post some quotes

This is a little long as I'm quoting a poem, but:


"Eve Argues against Perfection" by Diane Lockwood


"And the woman said, the serpent beguiled me, and I did eat."
- Genesis 3:13


"Beguiled, my ass. I said no such thing.
You say I lost the gift of Paradise.
I couldn't lose what I never had.

You say the serpent tempted me to eat.
You omit that he entered the Garden
on two legs and walked like a man.

And here's what your story always ignores:
I had pure gold, rare perfume, precious stones,
but Adam hadn't touched me all those years.

Perfection in the Garden didn't mean that way.
Not having it and not wanting it
was God's idea of perfection, not mine.

So when that serpent strolled up to the tree,
all upright and fine, he threw off the balance,
and I began to pray, "Oh, let him be mine!" 

When he held out the apple, so round and lush,
when he stroked it to a keen red glow,
I didn't fall to temptation -- I rose to it.

I ate that apple because I was hungry.
I wanted what lay outside of Paradise,
a world without the burden of perfection.

Now you call all sinful women my sisters.
I say, let them claim their own damn sins.
The apple may not be perfect, but it's mine."

i mostly like wholesome / positive quotes. :lazeangel:

most are not really made by author or popular icons, but i do enjoy them.


" don't let other people decide who you are. "

" there is no crime in being kind. "

" i hope even when you are faced with the toughest battles, you can still find the light. "

" bad days don't last forever. "

" be kind to yourself. "

" you are enough. " 

" compassion has no limit. kindness has no enemy. "

" you can't judge how beautiful a girl really is by the way she looks. " / same goes for boys!
" you are so much more than what they tried to make you. "


and something personal,

" every time you
tell your daughter
you yell at her
out of love
you teach her to confuse
anger with kindness
which seems like a good idea
till she grows up to
trust men who hurt her
cause they look so much
like you. "

All from Harry Potter books. <333

«Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.»

«You sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.»

«It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.»

«After all this time? - Always.»

«People find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right.»

«We cannot choose our fate, but we can choose others. Be careful in knowing that.»

«Do not pity the dead, Harry, pity the living, and above all those who live without love.»

«Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?»

«If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.»

«The world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters. We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.»

«Don't worry. You're just as sane as I am.»

«Mischief Managed.»

"You’re a witch. There’s never been a time when witches were cuddly and embraced by their people, my dear. Every culture has had walkers-between and that frightens people. We’re wild, with fire in our blood, wine in our bellies and the moon in our souls. We’re the frightening people who talk to spirits in the woods."

Don't you find it odd," she continued, "that when you're a kid, everyone, all the world, encourages you to follow your dreams. But when you're older, somehow they act offended if you even try.
