"Is there no way out of the mind?" ― Sylvia Plath

Mostly I feel like I'm thinking too much than other people usually do, but in these days, I feel I'm reaching the limit of mine; my mind starts to suffer also at night while dreaming on the top of it. I wish I could shut down my mind just for some time, just for taking a rest. I don't know why I am like this; feeling trapped in the world just like I come from somewhere else. I want to be on the road forever -on the outside of all the people I had to deal with and the things I'm responsible for- to satisfy my mind with the state of freedom.

The summer finally came, and finally, I'm at home again; safe and sound. I must say: I realized that I missed being with mom and dad more than I thought. For two days, I sleep like a baby without any interruption. After the end of a tiring semester, I deserved a better-qualified sleep, right? After all, I have lots of time to do nothing and also do everything I wanted to but couldn't find time before. Sooo, writing and finding more time to write is what I need... because I wanted to experience all the self-awakening within this process. When I think about writing something that I really like to write about, the first thought of mine leads me to write about quotes and lyrics which I always admire them especially when I see unique ones.

In this post, I will list some of my favorite quotes from books, songs or movies; just as a reminder to me and you. I will update the post when I find more quotes to add to this list.

ALL Damien Rice songs' lyrics... literaly I love all of them!

“If you asked me now who I am, the only answer I could give with any certainty would be my name. For the rest: my loves, my hates, down even to my deepest desires, I can no longer say whether these emotions are my own, or stolen from those I once so desperately wished to be.”
― Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited

“Sometimes, I feel the past and the future pressing so hard on either side that there's no room for the present at all.” 
― Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited

“[Change is] the only evidence of life.” 
― Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited

"Wait for the day, you'll go away
Knowing that you warned me of the price I'd have to pay
And life's full of flaws, who knows the cause?
Living in the memory of a love that never was"
― Blackmore's Night, "Long Long Time"

“Usually we walk around constantly believing ourselves. "I'm okay" we say. "I'm alright". But sometimes the truth arrives on you and you can't get it off. That's when you realize that sometimes it isn't even an answer--it's a question. Even now, I wonder how much of my life is convinced.” 
― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

"By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
Held on as tightly as you held on me
Held on as tightly as you held on me..."
― The Cinematic Orchestra, "To Build a Home"

"Real loss is only possible when you love something more than you love yourself."
― from "Good Will Hunting"

 "And people just untie themselves
Uncurling lifelines
If you could just forgive yourself
But still you stumble, feet give way
Outside the world seems a violent place
But you had to have him, and so you did
Some things you let go in order to live
While all around you, the buildings sway
You sing it out loud, "who made us this way?"
I know you're bleeding, but you'll be okay
Hold on to your heart, you'll keep it safe
Hold on to your heart, don't give it away"
― Florence + The Machine, "Various Storms & Saints"

"The same old scenario, the same old rain
And there's no explosions here
Then something unusual, something strange
Comes from nothing at all
I saw a spaceship fly by your window
Did you see it disappear?"
― Damien Rice, "Amie"

"How do you say goodbye to someone you can't imagine living without? I didn't say goodbye. I didn't say anything. I just walked away."
― from "My Blueberry Nights"

"And in my dreams, I meet the ghosts of all the people who have come and gone
Memories, they seem to show up so quick but they leave you far too soon
Naïve I was just staring at the barrel of a gun
And I do believe that, yeah
But I've got high hopes, it takes me back to when we started
High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again
High hopes, oh, when it all comes to an end
Now the world keeps spinning"
― Kodaline, "High Hopes"

"Come on, come on
Put your hands into the fire
Explain, explain
As I turn, I meet the power
This time, this time
Turning white and senses dying
Pull up, pull up
From one extreme to another"
― Thirteen Senses, "Into the Fire"

"You've ruined me now
Though I liked it now I'm ruined
I had no choice
When I heard your voice"
― Norah Jones, "You've Ruined Me"

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.” 
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

"Remember: that giants sleep too soundly; that witches are often betrayed by their appetites; dragons have one soft spot, somewhere, always; hearts can be well-hidden, and you can betray them with your tongue."
― Neil Gaiman, Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders
