Quotes About Being Ashamed Of Someone

"There was a time I stopped talking, just like you. My reasons were a little bit different, but... I think the feelings of being ashamed of myself and hating myself... are the same. Here it says "to like yourself." What does that mean? Good things---how are you supposed to find them? I only know things that I hate about myself. Because thats all I know: I hate myself. Even if your force yourself to find good things... it feels so empty. It doesnt work that way. People like your teacher just dont get it.I think... when you hear someone say they like you for the first time... then you can begin to like yourself. I think when someone accepts you for the first time... you feel like you can forgive yourself a little. You can begin to face your fears.~Yuki" - Author: Natsuki Takaya

Quotes About Hard To Love

"It was as if for the remainder of his life he was condemned to carry with him the egos of certain people, early met and early loved, and to be only as complete as they were complete themselves. There was some element of loneliness involved--so easy to be loved--so hard to love." - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Quotes About Cheeky Life

"After a year or two, the long term expats wont see the beggars the same way. After a year or two, the cheeky young monks wont make them smile. After a year or two, the newest restaurant opening wont pull them in. To preserve they will withdraw and settle. They will come to accept the limits of it all. The hype wont bother them. The promise wont motivate them. They will have accepted their odd expat life, their awkward place in the chimera that is Myanmar today." - Author: Craig Hodges

Quotes About Being Walked Out On

"For Oscar, high school was the equivalent of a medieval spectacle, like being put in the stocks and forced to endure the peltings and outrages of a mob of deranged half-wits, an experience from which he supposed he should have emerged a better person, but thats not really what happened—and if there were any lessons to be gleaned from the ordeal of those years he never quite figured out what they were. He walked into school every day like the fat lonely nerdy kid he was, and all he could think about was the day of his manumission, when he would at last be set free from its unending horror. Hey, Oscar, are there faggots on Mars?—Hey, Kazoo, catch this. The first time he heard the term moronic inferno he know exactly where it was located and who were its inhabitants." - Author: Junot Díaz

Quotes About Orderly

"The old concept of chronological, orderly, symmetrical development of character died when it was discovered that the unconscious motivations are entirely at odds with fabricated conventions. Human beings do not grow in perfect symmetry. They oscillate, expand, contract, backtrack, arrest themselves, retrogress, mobilize, atrophy in part, proceed erratically according to experience and traumas. Some aspects of the personality mature, others do not. Some live in the past, some in the present. Some people are futuristic characters, some are cubistic, some are hard-edged, some geometric, some abstract, some impressionistic, some surrealistic!" - Author: Anaïs Nin

Quotes About Saffron

"For Saffron," it said in shaky old writing on the damaged base, and on the other side, "Saffys angel."Saffron, picking up the broken fragments one by one, said it didnt matter. She hugged Rose and Indigo and Caddy and Sarah, and said again and again that it didnt matter, it didnt matter at all." - Author: Hilary McKay

Quotes About Nando

"Há qualquer coisa de libertador associada à perda de tudo. Primeiro chora-se, depois fica-se atordoado; em seguida enumera-se aquilo que se perdeu e reflecte-se sobre a dureza do futuro, pensando que nunca conseguiremos obter outras coisas como aquelas que desapareceram. Finalmente, depois de tudo isso, sente-se uma estranha leveza. Sem as coisas que sempre tivemos, passamos a ser outra pessoa, qualquer pessoa, ninguém. É uma sensação esquisita, como a de estarmos embriagados, abandonando-nos à embriaguez. (..) De repente senti-me capaz de qualquer coisa, por muito arrojada que fosse." - Author: Judith Merkle Riley

Quotes About Life Meme
