"Be not the slave of your own past.
Plunge into the sublime seas,
dive deep and swim far,
so you shall come back with self respect,
with new power,
with an advanced experience
that shall explain and overlook the old."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"If you ask me what I came to do in this world,
I, an artist, will answer you:
I am here to live out loud."
- Émile Zola
"The deeper that sorrow carves
into your being,
the more joy you can contain."
- Khalil Gibran
"Sometimes I think it's less that I'm busy
and more that I'm just bad at being a human."
- Jim Gaffigan
"To the possession of the self
the way is inward."
"When an inner situation is not
it appears outside as fate."
- C.G. Jung
"Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge.
It requires no accountability, no understanding.
The highest form of knowledge is empathy,
for it requires us to suspend our egos
and live in another's world.
It requires profound purpose
larger then the self kind of understanding."
- Bill Bullard
