Hey /lit/ my senior quote is due soon. Do you guys have any cool quotes? Thanks!
“I was drawn to all the wrong things: I liked to drink, I was lazy, I didn't have a god, politics, ideas, ideals. I was settled into nothingness; a kind of non-being, and I accepted it. I didn't make for an interesting person. I didn't want to be interesting, it was too hard. What I really wanted was only a soft, hazy space to live in, and to be left alone. On the other hand, when I got drunk I screamed, went crazy, got all out of hand. One kind of behavior didn't fit the other. I didn't care.”
I hope you know not to listen to anyone else in this thread, so far. They are guaranteed to get you a trip to the principal's office. I suggest you find a nice Disney Channel movie to quote.
If you want to be profound, try a classic movie - something from a Rom-Com or something from the Twilight Zone.
But you know, nothing that implies that you're a serial killer, an alcoholic, or are currently wearing a vintage, collector's edition fedora.
Coincidentally, I am also in my senior year and will need a senior quote.
I want to quote my favorite book, Moby-Dick, is that autistic? Should I just quote something else, I certainly don't have anything good to say myself.
If I was to quote Moby-Dick, what would be a good line to quote?
It's my grandfathers/middle name. I thought about "Call me Ishmael.", I liked it, but I'm not too sure about it.
If Moby-Dick doesn't work, I could use something from Crime and Punishment or Ulysses, my second and third favorite books.
"Look at you. You are but a spec grasping at other specs in an attempt to be the spec that is a spectacle for other specs; in short, you are nothing. I am nothing. Everything we do is pointless, just like words that fall on deaf ears."
just do a blood meridian quote
> The man who believes that the secrets of this world are forever hidden lives in mystery and fear. Superstition will drag him down. The rain will erode the deeds of his life. But that man who sets himself the task of singling out the thread of order from the tapestry will by the decision alone have taken charge of the world and it is only by such taking charge that he will effect a way to dictate the terms of his own fate.
Does it say "Cool Quotes and general faggotry" at the top? No? Not Senior Quotes, or Quotes? Are we /qu/? Does the sticky say /lit/ is for the discussion of literature, specifically books, short stories, poetry, creative writing, and quotes for this faggot kid who is too boring to come up with one himself?
"The Way is without difficulty, just avoid picking and choosing" - Sengcan
"Reason about it and you at once fall into error" - Huangbo
"Grasping at things is surely delusion,
according with sameness is still not enlightenment." - Shitou
Visualizin the realism of life and actuality
Fuck who's the baddest a person's status depends on salary
And my mentality is, money orientated
I'm destined to live the dream for all my peeps who never made it
Cause yeah, we were beginners in the hood as five percenters
But somethin must've got in us cause all of us turned to sinners
Now some, restin in peace and some are sittin in San Quentin
Others such as myself are tryin to carry on tradition
Keepin this schweppervesent street ghetto essence inside us
Cause it provides us with the proper insight to guide us
Even though, we know somehow we all gotta go
But as long as we leavin thievin we'll be leavin with some kind of dough
So, and to that day we expire and turn to vapors
Me and my capers'll be somewhere stackin plenty papers,
Keepin it real, packin steel, gettin high -
Cause life's a bitch and then you die
Stand firm for what you believe in, until and unless experience proves you wrong. Remember, when the emperor looks naked, the emperor is naked. The truth and a lie are not sort of the same thing. And there is no aspect, no facet, no moment of life that can't be improved with pizza.
I don't think anyone on here can quote Genghis Khan and not look like a faggot.
Remember, anon, OP is still in high school, not an emperor of one of the greatest empires in history.
