This is why we stay alive. Think about it. It's not what we've done, it's what we might do, it's not where we've failed, it's where we might at last succeed, it's not the previous page in the book that holds the beauty and the hope.

Other website she works for:

I've thought about it a lot and I concluded that this is what what innocence is all about: the feeling that you are new to things and all the enthusiasm and romanticism in approach that this results in. I have also concluded that this is a situation in which you can find yourself forever.

If you're any sort of hero, you'll be fighting for what you believe in. You'll get tired, and worn down by the world. There's always somebody to tell you you're wrong....You can't always save the world. But you're a hero, so that won't stop you trying.


Rachel Queen

The things she's said

Favourite Bands:
           Belle & Sebastian

There are a number of things that I am sure of in life:
"1) I will win the lottery one day
2) The whole world should be forced to listen to Belle and Sebastian and watch Dave Gorman daily.
3) If people could be just a little happier, the world would be a better place."

"There's no shame in wanting happiness. Its just best not to look for it in a glass containing ANYTHING that happens to be made from distilled rocket fuel. Take it from me.

The girl who we love for her enthusiasm

The things he's said

"If I could meet just one girl who wore a blue beret, somehow it would all turn out okay. I've never wanted much from life, but suddenly today I found out that this one thing I do want."

When making claims that are generally believed or made by those in power almost no-one will ever ask for any evidence. When making claims that contradict those in power or widely held beliefs about 'the facts' no amount of evidence will ever be sufficient to convince many people.

"I actually feel sorry for people who haven't had their heart broken, these are the times when you feel most alive. When you are completely and utterly in awe of someone, or totally devastated by them"
