“People living deeply have no fear of death.”

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”

“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.”

“Life is truly known only to those who suffer, lose,
endure adversity, and stumble from defeat to defeat.”

“Throw your dreams into space like a kite,
and you do not know what it will bring back,
a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.”

“Each friend represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”

“There is not one big cosmic meaning for all,
there is only the meaning we each give to our life,
an individual meaning, an individual plot,
like an individual novel, a book for each person.”

“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 withering, of tarnishing.”

      Forgot to mention that I didn't know that she had been a model but when I saw the intro picture, I thought she looked like one in that pose.
