I must learn to love the fool in me the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. ” -Theodore Isaac Rubin
"Everything is biographical, Lucian Freud says. What we make, why it is made, how we draw a dog, who it is we are drawn to, why we cannot forget. Everything is collage, even genetics. There is the hidden presence of others in us, even those we have known briefly. We contain them for the rest of our lives, at every border that we cross. " Divisadero
I don’t see much sense in that,” said Rabbit. “No,” said Pooh humbly, “there isn’t. But there was going to be when I began it. It’s just that something happened to it along the way.” Winnie the Pooh
Body cells replace themselves every month. Even at this very moment. Most everything you think you know about me is nothing more than memories. (Haruki Murakami)
Caterpillar: Who are YOU?Alice: This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. I — I hardly know, sir, just at present — at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.
На каквото съм се присмяла все ми е дошло до главата:)
“Your memory is a monster; you forget — it doesn’t. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you — and summons them to your recall with a will of its own. You think you have a memory…but it has you.” — John Irving
“Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something, and has lost something” — Proverb
Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon… must inevitably come to pass!(Paul J. Meyer)
Too often going after what feels good means letting of what you know is right. And letting someone in means abandoning the walls you took so long to build. Of course, the toughest sacrifices are the ones we don’t see coming ; when we don’t have time to come up with a strategy, pick a side, or measure the potential loss. When that happens, when the battle chooses us and not the other way around, that’s when the sacrifice becomes more than we can bear.
“Love me without fear
Trust me without questioning
Need me without demanding
Want me without restrictions
Accept me without change
Desire me without inhibitions
For a love so free…
Will never fly away.”—
“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”—henri nouwen (via quote-book)
“I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’ Ah, that’s the great puzzle!”—Alice in Wonderland (via vanessastone) (via un-tout-petit-coeur)
Today is my day for gratefulness. The world tells us to get real. I am making a plan for the next week. Every day is full of lectures,meetings and work… Every-day stuff and still part of my life… With a cup of strong espresso, I am thinking over life. I am grateful for so many things. I am grateful for my incredible family, my glamorous friends and my amazing boyfriend… I am grateful for the chances that I have and the mistakes I have made. I am happy that I found my soul mate and I want to make a difference. People think about it rarely and I think that’s a mistake. We have all we need to be happy. Even the struggle to achieve something is happiness in itself. I am still thinking about the wonderful Saturday I had and I am grateful for that too. A great walk, meal and chocolate cake with the person I adore… Mmmm:) I am happy! And it feels so real:)
You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life.
“When you have come to the edge of all light that you know and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.”—Patrick Overton, author and poet.
