Okay, I've thought long and hard about each and every one of the quotes and lyrics that appear before you. I seriously doubt anyone will take the time to read them all, but they're there. I love all of these words and many more that I deemed unworthy of publication on my grand website.

Even when I'm in a perfectly good mood, I walk around looking like I'm going to kill myself." --Lauren Hoffman "Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star." --I can't remember. Sorry. "I'd rather be able to face myself in the bathroom mirror than to be rich and famous." --Ani "Prying open my third eye" --Tool
