"You have to believe love is unconditional before you can actually start meeting its conditions."
"This next song goes out to anybody who has ever been told that the way they think or the way they feel is the wrong way to think or the wrong way to feel, anybody who has felt betrayed by their friends or their family. Always be yourself no matter what. For anybody who's been afraid to stand up for themselves, for who they are, for who their friends are. There's no room in the world for intolerance, people. It's 2012, let's grow the fuck up. It goes out to anybody that feels alone. It goes out to anybody that feels like they need help. Remember to always be who you are. You are the fucking shit. N one can change that - don't let them. Anybody who has ever been made to doubt themselves about anything in their lives by anyone else. Do not let anyone convince you otherwise of who you are, okay? It's something that happens all the time, and it's fucked up. Be yourselves and fuck what everything else, alright? Believe whatever you wanna believe, love whoever you wanna love, dance whenever you wanna dance. It goes out to anyone who feels alone, anybody who has ever felt betrayed, anybody that doesn't feel comfortable in their own skin because of the people around them. Be who you are no matter what, I swear to God that you are the most beautiful people - you are the most important people in the world. Always be who you are. Don't let anybody change you."
"To the world you may just be one person, but to one person you may be the world."
"Sometimes you get run down, sometimes life throws dirt in your eyes and it stings and you can't see for a few minutes. Even after you get it out, your eyes are red and your vision is shitty. But eventually, whether through tears or maybe just time, you start to see even clearer than before. Life is not always good, which is why music exists, why I believe God exists, and there's always a pint of coconut mile ice cream in my freezer."
"I don't believe in guilty pleasures, you know. I believe you should be able ot like what you like. If you like a fucking Ke$ha song, listen to fucking Ke$ha."
"Here's to the kids. The kids who would rather spend their night with a bottle of Coke and Patrick or SOnny playing on their headphones than go to some vomit-stained high school party. Here's to the kids whose 11:11 wish was wasted on one person who will never be there for them. Here's to the kids whose idea of a good night is sitting on the hood of their car, watching the stars. Here's to the kids who never were too good at life, but were still wicked cool. Here's to the kids who listened to Fall Out Boy and Hawthorn Heights before they were on MTV and blame MTV for ruining their life. Here's to the kids who care more about the music than haircuts. Here's to the kids who have crushes on a stupid lush. Here's to the kids who hum "A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More Touch Me" when they're stuck at home, dateless, on a Saturday night. Here's to the kids who have ever had a broken heart from someone who didn't even know they existed. Here's to the kids who have read 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' and didn't feel so alone after doing so. Here's to the kids who spend their days in photo-booths with their best friend. Here's to the kids who are straight up smartasses and just don't care. Here's to the kids who speak their mind. Here's to the kids who consider screamo their lullaby for going to sleep. Here's to the kids who second guess themselves on everything they do. Here's to the kids who will never have 100% confidence in anything they do and to the kids who are okay with that. Here's to the kids. This one's not for the kids, who always get what they want, but for the ones who never had it at all. It's not for the ones who never got caught, but for the ones who always try and fall. This one's for the kids who didn't make it. We were the kids who never made it. The overcast girls and the underdog boys. Not for the kdis who had all their joys. This one's for the kids who never faked it. We're the kids who didn't make it. They say "breaking hearts is what we do," and, "well make your heart be ripped out of your chest." The only heart that I broke was mine, when I got my hopes up too high. We were the kids who didn't make it. We are the kids who never made it."
"Today I felt like a part of something awesome: the human race. I know it can be ugly; it really is in so many ways. But today there was nothing ugly to see, just people trying to be better. And maybe that's the key. Not resolutions and forgotten promises, but instead a commitment to do this year a little better than the last. I'm feeling good about this one. I really am."
"I stopped focusing on what other people think a while ago. If you try to be everything to everyone, you'll only end up confused."
"Ignore all hatred and criticism. Live for what you create, and die protecting it."
"Never be ashamed of what you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that you want, and to do what makes you happy."
"If anything it's a reminder that you can't live your life holding grudges, with hate in your heart, being unforgiving. Life's way too short, there's way too many questions left unanswered, for us to fester and dwell on things that are completely unimportant in the long run."
"Hate humanity? Yup, sure do. There' such a lack of responsibility for one's actions in the world, selfishness, and a great destruction in the way people lives their lives. It's all instant gratification, and who cares how my instant gratification affects those around me, or on a small personal level or a global level. The way people treat each other is truly disgusting, and we've created an environment through advances in science and technology that allows fora very septic society to thrive. And we breed and breed, and all the wrong people breed while all the right people don't want to have children because they don't want to place them in this world."
"In this world of hate there has to be a light. Be that light and spread some love. Maybe this day the youth can make a difference, no more hate!"
"There is two people in this world, a guy names "Everybody" and a guy named "Nobody" and "Everybody" is the worst person in the world. Everybody likes the shittiest music, Everybody is into the shittiest the most vein sense of fashion and culture. Nobody is a pretty cool guy and it kind of makes him a loser."
"Don't let your dreams be dreams."
