Albert Einstein

Hermann Hesse
“We must become so alone, so utterly alone, that we withdraw into our innermost self. It is a way of bitter suffering. But then our solitude is overcome, we are no longer alone, for we find that our innermost self is the spirit, that it is God, the indivisible. And suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of the world, yet undisturbed by its multiplicity, for our innermost soul we know ourselves to be one with all being.”
Hermann Hesse

Suzanne Collins
“My spirit. This is a new thought. I'm not sure exactly what it means, but it suggests I'm a fighter. In a sort of brave way. It's not as if I'm never friendly. Okay, maybe I don't go around loving everybody I meet, maybe my smiles are hard to come by, but i do care for some people.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Take my love, take my land Take me where I cannot stand I don’t care,
“Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don’t care, I’m still free
You can’t take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain’t comin’ back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can’t take the sky from me
There’s no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can’t take the sky from me…”
Mutant Enemy/Joss Whedon

C. JoyBell C.
“Destiny is real. And she's not mild-mannered. She will come around and hit you in the face and knock you over and before you know what hit you, you're naked- stripped of everything you thought you knew and everything you thought you didn't know- and there you are! A bloody nose, bruises all over you, and naked. And it's the most beautiful thing.”
C. JoyBell C.

C. JoyBell C.
“I consider myself a stained-glass window. And this is how I live my life. Closing no doors and covering no windows; I am the multi-colored glass with light filtering through me, in many different shades. Allowing light to shed and fall into many many hues. My job is not to direct anything, but only to filter into many colors. My answer is destiny and my guide is joy. And there you have me.”
C. JoyBell C.

“Wash: I am a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar!”
Mutant Enemy, Firefly

Thomas S. Monson
“To you who are parents, I say, show love to your children. You know you love them, but make certain they know it as well. They are so precious. Let them know. Call upon our Heavenly Father for help as you care for their needs each day and as you deal with the challenges which inevitably come with parenthood. You need more than your own wisdom in rearing them.”
Thomas S. Monson

Mother Teresa

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.”
Nicholas Black Elk

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“Age has no reality except in the physical world. The essence of a human being is resistant to the passage of time. Our inner lives are eternal, which is to say that our spirits remain as youthful and vigorous as when we were in full bloom. Think of love as a state of grace, not the means to anything, but the alpha and omega. An end in itself.”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

Banana Yoshimoto
“As I grow older, much older, I will experience many things, and I will hit rock bottom again and again. Again and again I will suffer; again and again I will get back on my feet. I will not be defeated. I won't let my spirit be destroyed.”
Banana Yoshimoto, Kitchen

Charlotte Brontë
“And it is you, spirit--with will and energy, and virtue and purity--that I want, not alone with your brittle frame.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

L.M. Montgomery
“[...] I grew up out of that strange, dreamy childhood of mine and went into the world of reality. I met with experiences that bruised my spirit - but they never harmed my ideal world. That was always mine to retreat into at will. I learned that that world and the real world clashed hopelessly and irreconcilably; and I learned to keep them apart so that the former might remain for me unspoiled. I learned to meet other people on their own ground since there seemed to be no meeting place on mine. I learned to hide the thoughts and dreams and fancies that had no place in the strife and clash of the market place. I found that it was useless to look for kindred souls in the multitude; one might stumble on such here and there, but as a rule it seemed to me that the majority of people lived for the things of time and sense alone and could not understand my other life. So I piped and danced to other people's piping - and held fast to my own soul as best I could.”
L.M. Montgomery, My Dear Mr. M: Letters to G.B. Macmillan from L.M. Montgomery

“Do not allow yourself to be blinded by fear and anger. Everything is only as it is.”
Yuki Urushibara

“The soul would have no rainbow, had the eyes no tears.”
John Vance Cheney

Jeremy Aldana
“A man’s spirit is free, but his pride binds him with chains of suffocation in a prison of his own insecurities”
Jeremy Aldana

Bernard Beckett
“Human spirit is the ability to face the uncertainty of the future with curiosity and optimism. It is the belief that problems can be solved, differences resolved. It is a type of confidence. And it is fragile. It can be blackened by fear, and superstition. By the year 2050, when the conflict began, the world had fallen upon fearful, superstitious times.”
Bernard Beckett, Genesis

Tan Malaka
“Idealisme adalah kemewahan terakhir yang hanya dimiliki oleh pemuda.”
Tan Malaka

Gordon B. Hinckley
“I challenge every one of you who can hear me to rise to the divinity within you. Do we really realize what it means to be a child of God, to have within us something of the divine nature?”
Gordon B. Hinckley

Allison DuBois
“If you let people break your spirit and detour you from your path, then you have not been true to yourself or those you're here to touch, those who believe in you.”
Allison DuBois

Albert Camus
“It is a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money.”
Albert Camus

Anna Sewell
“It is good people who make good places.”
Anna Sewell, Black Beauty

Toba Beta
“You praise man who has the ability to perform great actions.
I admire man who can deal with great pain and knows no despair.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut
