    “Once in Soho, drunk and alone, coping with the spiteful light of an Old Compton Street off-licence, I stumbled into the nocturnal camaraderie that only penniless drunks can purchase. My fleeting companion, my soul mate for that moment, was a Scottish lad, young and reeking. I told him how I missed Amanda, he told me how he missed his home. ‘My love is like a red, red rose,’ he said, all wistful about Burns. ‘That’s newly sprung in June’, I said knowingly, thinking about her. Then together, ‘My love is like a melody, that’s sweetly played in tune’. We defiantly recited Rabbie Burns’ poem, entangled arms kept us from falling. ‘Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear, and the rocks melt wi’ the Sun’. Just two more drunks serenading an indifferent world. The poem and our Brotherhood ended simultaneously and we carried on alone into the night. ‘And I will love thee still, my dear, while the sands of life shall run’. – Russell Brand (My Booky Wook)

    I love this. I know it's not one that's saying 'go on, you can do it, live the dream!' or anything, but it's just beautiful. I think it just shows how beauty can exist in such small moments.

    "It seems to me that those who in the right spirit lay hold on philosophy have, unnoticed by the rest of the world, been practicing nothing but dying and being dead. If then this is true surely it would be absurd that all their lives they should have this one object in front of them and then when it has come, that they ...should grieve the thing which they were so long striving and practicing" Socrates .

    on being offered a place at grammar school (which is a big thing in my family, the first and only to go!) my nan bought me one of those little message cards with this on...

    "follow your dreams wherever they lead,
    don't be distracted by less worthy needs,
    shelter them, nourish them, help them to grow,
    let your heart hold them down deep where dreams go.
    be faithful, be loyal, then all your life through,
    the dreams that you follow will keep coming true"

    i can still recite it and it really helps me to keep going on the days where i just want to give up
