“No one has ever become poor by giving.”

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

Thought about this quotation a lot today.

“Silence, I discover, is something you can actually hear.”

– Haruki Murakami (Kafka on the Shore)

“So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they are chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives your purpose and meaning.”

– Randy Pausch (via thelovewhisperer)

“Find someone who makes you realize three things: one, that home is not a place, but a feeling. Two, that time is not measured by a clock, but by moments. And three, that heartbeats are not heard, but felt and shared.”

– (via desertgold)

“Don’t talk to yourself in such a way that if you did so to a friend, it would end your friendship.

If you had a friend dealing with the same things, you wouldn’t berate that person, say, ‘You’re not working hard enough,’ ‘You suck,’ or ‘You’re not as good as [whomever].’ You’d offer your friend encouragement, you’d try to point out all the things your friend did right, and how much progress your friend had made.

You should do no less for yourself.

Be very careful how you talk to yourself. Because you are listening.

“Once you lose someone it is never exactly the same person who comes back.”

“Loneliness is designed to help you discover who you are…and to stop looking outside yourself for your worth.”
