Because, once alone, it is impossible to believe that one could ever have been otherwise. Loneliness is an absolute discovery.
- Marilynne Robinson
Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.
- Gautama Buddha
People will ask me: Don’t you believe in God? No, I don’t. I believe in two things above all: Nature and Love. Nature is all-powerful. Love is how I understand the good. It might have been nice to believe in God, often defined as all-powerful and good, but combining the two like that has always posed too much of a contradiction for my poor mind to believe in.
- C. George Boeree
The faults of a superior person are like the sun and moon. They have their faults, and everyone sees them; they change and everyone looks up to them.
There's nothing interesting about looking perfect—you lose the point. You want what you're wearing to say something about you, about who you are.
- Emma Watson
Facts are the enemy of truth
- Miguel De Cervantes
A life without adventure is likely to be unsatisfying, but a life in which adventure is allowed to take whatever form it will is sure to be short.
- Bertrand Russell
Isn't it funny that we never look into the lives of the great people whom we
worship, to dispel the miseries from our life and see, how much pain they have
endured in their life. The truth is, we fail to understand one simple and basic
fact that as long as there is life, there will be pain; no matter however great the
person may be... Their greatness is not in having a life without hardship but
because of their ability to remain cheerful even when surrounded by miseries.
- Deep Trivedi
It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe that lures him to evil ways.
- Gautama Buddha
Too many people seem to believe that silence was a void that needed to be filled, even if nothing important was said.
- Nicholas Sparks
