Sometimes its good to come back when you least expect to.

The stars crossed and The Boy wished he could have hung himself on them.

Sometimes I am willing to believe in anything if it means ignoring the reality of a situation.

Boys in bands are more difficult to deal with than one-year-old babies. I've been one of them, and I am one of them, but it is the truth.

Sometimes when it looks like I'm deep in thought I'm just trying not to have a conversation with people.

I'm not just taking trips down memory lane; I'm broken down on it.

Just because today is a terrible day doesn't mean tomorrow might not be the best day of your entire life. You just have to wake up and get there.

I'm in the process of convincing my parents to sell me their house so I can just live in my childhood bedroom forever. I figure it might make me age slower.

I'm a little bit of a makeout king. I don't discriminate too much.

Somewhere I just want to find someone that's going to love me forever no matter what; I want someone to show the inside of my head to. That thought keeps me going.

These jeans looked so good on me when I looked in the mirror I wanted to fuck myself.

I think people who just know me from my band think I don't like pop music. The truth is I love pop music.

I think Kurt Cobain and Nirvana represent this giant wave that came crashing in and turned music on its head again, and there's definitely something to be said for that.

Life is merely a numbers game, a series of odds, and eventually we all lose. To think otherwise is foolish. But if we didn't, why would anyone ever bother getting out of bed in the morning?

If anyone saw Fall Out Boy's first 400 shows, we were the worst band of all time.

I would never come out and say I was gay, because I'm not gay. And there's part of me that kind of wishes I was gay, and I think that that comes from anybody who is constantly wishing they were in the minority, you know, and constantly wants to be kind of fighting everybody off, you know?

Everyones greatest fantasy is to walk away from the life (they think)you lead.

It's strange - there's a public persona of me that does nothing for me: the side of me where it's 'US Weekly,' where 12 cars sit outside my house because of who I married. That side never shuts off. I would like that to shut off sometimes, yes.

Love exists in powder. Love exists in pills. We are all addicts.

But you couldn't touch this kid right now, bullets would have dodged him.

The silence is the worst part of any fight, because it's made up of all the things we wish we could say, if only we had the guts.

What would rock and roll be without ambition, craziness, danger, and fun?

I've been an Obama supporter since he announced he was campaigning. I was aware of him as a senator, but I wasn't as engaged as I probably should've been.

There was a fence and there was this other van- So I go, 'Fence or van? Cause I'm crashing into one of them,' and I said 'Fence,' so I hit the fence and bounced into the van.

I remember my first kisses with a lot of people, and they're rad experiences. And you don't have to really take it to that next level because that's what keeps it exciting.

The person you'd take a bullet for is behind the trigger.

It's time to turn over a new leaf. Fuck it, turn the entire tree.

You're gonna meet tons of different people throughout your life, and it's totally worth it to stick your neck out a little bit if you like someone. Even when you get shot down, it seems really devastating, but it's not in the long run.

For the most part, I hang out in my back yard with my dog, but there's no paparazzi trying to check that out.

It's bizarre to have both a super-connected and disconnected world. Like, you can use Twitter in the most narcissistic way. Do people really need to know that I'm drinking a latte right now? It's so indulgent.

And I could write it better than you ever felt it.

He felt homesick for places he had never been. He missed hearts he had never loved.

He sharpened his flaws and disappointments into daggers.

I feel confidence in myself, but at the same time there's these cracks in the facade and those little things underneath that are unstable.

I don't get on stage and give a social diatribe. I am a performer and an entertainer.

The hardest part of watching someone watching me is making it appear that I'm not watching.

Life is a deep and contemplative story stuck on repeat. love, loss, self-destruction, self-discovery

I'm a procrastinating underachiever at heart.

The Worst part of acting like a jerk isn't when you're doing it. Its when you realize you were.

I like individual scents on a girl, so you always recognize her and you keep her separate from other people in your head. I really love Egyptian musk. I've even gone to the mall and sprayed perfumes and just smelled them. I'm creepy. So creepy.

I am a corpse bored with my own funeral. I live like a gypsy, only with less gold and maybe more curses.

There's nothing worse than watching an old wrinkly guy going, 'Hey, baby.' You're like, 'Dude, that's lame.' It's cool to fall in love and grow old with someone.

I've always believed in God. I'm just not so sure he believes in me.

Soccer presented no challenge to me. Playing felt like breathing: I always had a magical connection to the ball. But it didn't feel like an adventure. Music was more of a challenge and, in the end, felt more interesting.

I think you need something to take care of in order to figure out who you are as a person, and in that way, being a dad has levelled me out more than anything. You've just got to be good for that person no matter what's going on in your head that day.

I think I ended up on 'People's '50 Most Beautiful People' list just because of eyeliner, which is kind of a bummer. But if you do find the right color, it will make your eyes pop.

I'll be your number one with a bullet.

I'm not into bands for the sake of being into bands. I've grown past that. There was a time in my life when I was that guy.

My body is a metronome, keeping time for the universe...
