Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.” | Shel Silverstein “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot.

Perhaps you win then gradually, without noticing 2

Give up all the other worlds Except the one in which you belong.” | David Whyte “If anything is worth doing, it is worth doing it badly.” | Martha Beck “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.

Be whole in everything. Put all you are Into the smallest thing you do. The whole moon gleams in every pool.” | Fernando Pessoa “ Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space.

What was unutterable, I wrote down. I made the whirling world stand still.” | Arthur Rimbaud “Our ability to grow is directly proportional to an ability to entertain the uncomfortable.” | Twyla Tharp “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” | Marilyn Monroe “The only way to stay sane is to go a little crazy.”| Susanna Kaysen “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” | Henry David Thoreau 10
  • 11. “Sometimes it’s a little better to travel than to arrive.” | Robert M. Pirsig “You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.” | Bob Marley “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” | C.S. Lewis “Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not- quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.” | Ayn Rand “Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.” | Siddhārtha Gautama “Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.” | Marianne Williamson 11
  • 12. “Another year is fast approaching. Go be that starving artist you’re afraid to be. Open up that journal and get poetic finally. Volunteer. Suck it up and travel. You were not born here to work and pay taxes. You were put here to be part of a vast organism to explore and create. Stop putting it off. The world has much more to offer than what’s on 15 televisions at TGI Fridays. Take pictures. Scare people. Shake up the scene. Be the change you want to see in the world.” | Jason Mraz “The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day.” | David Foster Wallace “Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.” | J.K. Rowling (Visit UrFox.Com For More Quotes, Photos, Reviews, Entertainment, News, Books & More..) 12
