"Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we're wired that way. Because without it, I don't know, maybe we just wouldn't feel real. What's that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop." - Grey's Anatomy
"Smile away the fear of knowing the truth. Paint on a new face and lie your way through life. I can see you -- the untainted you --beautiful in a terrible way; A smile so dangerous it could break my heart."
"I feel that sometimes, nobody's ever held me down and forced me to cry or made me hug them, or got to the inside of me, It's like I say 'oh I'm fine' and I walk away and nobody has ever said 'No, you're not'" -Angelina Jolie
"There is pressure from within this and pressure from above. There is pressure on our tenuous, strenuous love and there's wet wool blankets one, two, three, laid onto my chest 'til i just can't breathe ." -Ani DiFranco 'Heartbreak Even'
"Just once I want someone to look at me and right away and think I was beautiful. Not after they get to know me, or after they see inside my soul just me. I want to walk in a room, and light up, not blend."
