And yet to every bad there is a worse.
It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.
Cruelty, like every other vice, requires no motive outside of itself; it only requires opportunity.
Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul
Life is a series of choices and all we can do is make them.
Every ending is a beginning. We just don’t know it at the time.
One day she woke up different.
She woke up with a purpose that didn’t depend on pleasing other people.
She woke up with a burning desire to strip back her life of anything that didn’t bring her joy.
She was done with comparison.
She was over perfection.
She realised that anything which cost her her peace, was just too expensive.
She knew, suddenly, that fair-weather friends, were far too common. That only a few had her in their heart.
And that was plenty.
She woke up that way, and her life changed forever.
The day she realised, that putting the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket, is like throwing yourself in jail.
Life is far too short not to wake up this way too.
So wake up, my friend.
It’s a new day.
“Just like the lotus, we too have the ability to rise from the mud, bloom out of the darkness and radiate into the world.”
Don’t you know that a midnight hour comes when everyone has to take off his mask? Do you think life always lets itself be trifled with? Do you think you can sneak off a little before midnight to escape this?
A fool’s paradise is a wise man’s hell.
Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Do not count on them. Leave them alone.
To Follow by faith alone is to follow blindly.
The past is our definition. We may strive with good reason to escape it, or to escape what is bad in it. But we will escape it only by adding something better to it.
Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.
I had to put down one of my yorkies in May and it broke my heart. I got another puppy in October and another the end of December and Elle loves to cuddle me and nap and Linsey likes my lap. I have become the crazy pet lady with 2 rescue cats and three Yorkies.
I love nature and animals and I like to lie on the grass and look into the sky and feel at peace.
The defects and faults of the mind are like wounds in the body; after all imaginable care has been taken to heal them up, still there will be a scar left behind, and they are in continual danger of breaking the skin and bursting out again.
The world is so unpredictable. Things happen suddenly, unexpectedly. We want to feel we are in control of our own existence. In some ways we are, in some ways we’re not. We are ruled by the forces of chance and coincidence.
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.
It’s not so important who starts the game but who finishes it.
Your memory is a monster; you forget – it doesn’t. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you – and summons them to your recall with a will of its own. You think you have a memory; but it has you!
“Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression.”
Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal.
