Emo Lines & Quotes

Monday, March 23, 2009

I found some lines and quotes from the book Fight Club, which is also a movie now which was released some time ago. The author of this book is Chuck Palahniuk,so all the quotes are from him.


"On a long enough time line, the survival rate for everyone will drop to zero."

"This was freedom. Losing all hope was freedom."

"A moment was the most you could ever expect from prefection."

"The lower you fall, the higher you'll fly"

"It's not enough to be numbered with the grains of sand on the beach and the stars in the sky"

This is what Tyler Durden said after holding a guy at gun point but lets him scot free.
"Raymond K.K. Hessel, your dinner is going to taste better than any meal you've ever eaten, and tomorrow will be the most beautiful day of your entire life."

"Only in death do we have a name since only in death are we no longer part of the effort. In death we become heroes."

"....a house full of condiments but no real food."

"This is your life and it's ending one minute at a time"

"If I could wake up in a different place, at a different time, could I wake up as a different person?"

"If you don't know what you want," the doorman said, "you end up with a lot you don't."

"I just don't want to die without a few scars."

"May I never be complete. May I never be content. May I never be perfect."

"Maybe self-improvement isn't the answer.... Maybe self-destruction is the answer."

"The gyms you go to are crowded with guys trying to look like men, as if being a man means looking the way a sculptor or an art director says. "

"At the time, my life just seemed too complete, and maybe we have to break everything to make something better out of ourselves."

"Nothing was solved when the fight was over, but nothing mattered."

"It's only after you've lost everything," Tyler says, "that you're free to do anything."

"You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else, and we are all part of the same compost pile."

"'re not how much money you've got in the bank. You're not your job. You're not your family, and you're not who you tell yourself.... You're not your name.... You're not your problems.... You're not your age.... You are not your hopes."

"Generations have been working in jobs they hate, just so they can buy what they don't really need."

"We don't have a great war in our generation, or a great depression, but we do, we have a great war of the spirit. We have a great revolution against the culture. The great depression is our lives. We have a spiritual depression."

"We have to show these men and women freedom by enslaving them, and show them courage by frightening them."

"How everything your ever love will reject you or die. Everything you ever create will be thrown away. Everything you're proud of will end up as trash."

"One day you're thinking and hauling yourself around, and the next, you're cold fertilizer, worm buffet."

"Everyone smiles with that invisible gun to their head."

"I'm breaking my attachment to physical power and possessions, because only through destroying myself can I discover the greater power of my spirit."

"Sticking feathers up your butt [...] does not make you a chicken."

"Disaster is a natural part of my evolution, toward tragedy and dissolution."

"The liberator who destroys my property, is fighting to save my spirit. The teacher who clears all possessions from my path will set me free."

The next few lines are from the movie.Screenplay by Jim Uhls, directed by David Fincher, novel by Chuck Palahniuk.

"When you have insomnia, you're never really asleep, and you're never really awake."

"The things you own end up owning you. It's only after you lose everything that you're free to do anything."

"I say never be complete. I say stop being perfect. I say let's evolve. Let the chips fall where they may."

"How much can you know about yourself if you've never been in a fight?"

"We're the middle children of history.... no purpose or place."

"No fear. No distractions. The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide. "

"For six months I couldn't sleep. With insomnia, nothing's real. Everything is far away. Everything is a copy … of a copy … of a copy."

"Marla's philosophy of life is that she might die at any moment. The tragedy, she said, is that she didn't."

"First you have to give up, first you have to know – not fear – know that someday you're gonna die."

"The first soap was made from the ashes of heroes, like the first monkey shot into space. Without pain, without sacrifice, we would have nothing. "

Life In NZ

Sunday, March 15, 2009

Ahhh..the nice warm bed and the fresh cool air. I've settled down in NZ now, I must say I'm loving it. No doubt I miss my friends back home, everytime i go to church I realize that this isn't the church that I have always been too. I don't really have close friends.

I wake up, get dressed and step out to the cool air for school. Of course at this stage, I just want to crawl back under the warm covers. I roll down the car windows and feel the strong cold wind in my hair and face.Ahhh..this is NZ. I get down from the car to the throngs of students in their striped uniform slowing making their way to class. I head for mine. During lunch you sit outside under the warm sun but yet feeling the nippy cool air. You hang out with friends at your favourite spot, whether be it the math block, the english block, the tech block and especially the field. School life is bursting with life. The teachers are cool and funny, willing to help anytime.

I finish school and wait to go home. On most occasions I go out and play tennis with my friends or hav training. I have to play tennis once a week, or i'll grow really fat. Chilling out with my tennis mate in the clear NZ weather :) I like my coach too, he's fun, cool and great. I help him coach on saturdays for now and i get paid.sweet. I coach from little kids to some kids my age.hehe.At night I come how and do my home work, with my windows open to let the cool brezee in. Once in a while i play Fred the guitar.

If you've been to NZ, you would know that the shops close by 5-6pm.yes, they close at that time.So there isn't much to do after that. I think Kiwis would normally go to the club or think some of u know how it went wif my first drink). Kiwis are known to walk barefooted, cos it's clean here!lol. I think New Zealander live a pretty simple life, no worries. I like this kinda life but i think sometimes it's better to worry about something than be I enjoy play thursday night social tennis and even though it's with people older than me, I still have loads of fun. I probably see my tennis mate more than i see my church friends. Oh yes i hav my life group (cell group), a pretty fun bunch but haven't really gotten close to them yet. We meet every tuesday and hav loads of fun.

Life can be boring in NZ, but only if you want it to be. I have to say I really like it here, but i definately miss the Malaysian food. I don't have school tmr,yay!it's teacher's only day, which means on the teachers go to i am going to enjoy waking up late tmr.but come to think of it, it's the calm before the storm. I have a photography presentation on wed, chem test on thurs, and bio test on thurs n fri. so looks like i still have to study hey life isn't a bed of roses.
