• If you make listening and observation your occupation you will gain much more than you can by talk. -Robert Baden-Powell
  • Two heaped cups of patience, one heartful of love, two handfuls of generosity, one headful of understanding and a dash of humor, sprinkle with kindness, add plenty of faith and mix well. Spread over a period of a lifetime and serve to everyone you meet. -Julia White
  • Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams. -Ashley Smith
  • I think every girl is looking for her Mr. Darcy. -Kiera Knightley
  • There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again. -Elizabeth Lawrence
  • I love people. Everybody. I love them, I think, as a stamp collector loves his collection. Every story, every incident, every bit of conversation is raw material for me. My love’s not impersonal yet not wholly subjective either. I would like to be everyone, a cripple, a dying man, a whore, and then come back to write about my thoughts, my emotions, as that person. But I am not omniscient. I have to live my life, and it is the only one I’ll ever have. And you cannot regard your own life with objective curiosity all the time. -Sylvia Plath
  • When you get to know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty or looks. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body, but not your heart. That’s why when you really connect with a person, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant. -?
  • Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. -Kahlil Gibrán
  • I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person. -Audrey Hepburn
  • Each has his past shut in him like the leaves of a book known to him by heart and his friends can only read the title. -Virgina Woolfe
  • Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all. -Vincent Van Gogh
  • We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are. -J.K. Rowling
  • You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. -C.S. Lewis
  • I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way. -Pablo Neruda
  • He who does not understand your silence will probably not understand your words. -Elbert Hubbard
