You know what I like? Quotes.

Because I'm procrastinating doing homework  Because I want to get more posts in before May is over  Because I want to share these quotes that I absolutely adore with you, I am posting this. I don't think there will really be any hilarity in this post, but don't let that stop you. I like these quotes for a reason and they really hit home with me. Wasn't that a deep statement? Just kidding, but yes, yes it was. So I say read these quotes! You won't regret it.

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square hole. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do." -Apple Computer Inc.
“A pessimist only sees the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides and shrugs; an optimist doesn't see the clouds at all--he's walking on them.” -Leonard Levinson (he's a favorite of mine)
"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world know peace." 
"The story of life is quicker than the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello, goodbye.” -Jimi Hendrix

I will progressively update this like a crazy person. Because I love quotes for some reason. Plus, I need somewhere to write them down and I like to share them with people. And guess what? If you've read this far, that means you're awesome. So you get to read one of my favorite poems! Huzzah! (Okay, so it's not the whole poem, but I don't care. This is still my favorite)
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...
by Lord Byron.  

UPDATE: I have found another favorite poem. It's called "No Difference" by Shel Silverstein. I read it in sixth grade for a project and forgot about it. Le sigh. Good times.  

 UPDATE: I found another poem that I want to marry. "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" by Ribert Frost (I reallyreallyreally like his writing a lot. Like, A LOT)
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
