"Doubt everything. Find your own light."
"Let mystery have its place in you; do not be always turning up your whole soil with the plowshare of self–examination, but leave a little fallow corner in your heart ready for any seed the winds may bring, and reserve a nook of shadow for the passing bird; keep a place in your heart for the unexpected guests, an altar for the unknown God. Then if a bird sings among your branches, do not be too eager to tame it. If you are conscious of something new – thought or feeling, wakening in the depths of your being – do not be in a hurry to let in light upon it, to look at it; let the springing germ have the protection of being forgotten, hedge it round with quiet, and do not break in upon its darkness; let it take shape and grow, and not a word of your happiness to any one! Sacred work of nature as it is, all conception should be enwrapped by the triple veil of modesty, silence and night."
"The physician treats, but nature heals."
"If you gotta force it, just leave it alone. Relationships, friendships, ponytails.. Just leave it."

"I learned that it is the weak who are cruel, and that gentleness is to be expected only from the strong."
"Learn the alchemy true human beings know. The moment you accept what troubles you’ve been given the door with open."
"To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it"
"Remember that there is nothing stable in human affairs; therefore avoid undue elation in prosperity, or undue depression in adversity."
"What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly."
"Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding."
"Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral. It is as it is."
"Books are a hard-bound drug with no danger of an overdose. I am the happy victim of books."
"The highest form of wisdom is kindness."
"Will you tolerate
the strangeness inside of me,
the quirks of my soul?"
