    Rainer Maria Rilke
    “I love the dark hours of my being.
    My mind deepens into them.
    There I can find, as in old letters,
    the days of my life, already lived,
    and held like a legend, and understood.”
    Rainer Maria Rilke, Rilke's Book of Hours: Love Poems to God

    Anaïs Nin
    “There were always in me, two women at least, one woman desperate and bewildered, who felt she was drowning and another who would leap into a scene, as upon a stage, conceal her true emotions because they were weaknesses, helplessness, despair, and present to the world only a smile, an eagerness, curiosity, enthusiasm, interest.”
    Anais Nin

    C.G. Jung
    “With a truly tragic delusion,” Carl Jung noted, “these theologians fail to see that it is not a matter of proving the existence of the light, but of blind people who do not know that their eyes could see. It is high time we realized that it is pointless to praise the light and preach it if nobody can see it. It is much more needful to teach people the art of seeing.”
    Carl Jung

    Patrick Rothfuss
    “It's the questions we can't answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer, all he gains is a little fact. But give him a question and he'll look for his own answers.”
    Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear

    Rainer Maria Rilke
    “The future enters into us, in order to transform itself in us, long before it happens.”
    Rainer Maria Rilke

    Elizabeth Cady Stanton
    “The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.”
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton

    Rainer Maria Rilke
    “Let your beauty manifest itself
    without talking and calculation.​
    You are silent. It says for you: I am.
    And comes in meaning thousandfold​,
    comes at long last over everyone.”
    Rainer Maria Rilke

    Kahlil Gibran
    “Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.”
    Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

    “Honesty is vulnerability. Sadly, not everyone can handle someone’s honesty. However, lying allows people to be comfortable.”
    Shannon L. Alder

    Osho
    “A mature person has the integrity to be alone. And when a mature person gives love, he gives without any strings attached to it: he simply gives. And when a mature person gives love, he feels grateful that you have accepted his love, not vice versa. He does not expect you to be thankful for it – no, not at all, he does not even need your thanks. He thanks you for accepting his love.

    And when two mature persons are in love, one of the greatest paradoxes of life happens, one of the most beautiful phenomena: they are together and yet tremendously alone, they are together so much so that they are almost one. But their oneness does not destroy their individuality; in fact, it enhances it: they become more individual. Two mature persons in love help each other to become more free. There is no politics involved, no diplomacy, no effort to dominate. How can you dominate the person you love? Just think over it.

    Domination is a sort of hatred, anger, enmity. How can you even think of dominating a person you love? You would love to see the person totally free, independent; you will give him more individuality. That’s why I call it the greatest paradox: they are together so much so that they are almost one, but still in that oneness they are individuals. Their individualities are not effaced; they have become more enhanced. The other has enriched them as far as their freedom is concerned.

    Immature people falling in love destroy each other’s freedom, create a bondage, make a prison. Mature persons in love help each other to be free; they help each other to destroy all sorts of bondages. And when love flows with freedom there is beauty. When love flows with dependence there is ugliness.

    Remember, freedom is a higher value than love. That’s why, in India, the ultimate we call moksha. Moksha means freedom. Freedom is a higher value than love. So if love is destroying freedom, it is not of worth. Love can be dropped, freedom has to be saved; freedom is a higher value. And without freedom you can never be happy, that is not possible. Freedom is the intrinsic desire of each man, each woman – utter freedom, absolute freedom.

    So anything that becomes destructive to freedom, one starts hating it. Don’t you hate the man you love? Don’t you hate the woman you love? You hate; it is a necessary evil, you have to tolerate it. Because you cannot be alone you have to manage to be with somebody, and you have to adjust to the other’s demands. You have to tolerate, you have to bear them.

    Love, to be really love, has to be being-love, gift-love. Being-love means a state of love. When you have arrived home, when you have known who you are, then a love arises in your being. Then the fragrance spreads and you can give it to others.

    How can you give something which you don’t have?

    To give it, the first basic requirement is to have it.”
    Osho, Tantric Transformation: When Love Meets Meditation

    Rainer Maria Rilke
    “I want my own will, and I want
    simply to be with my will,
    as it goes toward action.
    And in the silent, sometimes hardly moving times,
    when something is coming near,
    I want to be with those who know
    secret things or else alone...
    I want to unfold.
    I don’t want to be folded anywhere,
    because where I am folded,
    there I am a lie.”
    Rainer Maria Rilke, Rilke's Book of Hours: Love Poems to God

    Anaïs Nin
    “If I love you it means we share the same fantasies, the same madnesses”
    Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

    Rainer Maria Rilke
    “All emotions are pure which gather you and lift you up; that emotion is impure which seizes only one side of your being and so distorts you.”
    Rainer Maria Rilke

    Emily Brontë
    “Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same”
    Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

    Mary Ann Shaffer
    “I don't want to be married just to be married. I can't think of anything lonelier than spending the rest of my life with someone I can't talk to, or worse, someone I can't be silent with.”
    Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

  • #38
    Emily Brontë
    “He shall never know I love him: and that, not because he's handsome, but because he's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made out of, his and mine are the same.”
    Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

  • #39
    Kahlil Gibran
    “When love beckons to you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden. For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth......

    But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor, Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears. Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

    Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself."

    But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully.”
    Kahlil Gibran, Le Prophète

  • #40
    Rainer Maria Rilke
    “We have no reason to mistrust our world, for it is not against us. Has it terrors, they are our terrors; has it abysses, those abysses belong to us; are dangers at hand, we must try to love them… How should we be able to forget those ancient myths about dragons that at the least moment turn into princesses; perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave.”
    Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

    Rainer Maria Rilke

    “It is good to be solitary, for solitude is difficult; that something is difficult must be a reason the more for us to do it.”
    Rainer Maria Rilke

    “I have never been aware before how many faces there are. There are quantities of human beings, but there are many more faces, for each person has several.”
