The great writers of the past have taught me some important life lessons that I'd like to impart to you now:
Take the road less traveled; it makes all the difference.
Your conscious can sound like a beating heart when you're particularly guilty.
If you crawl under a porch to die, and don't die, you just may wake up with earthworms crawling all over you.
Sometimes there are snakes in the grass.
The best laid plans of mice and men often go all wrong.
Avoiding a curse/prophesy by changing your lifestyle will not change your destiny.
Go chase that whale. Just don't obsess over it.
When a siren is singing to you, close your ears.
Best friends are not above stabbing you in the back.
Unrequieted love is torment.
You don't have to be beautiful to everyone else to be loved by one.
When all else fails, find a place like Walden Pond for some good ole-fashioned soul searching.
