Quotes and smart people talking

This is a place where I try to collect things that makes me go “Ahhh!” or “So that is how the cookie crumbles?” or “Lightbulb!”. It is also a page I hope my future image will be able to look at with not to much disgrace about my current and past being. So far, my one of my favourite parts is from The Dark Knight when the Joker is talking to Harvey Dent in the hospital. Enter the Joker: “Do I really look like a guy with a plan? <small pause> You know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it! You know, I just DO things… I’m not a schemer. I try to show the schemers how pathetic their attempts to control things really are… I am an agent of chaos!

People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.
A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life…
– Elizabeth Gilbert –

Apoorv Shanker girlfriend, a long distance relationship. –

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
  They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
  And add some extra, just for you.
 
But they were fucked up in their turn
  By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
  And half at one another’s throats.
 
Man hands on misery to man.
  It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
  And don’t have any kids yourself.
– Philip Larkin – This Be The Verse –

“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face.”
– Mike Tyson –
