For the past year and a half, two of my friends and I have been keeping a list of quotes we’ve overheard. Some of them require context, but I find the best ones are better off without it. For example: "You don't want to get in a fight with him. I think he kills people for a living, he's been pretty vague." “No, he’s just scared of girls. That’s not his problem, though.” “What’s in the fanny pack?” *unzips neon yellow fanny pack with a straight face to reveal fruit snacks* “You don’t want to get stabbed? That’s so extra.” “I mean, the guillotine had a pretty sweet pulley system.” “You’re overlooking all the other perfectly valid reasons I’m going to hell.” “Shrek is NOT a folk tale!” “You shake my spear.” “NO.” “FUCK YOU.” “I love it when girls say nice things.” “Do I have an ass?” “Well, all your shit has to come from somewhere.” “the gate keeps out T H E B E A S T” “We didn’t play like the fucking goose.” “How’s your boyfriend?” “Still nonexistent.” I have around 100 more pages of these, but feel free to add your own. If anyone wants more of these, I can attach more. If nothing else, it’s C O N T E N T Update: this had a great response, so enjoy some more. Like, this is the highlights of last semester's list, just to give you perspective of how many damn quotes we've collected overheard quotes pt 2.docx
Another sort of dumping ground for everyone who wants to share that’s hopefully is at least kind of interesting to read! i literally have a list of random lines I have written that are currently homeless/poemless/storyless. Some of the better ones I’m putting below, and anyone (read: everyone please) can contribute lines from poems/stories they won’t write, haven’t been written yet, or have written. —She was born from the ice and thus was made of it. You could feel it in her hands and see it in her eyes. —He found the beauty in the strangeness, since it was one he saw in himself. —oh, if you could see the inside of the mask I've painted on —I'm sliding over your edges and you won't let me go —She was aggressions and plastic chairs scraping along tile and blonde hair being tossed and purple-striped adidas —They say jealousy is the green-eyed monster/But green comes from blue —For when you tear apart somebody’s heart/ You can’t expect to fix it that night.
