“Love is not all about happiness. Sometimes there will be arguments, there will be hurting. It may seem that the magic fade sometimes, but the test of true love is how you hold on to one another and fight for it when the battle seems to be a loosing one.”
"The more we open up, the more flaws we reveal to others, but we trust them to not see us any other ways."
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
“I feel like I’m just passing through life. But then there’s this voice in my head telling me to do something, to create something, to make something, and I want to listen to it, but I don’t know how. I want to be able to say something, but I have nothing to say. I want something extraordinary, but I’m ordinary in every way.”
“There is an inner beauty about a woman who believes in herself, who knows she is capable of anything that she puts her mind to. There is a beauty in the strength and determination of a woman who follows her own path, who isn't thrown off by obstacles along the way. There is a beauty about a woman whose confidence comes from experiences; who knows she can fall, pick herself up, and move on.”
“Sometimes we are attracted to the idea of a person rather than who they really are. So the best thing to do is to be yourself so that when someone falls in love with you, you’ll know that they liked you because of what they are seeing and not what they are thinking.”
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.”
“Almost every successful person begins with two beliefs: the future can be better than the present, and I have the power to make it so.”
“Loneliness does not come from having no people around, but from being able to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.”
“We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly”
“If I could give you one thing in life, I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes, only then would you realize how special you are to me…”
“When you begin to love yourself, and I mean REALLY love yourself, and your supposed imperfections and flaws, it’s hard to imagine being in relationships with people who don’t love you as much as you love you.”
“A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is”
“When you are told that you can’t do something, you want it more, you rebel by reasserting your freedom, and you feel angry at the person restricting your freedom.”
“Someday someone might come into your life and love you the way you’ve always wanted. If your someday was yesterday, learn. If your someday is tomorrow, hope. If your someday is today, cherish.”
“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”
“Love comes when manipulation stops; when you think more about the other person than about his or her reactions to you. When you dare to reveal yourself fully. When you dare to be vulnerable.”
“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”
“Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.”
“He who does not understand your silence will probably not understand your words.”
“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”
“If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve to never ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather. Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side.
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.”
“I can see you are sad, even when you smile, even when you laugh. I can see it in your eyes, deep inside you want to cry.”
“The easiest way to tell if you’re happy or not, is during the nights before you go to sleep.”
“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”
“When you love someone… truly love them, friend or lover, you lay your heart open to them. You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else, and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt—you literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut deepest and most painfully on your heart and soul. And when they do strike, it’s crippling—like having your heart carved out. It leaves you naked and exposed, wondering what you did to make them want to hurt you so badly when all you did was love them. What is so wrong with you that no one can keep faith with you? That no one can love you? To have it happen once is bad enough… but to have it repeated? Who in their right mind would not be terrified of that?”
“One thing you can’t hide - is when you’re crippled inside.”
“My imagination makes me human and makes me a fool; it gives me all the world and exiles me from it.”
“The things I write on this blog and Twitter are ultimately things anyone could say. Just because I keep saying them doesn’t mean I’m going to create something worthwhile. They have almost no influence on music or art. If you hand someone illiterate a dinner menu with nothing but text, they won’t understand it, but they can understand the flavor and appearance of the cuisine itself. Words are only so much. Knowing things by words isn’t all-important - we can understand simply through our experiences. Words are just attached later.”
“Don’t ever use someone’s past against them. You’re just reminding them of the mistakes they made back then. If you watch their facial expression carefully, then you’ll see the hurt in their eyes as they reminisce everything that happened. Never use emotion as a weapon. It strikes deeper than you can imagine.”
“The greatest battle is not physical but psychological. The demons telling us to give up when we push ourselves to the limit can never be silenced for good. They must always be answered by the quiet the steady dignity that simply refuses to give in. Courage. We all suffer. Keep going.”
“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.”
“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
“Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.”
“Millions of people have decided not to be sensitive. They have grown thick skins around themselves just to avoid being hurt by anybody. But it is at great cost. Nobody can hurt them, but nobody can make them happy either.”
“I want to be alone and I want people to notice me - both at the same time.”
“Be smart enough to hold on, be brave enough to let go. Sometimes, we need to hold onto faith while letting go of the outcome. Open your hand and hold your dreams gently, don’t try to grab them.”
“Move as a total being, and accept things. Just for twenty-four hours, try it - total acceptance, whatsoever happens. Someone insults you, accept it; don’t react, and see what happens. Suddenly you will feel an energy flowing in you that you have not felt before.”
“Love is power. Give it to another and you will bring bliss. Friends, criminals, strangers, and even yourself. All is reborn when you forgive, love, and understand.”
"Life is like this town… cutting through the rocks to make pathways. We can’t get to the top without a flame of hope in our hearts. Only those strong enough survive. It’s nature’s way."
“You are always searching for answers to your questions. That is because you believe they mean something to you. As long as you keep desiring answers, your life will remain a meaningful one. You are constantly renewing yourself by thinking and feeling things.”
“The imperial soldiers simply fight by their emperor’s order. The pirates steal others’ belongings because they desire them.
“The sign of a beautiful person is he always sees the beauty in others.”
“If someone wants to be a part of your life, they’ll make an effort to be in it. So don’t bother reserving a place in your heart for someone who doesn’t make an effort to stay.”
“Stop hating yourself for everything you aren’t. Start loving yourself for everything that you are"
“Don’t miss all the beautiful colors of the rainbow looking for that pot of gold.”
“But we get busy. Too busy scrolling our phone screens, watching TV, catching up with all the mundane shit in life and we forget about our dreams. We say things like “I don’t have time,” and when we get frustrated that we don’t have enough time, we assuage that feeling of impotence by buying shit we don’t need, which we think will make us feel better. Granite countertops, leather sofas, sometimes skis, climbing gear or bikes we never use. Maybe that’s because we’re scared of whatever it is we’ve been thinking about for so long, or maybe it’s easier to buy something instead of doing something. Or maybe something we saw told us our dream was something different, and we bought into that.”
“Life feels very lonely when you don’t even know yourself.”
“The greatest prison that people live in is the fear of what other people think.”
“Other people’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality.”
"I wonder what happiness could look like if we could give it a form..? The shape of happiness might resemble a glass.. Even though you don't usually notice it, it's still definitely there...
"In this world, some people will always throw stones in your path. It depends on you what you make from them: A wall or a Bridge."
"Words do not express thoughts very well. They always become a little different immediately after they are expressed, a little distorted, a little foolish."
"Don't worry about what other people say behind your back, they are the people who are finding faults in your life instead of fixing the faults in their own life."
“I’m a person that has high highs and low lows … A lot of things make me sad. Sometimes it’s almost easier to be sad. But you end up finding a balance and I think that as I get older I am learning what I can do for myself to make me happy.”
"To be honest with you, I don't have the words to make you feel better but I do have the arms to give you a hug, ears to listen to whatever you want to talk about, and I have the heart... A heart that's aching to see you smile again."
"You must be the change you want to see in the world."
“The hardest part about walking away from someone is the part where you realize that, no matter how slowly you go, they will never run after you.”
"Be brave and take risks because NOTHING can substitute experience."
"Some people come in your life as blessings, Others come in as Lessons."
"The only thing limiting us in our life is our belief that there are limits and boundaries that we shouldn't cross."
“Don’t explain. People only hear what they want to hear.”
“Listen closely: the only time it’s too late to change yourself is when you’re dead. Until then, you’re simply making excuses or lying to yourself.”
“We are all in prison. I built mine myself, but that doesn’t make it any easier to get out of.”
“One of the cruelest things you can do to another person is pretend you care about them more than you really do.”
“Anyone can give up on me, but I won’t give up on myself.”
"Our lives are books and each day is a page. We can't erase what has already been written but we can always try to make the next page better."
“Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed.”
“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically, to say “no” to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside. The enemy of the “best” is often the “good.”
“You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place. Like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again.”
“We cease loving ourselves if no-one loves us.”
“Just remember that sometimes the way you think about a person isn’t the way they actually are.”
“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch.”
“You can seek the advice of others. Surround yourself with trusted advisors. But in the end the decision is always yours and yours alone.”
“There’s no need to become a hero. It’s okay to not need to be considered worthy by someone else. That causes you to blame yourself and blame other people… and because of that, become jealous of some other people… but you know… that’s not the way it is. Even if no one else considers you worthy, it’s okay to just become someone who can be proud of yourself! That’s because…you yourself are your biggest supporter! If you can come to like yourself… that “love” will continue to support you for the rest of your life.”
“Those who really love, love in silence, with deeds and not in words.”
“If you look close enough to the world around you, you might find someone like you. Someone trying to find their way. Someone trying to find theirself. Sometimes, it seems like you are the only one in the world who’s struggling, who’s frustrated, unsatisfied, barely getting by. But that feeling’s a lie.”
“Everything is changing. Day by day, we don’t notice, but just look back over the past year and realize everything has changed. People that you thought were going to be there forever, aren’t, and people you never imagined you’d be speaking to, are now some of your closest friends. Life makes little sense, and the more we grow, the less sense it will make.”
“If you know yourself, then you’ll not be harmed by what is said about you.”
“Sometimes it seems safer to hold it all in, where the only person who can judge you is yourself.”
“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”
“Sometimes, it’s easier to tell a stranger something very personal. Its like there’s less risk, opening yourself up to someone who doesn’t know you.”
“If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is compromise.”
“You must make the decision to move on. It won’t happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say ” I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.”
“I’m the kind of person who likes to be by himself. To put a finer point on it, I’m the type of person who doesn’t find it painful to be alone. I find spending an hour or two every day running alone, not speaking to anyone, as well as four or five hours alone at my desk, to be neither difficult nor boring. I’ve had this tendency ever since I was young, when, given a choice, I much preferred reading books on my own or concentrating on listening to music over being with someone else. I could always think of things to do by myself.”
“When we place more value on what other people think of us than on what we think of ourselves, it’s a formula for misery.”
“No matter how carefully you choose your words, they’ll always end up being twisted by others.”
“Normality is a paved road.It is comfortable to walk but no flowers grow on it.”
“Sometimes I wonder if my whole life will pass by this way: me waiting in the shadows, waiting for something to happen.”
“If somebody likes me, I want them to like the real me, not what they think I am. And I don’t want them to carry it around inside. I want them to show me, so I can feel it, too. I want them to be able to do whatever they want around me.”
“Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us, not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal. The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are. We are all hungry for this other silence. It is hard to find. In its presence we can remember something beyond the moment, a strength on which to build a life. Silence is a place of great power and healing.”
“Stop being tormented by everyone else’s reaction to you.”
“I might appear confident and chatty, but I spend most of my time laughing at jokes I don’t find funny, saying things I don’t really mean - because at the end of the day that’s what we’re all trying to do: fit in, one way or another, desperately trying to pretend we’re all the same.”
how can we fail when we do what we love?
