What did my fingers do before they held him? What did my heart do, with its love?

Sylvia Plath

They say that in the second before our death, each of us understands the real reason for our existence, and out of that moment, Heaven or Hell is born. Hell is when we look back during that fraction of a second and know that we wasted an opportunity to dignify the miracle of life. Paradise is being able to say at that moment: "I made some mistakes, but I wasn`t a coward. I lived my life and did what I had to do."

Paulo Coelho

It isn`t what you did in the past that will affect the present. It`s what you do in the present that will redeem the past and thereby change the future.

Paulo Coelho

In so many millennia, the humans never did figure love out. How much is physical, how much in the mind? How much accident and how much fate? Why did perfect matches crumble and impossible couples thrive? [...] Love simply is where it is.

Stephenie Meyer

After all that had happened, how could I miss him? But I did. I did.

Sarah Dessen

Besides the obvious difference, there was not much distinction between losing a best friend and losing a lover: it was all about intimacy. One moment, you had someone to share your biggest triumphs and fatal flaws with; the next minute, you had to keep them bottled inside. One moment, you`d start to call her to tell her a snippet of news or to vent about your awful day before realizing you did not have that right anymore; the next, you could not remember the digits of her phone number.

Jodi Picoult

Everything that comes together falls apart. [...] When you stopped wishing things wouldn`t fall apart, you stopped suffering when they did.

John Green

What did thinking ever do for me, to what great place did thinking ever bring me? I think and think and think. I`ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.

Jonathan Safran Foer

The course of true love never did run smooth.

William Shakespeare

Did perpetual happiness in the Garden of Eden maybe get so boring that eating the apple was justified?

Chuck Palahniuk

Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can - there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.

Sarah Caldwell

In view of the fact that God limited the intelligence of man, it seems unfair that he did not also limit his stupidity.

Konrad Adenauer

If history and science have taught us anything, it is that passion and desire are not the same as truth. The human mind evolved to believe in the gods. It did not evolve to believe in biology. Acceptance of the supernatural conveyed a great advantage throughout prehistory, when the brain was evolving. Thus it is in sharp contrast to biology, which was developed as a product of the modern age and is not underwritten by genetic algorithms. The uncomfortable truth is that the two beliefs are not factually compatible. As a result those who hunger for both intellectual and religious truth will never acquire both in full measure.

Edward O. Wilson

If no one in the entire world cared about you, did you really exist at all?

Cassandra Clare

Creation is not an act but a process; it did not happen five or six thousand years ago but is going on before our eyes. Man is not compelled to be a mere spectator; he may become an assistant, a collaborator, a partner in the process of creation.

Theodosius Dobzhansky
