"You wanna know what living life to the fullest actually is? It’s waking up on a Monday morning with no complaints. It’s knowing you always deserve to laugh. It’s doing what feels right no matter what. It’s doing what you want to, no matter how stupid you look. It’s about being yourself, ‘cause no one can tell you you’re doing it wrong."
"The magic begins in you. Feel your own energy, and realize similar energy exists within the Earth, stones, plants, water, wind, fire, colors, and animals."
"If you’re losing your soul and you know it, then you’ve still got a soul left to lose."
"What is art? A declaration of love: the consciousness of our dependence on each other. A confession. An unconscious act that nonetheless reflects the true meaning of life—love and sacrifice."
"I must have flowers, always, and always."
"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance."
"Maybe happiness is this: not feeling like you should be elsewhere, doing something else, being someone else."
"Do it or don’t. It’s amazing how many things in life are that easy."
"Let the beauty of what you love be what you do."
"What in your life is calling you,
when all the noise is silenced,
the meetings adjourned,
the lists laid aside,
and the wild Iris blooms
in the dark forest,
what still pulls on your soul?"
"Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different."
"I came to a point where I needed solitude and just stop the machine of ‘thinking’ and ‘enjoying’ what they call ‘living’, I just wanted to lie in the grass and look at the clouds."
"If your destination, or the steps you are going to take in the future, take up so much of your attention that they become more important to you than the step you are taking now, then you completely miss the journey’s inner purpose, which has nothing to do with where you are going or what you are doing, but everything to do with how. It has nothing to do with future but everything to do with the quality of your consciousness at this moment."
"Being both soft and strong is a combination very few have mastered."
