"The possibility for embarrassment and greatness usually exist in the same space."
Paul Angone “101 Secrets For Your Twenties”
"Life is a journey, not a destination."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same."
"My best relationships were with people who took pleasure in the same things I did—who agreed that traveling was worth splurging on, and that it’s better to spend too much at a restaurant with romantic ambiance than $10 on noodles under fluorescent lights. Because even if you both have a ton of money, it’s of no use if you can’t agree on how to spend it. Money can be an intermediary between you and what you find important in the world, an expression of values and what you define as “the good life.” Finding someone who shares your definition is (almost) priceless."
Karley Sciortino “The Biggest Taboo in Relationships Isn’t Sex - It’s Money”(VOGUE)
Tony Hsieh “Delivering Happiness”
"Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run; To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees, And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells With a sweet kernel; to set budding more, And still more, later flowers for the bees, Until they think warm days will never cease, For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells."
John Keats “To Autumn”
"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."
"Love lasts about seven years. That’s how long it takes for the cells of the body to totally replace themselves."
"I am no longer in love with her, that’s certain, but maybe I love her. Love is so short, forgetting is so long"
"One good conversation, one good break, one good TED talk, can have an enormous effect across years and even generations to come. Thirty is not the new 20s, so claim your adulthood, get some identity capital, use your weak ties, pick your family. Don’t be defined by what you didn’t know or didn’t do. You are deciding your life right now."
Meg Jay “Why 30 is not the new 20”
"Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing."
"We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are."
"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage."
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."
