It was ice cream headaches and sweet avalanche.

“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”
--John Wesley

It was ice cream headaches and sweet avalanche when the pearls in our shells got up to dance.

I don't think that people with OCD go to regular people's heaven when they die. I think they go to the Container Store and organize forever.

“A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in.”
--Robert Orben

A philosopher once asked, "Are we human because we gaze at the stars or do we gaze at the stars because we are human?" Pointless really. Do the stars gaze back? Now that's a question.

"Now: I believe that you've had most of your important memories by the time you're thirty. After that, memory becomes water overflowing into an already full cup. New experiences just don't register in the same way or with the same impact. I could be shooting heroin with the Princess of Wales, naked in a crashing jet, and the experience still couldn't compare to the time the cops chased us after we threw the Taylors' patio furniture into their pool in the eleventh grade. You know what I mean."
--Douglas Coupland, 'Life After God'

"Nothing is impossible to a willing heart."
--John Heywood

I think that's what's wrong with the world; no one says what they feel, they always hold it inside. They're sad, but they don't cry. They're happy, but they don't sing or dance. They're angry, but they don't scream. Because if they do, they feel ashamed and that's the worst feeling in the world. So everyone walks with their heads down and no one sees how beautiful the sky really is.

"One of the hardest things to realize," she said "is that our 'someday' is right now."

She has had her cake, declared it delicious, and is enjoying every bite.

Sometimes 'right back where you started from' is right where you belong.
