Nobody ever lives their life all the way up except bullfighters.
The only person who can pull me down is myself, and I'm not going to let myself pull me down anymore.
Life has become immeasurably better since I have been forced to stop taking it seriously.
Waking At NightThe blue river is grey at morningand evening. There is twilightat dawn and dusk. I lie in the darkwondering if this quiet in me nowis a beginning or an end.
If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life; it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.
Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.
Everything you want in life is a relationship away.
I was blind and heart broken and didn't want to do anything and Gus burst into my room and shouted, "I have wonderful news!" And I was like, "I don't really want to hear wonderful news right now," and Gus said, "This is wonderful news you want to hear," and I asked him, "Fine, what is it?" and he said, "You are going to live a good and long life filled with great and terrible moments that you cannot even imagine yet!
Everything will be alright in the end so if it is not alright it is not the end.
I don't know why we are here, but I'm pretty sure that it is not in order to enjoy ourselves.
I have written it before and am not ashamed to write it again. Without Wodehouse I am not sure that I would be a tenth of what I am today -- whatever that may be. In my teenage years, his writings awoke me to the possibilities of language. His rhythms, tropes, tricks and mannerisms are deep within me.But more than that, he taught me something about good nature. It is enough to be benign, to be gentle, to be funny, to be kind.
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."[Meditations Divine and Moral]
The reason many people in our society are miserable, sick, and highly stressed is because of an unhealthy attachment to things they have no control over.
Life seems to go on without effort when I am filled with music.
You are not the victim of the world, but rather the master of your own destiny. It is your choices and decisions that determine your destiny.
I want an infinitely blank book and the rest of time......why didn't I learn to treat everything like it was the last time, my greatest regret is how much I believed in the future.
People were always getting ready for tomorrow. I didn't believe in that. Tomorrow wasn't getting ready for them. It didn't even know they were there.
The overman...Who has organized the chaos of his passions, given style to his character, and become creative. Aware of life's terrors, he affirms life without resentment.
There's no need to wait for the bad things and bullshit to be over. Change now. Love now. Live now. Don't wait for people to give you permission to live, because they won't.
Killers aren't always assassins. Sometimes, they don't even have blood on their hands.
Happiness was but the occasional episode in a general drama of pain.
Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others.
Life is a long lesson in humility.
Art and life are subjective. Not everybody's gonna dig what I dig, but I reserve the right to dig it.
I wanted to say goodbye to someone, and have someone say goodbye to me. The goodbyes we speak and the goodbyes we hear are the goodbyes that tell us weÂ´re still alive.
You have lost your reason and taken the wrong path. You have taken lies for truth, and hideousness for beauty. You would marvel if, owing to strange events of some sorts, frogs and lizards suddenly grew on apple and orange trees instead of fruit, or if roses began to smell like a sweating horse; so I marvel at you who exchange heaven for earth. I don't want to understand you.
You can get all A's and still flunk life.
Our lives are not as limited as we think they are; the world is a wonderfully weird place; consensual reality is significantly flawed; no institution can be trusted, but love does work; all things are possible; and we all could be happy and fulfilled if we only had the guts to be truly free and the wisdom to shrink our egos and quit taking ourselves so damn seriously.
You can't just plan a moment when things get back on track, just as you can't plan the moment you lose your way in the first place.
You can never know about about your own destiny: are the people you meet there to play a part on your oun destiny, or do you exist just to play a role in theirs?
You don't get to pick where you're from, but you always have control of where you're going.
It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.
I think there is a song out there to describe just about any situation.
It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
No single event can awaken within us a stranger whose existence we had never suspected. To live is to be slowly born.
People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and ignorance. And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is a spiritual and emotional one. Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action.
A craven can be as brave as any man, when there is nothing to fear. And we all do our duty, when there is no cost to it. How easy it seems then, to walk the path of honor. Yet soon or late in every man's life comes a day when it is not easy, a day when he must choose. (Maester Aemon)
She looked out the window; in her eyes was the light that you see only in children arriving at a new place, or in young people still open to new influences, still curious about the world because they have not yet been scarred by life.
I'm not crying because of you; you're not worth it. I'm crying because my delusion of who you were was shattered by the truth of who you are.
My only advice is to stay aware, listen carefully, and yell for help if you need it.
I envy people that know love. That have someone who takes them as they are.
Do not let the memories of your past limit the potential of your future. There are no limits to what you can achieve on your journey through life, except in your mind.
Life goes on. Get over it. You're still young. It'll get better. Blah, Blah, Blah
The world's a puzzle; no need to make sense out of it." - Socrates
I should have learned this, she thought. I wanted to learn fire, and pain, but I should have learned people.
I have accepted fear as part of life ' specifically the fear of change... I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back....
To know a species, look at its fears. To know yourself, look at your fears. Fear in itself is not important, but fear stands there and points you in the direction of things that are important. Don't be afraid of your fears, they're not there to scare you; they're there to let you know that something is worth it.
I hate to say it, but shit really does happen. You just have to get over it. Beat the hell out of it by doing things that make you happy.
