Blaise Pascal
“The heart has its reasons which reason knows not.”
Blaise Pascal

Bernard M. Baruch
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”
Bernard M. Baruch

Willa Cather
“The heart of another is a dark forest, always, no matter how close it has been to one’s own.”
Willa Cather

Tom Robbins
“If you believe in peace, act peacefully; if you believe in love, acting lovingly; if you believe every which way, then act every which way, that's perfectly valid - but don't go out trying to sell your beliefs to the system. You end up contradicting what you profess to believe in, and you set a bum example. If you want to change the world, change yourself.”
Tom Robbins

Rainer Maria Rilke
“For one human being to love another human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been given to us, the ultimate, the final problem and proof, the work for which all other work is merely preparation.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, The Selected Poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke
