Mahatma Gandhi
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Janet Benton
“And how those cries affect me! Until now, no matter how much I’ve cared for a person, with the exception of Mother in her dying hours, and despite how dreadful this sounds, I’ve found it easier to bear their suffering than my own. Not so with Charlotte. My shoulders, back, arms, and neck ache from holding her; my nipples are scabbed and sometimes bleeding; yet the most worn-out, painful part of me is my heart. It stretches so wide when she’s contented that I believe its fibers are tearing. When she suffers, it shrinks and throbs and hardens into a knot. Never before have I even thought of my heart as the muscle it is. Never has mine seemed to expand and contract in concert with my feelings. It hurts continually now from responding to the inconstant creature that is Charlotte.”
Janet Benton, Lilli de Jong

Mark Twain
“If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.”
Mark Twain

Paul Kalanithi
“There is a moment, a cusp, when the sum of gathered experience is worn down by the details of living. We are never so wise as when we live in this moment.”
Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde
