  1. I’ve gotten compass twice in a row now. I wonder if the events on this site are scripted. Funnily enough, my life is pretty scripted. Which is really odd considering my “freedom of speech.” Compasses don’t lead you anywhere if you don’t have a map, or any knowledge of compasses or maps. Ah well. Far better to be lost!

  2. A gold-rimmed dusty compass

  3. His compass was broken, bashed against the rocky bottom of his brain in a struggle to find a reason for being, the romantically French concept that constituted a purpose. Where was he going, and more to the point, why?

  4. I used to write brilliantly. I’ve stared at this word, “compass,” and can’t think of anything.

    What’s with compasses, anyways? I know they’re useful in navigation, obviously, but what does North, South, East and West really matter? Look at the world from a different perspective and the rules change. I feel that way with time, too. Just a tool for civilization to use to make things easier. Time has no meaning. I’m sure that applies to life in some kind of deep, metaphorical way.

    It’d be nice to not have to worry about time. Or days. Let’s just get rid of the whole calendar. Life would sure seem longer that way. Simpler, too.

  5. they smashed their compass against the rocks, they didn’t need it anymore..

  6. A compass is something that gives you direction when you don’t know where you are or where to go. There are two specific kinds of compasses I think of. The first is the physical kind you use on a hike. The second is the morally guiding one that helps you make decisions in life.

  7. Caroline, sweet caroline
    where do you point me with this
    compass of mine?

    Eyes born for seeing
    a head as sharp as vine

    fill me with sweet nothings
    and my ears with your wine

    By Cordes on 01.13.2013

  8. “What to do?”
    I ask myself.
    It’s the same as looking for directions.
    “What to do?”
    Is there such thing as a to-do-list compass?

  9. I was searching for a way out of the woods when suddenly a strange sound came from behind me, I froze. I knew what it was but I couldn’t bring myself to accept it. They couldn’t be back, they just couldn’t.

  10. I had a compass my grandpa once gave me. It was small and old. I always wonder why did he gave me but sadly he was gone before I could ask.

  11. The map was frozen in my hands. How ever would I find my way back? I would be lost in the woods, trapped here until I perished. I take a step forward, and feel a weigh shift in my pocket. The object that would save my life. The compass.

    By Ali on 01.13.2013

  12. telling you where to go. usually points north but it some movies aka pirates it points to what your heart desires. the compass from pocahontas works with her heart. god is the ultimate compass. i should probably teach my kinder kids the directions on a compass.

    By Rose on 01.13.2013

  13. Knowing where they want to go isn’t a problem for me. I’ve always known where I want to be. Picture a clean, brightly coloured apartment in New York City. That’s where I want to be: home.

    And that’s where compasses take you, isn’t it? Home? That certainly happened in Pocahontas. The compass led her truthfully every time.

    For me, it’s a bit different. I don’t have a compass to lead me home.

    At least, not yet.

    By Flo on 01.13.2013

  14. I drew you a compass
    from my hear to yours
    it wasn’t a good charm
    and you left me in short

    By Viviana URL on 01.13.2013

  15. A compass to your fate. A guide, something everyone wants and desires. No one really gets it, because no one gets it easy. Everyone has to work for the path they’re meant for. Everyone needs to prove himself.

    By Loren URL on 01.13.2013

  16. A journey would encompass
    All that should come to pass
    But the trouble is, there’s never just a single path
    So follow the needle or the moon and stars
    Or maps and charts
    Perhaps your heart
    Or the sun, which maybe you’ve been chasing from the start
    Till your end of days begin to lap at you like waves and waves
    And you depart, or perhaps arrive at your final destination

    By Intuition URL on 01.13.2013

  17. There are times when I really don’t know what’s right or wrong. You’d think there would be some way to break that down to its basic form and work it out but really, sometimes you just can’t. Too many variables and too many consequences. That’s why you need to have your own compass to make your way through the murk.

  18. It wil guide you. Wherever you are, you just have to look at it and you’ll be able to find your way back home to me. I love you. Don’t forget me.

    By Joan on 01.13.2013

  19. I have a compass. It is very handy. I use it when I need to be directed somewhere. A compass is very simple. It uses magnetic stuff to find out where north, east, south, and west are. There’s handheld compasses, and apps for a compass. they are very helpful. Especially when you are lost in places like a forest. Without compasses, people wouldn’t have a clue how to tell direction. So yeah, I should probably buy one.

  20. My cousin’s last name is Campassi, but you pronounce it like “compassi”, not “camp-ass-ie”. It’s must be pretty sweet to have a swear word in your last name, huh?

    By Jeongsil Lee URL on 01.13.2013

  21. We were lost and there were no one in our group with a compass that could show us our direction. it was only after the hotel manager got worried that we did not return on time, that a search party was send out to rescue us.

  22. Can a compass lead you to your Wonderland? Cause that’s where my heart desires to rest. But I’m lost. Stuck in the jungles of hate. Stuck in the sea of deception. Stuck in the valley of sorrow. Stuck in the deserts of death. Stuck in the mountain sides of depression. And the compass I use is pointing me into disaster. It’s lying to me. When it says.go North I’m doing south. And the farther I go, the farther my Wonderland is behind.
    Maybe my compass is making me go the difficult way. Maybe it’s teaching me that to get to the treasure you must endure the worse.
    But it feels like I’m going in circles. I’v suffered these landmarks. And yet no Wonderland.
    I’m starting to enter the city of Lost Hope.

  23. compass! I need some directions!

    By ronny fauzi URL on 01.13.2013

  24. “There is no way that we’re crossing that lake!” Sherlock protested.
    “Well, there’s no way around it and Price is getting pretty far at this pace,” John said, looking around.
    “Maybe we can find some sort of shortcut…” Sherlock muttered.
    “For God’s sake, just get in the bloody lake!” John said as he shoved Sherlock forwards. he fell face first into the icy cold water, coat and all.
    Sherlock’s teeth were chattering when he was able to surface. “What was that for?!” he yelled at John.
    John was deliberately ignoring Sherlock as he looked at his compass. “Well, he left a note that said go north and… oh,” he looked behind his shoulder.
    Sherlock got out of the water and was soaking wet. He’s going to need a hot shower after this. “What? Did we take a wrong turn?” he asked.
    “Yeah, seems like it. North was actually that way,” John said, pointing in the direction they came from.
    Oh, bloody hell, Sherlock thought. What a way to get yourself wet and waste time.

  25. It was about time to get a compass. His internal one was malfunctioning badly, or else it just wasn’t there. About time. He felt directionless. And then of course there were those people who told him he didn’t NEED a compass, there wasn’t any such thing – north, south, west, east – those were all things made up a long time ago when people needed comfort

    By C Duan on 01.13.2013

  26. the direction is either lost or found. but no, it’s just empty and the compass is fighting towards it all. mess. mess.

  28. The golden compass is your faith in Jesus.

    By adi URL on 01.13.2013

  29. It pointed north, though his heart told him what he really wanted, he was leaving behind. He wanted to move towards the mountains, away from her and her smile. Away from her smell and her essence. Away from everything that wanted him to become a better man.

    He saw the compass once again, to check and kept moving on.

  30. I think about being guided. But who can? Who can guide? Yourself?
    Everybody is taking you with them in deeper oceans, in stratosphere, in the darkest place and the lightest spot, everybody shows you the dimensions of being.
    Being guided.
    By you.

    By Marlene URL on 01.13.2013

  33. direction. small word but heavily loaded with meaning. take your life impart wisdom and direction to others.

    By cian on 01.13.2013

  34. Traveling with it would be easy if you know how to use. It will give you directions in where ever you want to go, it might in the east, west, north or south. It was used to navigate around the world.

    By Samantha on 01.13.2013

  35. cuvîntul compass îmi apare în minte drept compasul cu care desenăm cercuri şi arcuri, dar de fapt se traduce busolă. am avut o busolă jucărie cînd eram mic şi credeam că este un ceas.

    By Valentin Eni URL on 01.13.2013

  36. The swiftly shaping sands of the Terulian mountain dunes move in one direction every 20 seconds. They change so tirelessly that one can only hope to sleep eternally if caught within them.

    By Jorge Franco IV URL on 01.13.2013

  37. Compass means direction. It doesn’t sound like direction, it’s quite an ugly word. cum-pass. Sounds like something a brass instrument might sound like. It doesn’t sound like it looks either. People in America seem to have an internal compass, they’re always saying ‘head east’ or ‘head west’ instead of left or right which confuses me.

    By Amy URL on 01.13.2013

  38. a compass should always be old and worn and slightly wrong
    in a wooden box kept in corduroy pockets
    with a dusty smell of matches and the necessary presence of its owner who can discern and interpret its eccentricities
    a compass should be a thing that doesn’t work for anyone but you

    By janepaulette URL on 01.13.2013

  39. When I feel lost, I look to my compass. They’re designed to give you a sense of direction. Unfortunately, mine feels as though it is always cracked, giving me this false sense of hope as it leads me to my inevitable demise. I’m following a lie.

    By Bekka Paul on 01.13.2013

  40. She fell to the ground clutching the compass that her father had given her. She promised himbon his deathbbed that she would use it to find the crystal skull.
