“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”
― Anaïs Nin

“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. I mean everybody. All of the people in the whole world, I mean everybody — no matter how dull and boring they are on the outside.

― Neil Gaiman

Everything else is secondary.”
― Steve Jobs

“I know these will all be stories some day, and our pictures will become old photographs. We all become somebody’s mom or dad. But right now, these moments are not stories. This is happening. I am here, and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive. And you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you’re listening to that song, and that drive with the people who you love most in this world. And in this moment, I swear, we are infinite.”
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

“And in that moment, he realized this was exactly what he’d been searching for all along, yet never knew could exist, until that moment. He was happy. The years of uncertainty. The nights of loneliness. The reckless decisions. The irrational moments of fleeting triumph. It all made sense now. And from the vanish point of retrospect all seemed necessary, so that he could be exactly where he was – happy. We’ll all get there.”
― “To Those Nights” by Wong Fu Productions

“I know that we all think we’re immortal. We’re supposed to feel that way, we’re graduating. The future is and should be bright, but like our brief four years in high school, what makes life valuable is that it doesn’t last forever – what makes it precious is that it ends. I know that now more than ever. And I say it today of all days to remind us that time is luck. So don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Make yours count for something. Fight for what matters to you, no matter what because even if you fall short, what better way is there to live life?”
― Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man 2
