“Do what you love, love what you do, and with all your heart give yourself to it.”
Roy Bennett

Christiane Northrup
“We are all hungry for genuine connection and caring, and we will not get this unless we find our Soul's tribe.

If we don't find this, we'll kill ourselves, either by finding an addiction to mask the pain or by ignoring what we need to stay healthy.”
Christiane Northrup M.D., Making Life Easy: A Simple Guide to a Divinely Inspired Life

“Existence is this, I thought, a start of joy, a stab of pain, an intense pleasure, veins that pulse under the skin, there is no other truth to tell.”
Elena Ferrante, The Days of Abandonment

Iain Reid
“Sometimes a thought is closer to truth, to reality, than an action. You can say anything, you can do anything, but you can't fake a thought.”
Iain Reid, I'm Thinking of Ending Things

Christopher Hitchens
“Authors who moan with praise for their editors always seem to reek slightly of the Stockholm syndrome.”
Christopher Hitchens, Blood, Class and Empire: The Enduring Anglo-American Relationship
