"My goal in life is not fame or fortune. It is simply to one day own a library with a ladder."
"We grow fearless by doing those things we fear."
— The Secret Letters of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma (via kari-shma
"I want to taste and glory in each day, and never be afraid to experience pain; and never shut myself up in a numb core of nonfeeling, or stop questioning and criticizing life and take the easy way out. To learn and think: to think and live; to live and learn: this always, with new insight, new understanding, and new love."
"Sometimes I’m terrified of my heart; of its constant hunger for whatever it is it wants. The way it stops and starts."
"We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection."
