“To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.”

 “Unbeing dead isn’t being alive.”

“Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.”

“I’d rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance”

“The three saddest things are the ill wanting to be well, the poor wanting to be rich, and the constant traveler saying ‘anywhere but here’.”
