“Life is a malevolent force, which seeks to destroy you, and you have to struggle with it. Only those who are hard enough will succeed. Most people get crushed, but if you fight, in the end life will go, “Fucking hell. This one’s serious. Let him through.”—My Booky Wook by Russell Brand
“As people grow older they close themselves into their own little worlds, indeed lock themselves in! Shut the windows of their eyes, bolt the exit and entry of their ears. They are not looking for new ideas, concepts, powers, indeed they will not accept them if they are presented.”—Jay’s Journal by Anonymous
“Am I happy as I am now?
Am I headed in the right direction to accomplishing worthwhile goals in life?
Am I living up to the trust and love that has been invested in me by people who care?
Will I be happy in one year from now by staying the way I am?
No one else will change for me, I must change myself.
Why should I change? Why should I want to change?”—Jay’s Journal - Anonymous
“Beasts can be beautiful
Dreams become desires
Reality changes with reason
Trust your truth
Man … monster … mystery … magick
Hear with your heart
See without scorn
Love will not lost
Trust his truth
His promise is proof
The test is time
If there is courage to change.”—The House of Night: Awakened by P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast
“The young and naive believe love to be the strongest force in the universe. Those who believe they are more realistic know that a single person’s will, strengthened by integrity and purpose, can be more powerful than a score of lovestruck romantics.”—The House of Night: Burned by P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast
“A double-edged sword
One side destroys
I am your Gordian knot
Will you release or destroy me?
Follow trust and you shall:
Fine me on water
Purify me through fire
Trapped by earth nevermore
Air will whisper to you
What spirit already knows:
That even when shattered
Anything is possible
If you believe
Then we shall both be free.”—The House of Night: Tempted by P. C. Cast and Kirstin Cast
