    Rainer Maria Rilke
    “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
    Rainer Maria Rilke


  • #20
    Gautama Buddha
    “Greater in battle
    than the man who would conquer
    a thousand-thousand men,
    is he who would conquer
    just one —
    himself.
    Better to conquer yourself
    than others.
    When you've trained yourself,
    living in constant self-control,
    neither a deva nor gandhabba,
    nor a Mara banded with Brahmas,
    could turn that triumph
    back into defeat.”
    Gautama Buddha


  • #21
    Maya Angelou
    “Most people don't grow up. Most people age. They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity. What that is, is aging.”

  • #22
    Gautama Buddha
    “These... things, householder, are welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in the world:

    Long life is welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in the world.

    Beauty is welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in the world.

    Happiness is welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in the world.

    Status is welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in the world.

    ...Now, I tell you, these... things are not to be obtained by reason of prayers or wishes. If they were to be obtained by reason of prayers or wishes, who here would lack them? It's not fitting for the disciple of the noble ones who desires long life to pray for it or to delight in doing so. Instead, the disciple of the noble ones who desires long life should follow the path of practice leading to long life. In so doing, he will attain long life...

    [Ittha Sutta, AN 5.43]”
    Gautama Buddha

    Ayn Rand
    “No! I don't want to speak of that! But I'm going to. I want you to hear. I want you to know what's in store for you. There will be days when you'll look at your hands and you'll want to take something and smash every bone in them, because they'll be taunting you with what they could do, if you found a chance for them to do it, and you can't find that chance, and you can't bear your living body because it has failed those hands somewhere. There will be days when a bus driver will snap at you as you enter a bus, and he'll be only asking for a dime, but that won't be what you hear; you'll hear that you're nothing, that he's laughing at you, that it's written on your forehead, that thing they hate you for. There will be days when you'll stand in the corner of a hall and listen to a creature on a platform talking about buildings, about the work you love, and the things he'll say will make you wait for somebody to rise and crack him open between two thumbnails; and then you'll hear people applauding him, and you'll want to scream, because you won't know whether they're real or you are, whether you're in a room full of gored skulls, or whether someone has just emptied your own head, and you'll say nothing, because the sounds you could make - they're not a language in that room any longer; but you'd want to speak, you won't anyway, because you'll be brushed aside, you who have nothing to tell them about buildings! Is that what you want?”
    Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead


  • #24
    Thích Nhất Hạnh
    “The seed of suffering in you may be strong, but don't wait until you have no more suffering before allowing yourself to be happy.”
    Thích Nhất Hạnh, The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching: Transforming Suffering into Peace, Joy, and Liberation


  • #25
    Carmen Martín Gaite
    “La rutina no está tanto en las cosas como en nuestra incapacidad para crear a cada momento un vínculo original con ellas, en nuestra tendencia a leerlas por la falsilla de lo rutinario, de lo ya aprendido. Hay que seguir dejando siempre abierta la puerta al cuarto de jugar.”
    Carmen Martín Gaite, El cuento de nunca acabar.

    “I learned to love the fool in me. The one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes & loses often, lacks self-control, loves & hates, hurts & gets hurt, promises & breaks promises, laughs & cries.”
    Theodore Isaac Rubin


  • #30
    Gautama Buddha
    “The past is already gone, the future is not yet here. There's only one moment for you to live, and that is the present moment”
