    From Ghost Rider: "Feels like my skull's on fire." Evanescence- 'I long to be like you, lie cold in the ground like you.' Evanescence- 'Without a soul, my spirit sleeping somewhere cold.' Evanescence- 'Could'nt take the blame, sick with shame, must be exhausting to lose your own game. Selfishly hated, no wonder you're jaded, you can't the victim this time, and you're too late.' 'All this time you were pretending, so much for my happy ending.' 'Real girls aren't perfect. Then again, perfect girls aren't real.' 'Just when you thought you were the center of attention, we showed up.' Paris Hilton- 'Every woman should have four pets in her life. A mink in her closet, a jaguar in the garage, a tiger in her bed, and a jackass who pays for it all.' Paris Hilton- 'All you have to do in life is go out with your friends; party hard and look twice as good as that b*tch standing next to you.' 'I'm the author of my life. Unfortunatley, I'm writing in pen and I can't erase my mistakes.' 'It's okay if you want to drop dead.' 'I'm not saying I'm cool. That's your job.' 'I'm happy. Don't wreck it by talking.' 'At the end of my tantrums, someone gets buried.' 'I’m not a pessimist. I’m optimistically challenged.' 'You an say anything about me as you please, but I am what I am and that's something you'll never be.' 'It's cool if you hate me. If I were you, I'd be jealous too.' 'Beauty is found in the heart, not in the eyes of some jealous b*tch; so when you say I'm ugly, i'll laugh my cute laugh and say these simple words: Don't hate me cause you ain't me.' 'I am outspoken, opinionated, and determined. I want what I want and there is nothing wrong with that! So try to stomp on me, try to douse my inner flame, try to squash every ounce of beauty I hold within me and you won't succeed. And if that makes me a b*tch, so be it. I embrace the title and am proud to bear it...' Hope you liked!

    "I think people who truly can live a life in music are telling the world, 'You can have my love, you can have my smiles. Forget the bad parts, you don't need them. Just take the music, the goodness, because it's the very best, and it's the part I give most willingly'"

    anything by Teddy Roosevelt...He's so elegant and influencial...

    “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

    I think that quote is so inspirational...
