… To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget. …

"a pair of powerful spectacles has sometimes sufficed to cure a person in love." - nietzsche

you come to love not by finding the perfect person but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.

CHRIS: Hey little dude, how about some ice cream?
STEWIE: Yes I could go for a frozen treat right about now. But no sprinkles. And for every sprinkle I find, I shall kill you.

Being sixteen is a tribulation as much as ecstasy and nobody can find happiness alone.

happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed.

i googled "joy quotes" just to cheer myself up--go figure !! this was in top place
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”

C.S. Lewis quote

a man who as a physical being is always turned toward the outside, thinking that his happiness lies outside him, finally turns inward and discovers that the source is within him. -kierkegaard

i only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, i found, was really going in.

Your inside is out and your outside is in
Your outside is in and your inside is out
So come on
Come on

Each time I see the Upside-Down Man
Standing in the water,
I look at him and start to laugh,
Although I shouldn't oughtter.
For maybe in another world
Another time
Another town,
Maybe HE is right side up
And I am upside down.

Shel Silverstein: Reflection
