06:51 pm - i love this.

i don't even care that this place hasn't been posted in for three years.
because i find myself quoting the smiths CONSTANTLY, and most people just don't understand. so without further ado, my favorite smiths quotes, some of which are autobiographical.

"Nature's a language, can't you read?"

"In my life, why do I smile at people who I'd much rather kick in the eye?"
-Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now

"But sometimes I'd feel more fulfilled making Christmas cards with the mentally ill...I want to live and I want to Love, I want to catch something that I might be ashamed of."
-Frankly, Mister Shankly

"It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate. It takes guts to be gentle and kind."
-I know It's Over

"We can go wherever we please, and everything depends upon how near you stand to me"
-Hand In Glove

"Oh yes, you can punch me, and you can butt me, and you can break my spine but you won't change the way I feel, 'cause I love you."
-Is It Really So Strange 

"And if you ever need self-validation, just meet me in the alley by the railway station...it's all over my face."
-I Want The One I Can't Have

"...And someone falls in love, and someone's beaten up, and the senses being dulled are mine. And though I walk home alone, I might walk home alone...But my faith in love is still devout."
-Rusholme Ruffians

"All men have secrets and here is mine, so let it be known, for we have been through hell and high tide. I think I can rely on you...and yet you start to recoil. Heavy words are so lightly thrown, but still I'd leap in front of a flying bullet for you."
-What Difference Does It Make

"I started something, I forced you to a zone and you were clearly never meant to go. Hair brushed and parted. Typical me, typical me
Typical me."
-I Started Something I Couldn't Finish

"All the lies that you make up, what's at the back of your mind? Oh, your face I can see and it's desperately kind. What's at the back of your mind?"
-Stretch Out & Wait (a version that isn't on Louder Than Bombs.)

"I want a boy for my birthday, that's the present that I need the most. Just a boy for my birthday, one who'll love to hold me close"
-I Want A Boy For My Birthday

"You kicked and cried like a bullied child, a grown man of 25, oh, he said he'd cure your ills but he didn't and he never will. Oh, save your life because you've only got one."
-This Night Has Opened My Eyes


"I don't have much in my life, but take it, it's yours."
