"Our lives are not our own. We are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future." "My life amounts to no more than one drop in a limitless ocean. Yet what is any ocean, but a multitude of drops?" "I have no right to call myself one who knows. I was one who seeks, and I still am, but I no longer seek in the stars or in books; I'm beginning to hear the teachings of my blood pulsing within me. My story isn't pleasant, it's not sweet and harmonious like the invented stories; it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves." " 'I’m bored’ is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless; it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say ‘I’m bored'." "You don't know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have" "Sanity is a madness put to good uses; waking life is a dream controlled." “In the book of life, the answers aren't in the back.” "Sometimes, someone says something so small and it just fits right into this empty place in your heart."
