    Arcadia? The realm of the infinite? It's a poet's corner... It's not a cult or a religion – it's an awareness of your surroundings; you're not going to force yourself on anyone and, equally, no one's going to force themselves on you. And it's about community and pleasure. It came from a whisper through the trees. It came from a crack in the pavement. It can also come when you open a bag of crisps, or when you kick a football against a goalpost. Even if I was winding you up, it would still be true, because Arcadia and the Arcadian Dream is so deep, is so true to our hearts... It can be as powerful as your imagination can allow it to be. But, it can also be as dark and twisted as your soul... Arcadia encompasses the infinite, and that's why it comforts me. -Pete Doherty

    When I say "romantic," I mean a sensibility that sees everything, and has to express everything, and still doesn't know what the fuck it is, it hurts that bad. It just madly tries to speak whatever it feels, and that can mean vast things. That sort of mentality can turn a sun-kissed orange into a flaming meteorite, and make it sound like that in a song. - Jeff Buckley

    I wish I could throw off the thoughts which poison my happiness, but I take a kind of pleasure in indulging them.-Frederic Chopin

    Too much sanity may be madness. And maddest of all, to see life as it is and not as it should be. -Miguel de Cervantes

    One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying. -Joan of Arc

    Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't. ~Erica Jong

    Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else. ~Judy Garland

    Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself. ~Harvey Fierstein

    Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the truth. ~Benjamin Disraeli

    Is life not a hundred times too short for us to stifle ourselves. ~Friedrich Nietzsche

    You were born an original. Don't die a copy. ~John Mason

    Enjoy yourself. It's later than you think. ~Chinese Proverb

    And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years. ~Abraham Lincoln

    Men for the sake of getting a living forget to live. ~Margaret Fuller
    What is Feeling?
    Feeling is primarily a process.....that imparts to the content a definite value in the sense of acceptance or rejection. In the same way that thinking organizes the contents of consciousness under concepts, feeling arranges them according to their value. Feeling, like thinking, is a rational function, since values in general are assigned according to the laws of reason...
    (Carl Jung, Psychological Types, Chapter XI - Definitions)

    Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.
    -August Wilson

    He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still
    -Lao Tzu

    I have learned silence from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strangely, I am ungrateful to these teachers
    - Kahlil Gibran

    Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.
    - C.S. Lewis

    Write injuries in sand, kindnesses in marble
    -French proverb
    INFP 4w5 so/sp

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    - Emily Bronte

    Whenever I think of quotes I struggle to recall very many and wonder why is this of me, I'll post this from somewhere I had.

    Find yourself and express yourself in your own particular way. Express your love openly. Life is nothing but a dream, and if you create your life with love, your dream becomes a masterpiece of art. - Don Miguel Ruiz

    Segui il tuo corso, e lascia dir le genti (follow your own path and let the people talk) - Marx via Dante's Purgatory.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    Not really a quotation, but what the heck, I liked it

    "Everyone has darkness inside them. Heralds are no exception. The difference between Heralds and villains is that Heralds overcome their darkness. The difference between Heralds and cowards is that Heralds face their darkness and cowards run from it. The difference between Heralds and the cruel is that when Heralds slip and allow their darkness to speak, they are truly remorseful and make amends, thus allowing the wounds they caused to heal instead of fester." - Mercedes Lackey, Collegium Chronicles 2 : Intrigues

    appreciates being appreciated, conflicted over conflicts, afraid of being afraid, bad at being bad, predictably unpredictable, consistently inconsistent, remarkably unremarkable...

    I may not agree with what you are feeling, but I will defend to death your right to have a good cry over it

    The whole problem with the world is that fools & fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts. ~ Bertrand Russell

    Cowardice asks the question - is it safe?
    Vanity asks the question - is it popular?
    Expediency asks the question - is it political?
    But conscience asks the question - is it right?

    There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, popular, or political; but because it is right.
    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Must give us pause. There's the respect
    That makes calamity of so long life.
    For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
    Th' oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,
    The pangs of despis'd love, the law's delay,
    The insolence of office, and the spurns
    That patient merit of th' unworthy takes,
    When he himself might his quietus make
    With a bare bodkin?
    Who would these fardels bear,
    To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
    But that the dread of something after death-
    The undiscover'd country, from whose bourn
    No traveller returns- puzzles the will,
    And makes us rather bear those ills we have
    Than fly to others that we know not of?
    Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
    And thus the native hue of resolution
    Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,

    And enterprises of great pith and moment
    With this regard their currents turn awry
    And lose the name of action.
    Emphasis added.
    That girls are raped, that two boys knife a third,

    When I read this I immediately thought of my kindred INFPs, and so I offer it to you:

    "A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world."
