Masaru Emoto
“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.”
Masaru Emoto, Secret Life of Water

Margaret Atwood
“Farewells can be shattering, but returns are surely worse. Solid flesh can never live up to the bright shadow cast by its absence. Time and distance blur the edges; then suddenly the beloved has arrived, and it's noon with its merciless light, and every spot and pore and wrinkle and bristle stands clear.”
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin

Bret Easton Ellis
“I have to return some videotapes”
Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho

Thomas Wolfe
“You can't go home again”
Thomas Wolfe

Vera Nazarian
“A boomerang returns back to the person who throws it.

But first, while moving in a circle, it hits its target.

So does gossip.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Mary Oliver
“And now you'll be telling stories
of my coming back
and they won't be false, and they won't be true
but they'll be real”
Mary Oliver, A Thousand Mornings

Christopher Hitchens
“As a convinced atheist, I ought to agree with Voltaire that Judaism is not just one more religion, but in its way the root of religious evil. Without the stern, joyless rabbis and their 613 dour prohibitions, we might have avoided the whole nightmare of the Old Testament, and the brutal, crude wrenching of that into prophecy-derived Christianity, and the later plagiarism and mutation of Judaism and Christianity into the various rival forms of Islam. Much of the time, I do concur with Voltaire, but not without acknowledging that Judaism is dialectical. There is, after all, a specifically Jewish version of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, with a specifically Jewish name—the Haskalah—for itself. The term derives from the word for 'mind' or 'intellect,' and it is naturally associated with ethics rather than rituals, life rather than prohibitions, and assimilation over 'exile' or 'return.' It's everlastingly linked to the name of the great German teacher Moses Mendelssohn, one of those conspicuous Jewish hunchbacks who so upset and embarrassed Isaiah Berlin. (The other way to upset or embarrass Berlin, I found, was to mention that he himself was a cousin of Menachem Schneerson, the 'messianic' Lubavitcher rebbe.) However, even pre-enlightenment Judaism forces its adherents to study and think, it reluctantly teaches them what others think, and it may even teach them how to think also.”
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir

Criss Jami
“Love does not dwell on how much one receives in return. If there is ever any balance in love, it is in a contest of who can love who more.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Tahir Shah
“Usually, there is nothing more pleasing that returning to a place where you have endured hardship.”
Tahir Shah, In Search of King Solomon's Mines

George Washington
“[death]...the abyss from where no traveler is permitted to return”
George Washington

Kahlil Gibran
“Yea, I shall return with the tide.”
Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

“Missing you,
I missed a part of me
I shared with you
that’s now gone.

Missing you,
when really,
it was the way you made me feel
and the things you made us do.

Missing you
I shouldn’t be.
But I can’t help missing
who I was with you.

Missing you,
I missed
and missed so much of the world
and wasn’t even missed in return.”
Kamand Kojouri

“When man will return to nature, nature will return to him.”
Grigoris Deoudis

Dejan Stojanovic
“Arrival in the world is really a departure and that, which we call departure, is only a return.”
Dejan Stojanovic, The Sun Watches the Sun

Robin Hobb
“The knowledge that he had left me with no intent ever to return had come over me in tiny droplets of realization spread over the years. And each droplet of comprehension brought its own small measure of hurt...He had wished me well in finding my own fate to follow, and I never doubted his sincerity. But it had taken me years to accept that his absence in my life was a deliberate finality, an act he had chosen, a thing completed even as some part of my soul still dangled, waiting for his return.”
Robin Hobb, Fool's Assassin

Mauricio Rosencof
“But you know, as I do, that the storm will pass
And that the implacable sun doesn't simply stop
When obscured by a dark, pernicious cloud,
Which is why I know I'll return to your house-
On a Sunday that's there on the calendar-
And laugh with you over a glass of grappa.”
Mauricio Rosencof

Mohsin Hamid
“Maximum return was the maxim to which we returned.”
Mohsin Hamid

“When I think of my mother I think of everything and nothing: she gave me everything and demanded nothing in return.”
Joseph Rain

Jaide Fox
“(Darcy) "Why do you suppose she decided to come back…after all this time, I mean?"
(Nick) "The barmaid?"
"If I were to hazard a guess, I would suppose her mother finally convinced her she was on her deathbed."
"I suppose, but since she's been on her deathbed for the past ten years that I know of. I'm thinking Bronte probably wouldn't fall for it."

Jaide Fox, His Wicked Ways

“Think the tree that bears nutrition:
though the fruits are picked,
the plant maintains fruition.
So give all the love you have.
Do not hold any in reserve.
What is given is not lost; it shall return.”
Kamand Kojouri

“We must return to our primordial state of beingness, who we truly are, put our fears and Ego aside, then rebuild our understanding of love upon sincere and sustainable human virtues.”
Joseph Rain

Robin Hobb
“He had wished me well in finding my own fate to follow, and I never doubted his sincerity. But it had taken me years to accept that his absence in my life was a deliberate finality, an act he had chosen, a thing completed even as some part of my soul still dangled, waiting for his return. That, I think, is the shock of any relationship ending. It is realizing that what is still an ongoing relationship to someone is, for the other person, something finished and done with.”
Robin Hobb, Fool's Assassin

“Every hour, stop and ask: Am I really present in this moment? If not, what are my thoughts focused on? Doing this often will help you return to the present moment.”
Azim Jamal & Brian Tracy, What You Seek Is Seeking You

“We're all astronauts, really, aren't we; interstellar astronauts, travelling so far into the blackness we can never return.”
S. K Tremayne

Mina Marial Nicoli
“May the light be in you forever,
May the sun love you and keep you,
May the dream make you awaken.
For the stars love to shine upon you,
And the heavens cry for your loss.

May goodness and love flow
through you once more,
Drink of the light and the love here,
Find that we all need you,
May your spirit come back across.”
Mina Marial Nicoli, The Magic of Avalon Eyrelin

George R.R. Martin
“When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child, then he will return, and not before.”
George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

Deyth Banger
“I can always win in Tic Tac toe for example one strategy can be used serveral times and one moment he will find that I'm using this strategy and in the other day he will forgot aobut this and I just repeat the same - But from this point of view it's kind a useless and taking time. I want to find new path ways, the same is with chess I can win always the same way but one moment it come the rule or the thought - hey I want this to return and I will give you to return. I hate this moment it's kind a noobish or kind a bot way!”
Deyth Banger

Christie Purifoy
“Homecoming is a single word, and we use it to describe a single event. But true homecoming requires more time. It seems to be a process rather than a moment. Perhaps we come home the way the earth comes home to the sun. It could be that homecoming is always a return and our understanding of home deepens with each encounter.”
Christie Purifoy, Roots and Sky: A Journey Home in Four Seasons

Edwidge Danticat
“Those who die young, they are cheated,” she said. “Not cheated out of life, because life is a penance, but the young, they’re cheated because they don’t know it’s coming. They don’t have time to move closer, to return home. When you know you’re going to die, you try to be near the bones of your own people. You don’t even think you have bones when you’re young, even when you break them, you don’t believe you have them. But when you’re old, they start reminding you they’re there. They start turning to dust on you, even as you’re walking here and there, going from place to place. And this is when you crave to be near the bones of your own people. My children never felt this. They had to look death in the face, even before they knew what it was. Just like you did, no?”
Edwidge Danticat, The Farming of Bones

Deyth Banger
“You want to take all my money slow with success, so far you have taken 120$ and they aren't return back and you want more and more and more...”
Deyth Banger
