 "The older you get, the more rules they're gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep on livin' man." -Dazed and Confused

"Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy. Lighten up while you still can. Don't even try to understand. Just find a place to make your stand, and take it easy." -The Eagles

"All I wanna do is let it be and be with you and watch the wind blow by. And all I wanna see is you and me go on forever like the clear blue sky. Slowly, there's only you and I. And all I wanna do is watch the wind blow by." -Tim McGraw

"Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, with open arms and open eyes." -Incubus

 “The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating...and you finish off as an orgasm." -George Carlin

"I want to love, I want to leave. I want you to love me, I want you to leave me. I want to stand where I can see, watching you love me. I'm watching you leave me now." -Yellowcard

"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on." -Robert Frost

"The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it... Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate.... Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." -Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Love is a homeless guy, searching for treasure in the middle of the rain and finding a bag of gold coins and then slowly finding out they're all filled with chocolate and, even though he's heartbroken, he can't complain 'cause he was hungry in the first place." -Bo Burnham

"It wasn't just any tree. It was an ancient Joshua tree. It stood in a crease of land where the desert ended and the mountain began, forming a wind tunnel. From the time the Joshua tree was a tiny sapling, it had been so beaten down by the whipping wind that, rather than trying to grow skyward, it had grown in the direction that the wind pushed it... One time I saw a tiny Joshua tree sapling growing not too far from the old tree. I wanted to dig it up and replant it near our house. I told mom that I would protect it from the wind and water it every day so that it could grow nice and tall and straight. Mom frowned at me. 'You'd be destroying what makes it special,' she said, 'It's the Joshua tree's struggle that gives it its beauty.'" -Jeannette Walls

"You can spend your whole life building something from nothing, and one storm can blow it all away. Build it anyway." -Martina McBride

"I am a new day rising. I'm a brand new sky to hang the stars upon tonight. I am a little divided; do I stay or run away and leave it all behind? It's times like these you learn to live again. It's times like these you give and give again. It's times like these you learn to love again. It's times like these time and time again." -Foo Fighters

"You know the Greeks didn't write obituaries. They only asked one question after a man died: 'Did he have passion?'" -Serendipity

"You know it's funny what a young man recollects. 'Cause I don't remember bein' born. I don't recall what I got for my first Christmas and I don't know when I went on my first outdoor picnic. But I do remember the first time I heard the sweetest voice in the wide world." -Forrest Gump

"But listen carefully to the sound of your loneliness. Like a heartbeat, drives you mad. In the stillness of remembering what you had, and what you lost." -Fleetwood Mac

"I'll watch the night turn light blue, but it's not the same without you, because it takes two to whisper quietly. The silence isn't so bad 'til I look at my hands and feel sad, 'cause the spaces between my fingers are right where yours fit perfectly." -Adam Young (Owl City)

"I guess when it comes down to it, being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up. These are the best days of our lives. The only thing that matters is just following your heart, and eventually you'll finally get it right." -The Ataris
