"Having a soft heart in a cruel world is courage, not weakness. "
"Millions of people have decided not to be sensitive. They have grown thick skins around themselves just to avoid being hurt by anybody. But it is at great cost. Nobody can hurt them, but nobody can make them happy either. "
"Don’t ever put your happiness in someone else’s hands. They’ll drop it. They’ll drop it everytime. "
"Maybe not now, but maybe later we’ll fall back in place together. "
Everything you love is here
"You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back. "
"Life is too short to spend it at war with yourself. "
"I hope you’re living a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again. "
"Trust whatever He has for you. It will be better than anything you can plan for yourself. "
"In almost every case, nothing is stopping you, nothing is holding you back but your own thoughts about yourself and about ‘how life is.’
Your personal freedom to experience yourself and life as you wish is not being limited. "
"We look up at the same stars, and see such different things. "
"Do not chase people. Be you and do your own thing and work hard. The right people who belong in your life will come to you, and stay. "
"He misses the feeling of creating something out of something. That’s right — something out of something. Because something out of nothing is when you make something up out of thin air, in which case it has no value. Anybody can do that. But something out of something means it was really there the whole time, inside you, and you discover it as part of something new, that’s never happened before. "
"We’re so self-important. So arrogant. Everybody’s going to save something now. Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save the snails. And the supreme arrogance? Save the planet! Are these people kidding? Save the planet? We don’t even know how to take care of ourselves; we haven’t learned how to care for one another. We’re gonna save the fuckin’ planet? And, by the way, there’s nothing wrong with the planet in the first place. The planet is fine. The people are fucked! Compared with the people, the planet is doin’ great. It’s been here over four billion years The planet isn’t goin’ anywhere, folks. We are! We’re goin’ away. Pack your shit, we’re goin’ away. And we won’t leave much of a trace. Thank God for that. Nothing left. Maybe a little Styrofoam. The planet will be here, and we’ll be gone. Another failed mutation; another closed-end biological mistake. "
