I decided to stop plugging [ profile] pwnworks up with my favorite quotes from, well, anywhere, and decided to post them all in a single post instead.

If you guys have any quotes you like, for whatever reasons, feel free to hit this up!

Yyyeah, I did have an eye doctor appointment this morning, but he was called into surgery so I had to reschedule. Which is fine with me, because I've been up since 4AM with my head pounding. (It was because I ate food that my system disagrees with. I really oughta know better. :/) At least my sleeping schedule's somewhat returning back to normal?

ANYONE REMEMBER THAT 30 DAY MEME I WAS DOING? Let's get back on track!

I feel a little under the weather today. I've been sleeping on and off all day--I slept eight hours last night, then took a nap for four and a half hours--and my throat is starting to hurt. I see a lot of floaters in my eyes, too. Oh and the cramps I should've had a few days ago? They were delayed, but they finally arrived today. I think it's because I consciously I told myself "mmkay no more school stress now I can relax" and ... yeah, now I don't feel good. @_@; I'm sick and in pain today.)

Anyways, have another meme for the day.

Day 04 → Your favourite book

My favorite book(s)... )
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (DISNEY ▶ your taste in books suck)
Because this seemed like fun!

Take ten books off your bookshelf.

a) Write the first sentence
b) Write the last sentence on page fifty
c) Write the second sentence on page one hundred
d) Write the next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty
e) Write the final sentence of the book

Let your friends guess what book it is.

The books & sentences... )

So uh, guess away if you can! I'll screen comments just as [ profile] escalove did so everyone can take a swing at it. (And if you're not sure about any of the books, but you're curious about them by the lines, let me know and I'll tell you privately.)

I especially had trouble with the last one, because it's a bit ... different from the rests, and I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. Oh and some of those should be blatantly obvious, unfortunately. xD;

I discovered this poem through [ profile] literaryquotes. It's by Denver Buston.

"this is my suicide dress
she told him
I only wear it on days
when I'm afraid
I might kill myself
if I don't wear it

you've been wearing it
every day since we met
he said

In the end, if the wrong in me is that I a woman compose poems, since clearly man have done so and to great praise, what evil is there in my being a woman poet? (Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz)

Recently in my World Literature class, I was introduced to Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. I thought I'd share a quote from her as well as a poem of hers, translated by Willis Barnstone.

I found another poem that's pretty relevent to 2009 so far - or at least how it starts off. Here's to hoping for the best.

Sometimes, Sheenagh Pugh )

When you see this post, post your favorite poem in your journal.

I'm tied between a few poems. I don't have a specific favorite, so I'm going to post two that I really like at the moment.

First, Like As A Huntsman" by Edmund Spenser.

Like A Huntsman )

Now, "What I Learned from My Mother" by Julia Kasdorf.

What I Learned From My Mother )

Reader, you may ask this question; in fact, you must ask this question: Is it ridiculous for a very small, sickly, big-eared mouse to fall in love with a beautiful human princess named Pea?

The answer is...yes. Of course, it's ridiculous.

Love is ridiculous.

"Farewell" is a word that, in any language, is full of sorrow. It is a word that promises absolutely nothing. ("The Tale of Despereaux," Kate DiCamillo.)

Got this for Christmas. I'm halfway through this book. Just as the quotes hint, it's a cute and sad story all at the same time.

Not doing much today. Playing video games, reading this book in between, setting up the new cell phone, etc.

I've tried to get the angel to watch MTV so I can learn the vocabulary of your music, but even with the gift of tongues, I'm having trouble learning to speak hip-hop. Why is it that one can busta rhyme or busta move anywhere but you must busta cap in someone's ass? Is "ho" always feminine, and "muthafucka" always masculine, while "bitch" can be either? How many peeps in a posse, how much booty before baby got back, do you have to be all that to get all up in that, and do I need to be dope and phat to be da bomb or can I just be "stupid"? ("Lamb," Christopher Moore)

Edit: Oh, and this little gem.

Anyway, I'm not good at prayer, but before you think I was a little rough on God, there's another thing you need to know about my people. Our relationship with God was different from other people and their Gods. Sure there was fear and sacrifice and all, but essentially, we didn't go to him, he came to us. He told us we were the chosen, he told us he would help us to multiply to the ends of the earth, he told us he would give us a land of milk and honey. We didn't go to him. We didn't ask. And since he came to us, we figure we can hold him responsible for what he does and what happens to us. For it is written that "he who can walk away, controls the deal." And if there's anything you learn from reading the Bible, it's that my people walked away a lot. You couldn't turn around that we weren't off in Babylon worshiping false gods, building false altars, or sleeping with unsuitable women. (Although the latter may be more of a guy thing than a Jewish thing.) And God pretty much didn't mind throwing us into slavery or simply massacring us when we did that. We had that kind of relationship with God. We're family. ("Lamb," Christopher Moore)
