"Lives are shaped by chance encounters and by discovering things that we don’t know that we don’t know."

"Maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots."

"You know the greatest thing is passion. Without it what have you got? I mean if you love someone you can love them as much as you can love them but if it isn’t a passion, it isn’t burning, it isn’t on fire, you haven’t lived."

"Love is a meeting of two souls, fully accepting the dark & light within each other bound by the courage to grow through struggle into bliss."

"Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."

- Martin Luther King, Jr. 

"In the beginning, the price of giving great love is risking that it won’t be returned. Until you understand, of course, that great love is always returned. With interest."

"The one thing all famous authors, world class athletes, business tycoons, singers, actors, and celebrated achievers in any field have in common is that they all began their journeys when they were none of these things. Yet still, they began their journeys."

"People see me a certain way. Then they learn about me and start to understand that I don’t fit that box. I don’t have square edges. Maybe I’m a spiral."

"Love one person, take care of them until you die. You know, raise kids. Have a good life. Be a good friend. And try to be completely who you are. And figure out what you personally love. And like go after it with everything you’ve got no matter how much it takes."

- ― Angelina Jolie

"But while my inner voice was clearly telling me I was at my core an entrepreneur, it’s inconvenient to decide at 23 that you can’t really work for other people."

"Sometimes I think a soulmate is someone who will make you be the most ‘you’ that you could possibly be."

"If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliche that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that’s their problem. Love and peace are eternal."

- John Lennon

"The planet is here for our delight, but it is also here for us to change, to make it the best it can be. It’s not just about sleeping and fucking and getting the right dress. Let’s hope not."
