Quotes About Dying Roses

"Its the only way to know youre really in love, when you ask the question would it be harder to watch him die, or to know hell watch me die? Is there more mercy in being the one who does the watching or in being the one who does the dying?

Quotes About Old Bottles

"My first incident drinking alcohol occurred after a 2-month period in which I stole wine coolers and beers from my parents and hid them in different places around my room. I was 14 years old, in eighth grade. I invited a friend over one night after I had stolen enough. After 2 wine coolers the friend interrupted me, saying, "Hold on," and vomited into a trash can. I vomited a lot into the toilet. The next day, like a dumbass, I put the empty wine cooler and beer bottles in our outside garbage bin without trying to cover them. My dad caught me as a result, but hid it from my mom for unknown reasons." - Author: Brandon Scott Gorrell
