“The strongest love is the love that can demonstrate its fragility.” ~ Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt
"And there it stood, a flower on a rock, where nothing else lived for a hundred miles in every direction. This flower was life, standing proud to the sky, lapping up sunlight, digging her roots into the ground, she was living, no matter what the world told her she couldn't do, she just went on, chin up into the sun -- and I realized that life, by its very nature is brave." ~ Atticus
silence, does not reply; although, it is full of answers. ~ Madalina Coman
“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.” ~ Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums
“What I am really saying is that you don’t need to do anything, because if you see yourself in the correct way, you are all as much extraordinary phenomenon of nature as trees, clouds, the patterns in running water, the flickering of fire, the arrangement of the stars, and the form of a galaxy. You are all just like that, and there is nothing wrong with you at all.” ~ Alan Watts
"Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness." ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
“The skillful are not obvious They appear to be simple-minded Those who know this know the patterns of the Absolute To know the patterns is the Subtle Power The Subtle Power moves all things and has no name.” ~ Dr. R. Hawkins, Power vs. Force
