☥ Hii I'm Raven, my life is boring, I'm neurotic and possibly psychotic, and I have great taste (or so I'd like to think). Here are some quotes that I love ☥
“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and — in spite of True Romance magazines — we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely — at least, not all the time — but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”
— Hunter S. Thompson
"I should have been a pair of ragged claws, scuttling across the floors of silent seas"
— T.S. Eliot
"Sometimes I feel like a vampire."
— Ted Bundy
“I think perfection is ugly. Somewhere in the things humans make, I want to see scars, failure, disorder, distortion.”
— Yohji Yamamoto
“I have wanted to kill myself a hundred times, but somehow I am still in love with life.”
— Voltaire - Candide: or, Optimism
“I really don’t spend a lot of time worrying about what people think about me…I would be totally paralyzed. How could you get up in the morning if you worried about some poll or what somebody said about you? That’s giving up power over your life to somebody else, and I don’t intend to do that.”
— Hillary Clinton
"And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you."
— Friedrich Nietzsche
"And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted---nevermore!"
"And so being young and dipped in folly I fell in love with melancholy."
— Edgar Allan Poe
"I had no more need of God than He had of me, and if there was one, I often said to myself, I would meet Him calmly and spit in His face."
— Henry Miller
“It is so much safer not to feel, not to let the world touch me.”
— Sylvia Plath
“Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to such a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
“I am a sick man… I am a spiteful man. I am an unattractive man. I believe my liver is diseased, yet I do not know what ails me.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky - Brothers Karamazov & Notes From The Underground
"I never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person.”
— Franz Kafka; from a diary entry dated 23 March 1914
