Why do you build me up, Buttercup?

Not really sure what made me decide to do this, but this post will consist of quotes. Most of which are anonymous.

"Artists of any kind are the hostage of their own minds, and most of the time what makes their works so great is because their minds are traps for the victim. Too much thinking and imagination, and not enough acting and realization."

"Doing what you like is freedom; doing what you love is happiness."

"If love is not the answer, then I must have misunderstood the question."

"Their words, like the music, had the potential to be endless." -Sarah Dessen, Keeping the Moon

"Happiness is a slurpee with a pink straw." -Jenny Han, It's Not Summer Without You

And my favorite:
"In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through you-- how many you can make your own." -Mortimer J. Adler
