I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that you are out there and read this and know that, yes, its true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you. -Frida Kahlo

 

“Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”–Albert Camus

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” –Doctor Seuss

 

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,

There is society, where none intrudes,

By the deep sea, and music in its roar:

I love not man the less, but Nature more,

From these our interviews, in which I steal

From all I may be, or have been before,

To mingle with the Universe, and feel

What I can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.

‘My friends say I’m crazy and I agree, But that’s okay cause that’s the way I like to be.’ –OAR

 

“We all think we’re going to be great and we feel a little bit robbed when our expectations aren’t met. But sometimes expectations sell us short. Sometimes the expected simply pales in comparison to the unexpected. You got to wonder why we cling to our expectations, because the expected is just what keeps us steady. Standing. Still, the expected’s just the beginning, the unexpected is what changes our lives.”

“When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy”. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

 

‘and any man who knows a thing knows he knows not a damn, damn thing at all’

 

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” -Alice in Wonderland

 

“He puzzled and puzzed till his puzzler was sore, then he thought of something he hadn’t before. Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more” -The Grinch
