I am nobody but myself


All my life I had been looking for something, and everywhere I turned 
someone tried to tell me what it was. I accepted their answers too, though 
they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory. I was looking 
for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, 
could answer. It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my 
expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born 
with: that I am nobody but myself. - Ralph Ellison 

I'm happy being myself, which I've never been before. I always hid in other people, or tried to find myself through the characters, or live out their lives, but I didn't have those things in mine.- Angelina Jolie

“I'm not supposed to love you, I'm not supposed to care, I'm not supposed to live my life wishing you were there. I'm not supposed to wonder where you are or what you do.
I'm sorry I can't help myself, I'm in love with you.”
