  • Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
    • Rumi
  • Pain doesn't tell you when you ought to stop. Pain is the little voice in your head that tries to hold you back because it knows if you continue, you will change. Don't let it stop you from being who you can be. Exhaustion tells you when you ought to stop. You only reach your limit when you can go no further.
  • If this had not happened, something worse would have happened.
  • We learn to know Him, now, the emptiness of a hope that may come close to despair. For perfect hope is achieved on the brink of despair when, instead of falling over the edge, we find ourselves walking on the air.
    • T. Merton
  • For Christ plays in ten thousand places,/Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his.
    • G. M. Hopkins
  • Without God, reality is madness. Reason will tell you so. You either madly trust in God, or you trust in a world gone mad without him.
    • G. Wood, Leaper
  • If all mankind minus one were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.
    • J. S. Mill, On Liberty
  • If you're holding out for universal popularity, I'm afraid you will be in this cabin for a very long time.
    • J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  • Oh, yeah, you blend.
    • Marisa Tomei, My Cousin Vinny
  • You're kidding! Crazy random happenstance!
  • I'm Dr. Horrible. I have a PHD in horribleness.

  • To let go isn’t to forget, not to think about, or ignore. It doesn’t leave feelings of anger, jealousy, or regret. Letting go isn’t about winning or losing. It’s not about pride and it’s not about how you appear, and it’s not obsessing or dwelling on the past. Letting go isn’t blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts, and doesn’t leave emptiness, hurt, or sadness. It’s not about giving in or giving up. Letting go isn’t about loss and it’s not about defeat. To let go is to cherish the memories, but to overcome and move on. It is having an open mind, confidence in the future. Letting go is learning and experiencing and growing. To let go is to be thankful for the experiences that made you laugh, made you cry, and made you grow. It’s about all that you have, all that you had, and all that you will soon gain. Letting go is having the courage to accept change, and the strength to keep moving. Letting go is growing up. It is realizing that the heart can sometimes be the most potent remedy. To let go is to open a door, and to clear a path and set yourself free.

  • I think growing up changed my perspective on the seasons. I remember hearing my freshman year that the high school years pass my so quickly and laughing at it. Time didn’t seem to go by fast enough and I was looking forward to being an upperclassman, because we all know upperclassmen have boyfriends, driver’s licenses, and don’t wear the same size bra as they did in eighth grade. Except now, the only thing I have is the driver’s license.
    • K. Haupt of I Just Might Explode
  • I hold it true, whate'er befall; / I feel it, when I sorrow most; / 'Tis better to have loved and lost / Than never to have loved at all.
    • A., Lord Tennyson, In Memoriam
  • Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds / Or bends with the remover to remove. / It is an ever fixed mark / Which looks on tempests and is never shaken.
    • W. Shakespeare, Sonnet 116
  • An unforeseen plot twist arose when, in a final attempt to jar my family into cooperation, I cast the baby Jesus to the ground and began to repeatedly bludgeon him with my cane.
    • Hyperbole and a Half, The Year Kenny Loggins Ruined Christmas
  • Unfortunately for Benny, we had not yet developed the ability to empathize with the pain and suffering of other people, and his terrified fleeing was pretty much the most fun thing that had ever happened to us.
    • Hyperbole and a Half, Wolves
  • There are still a few men who love desperately.
    • J.D. Salinger
  • To be nobody but yourself in a world that's doing its best to make you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting.
    • e.e. cummings
  • i thank You God for most this amazing/ day;for the leaping greenly spirits of trees/and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything/which is natural which is infinite which is yes
