Sigmund Freud
“Immorality, no less than morality, has at all times found support in religion.”
Sigmund Freud, The Future of an Illusion (The Standard Edition)

Paulo Coelho
“She didn't need to understand the meaning of life; it was enough to find someone who did, and then fall asleep in his arms and sleep as a child sleeps, knowing that someone stronger than you is protecting you from all evil and all danger”
Paulo Coelho, Brida

Gladys Hunt
“What is home? My favorite definition is "a safe place," a place where one is free from attack, a place where one experiences secure relationships and affirmation. It's a place where people share and understand each other. Its relationships are nurturing. The people in it do not need to be perfect; instead, they need to be honest, loving, supportive, recognizing a common humanity that makes all of us vulnerable.”
Gladys Hunt, Honey for a Child's Heart: The Imaginative Use of Books in Family Life

Jarod Kintz
“I once watched several criminals engage in an organized argument, while an audience of supporters cheered them on, but I was so disgusted that I had to turn off the political debate.”
Jarod Kintz, This is the best book I've ever written, and it still sucks

“Was it you or I who stumbled first? It does not matter. The one of us who finds the strength to get up first, must help the other.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Testy McTesterson
“The Butterfly Project:
The Rules are:
1. When you feel like you want to cut, take a marker, pen, or sharpies and draw a butterfly on your arm or hand.
2. Name the butterfly after a loved one, or someone that really wants you to get better.
3. You must let the butterfly fade naturally. NO scrubbing it off.
4. If you cut before the butterfly is gone, you’ve killed it. If you dont cut, it lives.
5. If you have more than one butterfly, cutting kills all of them.
6. Another person may draw them on you. These butterflies are extra special. Take good care of them.
7. Even if you don’t cut, feel free to draw a butterfly anyways, to show your support. If you do this, name it after someone you know that cuts or is suffering right now, and tell them. It could help.”
Testy McTesterson

Vera Nazarian
“A fine glass vase goes from treasure to trash, the moment it is broken. Fortunately, something else happens to you and me. Pick up your pieces. Then, help me gather mine.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Tsugumi Ohba
“There are going to be times when you learn more about the world you’re entering and feel defeated when you see the gap between the ideal and the reality… But that’s something we’ll all face. The people that face those obstacles and overcome them are people whose dreams come true.”
Tsugumi Ohba, Bakuman, Volume 3: Debut and Impatience

Kelley Armstrong
“I want you to have big dreams, big goals. I want you to strive to achieve them. But I don't want to see you beating yourself up every time you make a mistake.”
Kelley Armstrong, The Gathering

H.L. Mencken
“It is often argued that religion is valuable because it makes men good, but even if this were true it would not be a proof that religion is true. That would be an extension of pragmatism beyond endurance. Santa Claus makes children good in precisely the same way, and yet no one would argue seriously that the fact proves his existence. The defense of religion is full of such logical imbecilities. The theologians, taking one with another, are adept logicians, but every now and then they have to resort to sophistries so obvious that their whole case takes on an air of the ridiculous. Even the most logical religion starts out with patently false assumptions. It is often argued in support of this or that one that men are so devoted to it that they are willing to die for it. That, of course, is as silly as the Santa Claus proof. Other men are just as devoted to manifestly false religions, and just as willing to die for them. Every theologian spends a large part of his time and energy trying to prove that religions for which multitudes of honest men have fought and died are false, wicked, and against God.”
H.L. Mencken, Minority Report

Mitch Albom
“The fact is, there is no foundation, no secure ground, upon which people may stand today if it isn’t the family. If you don’t have the support and love and caring and concern that you get from a family, you don’t have much at all. Love is so supremely important. As our great poet Auden said, ‘Love each other or perish’.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays With Morrie

“I want to be around people that do things. I don’t want to be around people anymore that judge or talk about what people do. I want to be around people that dream and support and do things.”
Amy Poehler

Danielle Pierre
“At times, we are the bridge that allows another to re-enter the world after a loss. Don't mistake it for more or its beauty may be lost.”
Danielle Pierre

Deborah Day
“Encourage, lift and strengthen one another. For the positive energy spread to one will be felt by us all. For we are connected, one and all.”
Deborah Day

Bertrand Russell
“The life of Man is a long march through the night, surrounded by invisible foes, tortured by weariness and pain, towards a goal that few can hope to reach, and where none may tarry long. One by one, as they march, our comrades vanish form our sight, seized by the silent orders of omnipotent Death. Very brief is the time in which we can help them, in which their happiness or misery is decided. Be it ours to shed sunshine on their path, to lighten their sorrows by the balm of sympathy, to give them the pure joy of a never-tiring affection, to strengthen failing courage, to instill faith in times of despair.”
Bertrand Russell

Vera Nazarian
“When tough times come, it is particularly important to offset them with much gentle softness. Be a pillow.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Peter Høeg
“If you want to support others you have to stay upright yourself.”
Peter Høeg

Bryant McGill
“The greatest joys in life are found not only in what we do and feel, but also in our quiet hopes and labors for others.”
Bryant McGill, Voice of Reason

Christy Leigh Stewart
“Ambition is a funny thing. It’s like being a Trekkie in that if you admit to it, those around you are mock supportive of your confidence but are quick to call you a loser behind your back.

Or maybe that’s the opposite of being a Trekkie.”
Christy Leigh Stewart

Jarod Kintz
“I want to drum up interest for instruments that are played by beating them with sticks. 
”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Has No Title

Jonathan Anthony Burkett
“For a permanent solution to easing tension and soothe the rough waters of the world that cause people to go to drugs, drinking, gambling, pornography, overeating, or anything that will give them some temporary relief, you can’t beat the support and encouragement of a friend.”
Jonathan Anthony Burkett

Bernard Kelvin Clive
“Life is a wall, you have to climb it by pushing others to climb over and you will be pushed as well. Give a helping hand today.”
Bernard Kelvin Clive

“When we fail, our pride supports us, and when we succeed it betrays us.”
Charles Colton

Alexandra Katehakis
“Stand up for the underdog, the 'loser.' Sometimes having the strength to show loving support for unacknowledged others turns the tides of our own lives.”
Alexandra Katehakis, Mirror of Intimacy: Daily Reflections on Emotional and Erotic Intelligence

Nancy E. Turner
“I told Mama and Savannah about Ruben's proposal. That got us to talking about marriage and we laughed and cried some, and missed Papa, and it felt good to belong to each other. I don't feel as lonely today as I have in months. At least I know there are other women around me. ”
Nancy E. Turner, These Is My Words: The Diary of Sarah Agnes Prine, 1881-1901

Raquel Cepeda
“Support and encouragement are found in the most unlikely places.”
Raquel Cepeda

“You can do anything you want to do, if you want to do it bad enough.”
Tim Carter my dad

Jarod Kintz
“I won an Oscar. I Won it in a raffle. It’s a replica, but I still gave a teary-eyed acceptance speech. I thanked your mom for being so supportive (she’s got a back like a dining room table).
”
Jarod Kintz, Seriously delirious, but not at all serious
