I consider 'frigid' a compliment.

League of Legends, by Lissandra

When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity.

Hello, I’m Severn Suzuki, speaking for E.C.O. – the Environmental Children’s Organisation. We are a group of twelve and thirteen-year-olds trying to make a difference: Vanessa Suttie, Morgan Geisler, Michelle Quigg and me. We raised all the money to come here ourselves, to come five thousand miles to tell you adults you must changes your ways.
Coming up here today, I have no hidden agenda. I am fighting for my future. Losing my future is not like using an election or a few points on the stock market. I am here to speak for all generations to come. I am here to speak on behalf of the starving children around the world, whose cries go unheard. I am here to speak for the countless animals dying across this planet because they have nowhere left to go.
I am afraid to go out in the sun now because of the holes in the ozone. I am afraid to breathe the air because I don’t know what chemicals are in it. I used to go fishing in Vancouver, my home, with my dad until just a few years ago we found the fish full of cancers. And now we hear about animals and plants going extinct every day – vanishing forever.
In my life I have dreamt of seeing the great herds of wild animals, jungles and rainforests full of birds and butterflies, but now I wonder if they will even exist for my children to see. Did you have to worry of these things when you were in my age?
All this is happening before our eyes and yet we act as if we have all the time we want and all the solutions. I’m only a child and I don’t have all the solutions, but I want you to realise that neither do you. You don’t know how to fix the holes in our ozone layer. You don’t know how to bring the salmon back up a dead stream. You don’t know how to bring back an animal now extinct. And you can’t bring back the forest that once grew where there is now desert. If you don’t know how to fix it, please stop braking it.
Here you may be delegates of your governments, business people, organisers, reporters or politicians – but really you are mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, aunts and uncles – and all of you are someone’s child.
I’m only a child yet I know we are all part of a family, five billion strong, in fact, thirty million species strong – and borders and governments will never change that. I’m only a child yet I know we’re all in this together and should act as one single world towards one single goal. In my anger, I am not blind, and in my fear, I am not afraid of telling the world how I feel.
In my country, we make so much waste, we buy and throw away, buy and throw away, buy and throw away and yet northern countries will not share with the needy. Even when we have more than enough, we are afraid to share. We are afraid to let go some of our wealth. In Canada, we live the privileged life, with plenty of food, water and shelter. We have watches, bicycles, computers and television sets. The list could go on for two days.
Two days ago here in Brazil, we were shocked when we spent some time with some children on the streets. This is what one child told us: 'I wish I was rich and if I were, I would give all the street children food, clothes, medicines, shelter and love and affection.” If a child on the streets who has nothing, is willing to share, why are we who have everything still so greedy?
I can’t stop thinking that these children are my own age, that it makes a tremendous difference where you are born, that I could be one of those children living in the Favelas of Rio; I could be a child starving in Somalia or a victim of war in the Middle East or a beggar in India. I am only a child yet I know, if all the money spent on war were spent on finding environmental answers, ending poverty and finding treaties, what a wonderful place this earth would be.
At school, even in kindergarten, you teach us how to behave in the world. You teach us: not to fight with others, to work things out, to respect others, to clean up our mess, not to hurt other creatures and to share – not be greedy. Then why do you go out and do the things you tell us not to do? Do not forget why you’re attending these conferences, who you’re doing this for – we are your own children. You are deciding what kind of world we are growing up in.
Parents should be able to comfort their children by saying 'everything is going to be alright, it’s not the end of the world” and 'we’re doing the best we can”. But I don’t think you can say that to us anymore. Are we even on your list of priorities?
My dad always says 'You are what you do, not what you say.” Well, what you do makes me cry at night. You grown ups say you love us, but I challenge you, please make your actions reflect your words. Thank you.

I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it.

Marilyn MonroeMen, Women

Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.

Albert EinsteinReason, Imagination

I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.

Albert EinsteinTolerance

A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets. But now you know there was a man named Jack Dawson, and that he saved me in every way that a person can be saved. I don't even have a picture of him. He exists now only in my memory.

Titanic, by Rose

Ready?- Ready, if you are.

Kerstin Gier in Edelstein Trilogie

Einstein said that any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. But it takes a touch of genius and lots of courage to move something in the opposite direction. I'm realizing that my touch of genius and my courage are coming too little, too late.

John Teller in Sons Of Anarchy, Season 1 Episode 8

Life's pretty good, and why wouldn't it be? I'm a pirate, after all.

The damage has been done. All that's left to do now is drink until the part of the brain that creates mental pictures is dead.

Charlie Harper in Two and a half Men, Season 1 Episode 18

'That's the problem with drinking', I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.

Ingrid Michaelson - Girls chase boys, Album: Lights out

All the broken hearts in the world still beats,
let's not make it harder than it has to be.

Ingrid Michaelson - Girls chase boys, Album: Lights out

If you have never spent whole afternoons with burning ears and rumpled hair, forgetting the world around you over a book, forgetting cold and hunger-

If you have never read secretly under the bedclothes with a flashlight, because your father or mother or some other well-meaning person has switched off the lamp on the plausible ground that it was time to sleep because you had to get up so early-

If you have never wept bitter tears because a wonderful story has come to an end and you must take your leave of the characters with whom you have shared so many adventures, whom you have loved and admired, for whom you have hoped and feared, and without whose company life seems empty and meaningless-

If such things have not been part of your own experience, you probably won't understand what Bastian did next.

Michael Ende in The Neverending StoryBooks, Reading

My father, I don't understand you, but I trust in you.

Proverbs

May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face and may the wings of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars.

Carrie: 'Well, there is one alternative...'
Doug: 'Euthanasia?! Do we dare?'

He's in love with you. I've only ever seen him look at one other girl the way he looks at you, and she's a lot shorter and shares his DNA.

Remember Me, by Aidan Hall

If you focus on what you left behind, you will never be able to see what lies ahead. Now go up and look around!

Ratatouille, by Gusteau

It's not a crime to be an asshole, but it's very counter-productive.

Hancock, by Ray Embrey

Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.

Forrest Gump, by Forrest GumpLife

Momma says stupid is as stupid does.

Forrest Gump, by Forrest GumpFoolishness

I am not a smart man, but I know what love is.

Forrest Gump, by Forrest GumpLove

We have tried to teach other Sky People. It is hard to fill a cup which is already full.

Avatar, by Tsahik

Now as long as you're just hanging there, pay attention. The only rules that really matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can't do. For instance, you can accept that your father was a pirate and a good man or you can't. But pirate is in your blood, boy, so you'll have to square with that some day. And me, for example, I can let you drown, but I can't bring this ship into Tortuga all by me onesies, savvy? So, can you sail under the command of a pirate, or can you not?

Pirates of the Caribbean - Am Ende der Welt, by Jack Sparrow

Angelica: "You were drunk!"
Jack: "I've actually never been that drunk."

Pirates of the Caribbean - On Stranger Tides, by Jack Sparrow

We can't stop here! This is bat country!

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, by Raoul Duke

There is a place like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger. Some say to survive it, you need to be as mad as a hatter.

Alice In WonderlandCraziness & Weirdness

'I don't think...'
'Then you shouldn't talk', said the Hatter.

Mad Hatter: 'Have I gone Mad?'
