Default Quote of the moment

As the title says - a quote that sums up your current mood/day/feelings.

"How are things going? She'll say and he'll say Fine, and it could mean anything. She doesn't even know what things are, any more, those things that are supposed to be going so fine."

Atwood - The Robber Bride.

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose,

To be "normal" is to be adequate.

If you're thinking outside the box, you're in the box.

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.***8220;

***8212;Ralph Waldo Emerson

I had a tough day.. didn't do as well on a quiz as I thought I did, kept beating myself up for not studying harder, had a long day at work and kind of binged my way through my fridge like a starved animal. Tomorrow is a new day.

I write fanfiction, and have been opening each chapter of a particular story with a quote, so I have quite a list. My personal favorite for right now (though it hasn't quite fit into the story yet).

This is the world. Beautiful and Terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid.

Blue moon, you saw me standin' alone,
Without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own
Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for
You heard me sayin' a prayer for
Someone I really could care for...

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper "please adore me"
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold....


Blue Moon, 30's Jazz standard.

Tu t'en vas à la dérive
Sur la rivière du souvenir
Et moi, courant sur la rive,
Je te crie de revenir
Mais, lentement, tu t'éloignes
Et dans ma course éperdue,
Peu à peu, je te regagne
Un peu de terrain perdu.

De temps en temps, tu t'enfonces
Dans le liquide mouvant
Ou bien, frôlant quelques ronces,
Tu hésites et tu m'attends
En te cachant la figure
Dans ta robe retroussée,
De peur que ne te défigurent
Et la honte et les regrets.

Tu n'es plus qu'une pauvre épave,
Chienne crevée au fil de l'eau
Mais je reste ton esclave
Et plonge dans le ruisseau
Quand le souvenir s'arrête
Et l'océan de l'oubli,
Brisant nos cœurs et nos têtes,
A jamais, nous réunit.


La Noyee, Serge Gainsbourg.

French speakers can decipher if they wish - I won't translate it in full because too much is lost. But the jist of the last verse is important (at least to me);

"And we dive into the rushes, when the remembrance stops and the ocean of forget begins, we only break our hearts and heads, never to be reunited..."

Love this.

Mine for the moment is - "It's a big, big world. It's easy to get lost in it." - Up, Justin Bieber
