Elizabeth Gilbert
“I have a friend, an aspiring musician, whose sister said to her one day, quite reasonably, “What happens if you never get anything out of this? What happens if you pursue your passion forever, but success never comes? How will you feel then, having wasted your entire life for nothing?” My friend, with equal reason, replied, “If you can’t see what I’m already getting out of this, then I’ll never be able to explain it to you.” When it’s for love, you will always do it anyhow.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

Anthony Doerr
“Open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever.”
Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See

Irvin D. Yalom
“Despair is the price one pays for self-awareness. Look deeply into life, and you'll always find despair.”
Irvin D. Yalom, When Nietzsche Wept

Cheryl Strayed
“I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me.”
Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

Marcus Aurelius
“The happiness of those who want to be popular depends on others; the happiness of those who seek pleasure fluctuates with moods outside their control; but the happiness of the wise grows out of their own free acts.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
