Favourite Quotes

I really am a sucker for memorable quotes. 

 

Below are some of my favourite quotes/ phrases or whatever you want to call it that I have compiled from books/ movies/ internet. 

 

 “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!”

 

Jack Kerouac in the novel On The Road

 

 

"How'd we lose the good that was given us, let it slip away, scattered, careless? What's keeping us from reaching out, touching the glory? "

 

This great evil. Where does it come from? How'd it steal into the world? What seed, what root did it grow from? Who's doin' this? Who's killin' us? Robbing us of life and light. Mockin' us with the sight of what we might've known. Does our ruin benefit the earth? Does it help the grass to grow, the sun to shine? Is this darkness in you, too? Have you passed to this night?

 

from the movie The Thin Red Line
