Ernest Hemingway
“By then I knew that everything good and bad left an emptiness when it stopped. But if it was bad, the emptiness filled up by itself. If it was good you could only fill it by finding something better.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Neil Gaiman
“There was only one guy in the whole Bible Jesus ever personally promised a place with him in Paradise. Not Peter, not Paul, not any of those guys. He was a convicted thief, being executed. So don't knock the guys on death row. Maybe they know something you don't.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

“Let us dedicate this new era to mothers around the world, and also to the mother of all mothers -- Mother Earth. It is up to us to keep building bridges to bring the world closer together, and not destroy them to divide us further apart. We can pave new roads towards peace simply by understanding other cultures. This can be achieved through traveling, learning other languages, and interacting with others from outside our borders. Only then will one truly discover how we are more alike than different. Never allow language or cultural traditions to come between brothers and sisters. The same way one brother may not like his sister's choice of fashion or hairstyle, he will never hate her for her personal style or music preference. If you judge a man, judge only his heart. And if you should do so, make sure you use the truth in your conscience when weighing one's character. Do not measure anybody strictly based on the bad you see in them and ignore all the good.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Soheir Khashoggi
“Was it always to be like this? she wondered. A moment of joy followed by a new sorrow?”

Jon Kabat-Zinn

Allow yourself to feel whatever you are feeling. Notice any labels you attach to crying or feeling vulnerable. Let go of the labels. Just feel what you are feeling, all the while cultivating moment-to-moment awareness, riding the waves of “up” and “down,” “good” and “bad,” “weak” and “strong,” until you see that they are all inadequate to fully describe your experience. Be with the experience itself. Trust in your deepest strength of all: to be present, to be wakeful.”
Jon Kabat-Zinn, Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life

“She tries to be a good person. But deep down she knows she is a bad person, corrupted, wrong, and all her efforts to be right, to have the right opinions, to say the right things, these efforts only disguise what is buried inside her, the evil part of herself.”
Sally Rooney, Normal People

“Listen, listen. I can explain. There's a bad Ted underneath the good Ted, yes, but then, under that, there's a Ted who's good for real. But no one ever sees him; his whole life, no one ever has. Underneath it all, I'm just that kid who wanted nothing more than to be loved and didn't know how to make it happen, even though I tried and tried and tried.”
Kristen Roupenian, You Know You Want This

Marie Cardinal
“for lige fra forklaringen på hallucinationen til afsløringen af voldeligheden havde jeg lært et menneske inde i mig selv at kende, som ikke var en engel. Jeg havde haft tid til at vænne mig til mit hovmod, min trang til uafhængighed og magt, til min egocentricitet. Jeg havde forstået, at disse karaktertræk lige så godt kunne være fejl som gode egenskaber, alt efter hvordan jeg styrede dem. De var som et forspand af vilde heste. Det var mig, der skulle finde ud af at køre det godt. Det skræmte mig ikke, jeg kunne føle, jeg havde hånd om dem.
I dag kom voldeligheden som en smuk og farlig gave til mig, et frygteligt våben indlagt med guld og perlemor, som jeg nu skulle håndtere med allerstørste forsigtighed. Jeg længtes efter at afprøve det. Jeg vidste, jeg kun ville benytte det til at opbygge med, ikke til at ødelægge med.
Samtidig med bevidstheden om voldeligheden dukkede også bevidstheden om min vitalitet og munterhed og gavmildhed op.
Jeg var næsten skabt.”
Marie Cardinal, The Words to Say It

Andrew Seaton
“When you see through what the conditioned mind-body thinks things mean, in particular its judgments of good and bad, you awaken to your true nature as peace and oneness with the spiritual essence of all life.”
Andrew Seaton

“We are each a product of the world around us. We take in the good and we take in the bad whether we want to or not.
None of us are perfect no matter what we say, and as such, all of us at one time will display good and bad traits.
It's life and we need to accept it and yet, we still need to learn from it if we are to move forward.”
Anthony T. Hincks.

Melanie A. Smith
“Money, like everything, is just a tool. It’s not inherently good or bad. It’s how you use it that defines you.”
Melanie A. Smith, You Can't Buy Love

“You want good things in life, but you choose to support people who are doing bad things. The same people you are supporting, who are doing bad to others. When they are done with those people. They will be doing bad things to you too.”
De Philosopher DJ Kyos

Marie Cardinal
“I første del af analysen havde jeg erobret min krops sundhed og frihed. Nu skulle jeg, langsomt, i gang med at opdage min person.
Det gik meget trægt i begyndelsen, for jeg var på vagt over for mig selv. Jeg frygtede at møde et menneske, hvis mangler og lyder, jeg ikke ville være i stand til at rumme. Jeg måtte foretage utallige togter ned i underbevidstheden for at blive overbevist om, at der var vildt og frit, men blottet for ondskab. Der var både godt og ondt i min bevidsthed, så var det op til mig at smede dem som det passede mig.
Behandlingen var forbi, da jeg følte mig i stand til at påtage mig ansvar for mine tanker og handlinger, hvordan de end var.”
Marie Cardinal, The Words to Say It

“Don’t talk bad about someone to me, or talk about the bad things they do, if you will not talk about us finding a way of helping them to do right, but you talk ,because you want to be seen as an angel and them as the devil.”
De philosopher DJ Kyos
