“Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings- always darker, emptier and simpler.”
You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see,
but you cannot close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.
Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.
Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up.
They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.
“Nobody can hurt you without your permission.”
Let mystery have its place in you;
do not be always turning up your whole soil with the plough..share of self-examination,
but leave a little fallow corner in your heart
ready for any seed
the winds may bring.
Sever the ignorant doubt in your heart with the sword of self–knowledge;
Observe your discipline;
Wit is a sword; it is meant to make people feel the point as well as see it
There is a road from the eye to heart that does not go through the intellect.
“Life is a voyage.”
The longest journey one must take is the eighteen inches from his head to his heart.
“No man dies for what he knows to be true. Men die for what they want to be true, for what some terror in their hearts tells them is not true.”
