"Scars remind us where we've been. They don't have to dictate where we're going."

Agent David Rossi

(Criminal Minds: The Slave of Duty (#5.10) (2009))

I've been watching a lot of Criminal Minds lately. It's been one of my favorite shows for a few years now. One of my favorite things about it is the opening and closing quotes they have for almost every episode.


I feel I've worn out my welcome on this site. So, I'm here to say goodbye. Farewell FimFiction.

But before I leave, I would like to share some of the aforementioned quotes that have been comforting to me in my recent times of trouble:


"When you look long into an abyss, the abyss looks into you." Friedrich Nietzsche

"Birds sing after a storm. Why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?" Rose Kennedy

"The question that sometimes drives me hazy: Am I, or the others crazy?" Albert Einstein

"What is food to one is to others bitter poison." Lucretious

"Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves." Confucius

"We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others, that in the end, we become disguised to ourselves." François de la Rochefoucauld

"The defects and faults of the mind are like wounds in the body. After all imaginable care has been taken to heal them up, still there will be a scar left behind." Francois de la Roche Foucauld

"It has been said that time heals all wounds. I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue, and the pain lessens, but it is never gone." Rose Kennedy

"Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls. The most massive characters are seared with scars." Khalil Gibran

"Some of the best lessons are learned from past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom of the future." Dale Turner

"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do." Eleanor Roosevelt

"Fairy tales do not tell children that dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children that dragons can be killed." G.K. Chesterton

"...within the core of each of us is the child we once were. This child constitutes the foundation of what we have become, who we are, and what we will be." Neuroscientist, Dr. R. Joseph

"We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered." Tom Stoppard

"All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves. We must die to one life before we can enter another." Anatole France

“The past is our definition. we may strive, with good reason, to escape it, or to escape what is bad in it, but we will escape it only by adding something better to it.” Wendell Berry

"Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden." Phaedrus

"Let us consider that we are all insane. It will explain us to each other; it will unriddle many riddles..." Mark Twain

"The minute people fall in love, they become liars." Harlan Ellison

"Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats." H.L. Mencken

"Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it." Terry Pratchett

"Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win." Stephen King

"Sometimes there are no words. No clever quotes to neatly sum up what's happened that day... sometimes the day... just... ends." Aaron Hotchner

"One need not be a chamber to be haunted, one need not to be a house. The brain has corridors surpassing material place." Emily Dickinson

"He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." Friedrich Nietzsche

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive. Sir Walter Scott

"Hope is the worst of evils, for it prolongs the torments of man." Friedrich Nietzsche

"Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all." Emily Dickinson

"The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place." George Bernard Shaw

"Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were."      Marcel Proust

"I believe humanity was born from conflict. Maybe that's why in all of us lives a dark side. Some of us embrace it. Some have no choice. The rest of us fight it. And in the end, it's as natural as the air we breathe. Some point, we're forced to face the truth...ourselves. Penelope Garcia

"When we were children, we used to think that when we grew up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability, to be alive is to be vulnerable." Madeleine L'Engle

"No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks." Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

"What happened in the past that was painful has a great deal to do with what we are today." William Glasser

"Nothing revives the past so completely as a smell that was once associated with it." Vladimir Nabokov

“It's hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.”        Sally Kempton

I should've done this a long time ago, but I think I really do owe you a watch.

You're one of the nicest people on the site and I think you deserve all the love and praise that you get.

Hell, you probably deserve a lot more hugs than you get. :twilightsmile:

You...are probably one of the nicest people I've rarely spoken to. Granted, we do need to talk more often.

Thank you. Thank you so much.
