Annie Dillard
“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
Annie Dillard, The Writing Life

Ayn Rand
“Have you felt it too? Have you seen how your best friends love everything about you- except the things that count? And your most important is nothing to them; nothing, not even a sound they can recognize.”
Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

Henry David Thoreau
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms...”
Henry David Thoreau

Anaïs Nin
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
Anais Nin

Tom Robbins
“The highest function of love is that it makes the loved one a unique and irreplaceable being.”
Tom Robbins, Jitterbug Perfume
