I only smile in the dark My only comfort is the night gone black I didn't accidentally tell you that I'm only happy when it rains Garbage
I'd like to bring a little light To shine a light on your life To make you feel loved No, don't want to be the only one you know I want to be the place you call home I lay myself down to make it so But you don't want to know Just shine, shine, shine Shine a little light Shine a light on my life And warm me up again Keane

[quotes] "Life becomes bearable only when one has come to terms with who one is, both in one's own eyes and in the eyes of the world. We all of us must come to terms with what and who we are, and recognise that this wisdom is not going to earn us any praise, that life is not going to pin a medal on us for recognising and enduring our own vanity or egoism or baldness or our pot-belly. No, the secret is that there's no reward and we have to endure out characters and our natures as best as we can, because no amount of experience or insight is going to rectify our deficiencies, our self-regard, or our cupidity. We have to learn that our desires do not find any real echo in the world. We have to accept the people we love do not love us, or not in the way we hope. We have to accept betrayal and disloyalty, and hardest of all, that someone is finer than we are in character or intelligence." taken from 'Embers' by Sandor Marai
"The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing" - Albert Einstein
Frodo: I can't do this Sam. Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something. Frodo: What are we holding on to Sam? Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for. - Lord of the Rings: the Return of the King ♥ (I can't remember if it's from the film or book or both though)
