As I sit here now, when I take off my shoe and I look down at my scar, I see beauty in it. I see all the hard work, all the sacrifices. I see the journey that it took to get back to this point of being healthy. And I see beauty in that struggle. That's what makes it beautiful.
- A positive note -
To all the folk who are on here writing up quotes that are, obviously, about their ended relationships: move on. We all know it's hard, but your relationship ended for a reason-maybe it was your fault, and maybe it wasn't your fault. Either way, write about something; stop romanticizing it. One day you'll look back at the sentimental things you wrote and cringe. You're on here improving a skill-great start in moving on! Keep it up and write about something positive. They sucked anyway.

She's so pretty Fuck self-pity, I feel so shitty I wanna text her in a jealous rage But if she reply to say anything, I'ma smile, I know What do I do with myself? Sit in my room for some days? Play Xbox with piles full of wet socks? Fuck that.
Some people are OK with getting drafted. Some people are OK with playing two years in the league, four years in the league, six years in the league. Some people are OK with just scoring a basket in an NBA game. I'm not OK with any of that. I'm not satisfied until I win a championship, I want everybody to work the way that I work and it's wrong for me to think like that because people don't do it! But in my mind I'm just like why? Why don't you want to chase greatness the way I do?
Lyrics are important, but it's hard because English isn't my first language, although it feels like it is these days! I grew up with amazing melodies, so getting that right on a song has always been the key thing for me, but there's no reason why a great melody doesn't deserve great lyrics.

There's one major reason I'm ready to be done with high school, and it' all culminating now, the first day back from winter break, in Senior Drama. Because where else, right?

Nobody's perfect. I was taken to see an educational consultant that autumn and that woman did an evaluation. She sent my parents a letter. I read it. It said I was "highly gifted." Are people "lowly gifted"? Or "medium gifted"? Or just "gifted"? It's possible that all labels are curses. Unless they are on cleaning products.
A homography (or projective transformation) is a bijection of the projective plane that preserves collinearity and the cross ratio (hence mapping conics to conics).
I love when you can't take a punch. I love that you won today using brains, not brawn. And I love that you're always trying to be better. But, I don't want you to be the hero. The hero's never the one that's left standing.
- Spring Day
Until this cold winter ends, and the spring comes again, and until the flowers bloom again, please stay there a little longer. I try to ease your pain like white smoke. I say that I'm gonna erase you but I can't really let you go yet.
- No Matter What Happens (shortened version)
I've learned no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life goes on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he or she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.
- A New Door
When one door of happiness closes, another one opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
Dear friend here we are again, pretending to understand how you think you're world is ending sending signals and red flags and waves, it's hard to tell the difference between blood and water these days, I'll pray that one day you see, the only difference between life and dying is one that's trying that's all we're called to do, so try to love me and I'll try to save you.
- No Day But Today
There is no future. There is no past. I live each moment as my last. There's only us. There's only this. Forget regret - or life is yours to miss. No other road. No other way. No day but today. There's only yes. Only tonight. We must let go. To know what is right. No other course. No other way. No day but today.

Every problem has a solution. But after every solution, there's a new problem to tackle. You don't stop after you solve one thing. You keep going, you find a new way, try to do better and create better. Tearing something down isn't the end; doing something great, or better, something RIGHT, is. Or maybe there isn't such a thing as an end goal at all. You accomplish something, and then you shift, ready to accomplish the next. You keep solving one problem after another until you change the world.
The sound of the piano came from what his father called the living room and what his mother called the parlor. It sounded like music from another world, far away, the way talk and laughter on a summer-crowded beach must sound to an exhausted swimmer who struggles with the undertow.
I remember when I was a kid, if you had your name on a piece of vinyl, man, you were, like, in the halls of Valhalla; all of sudden, you were hanging out with Odin and being at the table of the gods. You were the real deal; you weren't some guy struggling in a garage somewhere.
