    As the title says - a quote that sums up your current mood/day/feelings.

    "How are things going? She'll say and he'll say Fine, and it could mean anything. She doesn't even know what things are, any more, those things that are supposed to be going so fine."

    Atwood - The Robber Bride.

    "Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.“

    —Ralph Waldo Emerson

    I had a tough day.. didn't do as well on a quiz as I thought I did, kept beating myself up for not studying harder, had a long day at work and kind of binged my way through my fridge like a starved animal. Tomorrow is a new day.

    I write fanfiction, and have been opening each chapter of a particular story with a quote, so I have quite a list. My personal favorite for right now (though it hasn't quite fit into the story yet).

    This is the world. Beautiful and Terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid.

    Blue moon, you saw me standin' alone,
    Without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own
    Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for
    You heard me sayin' a prayer for
    Someone I really could care for...

    And then there suddenly appeared before me
    The only one my arms will ever hold
    I heard somebody whisper "please adore me"
    And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold....


    Blue Moon, 30's Jazz standard.

    Tu t'en vas à la dérive
    Sur la rivière du souvenir
    Et moi, courant sur la rive,
    Je te crie de revenir
    Mais, lentement, tu t'éloignes
    Et dans ma course éperdue,
    Peu à peu, je te regagne
    Un peu de terrain perdu.

    De temps en temps, tu t'enfonces
    Dans le liquide mouvant
    Ou bien, frôlant quelques ronces,
    Tu hésites et tu m'attends
    En te cachant la figure
    Dans ta robe retroussée,
    De peur que ne te défigurent
    Et la honte et les regrets.

    Tu n'es plus qu'une pauvre épave,
    Chienne crevée au fil de l'eau
    Mais je reste ton esclave
    Et plonge dans le ruisseau
    Quand le souvenir s'arrête
    Et l'océan de l'oubli,
    Brisant nos cœurs et nos têtes,
    A jamais, nous réunit.


    La Noyee, Serge Gainsbourg.

    French speakers can decipher if they wish - I won't translate it in full because too much is lost. But the jist of the last verse is important (at least to me);

    "And we dive into the rushes, when the remembrance stops and the ocean of forget begins, we only break our hearts and heads, never to be reunited..."

    "一天一點傷心過 這一百數十晚
    大概也夠我 送我來回地獄又折返人間"

    心淡
    Dulled Heart

    A day of hurt, abit of pain; we count up to a hundred nights.
    Enough to plunge me into hell then bring me back

    Again - it loses alot in translation but the jist is there. Those proficient in Chinese can appreciate.

    I taught this song character for character to Emii. She couldn't speak or understand much Chinese when we first met - I have this habit of switching back and forth between Cantonese and English when speaking to friends or family - even with caucasian friends it happens lol. I got irritated with Emii and said that I would teach her so that we could communicate in more creative manners; English one way and Canto the other or vice versa or just everything mixed up. "It's IN you! it'll flow naturally!" I remember telling her.

    She was 80% fluent as of this year. The first time we went out to Karaoke together I picked this song out and sang it while she mumbled along.

    "Uh-dim-um-tien-mum-bum-boom-bak-so-sap-man-an..." she sang. I painstakingly went through the proper pronunciation of the lyrics with her probably over 50 times over the course of a few months. It's a meaningful song on many levels - d@mn I miss you Emii <3.

    "Don't give up" 爭氣. More relevant to me and my situation than Kate Bush's version....

    難得 別離後 仍舊早睡早起 都夠運
    而你卻 算著我 滴過幾滴眼 才甘心
    道行高深 算你好心地 不願傷透 一個人
    我沒良心 即使能恨你 但放手

    * 沒有空 掛念你 若我口齒 極伶俐
    大概早 已經單打單到你 受不起
    難道你 捱不起 你最好 好在你
    仍然期望 愛人變知己

    沒有心機 痛恨你 做你知己 沒名利
    大個女 縱使失戀 工作至上 才爭氣
    願諒我小氣 前途現在排第尾
    未能拿出空檔來受氣 *

    Hu....... Hu......
    別人好心 勉強說分手都是好友
    我自今 只得你這敵人
    如何渡過 下半生

    沒有空 掛念你 若我口齒 極伶俐
    大概早 已經單打單到你 受不起
    難道你 捱不起 我要玩 不受理
    沒人纏住 你是好福氣

    如果 天都迫我爭氣
    離去 大概不椰
    我退出 但求大家歡喜
    無謂到最後 不三不

    It's fortunate that even after your departure
    I still sleep and wake early, there's enough luck.
    And you are only content after counting the number of tears I've shed
    You're good in hiding your true feelings, at least you're nice enough
    To not break my heart totally
    I have no conscience, even if I hate you, I can't let go

    *I don't have the time to miss you
    If my speaking skills were really good,
    I would trade insults with you until you couldn't take it anymore!
    Are you really not able to endure it any longer?
    You're the best because you still hope that lovers can become friends
    I don't have the disposition to hate you
    Being your best friend doesn't mean anything
    I'm a big girl now, even if my heart gets broken, I will never give up in my work
    Forgive me for being so unforgiving, the present is the least of my worries
    Not yet able to take out some time to let you take out your anger on me

    Don't pretend to be nice and
    Force yourself to say that we will be good friends even after the breakup
    Up to this day, I only have you as an enemy
    How am I suppose to live the rest of my life?

    I don't have the time to miss you
    If my speaking skills were really good
    I would trade insults with you until you couldn't take it anymore
    Are you really not able to endure it any longer?
    I want to play, I won't accept you
    Having no one to bother you is your luck

    If, heaven forces me to never give up
    Even after your depart, I don't think I will perish
    I retreat, in hopes that everybody will be happy
    So that in the end, things wouldn't be so uncertain

    "You got one life. Live it. Follow your dreams, quit your job, drop out of school, tell your boyfriend that he's lazy and walk out the door. This is your time. This is your life. Dream as big as you want to. It's the cheapest thing you'll ever do." ~Jared Leto, singer/guitarist of 30 Seconds To Mars

    That's my life quote so it's the quote of the moment too...
