Dreams are answers to questions we haven't yet figured out how to ask.
If you want to leave the world better than you found it, then use your heart of compassion and your life of concern.
- Sri Chinmoy
Love watches, and sleeping, slumbers not. When fatigued it does not become tired; when pressed it does not work through constraint; when threatened it is not disturbed; but like a lively flame and a burning torch, it mounts upwards, and securely overcomes all opposition.
- Jesus Christ
Don’t be jealous if I spend 50% of my time with you and 50% of my time with others, because you get 100% of 50%, while all the others have to share that other 50%. This is the speech I’ve prepared to tell my wife in the future, when I’m spending a majority minus one percent of my time with my clones.
- Jarod Kintz

Ester asked why people are sad.
“That’s simple,” says the old man. “They are the prisoners of their personal history. Everyone believes that the main aim in life is to follow a plan. They never ask if that plan is theirs or if it was created by another person. They accumulate experiences, memories, things, other people's ideas, and it is more than they can possibly cope with. And that is why they forget their dreams.”
- Paulo Coelho
He that speaks much, is much mistaken.
- Benjamin Franklin
Slowly we became silent, and silence itself if an enemy to friendship.
