An Inspired Existence

"You still have a story to tell. Nothing about you is over yet. Tell it well. Finish strong. Don't look in the rearview too long. No matter what's been done or done to you, you can still be you, truly. No one else can write your story. Live it well." -J.S. Park

"We're supposed to feel. We're supposed to love. And hate. And hurt. And grieve. And break and be destroyed, and we build ourselves to be destroyed again. That is human. That is humanity, that's being alive. That's the point. That's the entire point. Don't avoid it. Don't extinguish it." -Owen Hunt

"I'm an observer. I read about life. I research life. I find a corner in a room and melt into it. I can become invisible. It's an art, and I am a wonderful practitioner." -Christine Feehan

"She isn't so hard to understand. You are just treating her like she is a tree when she is an entire forest." -Nikita Gill

"The world has a soul and whoever understands that soul can also understand the language of many things." -Paulo Coelho

"Tears shed for another person are not a sign of weakness. They are a sign of a pure heart." -José N. Harris

"Facing it- always facing it- that's the way to get through." -Joseph Conrad

"You will never make a good impression on other people until you stop thinking about what sort of impression you are making. Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original- whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring how often it has been told before), you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it. The principle runs through all life from top to bottom: give up yourself, and you will find your real self.  Lose your life, and you will save it. Submit to death- death of your ambitions and favorite wishes, and death of your whole body- in the end submit with every fiber of your being- and you will find eternal life. Keep back nothing. Nothing that you have not given away will be really yours." -C.S. Lewis
