"Do not chase people. Be you and do your own thing and work hard. The right people who belong in your life will come to you, and stay."
"You can’t find intimacy—you can’t find home—when you’re always hiding behind masks. Intimacy requires a certain level of vulnerability. It requires a certain level of you exposing your fragmented, contradictory self to someone else. You running the risk of having your core self rejected and hurt and misunderstood."
"Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back, and reasons to stay." - Dalai Lama
"Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding. To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again - this is the brave and happy life."
