Vincent van Gogh

"The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore."

I'd consider getting married if only for the possibility of receiving a book dedication of this variety:

Jon Green

I Love Lucy

Taken after their second divorce, this photo of Lucy and Desi breaks my heart. After years of Desi’s infidelity, the iconic yet tumultuous relationship ended. They remained friends the rest of their lives.

Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”

Tom Lehrer, how have I lived this long without you?

"Take your cigarette from it's holder, 
And burn your initials in my shoulder. 
Fracture my spine, 
And swear that you're mine, 
As we dance to the masochism tango."
