“To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.”
Criss Jami
Rachel liked a quote
The Painted Drum LP by Louise Erdrich
“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”
Louise Erdrich

André Gide
“It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.”
André Gide, Autumn Leaves

Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another: What! You too?

C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

H. Jackson Brown Jr.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
H. Jackson Brown Jr., P.S. I Love You
