I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June, And you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too

All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusion is called a philosopher.
Ambrose Bierce

I want someone who is fierce and will love me until death and knows that love is as strong as death, and be on my side forever and ever. Jeanette Winterson

Love is not breathlessness; It is not excitement; It is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love”, which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. 
 Louis de Bernières

Anyone who cannot come to terms with his life while he is alive needs one hand to ward off a little his despair over his fate... but with his other hand he can note down what he sees among the ruins.
Franz Kafka

He wanted all to lie in an ecstasy of peace; I wanted all to sparkle and dance in a glorious jubilee. I said his heaven would be only half alive; and he said mine would be drunk: I said I should fall asleep in his; and he said he could not breathe in mine. Emily Brontë

You must not ever stop being whimsical. And you must not, ever, give anyone else the responsibility for your life. Mary Oliver

I am different. And I don’t understand exactly how. And I don’t understand just why. Ellen Hopkins

You are the only one who has understood even a whisper of me, and I will tell you that I am the only person who has understood even a whisper of you.
Everything Is Illuminated, Jonathan Safran Foer

Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than about the stories and people we’re quoting. John Green

Another of my favourites, and it has taught me many things - the names of my fears and that perhaps I am a philosopher afterall?! How wonderful. Love it :)
