"The sad thing about obsessing over the past and being a hoarder of memories is that it leaves your present day completely abandoned. There’s no use in being a ghost haunting a bag of old memories. If you decide to fight change, you will lose. Because time has the ultimate power here. It has more power than any of us. The second you realize that, the easier and more fulfilling your life will be. When I think about the person that I was, I wish I could tell him that there is no point, that this is a battle you cannot win. But like with every valuable lesson you learn in your life, you just have to come to it on your own terms."
- Ryan O’Connell
"For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again."
- F. Scott Fitzgerald
"The worst loneliness is to not be comfortable with yourself."
"We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive."
Thich Nhat Hanh
"She believed a great happiness awaited her somewhere, and for this reason she remained calm as the days flew by."
- Gyula Krudy
"There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally."
- Don Miguel Ruiz
"Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room."
- Marc Hack
"The sign of intelligence is that you are constantly wondering. Idiots are always dead sure about every damn thing they are doing in their life."
People get Knowledge and Wisdom mixed up too often. Knowledge is knowing how get away with murder. Wisdom is knowing when to use that knowledge or when to let someone else murder for you.
I thought Wisdom was knowing that you shouldn't murder people?
No that's Integrity. That has nothing to do with Wisdom.
"Her beauty cannot be measured with standards of a colonized mind."
- Meshelle NdegeOcello
“Writing is something you do alone. It’s a profession for introverts who want to tell you a story but don’t wanna make eye contact while telling it.”
- John Green
"It’s not the load that breaks you down. It’s the way you carry it."
- C.S. Lewis
"The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be."
- Marcel Pagnol
