We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path.
Telling the truth and making someone cry is better than telling a lie and making someone smile.
you would have to give up all else, I alone would expect you to be your sole and exclusive standard
People are never satisfied. If they have a little, they want more. If they have a lot, they want still more. Once they have more, they wish they could be happy with little, but are incapable of making the slightest effort in that direction.
behind the mask of ice that people wear, there beats a heart of fire.
The wise are wise only because they love.
Love is an unconditional commitment to an imperfect person. To love somebody isn`t just a strong feeling. It is a decision, a judgment, and a promise.
Everybody is a political person, whether you say something or you are silent. A political attitude is not whether you go to parliament; it's how you deal with your life, with your surroundings.
I am two women: one wants to have all the joy, passion and adventure that life can give me. The other wants to be a slave to routine, to family life, to the things that can be planned and achieved. I'm a housewife and a prostitute, both of us living in the same body and doing battle with each other.
She didn't need to understand the meaning of life; it was enough to find someone who did, and then fall asleep in his arms and sleep as a child sleeps, knowing that someone stronger than you is protecting you from all evil and all danger
We could go back to the time when we first met: a man in emotional tatters over someone who had left him, and a woman madly in love with her neighbor. I could repeat what I said to you once: 'I'm going to fight to the bitter end.' Well, I fought and I lost, and now I'll just have to lick my wounds a
Knowledge without transformation is not wisdom.
Men always have their reasons. But the fact is that they always wind up leaving.
Long distance relationships are living proof that love is not just physical. I can feel you next to me even when you're thousands of miles away.Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.

We must at all costs avoid saying no because people prefer those who say yes, and this allows us to survive in hostile territory.
Defeat is for the valiant. Only they will know the honor of losing and the joy of winning.

What was broken will never be the same again.
We can never found the soul, just as we can never wound God, but we become imprisoned by our memories, and that makes our lives wretched, even when we have everything we need in order to be happy.
Anyone who tries to imprison love will cut off the spring that feeds it, and the trapped water will grow stagnant and rank.
Everyone's looking for the perfect teacher, but although their teachings might be divine, teachers are all too human, and that's something people find hard to accept. Don't confuse the teacher with the lesson, the ritual with the ecstasy, the transmitter of the symbol with the symbol itself.

It is not time that changes man nor knowledge the only thing that can change someone's mind is love.
I am surprised how difficult for people is to say "I love you". They only say the three magic words when they are sure they will hear "I love you too" back. C'mon! Spread the energy of love without expecting anything! Cowards are incapable of expressing love; it is the prerogative of the brave
