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.

3. Atticus Finch (The wisest man in literature)
4. Mr. Knightley (A true gentleman...I wish chivalry weren't dead)

8. Jane Eyre (A little too quiet and a bit of a pushover, but she's still cool)

Quotes:

"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.
-Pride and Prejudice

"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

"So, talk."
"Talk, sir?"
"Yes, talk."
- Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester, 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.
-Jane Eyre

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.
-Prime Minister, Love Actually

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.
Ilsa: But what about us?
Rick: We'll always have Paris. We didn't have it before...we'd...we'd lost it until you came to Casablanca. We got it back last night.
Ilsa: When I said I would never leave you...
Rick: And you never will. But I've got a job to do, too. Where I'm going, you can't follow. What I've got to do, you can't be any part of. Ilsa, I'm no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you'll understand that. Here's looking at you, kid.
-Casablanca

Lord Wessex: How is this to end?
Queen Elizabeth: As stories must when love's denied: with tears and a journey.
-Shakespeare in Love

"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.
-Touchstone, As You Like It

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms:
And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress’ eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard;
Jealous in honour, sudden, and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon’s mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lin'd,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slipper’d pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well sav'd, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness, and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.
-Jaques, As You Like It

"I think, therefore I am." -Rene Descartes

Stars, hide your fires!
Let not light see my black and deep desires.
-Macbeth

Is this a dagger which I see before me...?"
-Macbeth

Naught's had, all's spent
Where our desire is got without content.
'Tis safer to be that which we destroy
Than, by destruction, dwell in doubtful joy.
-Lady Macbeth

It will have blood; they say, blood will have blood:
Stones have been known to move and trees to speak.

-Macbeth

Out, damned spot! Out I say!
-Lady Macbeth

What's done cannot be undone.
-Lady Macbeth
