Slip inside the eye of your mind, don't you know you might find, A better place to play

So I found some of these from a somewhat typically girly emo site online. And emo-ish as some of them are, they do make sense or just randomly struck my fancy. So here they are for you to peruse and make you smile with recognition or make you go "Tch! How pretentious", depending on the kind of person you are. But I have thrown in some Woody Allen to make you laugh =)

1. It's funny how when you finally get over someone, you start seeing them in a whole new perspectiveIt's like you're looking at them through the eyes of your best friend, and you realize, he's nothing special. He's just another ordinary boy.
(I really like this one, cuz out of experience, I can say it's true. Unless of course the reason you got over them was because, you know, they died or moved away or something.)

2. Someday, someone is going to walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else.
( I really Hope this one is true)

3. "Do you know what happens when you hurt people?" Ammu said. "When you hurt people, they begin to love you less. That's what careless words do. they make people love you a little less."
(This one's from Arundhati Roy. Smart lady )

4. It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. 
(Okay, so this one's from Darwin. But  being the Bio geek I am, I just had to put it in. And it applies!)

5. Nothing has turned out as we expected. It never does. Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect. We take what we get and are thankful it's no worse than it is.
Gone With The Wind
(This needs no justification for being here. Scarlett O' Hara- One of the most selfish/selfless, hardheaded, obstinate, stubborn, strong, intelligent, flawed, passionate women to be written to life. One that I could not help loving.)

6.I think when you are young, you are hoping that this person will be the right one, the one you are going to be in love with forever. But sometimes you want that so much you create something that isn't really there.
-Johnny Depp
(Again, needs no justification. Johnny Depp= Demigod. Sex, no naked sex! And on the plus side, he hit the nail right on the head)

7. The expected is what we live for. The unexpected is what changes our lives.
(I'm not sure if this is true, but I like the sound of it. Sounds very impressive and momentous. The unexpected!  *flash of lightning and thunder*)

8. "I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. And sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can fall together."
-Audrey Hepburn
(I <3 this woman. In love would be more accurate actually. Roman Holiday. What a woman)

9. What if nothing exists and we're all in somebody's dream? Or what's worse, what if only that fat guy in the third row exists?
- Woody Allen, "Without Feathers"
(Alright, so the dude is married to his step daughter and all that jazz. Yes, it's a little, alright, Very freaky, but Byron was called Mad Byron and was involved in incest and sodomy, so get over it already. The man makes movies like Matchpoint and comes up with stuff like this. We can overlook all the other stuff, as long as it's not us he's cheating on with the daughter.)

10. Don't chase me, if you're not prepared to catch me when I fall.
(Something that guys definitely Do need to have drilled into their thick heads.)

And with that, I'm done. I know I've been spewing out blog-post with very 'uncool' frequency lately, but I'm on the computer so often these days, I can't seem to help it. But I shall try to keep away for a bit, considering my final end sems start this Monday *interject expression of woe* Right now I'm happy though, cuz I found a sexed up Guns n Roses poster for ze blog, have just brought up 2 bite chocolate brownies to my room and ze bitchy roommate is home for the weekend. What joy =) Now I must utilize this joyousness by studying for the Microbio Lab exam. Oh well.
On a last note, Thanks to Trisha R. for listening to me that day when I first came across said girly quote site and for the long long, and I'm quite sure now, somewhat repetitive conversation. I <3 you SO much baby. Just, in case you DO read this, I thought you should know. Our's shall definitely be the happiest marriage =)


Anushka said...

I LOVE Number 3. Nothing smart-ass about it. Genuine intelligent honesty.

Riddhi G.D said...

I also love. Was wondering how to include it in somehwere for a long time. And not smart-ass, but highly intelligent of her to grasp it na?

Prince of Mirkwood said...

Woody Allen is God. Well, Wodehouse is God. Fry is Pope. Douglas Adams is the cardinal. Woody Allen ranks somewhere in the clergy nonetheless. Have you seen this movie called Scoop?

Riddhi G.D said...

Wodehouse =D Never found better in that genre, don't think I will. Woody Allen is classic: "Don't knock masturbation, it's sex with someone I love." Possibly the only person ever to make jerking off hilarious.
Haven't watched Scoop, but want to. Scarlet Johansson= sexiness personified, Woody Allen= Woody allen and Hugh Jackman. Nuff said

Tangled up in blue... said...

My God, No.1 is like so true!! Its like somebody snatched the rose-tinted glasses right off of your nose bridge..and you stand there thinking, 'why the hell did I not see it this way before? this guy is nothing special.'

And yeah, Woody Allen is right up there for his quotable quotes, no?

This one always makes me crack up (sorry to break the philo-emo tone, but what the hell!)

"Don't knock masturbation. Its sex with someone I love." from Annie Hall.

And you know, really want to shred your guts on that one, but its so true..and its so unfair but thats how it is..

ooh and I love this blog and the kickass GnR picture and everything! I follow! :)

Surreptitious Shogun said...

Oh, how I wish people would stop quoting Woody! Else I'll have to commit suicide, possibly by inhaling next to an insurance salesman.

P.S: You're the only other person I know who's read 'Without Feathers'.

Riddhi G.D said...

@Tangled up in blue- I know I didn't have to spell out the entire name but I love the sound of it- kothar theke? That assuming you are from Cal. Are you? Cuz most of the people I come across on Cal have some tie with the City of joy. And I also follow now :) I'm assuming Neruda, Picasso. Third ta janina, but has personal connotations for me actually.
Matchpoint. I watched that one rite before the 12th boards- may or may not have been worth it, but the combined pull of Woody Allen, Scarlet Johannson who is basically sex in motion, and Johnathan Rhys Meyers who I've been crushing on since Bend it like Beckham was too hard to resist. Unfair definitely, but incredibly realistic. And Im fairly sure this makes me morally bankrupt but I was sort of hoping that he Would get away with it. I have no clue why.
And oh yes, 1st one is the reason emo site captured my attention. I've never been able to comprehend why I was so attracted to an ex once I've gotten over em. This is pretty fortunate considering one of my exes now lives within 2 minutes of me in college.
Oh and thankoo :D Blog be new. I <3 GnR. Was so happy when I found the sexed up picture!
@Surreptitious Shogun-
I spend a lot of time online cuz in N. America they idolize all that is machine and insist on giving us all our assignments/ reports to be typed. Does that explain it?
And why the exasperation? He is so very quotable. He provides the pizzazz to above blog post, which otherwise, would be too emo.

Trisha said...

aoooo. habba habba. wowza bada bing. these are honeymoon bells, by the way. *looks innocent* come may....<3

and i remember using that arundhuti roy quote for my status message once. it still moves me. the simple truths.....

Riddhi G.D said...

@ trisha- i didn't know that bells make such noises darl.
Either way come may..*come hither look*
and yes, ur status is where i got it from :)

Surreptitious Shogun said...

Oh, no exasperation. The whole death-by-inhaling-next-to-XYZ is a classic Woody line, found in 'Without Feathers' amongst other works. I was merely contradicting myself, to show that nobody who has been introduced to Allen can resist quoting him. I thought that since you had read 'Without Feathers', you would "get it". Apparently you haven't, so.

Riddhi G.D said...

@Surreptitious shogun- No, sadly i haven't. like i said, i spend a Lot of time online, no exaggeration. So i come across a lot of stuff randomly. unfortunately all i do have time to read right now are deathly fascinating things like 'Piecewise functions' and 'An introduction to Molecular Biology'. These sort of take precedence over 'Without Feathers'.

Surreptitious Shogun said...

On the contrary, it's all the more reason to read 'Without Feathers'

Riddhi G.D said...

I shall take your word for it then. It was a bestseller in the US so I'm assuming my library might have it. Will try and issue once i return Plath. Not before end sems end though. I should probly get off blog to think of it

Sugar Magnolia said...

No. 3 had made me literally feel those icy moth-feet that she kept talking about - crazy scaryass beautiful book.

And No. 6 is the feet-shuffle-look-around-uncomfortably sort of quote. :S

The Tragic Life of Pi said...

i like the arundhati roy quote. from the god of small things . i could read it 10 times over !

I follow too !

Riddhi G.D said...

@debolina- it definitely is, should read it over again soon, read it when i was too young to comprehend properly i suppose. and came across quote recently and havent been able to get over it
@tragic life of pi- ur name be too long! :P and yay :D i check out urs now :)
