"Life is not easy. But that's not the only truth that matters in this context.

"Fear is at the root of so many of the barriers that women face. Fear of not being liked. Fear of making the wrong choice. Fear of drawing negative attention. Fear of overreaching.

We are all addicts." - Pete Wentz

"The human mind isn't a terribly logical or consistent place.

"The rise of statism in our time is the natural result of the longing of godless, unchurched people for some kind of protection.

"Sometimes we may find that our partner continues to seek satisfaction in ways that we cannot live with. Nevertheless, when we decide to go our own way, we still have a choice as to how we separate.

It literally was a really bad hair experience." - Charlotte Sullivan

"We've all done things we wish we hadn't, made choices we didn't even know were choices at that time. but that doesn't mean we have to stick by them.

"You know, some people got no choice, and they can never find a voice, to talk with that they can even call their own. So the first thing that they see, that allows them the right to be, why they follow it, you know, it's called bad luck.." - Lou Reed

"Every movie goes through that U-shape where you start with 'Oh that's a great idea. I love it.' Everything's possible and then you face 'Oh, we can't do that, and that's impossible, and that's a bad choice.' You go the practicality of it. And then you come up to 'Great.' But that middle part is when you don't have results yet." - Jennifer Yuh Nelson

Now in respect of all these the good man is likely to go right and the bad to go wrong, but especially in respect of pleasure; for pleasure is common to man with the lower animals, and also it is a concomitant of all the objects of choice, since both the noble and the expedient appear to us pleasant." - Aristotle

"I never lied to you. (Kiara) Of course you did -you said you could see the real us- that we were' as bad as we claimed. But you did' and, just like everyone else, so long as we risk our lives to protect and save you, we"re okay. But the moment we have to make a choice not ours, the moment you see what our pasts have made us, you're horrified by the truth and hate us for it like we had some kind of choice in what we are. (Syn)" - Sherrilyn Kenyon
