People never learn anything by being told, they have to find out for themselves.

Stay mad, but behave like normal people. Run the risk of being different, but learn to do so without attracting attention.

We are travelers on a cosmic journey,stardust,swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.

When each day is the same as the next, it’s because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.

When we meet someone and fall in love, we have a sense that the whole universe is on our side. And yet if something goes wrong, there is nothing left! How is it possible for the beauty that was there only minutes before to vanish so quickly? Life moves very fast. It rushes from heaven to hell in a matter of seconds.

I can choose either to be a victim of the world or an adventurer in search of treasure. It's all a question of how I view my life.
