مصطفى محمود
“إننا ولدنا في أرض الخطايا. والحل ليس الصراخ، وليس الغضب، وليس القتل، وليس قذف الطين في وجوه المخطئين. ولكن الحل مزيد من الحب. أن يحاول كل منا أن يصلح نفسه ويقوم ذاته ويكون قدوة لغيره قبل أن يقف منه موقف القاضي من المتهم. وتذكر أنك يمكن أن تخطئ أنت أيضاً حينما تكبر وتلح عليك شهواتك وغرائزك.”
مصطفى محمود, اعترافات عشاق

Charlotte Eriksson
“I want to learn how to speak to anyone at any time and make us both feel a little bit better, lighter, richer, with no commitments of ever meeting again. I want to learn how to stand wherever with whoever and still feel stable. I want to learn how to unlock the locks to our minds, my mind, so that when I hear opinions or views that don’t match up with mine, I can still listen and understand. I want to burn up lifeless habits of following maps and to-do lists, concentrated liquids to burn my mind and throat
and I want to go back to the way nature shaped me. I want to learn to go on well with whatever I have in my hands at the moment
in a natural state of mind,
certain like the sea.

I will find comfort in the rhythm of the sea.”
Charlotte Eriksson

“Don’t feel bad about feeling bad. Don’t be frightened of feeling afraid. Don’t be angry about getting angry. There is no need to give up when we are feeling depressed. Nor should we be dismayed at the grief which often accompanies the outgrowing of anything which needs outgrowing. We can be glad that our soul is speaking to us and pushing us onwards. We frequently need to persevere with a period of inner turmoil before the dust can settle and be swept out the door.”
Donna Goddard, The Love of Devotion

Purposeful modification of the self only commences with revising our mind’s internal functions. Revamped internal functions eventually alter how we view our external environment.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“Fun is essential to mastering the serious side of life. It provides the balance that keeps us sane”
Peter Nicholls
