307 Entries for “despite”

  1. Despite the fact that you are with her, I cannot help my feelings. Every time you look my way, I forget what we aren’t and think of what we should be. Why? Because you are the one that I have been looking for. You are everything to me.

  2. I choose to wait outside despite the rain. It’s cold, and I’m fully drenched and shivering by the time I reach the streetlight, but anything is better than waiting inside, with him.

    By Laura on 09.18.2012

  3. Despite. I have not a clue. Despite my want to learn, I do not want to study, at least these subjects I have chosen. I want to learn photography, but despite my efforts, I’m into something else. Despite it all, I still haven’t traveled to Paris or any part of France. Yet.

  4. despite all that is said about you, i love you. despite that everyone thinks you’re a fuck up and needs help, i love you. despite the fact that i shouldn’t want to be with you as much as i do, i love you. despite what people say or do, i love you. despite everything you have done in the past, i love you. despite that i should be no where near you, i love you. despite anything, i love you

  5. Despite my best intentions, the conversation had not gone well. We had all sat around the dinner table like the picturesque suburbian family that my parents had strived to make us.

  6. Despite is kind of an interesting word. It is the thought that comes before the popular belief and opinion. It flies in the face of the order of things and begs to be heard. Feeling out a new idea by replacing the old and discovering the new. Groundbreaking it proves to be the changing factor of ideas.

  7. despite my efforts, i cannot seem to add hours to my day. no matter what, there still remains only twenty-four, even though i have protested and requested more. i just need them for myself. i won’t share or divide them. i will keep them to myself and promise to do only good with them. i’ll save my evil-doing for my God given hours.

  8. I liked her despite her bitchiness. She had this magnetism, this aura about her, that just made you want to get closer and know her better. She was loud and always laughing, and looked like she was having a good time whether she was working or playing.

  9. despite it all, i am here. i am writing. i have writing inspiration. despite the depression, anxiety, perfectionism, OCD, and self-harm that try to haunt my life, here i am. i am alive. i am free. i am God’s Beloved. i am persevering.
    despite, despite, despite.
    despite myself, here i am.

  10. It’s so funny how human nature can have such a strong pull towards a certain decision despite what the other important points may be.

  11. Despite is overused and boring – actually I hardly ever use it, and now that I think of it, prefer “in spite of”. The meaning as well, is essentially boring, implying only that you’re about to name an impediment of some kind, i.e., implying complaint.

  12. They stared. Not because they felt sorry. Not even because they cared. But, the jealousy behind their eyes told their story. Despite her young age, she had the courage to stand for what she believed. And, them? They cowered behind their upscale clothes and behind the one thing she had given up: their hair. They looked away as she glanced, holding her head high, despite the unbecoming appearance that had taken over her round face. A little, sick girl had hair. And, her? She had her pride. She stared once more in their direction, daring each to say the smallest remark, before she turned, walking away, leaving them to ponder what they had truly accomplished with their lives and if it had really mattered.

  13. Despite everything Maynard had told me, I still didn’t hate him. I didn’t hate the way he had literally minced his words with his large tongue and overly sharp teeth. I didn’t hate the way he loudly breathed through one nostril as he talked. I didn’t hate the names he had called me or the complaints he had sent my way like a grossly stamped envelope with more than just a bad card.

    I waved him away from my table and he strutted off like he had owned the place. It didn’t matter. It was my restaurant, not his.

  14. Despite the ugly,
    Despite the the pain
    I know you love me
    I think that’s lame.
    You tell me you care
    You say you’re for real
    But you never dare
    To say how you feel

    By Simmz on 09.18.2012

  16. Despite my best efforts, I couldn’t figure it out. Despite the alignment and the consequences and the little snippets of conversation. I just couldn’t sort through it all.

  17. Despite all the effort to make this relationship work I just can not possibly carry on. It is physically draining me.

  18. amidst. buts. exemptions. life is full of these… subtle, inconspicuous deviants. that’s what this word reminds me of.

    By greengabberglob URL on 09.18.2012

  19. Despite the fact that I don’t hear from you—I still care. Despite the fact that you’re never there when I need you—I still help you when you’re in need of a friend. I think that is the toughest part for me, knowing just how much I would give up for you, but never knowing if you would give up anything for me…

  20. Despite the bitter smell on the curtains and the sadness of the books, I believe in peaceful place that brings to live all that’s been taken by you.

  21. I had no choice but to let her win. She knew I could over power her despite her well played combo. Yet I was weak against the Champions and she had been trained her entire life to take them on.

  22. despite his best intentions, she refused to date him, she said it was better to stay friends. Leave it alone, don’t rock the boat.
    So, despite her protestations he kept on calling and calling and eventually started following her around the town.
    Enough was enough, she called in the Mounties. They sat him down and had a nice little chat.
    In the end, not being able to have her, he shot himself and died.
    His obituary read:
    A very brave man who served his country and loved his family but despite all the support from friends and family he just could not adjust to civilian life.

  26. “…and so, despite all odds, ladies and gentlemen, I give to you, the first, seven-layers of heaven, dark-chocolate and buttercreme cake.”

    Shona elbowed him fiercely in the side.

    The young chef half-stumbled and straightened, not so stubly elbowing her back. “Pardon me, a slip of the whipped cream, I meant that it was a dark-chocolate and cream-cheese. There are milk chocolate curls, shaved around the-”

    Shona rolled her eyes again and this time, her physical accompaniment was masked by the thick, heavy table cloth over the presentation stand.

    Her student paused in mid-monologue again, this time, to give her a look of complete long-suffering. “…and despite my best efforts, it seems as if I have not done this lovely creation justice.” He intoned, dryly. “As my dear mentor and teacher, Lady Shona, the kitchen fairy of pastry, has deemed my description to be horribly inaccurate and-”

    “-and” the renowed patisseria nudged her protege out of the way, “And that is why, despite my best efforts, you have all suffered in hearing such a mismatched address.” There was a flicker of warmth in her voice and this time, when she rested a hand on his white-jacket, he didn’t shrug it off. “I suppose, I can’t help it. He’s perfect, isn’t he?”

    The hall errupted in cheers.

    The speech was pointless, but the result was exactly what they had desired.

    Seven glorious layers of rich, thick, dark chocolate cake, with decadent frosting in voluminous swirls, topped off by metallic shimmers of chocolate curls.

  27. Despite everything, all the pain, the heartache, the tears, the mistrust, the hardships and the struggles, I love him. I love him. And I always will. I forgive him. Despite all the bad, the good shines through. The laughs, the love, the friendship, the victories, the comfort, and the pure elation.

  31. Despite what you put me through, despite the pain, the heart ache, the suffering, despite the fact that I despise myself now. You have not defeated me. What you took from me that night, the way you stole away what you wanted with no regard for me was terrifying but you have not defeated me, oh no. I will never let this go, I will never give this up, and I will never let that happen again. In spite of you, I am stronger. Despite everything, despite that night, despite you, I am okay. I feel bad for you, the man, the body thief, thinking you can take what you don’t deserve, you’re the one who has to live with that for the rest of your life.

    By Windy URL on 09.18.2012

  33. Despite everything, her breath still came unbidden, her heart still helped it along the way, her hands still worked at the chores ever piling up around her, and the world did not fade to black. Excess neither broke nor forged her, it was simply a fact of existence and the essence of the To Do lists clouding her weary eyes.

  35. Despite the fact that i never studied in high school, i have really started to work my butt off trying to study in college. College was nothing like i expected it to be. Especially since i’m going for a career in engineering. its difficult and time consuming. But it’ll all be worth it in the end

  40. Despite being plain, despite everything in the way, despite what life has put her through, the girl manages to live life happily, but no one will notice how she’s hurting inside. Despite her happy mask, she drowns in her sorrow.
