If there's a thing I've learned in my life it's to not be afraid of the responsibility that comes with caring for other people. What we do for love: those things endure. Even if the people you do them for don't
Love, like everything else in life, should be a discovery, an adventure, and like most adventures, you don’t know you’re having one until you’re right in the middle of it.
The great love is gone. There are still little loves - friend to friend, brother to sister, student to teacher. Will you deny yourself comfort at the hearthfire of a cottage because you may no longer sit by the fireplace of a palace? Will you deny yourself to those who reach out to you in hopes of warming themselves at your hearthfire?
Your sacred space is where you can find yourself over and over again.
I advise you to stop sharing your dreams with people who try to hold you back, even if they're your parents. Because, if you're the kind of person who senses there's something out there for you beyond whatever it is you're expected to do - if you want to be EXTRA-ordinary- you will not get there by hanging around a bunch of people who tell you you're not extraordinary. Instead, you will probably become as ordinary as they expect you to be.
Believe in the wonderment of life, the magic of love, and the reality of death.
Without living, how can you know? Without knowing, how can you speak?
Sincerity is something that you learn by unlearning it
You can take my life, but you'll never break me. So bring me your worst... And I will definitely give you mine.
Taking personal accountability is a beautiful thing because it gives us complete control of our destinies.
My story was not the story of a girl's broken dreams: it was the story of a girl who couldn't be broken.
Go forward slowly, its not a race till the end
It is only you who can turn your dream into reality. Dreams have no duration and dreams never die on their own. We ourselves have the power to bring them into life or to kill them.
It was so risky and so scary, and yet at the same time, so beautiful. Maybe the truth was, it shouldn't be easy to be amazing. Then everything would be. It's the things you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth. When something's difficult to come by, you'll do that much more to make sure it's even harder -if not impossible- to lose.
If you do not have control over your mouth, you will not have control over your future.
Deep layers of context are missed when cursorily reading for quantity at the expense of comprehension - only the vapid are impressed by those who try to squeeze as many books as possible into each passing month as if shoving one more oiled hot dog down the gullet in a food eating contest to prove accumulation superiority.
If you are driven by fear, anger or pride nature will force you to compete. If you are guided by courage, awareness, tranquility and peace nature will serve you.
what's right? If you want something, you have the right to take it. If you want to do something, you have the right to do it.
Progress is a natural result of staying focused on the process of doing anything.
... I’m not running around blaming anybody. I’m doing the work. Which is what, exactly? Letting it hurt.
