Light up a cigarette?
Cigarettes? Fantastic. Dying faster? Even better. The idea of lighting up a cigarette has always been controversial. Some people love it, some hate it, some just can’t live without it. I, for one, do not approve of smoking. But you know, who am I to say what you can and cannot do? People live the way they want to live. That’s their decision, and theirs only. Yeah, the risks of getting...
we're the pieces.
Norah: There's this part of Judaism that I like. Tikun Olam. It said that the world is broken into pieces and everyone has to find them and put them back together.
Nick: Maybe we don't have to find it. Maybe we are the pieces.
nick & norah's.
Nick: I just feel like she's messing with me.
Thom: Who are you talking about?
Nick: Right now, Norah. No, Tris. Tris.
Thom: You just haven't figured it out yet, have you?
Thom: The big picture!
Nick: I guess not.
Thom: The Beatles.
Nick: What about them?
Thom: This. [holds Nick's hand]
Thom: Look, other bands, they want to make it about sex or pain, but you know, The Beatles, they had it all figured out, okay? "I Want to Hold Your Hand." The first single. It's effing brilliant, right?... That's what everybody wants, Nicky. They don't want a twenty-four-hour hump sesh, they don't want to be married to you for a hundred years.

I’m not one of those girls who can write perfect lyrics. Or the ones who can come up with those ‘amazing’ quotes. I can’t make things rhyme, or put things into sync. But what I do manage to jot down are just emotions. It’s really just that simple, no complications to it. My emotions are what they appear to be. It is what it is.
I want someone to blow me away with his passion. For him to take me to places I’ve never been before. Someone who’ll make me feel on top of the world. Accept me for my flaws, quirks, and all that jazz. A person who’s real, who won’t change for me. Because then, I can love him for who he really is. Love for who he is, not what you think you can make him to be.
