Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose, or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation.

Graham Greene

That weight you’ve placed upon your shoulders is going to crush you. Take it off. You don’t need to be perfect. You don’t need to have it all together. You don’t need to please everyone. You don’t need to be anything or anyone other that who you are. You are more than good enough. Who you are is beautiful. Who you are is loved. Who you are is special in more ways than one. Place that heavy burden on the ground. Throw it into the sea. Expel it from your being. You will be lighter in mind, body, and soul. Live in that freedom of the true you.

An educated person is one who has learned that information almost always turns out to be at best incomplete and very often false, misleading, fictitious, mendacious – just dead wrong.
Russell Baker

An education isn’t how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It’s being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don’t.
Anatole France
 
Learning is a result of listening, which in turn leads to even better listening and attentiveness to the other person. In other words, to learn from the child, we must have empathy, and empathy grows as we learn.
Alice Miller
 
No man who worships education has got the best out of education… Without a gentle contempt for education no man’s education is complete.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
 
Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man’s training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly.
Thomas H. Huxley

Quotes for my soul

Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
G. K. Chesterton

Haters don’t really hate you, they hate themselves; because you’re a reflection of what they wish to be.

Happiness cannot come from without. It must come from within. It is not what we see and touch or that which others do for us which makes us happy; it is that which we think and feel and do, first for the other fellow and then for ourselves.

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings. Take care of your love and loved ones, always. It is the best and the most precious thing you will ever have.

There’s always a little truth behind every „just kidding”,
A little knowledge behind every „I don’t know”,
A little emotion behind every „I don’t care”,
And a little pain behind every „It’s ok”

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems,
but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
Herm Albright
.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
Mark Twain
.
I am not afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.
Woody Allen
.
How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
.
I believe in rules. Sure I do. If there weren’t any rules, how could you break them?
.
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.
Jack Handey

Ca în fiecare marți, ceva ce sper să dea de gândit.

We need to teach our daughters to distinguish between:
A man that flatters her and a man that compliments her….
A man that spends money on her and a man that invests in her.
A man that views her as property and a man that views her properly.
A man that lusts after her and a man that loves her.
A man that believes he is God’ s gift to women and a man that remembers a woman was God’s gift to man…
And teach our boys to be that kind of a man…

Din păcate nu-mi aduc aminte unde am găsit asta, dar mi-a plăcut.

.

A man who graduated high in his class at Yale Law School and made partnership in a top law firm would be celebrated. A man who invested wisely would be admired, but a woman who accomplishes this is treated with suspicion.

Găsite acum mult timp, salvate și uitate într-un folder. Cred că e timpul să vadă lumina. Reguli de viață.

1. Don’t panic. Don’t take anything, not even these words (and especially not yourself), too seriously.

2. Never stop thinking. If someone ever says to you ‘you need to stop thinking so much’ just ignore them and keep thinking deeper… Your mind is the most important tool you have, if you stop using it, it will atrophy. FACT.

3. Daydream as much as possible, even if it’s only for a few seconds at a time. stare into space blankly and don’t ever punish yourself for doing it. There’s no such thing as wasting time.

4. Don’t be afraid to talk about anything. Ask questions, and demand answers.

5. Everyone is original. Every life experience is case sensitive and unique. Every thing you do makes you more YOU than anyone else has ever been.

6. Stop rushing. Take your time and enjoy every moment.

7. Don’t let anyone tell you what to believe. Discover ‘religion’ for yourself. It should never be taught, only found.

8. Talking to yourself is healthy. Who else do you have more in common with?

9. We will always be in a transitional phase. Look around you and know that everything will be replaced at some point. This existence is only temporary.

10. If someone else has already said it better, don’t be afraid to quote them.

11. There is no such thing as time. There is only your life- earlier today you were born and death is predicted later in the evening.

12. Every now and then take something that you see everyday and try to see it in a different light. Renew its existence.

13. Be happy… but don’t force it. That defeats the purpose. Discover what is making you unhappy, and change it.

14. You will always succeed in trying.

15. We are all crazy. Every person you read about in the history books, already know, or will maybe meet on the street, has or had some kind of ‘disorder’… You just have to learn how to use yours.

16. We are all about as similar as we are different.

17. Ideas are just as valuable as people. Why do you think we keep making people? We hope new people will have new ideas to share- so don’t let everyone down by keeping yours to yourself.

18. Words will always be just words. only the feelings are real

19. Ask a child for advice, and never speak down to them. They may not know much, but they know what is important.

20. Prove you’re alive. Remind the world you are still here.
