Quotations #1

What can I say – I like elegant ideas encased in beautiful words.

The thing is to find a truth which is true for me, to find the idea for which I can live and die.

-Søren Kierkegaard

I hate Kierkegaard for this one. Seriously. You know the feeling of irritation at people who have more or less the same idea as yours but can articulate it so much better? Yeah. I hate Kierkegaard.

Interesting characters are driven by one of four main wants: to be seen, to be heard, to be touched, or to be loved.

– Margaret Lyons

I like this quotation a lot – because I agree completely, which is rare – and that is partially because I found it. By this I mean I read an article that Margaret Lyons wrote, I liked what she said, and so here I am quoting her. I think it is an only child thing, wanting something to come from you and you alone.

Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than about the stories and people we’re quoting.

– John Green

Insanely true. I mean, come on, just refer to above for proof.

More to come, as soon as I find them.
