    “Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
    Rob Siltanen

    “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact.

    Richard Paul Evans
    “I am not a believer in love at first sight. For love, in its truest form, is not the thing
    of starry-eyed or star-crossed lovers, it is far more organic, requiring nurturing and time
    to fully bloom, and, as such, seen best not in its callow youth but in its wrinkled maturity.
    Like all living things, love, too, struggles against hardship, and in the process sheds
    its fatuous skin to expose one composed of more than just a storm of emotion–one of loyalty
    and divine friendship. Agape. And though it may be temporarily blinded by adversity,
    it never gives in or up, holding tight to lofty ideals that transcend this earth and
    time–while its counterfeit simply concludes it was mistaken and quickly runs off to
    find the next real thing.”
    Richard Paul Evans, The Letter

    Anaïs Nin
    “You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.”
    Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

    Anaïs Nin
    “Ordinary life does not interest me. I seek only the high moments. I am in accord with the surrealists, searching for the marvelous. I want to be a writer who reminds others that these moments exist; I want to prove that there is infinite space, infinite meaning, infinite dimension. But I am not always in what I call a state of grace. I have days of illuminations and fevers. I have days when the music in my head stops. Then I mend socks, prune trees, can fruits, polish furniture. But while I am doing this I feel I am not living.”
    Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

  • #26
    Anaïs Nin
    “There is not one big cosmic meaning for all; there is only the meaning we each give to our life, an individual meaning, an individual plot, like an individual novel, a book for each person.”
    Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

    Anaïs Nin
    “I have no brakes on...analysis is for those who are paralyzed by life.”
    Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

    Anaïs Nin
    “Since desire always goes towards that which is our direct opposite, it forces us to love that which will make us suffer.”
    Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

    Anaïs Nin
    “I palliate the sufferings of others. yes I see myself as softening the blows, dissolving acids, neutralizing poisons, every moment of the day. I try to fulfill the wishes of others, to perform miracles. I exert myself performing miracles.”
    Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934
