the Reply Churlish; the fourth, the Reproof Valiant; the fifth, the Countercheck Quarrelsome; the sixth, the Lie with Circumstance; the seventh, the Lie Direct.
All the world's a stage,
"I think, therefore I am." -Rene Descartes
Stars, hide your fires!
Is this a dagger which I see before me...?"
Naught's had, all's spent
It will have blood; they say, blood will have blood:
Out, damned spot! Out I say!
What's done cannot be undone.
