Top Quotes About Getting Something You Want

1. "The time of getting fame for your name on its own is over. Artwork that is only about wanting to be famous will never make you famous. Any fame is a by-product of making something that means something. You don't go to a restaurant and order a meal because you want to have a shit."
Author: Banksy

4. "I won't share you, Dylan. I mean that. If you think for one second now that we're married, you can try and pull some kind of shit over on me, you'd better think again. I can take whatever you can dish out when it comes to pain, embarrassment and humiliation, and whatever else you have going on in that wicked mind of yours, but I'll be damned if I'll share you with another woman. Or man." What the fuck? I almost laugh at her, but she's so serious she would probably slap the shit out of me. "Calm the hell down. I'm not trying to pull anything over on you, okay? And seriously, a man?" "Well, I don't know. Maybe one of your secrets is that you like getting pegged in the ass or something." This time I laugh out loud at her and she narrows her eyes at me. "Don't ask me to peg you either, because it's never going to happen." I laugh even louder. Good God this woman is funny. "I promise you that I don't want to be pegged, Isa."

Marcus slanted a glance at him, and his green eyes were hard, brittle. "Don't think about it, pet. I don't. No one who lives it dwells on this fucking stuff. You just thank God or your own balls for getting yourself through it, pulling yourself up into something better. The day I see pity in your face, I want your fucking ass out of my life."
Author: Joey W. Hill
