Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion.
All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does, and that is his.

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.
— Paulo Coelho (via purplebuddhaproject)
Take the risk of thinking for yourself. Much more happiness, truth, beauty, and wisdom will come to you that way.
We’re not the same person we were a year ago, a month ago, or a week ago. We’re constantly changing. Experiences don’t stop. That’s life.
However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?
