“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.”

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

“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

“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!”

“A lot of people like to listen to people talk about death because we don't do it enough...We make it taboo, and I think that gives it too much power...I hope that for some of you, this made sense. That the uncertainty I felt while typing it clicked something into place for you. In a world where we strive to be different, to stand out, to be unique and not be like anyone else, sometimes it's nice to know that we aren't different...We're all scared little apes burdened with thoughts, worries, and uncertainties. Even our fight to be different proves we're the same.”
Daniel Sloss, Everyone You Hate is Going to Die: And Other Comforting Thoughts on Family, Friends, Sex, Love, and More Things That Ruin Your Life

S.W. Clemens, The Seal Cove Theoretical Society

If it's in your mind, dream & live it.
If it's in your compassion, smell & taste it.
If it's in your soul, shine your love on it. Give your true heart to the beauty of life. If it is in your heart, you own it. Gift your LOVE.”
Dembe Michael

“Just as there will be a final occasion on which I pick up my son - a thought that surely appalls me but one that's hard to deny, since I surely won't be doing it when he's thirty - there will be a last time that you visit your childhood home, or swim in the ocean, or make love, or have a deep conversation with a certain close friend. Yet usually there'll be no way to know in the moment itself, that you're doing it for the last time.”
Oliver Burkeman, Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals

“Maybe sharing my story is my duty to bring awareness about delicate topics such as Refugees' fate, discrimination, depression, bullying: false and thoughtless people, who poison your soul with lies, cheats and betrayal to achieve their own goals at your cost.”
Lily Amis, The Stolen Years In Zurich

“But then I read that the reason Siddhartha  had left his teachers was that could not teach him about the Self. He had wanted to learn about the Self.
The reason why I do not know anything about myself, the reason why Siddhartha has remained alive and unknown to myself, is due to one thing, one single thing – I was afraid of myself. I was fleeing from myself.
“I was afraid of myself,: I said aloud. “I am afraid of myself.”
Then I put down the book to reflect on the times in my life when I had been a follower or an observer and had never taken responsibility for standing up for being myself. I understood that my awareness of my inner fears was a step toward resolving them.”
Tim Scott, Driving Toward Destiny: A Novel

“It was a beautiful ride.”
“Yes, But I will go a little faster on the way back. I want to be home before dark, and more speed will remind me of my youth. Ha! Ha!”
I smiled. Speed was one of the things youth was all about. I certainly liked to speed in cars. But why? With speed, you just got from one place where you didn’t know what was going on to another where you didn’t know what was going on, only faster. What was the point? And I was always speeding. My car was just an extension of my thought process. I wanted to get from uncertain ground as fast as  possible but never could find the solid ground.”
Tim Scott, Driving Toward Destiny: A Novel

“When I was back in my room, I sat on the edge of my bed and stared at the floor. I took my head in my hands and softly began to weep. I tried to determine the cause for my breakdown… (but) I came to realize that my sadness was caused by my own personal angst.
I had come to comprehend my own personal story in a more complete sense. I had a painful childhood, however privileged, and was now actively seeking for those things within myself that would break me away from the bonds of childhood and define me as a man. I was set on living my own life as my own man, not defined by the lives of my parents. And whether I succeeded or not, in the end I would die.”
Tim Scott, Driving Toward Destiny: A Novel

“What about your boyfriends?” I asked.
She shot me a look, but she said, “I admit I used sex to rebel against my mother, and I’ve had a few casual boyfriends since high school. I knew they were after my body, and I like sex, but that got me a reputation. I had never found anyone I could fall in love with except Paul McCartney. But that didn’t work out.”
That made me laugh but I was curious about her sexual adventurousness. Making the assumption, I asked her, “When did you start taking the pill?”
“I started taking it at sixteen because the doctor said that I needed to make up a hormone imbalance. My mother was not pleased, but that’s when I got my license to screw,” she said.
I laughed so hard at that that I fell off the bed. “You’re a witch,” I said.
“A sex witch,” Kara countered. “Come up here and I’ll prove it.”
Tim Scott, Driving Toward Destiny: A Novel

“I knew all these things were true. Wild Bill may have called me into coming to the place where I would experience this adventure, but Bill had crashed out, and I had pulled myself through and had come away with a sense of myself I didn’t have before.”
Tim Scott, Driving Toward Destiny: A Novel

“While ignobles contribute for world sufferings, nobles applaud themselves for moulding skin-deep changes to hedge their bets.

Ignorants accept. Wise wait for the axe to fall.

And the conundrum continues...”
Monika Ajay Kaul
