"She laughed and danced with the thought of death in her heart."
Hans Christian Andersen, The Little Mermaid
"I wanted to give up the idea I had any control. Shake things up. To be saved by chaos. To see if I could cope, I wanted to force myself to grow again. To explode my comfort zone."
Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

Truisms and Inflammatory Essays by Jenny Holzer
finding the means to love myself is still a work in progress
"If you’re ever lucky enough to find a girl who is a hopeless romantic with a dirty mind, you should hold onto that. Because she’ll be yours at two in the morning and at two in the afternoon the following day. She’ll kiss you where it hurts and until it hurts. And that’s important. Someone who not only knows how to turn you on but also knows how to treat you right is someone worth a little something… and a little more than usual."
