Gautama Buddha
“Whatever a monk keeps pursuing with his thinking and pondering, that becomes the inclination of his awareness.”
Siddhārtha Gautama

William Blake
“If a thing loves, it is infinite.”
William Blake

Fyodor Dostoevsky
“Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Audrey Hepburn
“You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.”
audrey hepburn

Jerry Spinelli
“Live today. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. Just today. Inhabit your moments. Don’t rent them out to tomorrow. Do you know what you’re doing when you spend a moment wondering how things are going to turn out with Perry?

You’re cheating yourself out of today. Today is calling to you, trying to get your attention, but you’re stuck on tomorrow, and today trickles away like water down a drain. You wake up the next morning and that today you wasted is gone forever. It’s now yesterday. Some of those moments may have had wonderful things in store for you , but now you’ll never know.”
Jerry Spinelli, Love, Stargirl
