  • My favorite poem, hands down, is Dante's Divine Comedy. My favorite is in the Inferno after Dante goes through the gate but before he crosses the River Stix and is about the group that chases the banner but never catches it  because in life they stood for nothing, never commiting to any cause or belief and now are doomed. They realize that they should have stood for something and desperately want to now that it is too late. I think there is a true life lesson in that.

  • "Look, in my opinion the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what-have-you. The right person is still going to think the sun shines out of your ass. That's the kind of person that's worth sticking with."

  • I like a bunch of poems... I don't know if I could pick one favorite, but Annabel Lee (Edgar Allen Poe) has been a favorite of mine for at least 10 years.

    Favorite quote? The same applies lol. I guess "Don't piss me off. I'm running out of places to hide the bodies," and "I'm only wearing black til they make something darker," are two of my favorites. I have a black T-shirt with the last quote and a refillable lighter with the first. They've been favorites for about 10 years, also.
