EVERY ONE NOW KNOWS how to find the meaning of life within himself. But mankind wasn’t always so lucky. Less than a century ago men and women did not have easy access to the puzzle boxes within them. They could not name even one of the fifty-three portals to the soul. Gimcrack religions were big business. Mankind, ignorant of the truths that lie within every human being, looked outward—pushed ever outward.

Mikhail Bakunin
“I am truly free only when all human beings, men and women, are equally free. The freedom of other men, far from negating or limiting my freedom, is, on the contrary, its necessary premise and confirmation.”
Mikhail Bakunin

Alain de Botton
“Every fall into love involves the triumph of hope over self-knowledge. We fall in love hoping we won't find in another what we know is in ourselves, all the cowardice, weakness, laziness, dishonesty, compromise, and stupidity. We throw a cordon of love around the chosen one and decide that everything within it will somehow be free of our faults. We locate inside another a perfection that eludes us within ourselves, and through our union with the beloved hope to maintain (against the evidence of all self-knowledge) a precarious faith in our species.”
Alain de Botton, On Love

Stephen Chbosky
“Things change. And friends leave. Life doesn't stop for anybody.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Marcus Aurelius
“Every portion of me will be reassigned as another portion of the world, and that in turn transformed into another. Ad infinitum.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations: A New Translation

Marcus Aurelius
“To the world: Your harmony is mine. Whatever time you choose is the right time. Not late, not early.”
