"I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer" (Rainer Maria Rilke)

"While there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good-humour" (Charles Dickens)

"Fate is like a strange, unpopular restaurant, filled with odd waiters who bring you things you never asked for and don't always like" (Daniel Handler)

"Laughter is the closest thing to the grace of God." KARL BARTH

"No one gets remembered for the things they didn't do." Frank Turner

True friends can grow together even when they are apart.

Native American Proverbs

"Wands are only powerful as the wizards who use them. Some wizards just like to boast that theirs are bigger and better than other peoples" (JK Rowling)

"Getting your dreams, it's strange, but it seems a little - well - complicated. There's a kind of a sort of cost. There's a couple of things get lost. There are bridges you cross, you didn't know you crossed, until you've crossed. And if that joy, that thrill, doesn't thrill you like you think it will... still - who wouldn't be happier? Because happy is what happens when all your dreams come true...Well, isn't it?" (Stephen Schwartz)

"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. "

(Eleanor Roosevelt)

Be curious, not judgmental.

(Walt Whitman)

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

(Albert Einstein)

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined" (Henry Thoreau)

"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors." (Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to Samuel Kercheval)
