    "Love is a temporary madness,
    it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides.
    And when it subsides you have to make a decision.
    You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together
    that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.
    Because this is what love is.
    Love is not breathlessness,
    it is not excitement,
    it is not the promulgation of eternal passion.
    That is just being "in love" which any fool can do.
    Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away,
    and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.
    Those that truly love, have roots that grow towards each other underground,
    and when all the pretty blossom have fallen from their branches,
    they find that they are one tree and not two."
    — Louis de Bernières

    Pretty much the only quote I truly adore, in all its variably bastardised forms.

    That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are.

    You can not do all the good the world needs, but the world needs all the good you can do.
    -Anon.


    Scared, Cold, in pain,
    the dust hasn't settled yet.
    Pinned in, crying,
    my clothes are ripped, red, and wet.
    Lights, noise, and confusion,
    all part of the night.
    I'm going to die alone,
    give up the fight.
    Red lights are flashing,
    mixing with blue.
    A face appears at my window,
    the face is you.
    You're gonna be all right
    is the first thing you say.
    A reassuring voice,
    someone wants me to stay.
    You could have been home with family,
    they need you too.
    You worked all day at the job,
    your sleeping hours numbered two.
    But you went down the hall,
    hoping your family is OK.
    Now you're here with me and Death,
    with comforting words to say.
    No time for yourself,
    no thought for your safety.
    Later you may think,
    your decision was hasty.
    Get the Jaws. Watch that gas;
    Keep the people away.
    Get his vitals, hose this down.
    Some things I hear them say.
    You stand in gas, look in my window,
    show no fear.
    I look back at you knowing,
    your voice is the last I'll ever hear.
    I fade away as you hold me,
    while holding back your tears.
    Thank you for being there,
    You Brave Volunteers.
    -Ralph Allen, Brave Volunteers
    "I put the fires out."
    "you made them worse."
    "worse...or better?"

    Currently this is... But I know for certain it won't be my favorite my entire life or such:

    Anarchism stands for liberation of human mind and the dominion of religion, the liberation of the human body from the dominion of property; the liberation from the shackles and restraint of government. Anarchy stands for a social order based on the free grouping of individuals for the purpose of producing real social wealth, an order that will guarantee to every human being free access to the earth and full enjoyment of the necessities of life according to individual desires, tastes and inclinations.

    - Emma Goldman

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
