“Growing up means learning what life is. When you're little, you have a set of ideals, standards, criteria, plans, outlooks, and you think that you have to sit around and wait for them to happen to you and then life will work. But life isn't like that, for anybody; you can't fall in love with a standard, you have to fall in love with a person. You can't live in a criteria, you have to live your life. You can't wait for your plans to materialize, because they may never materialize the way you think they will. You can't wait to watch your ideals and standards walk up to you, because you can't know what's yours until you have it. I always say, always take the first chance in case you never get a second one, but growing up takes that even one step further, growing up means that you have to hold on to what you have, when you have it, because what you have- that's yours- and all the ideals and criteria you have set in your head, those aren't yours, because those haven't happened to you.”
C. JoyBell C.

“When dealing with critics always remember this: Critics judge things based on what is outside of their content of understanding.”
Shannon L. Alder

Shannon L. Alder
“The secret to your purpose is to find what you feel is important, and not pursue what others would think is important. When you think highly of yourself, me thinking highly of you will never be enough!”
Shannon L. Alder

“They say, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger"....I don't agree. Some things that didn't kill me, came so close that they're still damaging. They didn't make me better. Some things made me worse. And can't that be okay too? Can't some things just break you? This whole fucking world wants you to believe that admitting defeat makes you weak. For God's sake, bleed. And bleed openly. There can be pride in vulnerability. Honesty is maturity. And really, it's the things that did kill me, that made me.”
J. Raymond

Angela Duckworth
“...interests are not discovered through introspection. Instead, interests are triggered by interactions with the outside world. The process of interest discovery can be messy, serendipitous, and inefficient. This is because you can't really predict with certainty what will capture your attention and what won't...Without experimenting, you can't figure out which interests will stick, and which won't.”
Angela Duckworth, Grit: Passion, Perseverance, and the Science of Success

“Life has a tendency to provide a person with what they need in order to grow. Our beliefs, what we value in life, provide the roadmap for the type of life that we experience. A period of personal unhappiness reveals that our values are misplaced and we are on the wrong path. Unless a person changes their values and ideas, they will continue to experience discontentment.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“Perception of a self is not simply about actuality. Human beings’ identities are self-generating and people constantly revise and recreate the story of their being. Coming-into-being, not being, is the highest expression of reality. We only attain the fullest knowledge of a living thing including ourselves when we know what it was, understand what it now is, and understand what it can become. We do not know the truth of a living thing’s existence until we discern its entire history from development to demise.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Haruki Murakami
“Things change everyday. With each new dawn, it is not the same world as before. And you’re not the same person you were either.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

John Dewey
“A single course of studies for all progressive schools is out of the question; it would mean abandoning the fundamental principle of connection with life-experiences.”
John Dewey, Experience and Education

Keysha Jade
“You will meet people in life who will just dislike you for no reason, not because there is anything wrong with you but because everything is going right for you. Until they master their own peace, they will always try to destroy yours.”
Keysha Jade, Intoxicated stained tears

Carolyn G. Heilbrun
“With solitude, however, fervently it is desired and embraced, comes loneliness. T. H White, the author, offered advice to those in sadness -- learn something new.”
Carolyn G. Heilbrun, The Last Gift of Time: Life Beyond Sixty

“While others allow failure to define them, others
allow lack or abundance to define them. You cannot define yourself that way! You may have failed in the past but that is not the end of the world. You may be living in
poverty but poverty is not your destiny. Please hear me out; do not attach value to your bad life experiences. Learn from them but do not lose focus. Your focus
must be on your assignment; which is the ultimate reason for your existence.”
D.S. Mashego

“You’ve probably heard it before—if not, you’ve likely experienced it yourself.”

“There are so many lenses through which we look at life. There are so many lenses through which we perceive others. There are so many lenses through which we interpret things that happen to us in life and there are so many lenses that give us not just the different perspectives about life, but how we behave towards life and other people due to the reasons we have! Wealth influences our reasons and poverty directs our actions. Failure shows us a different way to behave and success gives us a different reason for action.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah, Religion, Philosophy and life

Sam Owen
“Remembering our personal growth that resulted from negative life experiences makes new obstacles easier to embrace.”
Sam Owen

Fernando Pessoa
“Digo-vos: praticai o bem. Porquê? O que ganhais com isso? Nada, não ganhais nada. Nem dinheiro, nem amor, nem respeito, nem talvez paz de espírito. Talvez não ganheis nada disso. Então por que vos digo: Praticai o bem? Porque não ganhais nada com isso. Vale a pena praticá-lo por isto mesmo.”
Fernando Pessoa

Adrián Lamo
“At the time of our conversations, Chelsea Manning was 22 years of age - my own age when I made the choice to surrender to federal authorities ... I saw someone very familiar that day, and suddenly felt very old.”
Adrián Lamo

“Each of your precious life experiences have led you to this moment.”

“« بیشتر "ایسم ها" فقط درونت آشوب به پا می کنند. تا وقتی با هم سر جنگ دارند با دهان های من و تو به جان هم می افتند و وقتی صلح می کنند، با دهانهای خودشان قهوه و شیرینی مشترک می خوردند»”
محمد عنبرزاده - Mohammad Anbarzade

P.D. James
“Even as a child, I had a sense that I was two people; the one who experienced the trauma, the pain, the happiness, and the other who stood aside and watched with a disinterested ironic eye.”
P.D. James, Time To Be In Earnest: A Fragment Of Autobiography

Christine Evangelou
“When we see an indistinct flower rise to full bloom through an inconspicuous split in the rock, this inspires hope, faith, and highlights the strength of the gentle flower over the seemingly mighty rock. Suddenly we view the impossible as possible again. Your challenges and tough times may appear as the rigid, prominent and oppressive rocks that force you down, but the splendour of the rose is born through the power of inner wisdom, natural law, and tenacity over tribulation as she ascends toward glory. Even the most beautiful roses lay dormant during winter; life’s darkness is simply a shadow that we can seek our light through.”
christine evangelou, Rocks Into Roses: Life Lessons and Inspiration for Personal Growth

Christine Evangelou
“There is no finish-line on the path to soul growth- there is no race, no perfect place to get to where life is easy. We can release judgement and fear-based thinking when we entertain that life is a journey with many pit-stops along the way and we are responsible for finding the beauty at every twist and turn.”
Christine Evangelou, Rocks Into Roses: Life Lessons and Inspiration for Personal Growth

Hew J. La France
“I don’t have an inspiring story of spiraling into a drug or alcohol addiction just for God to swoop in and save me. Instead, I self-medicated my depression by shopping. I’d spend to forget the pain, get the bill, freak out, then would subsequently go shop some more. At one point, my bill got too high, and I snapped. As I fought to get out from under the debt, I prayed for God to deliver me from the crushing anxiety I felt, which was brought on by the debt and which had added to the debt.
One morning God said to me, “Get help. Get well. Be healed.”
Hew J. La France

“I have made mistakes, more than anyone else can but I am fearless, bold and more wise than I could have been. Life is an experience not a mistake.”
