Nobody ever told me that grief felt so like fear.

Every morning I awaken torn between the desire to save the world and the inclination to savor it.

When you say yes to others, make sure you’re not saying no to yourself.

It’s surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you’re not comfortable within yourself, you can’t be comfortable with others.

by Kelly Schreiber

Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.

I wonder why it is that we so often imprison ourselves in the opinions of other people. There can be no punishment worse than conspiring in our own diminishment.

I often carry things to read
so that I will not have to look at
the people.

– Charles Bukowski

“Grown-ups love figures. When you tell them that you have made a new friend, they never ask you any questions about essential matters. They never say to you, “What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Does he collect butterflies?” Instead, they demand: “How old is he? How many brothers has he? How much does he weigh? How much money does his father make?” Only from these figures do they think they have learned anything about him.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

“Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. And yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you cannot conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four, or five times more? Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless..”

The Sheltering Sky, Paul Bowles
