"You deserve a love that feels like time travel while standing still. Like you've known them in every life, and you're just now remembering."
- Erin Van Vuren
"Your standards will change over time. With every choice. Every heartbreak. First, you will hold a thorn in your hands as if it were a rose. Then one day you'll wake up and accept nothing less than a forest."
- Erin Van Vuren
"We often often look for kindness back in the same place we gave it, and mostly that is where we go wrong. Kindness does not work that way, you put your kind deeds into the universe and the universe reflects back that energy into your life, from unexpected avenues at most appropriate time."
- Drishti Bablani
"If I can say, “I love you,” I say, “I love in you all of humanity, all that is alive; I love in you also myself.” Self-love, in this sense, is the opposite of selfishness. The latter is actually a greedy concern with oneself which springs from and compensates for the lack of genuine love for oneself. Love, paradoxically, makes me more independent because it makes me stronger and happier — yet it makes me one with the loved person to the extent that individuality seems to be extinguished for the moment. In loving I experience “I am you,” you — the loved person, you — the stranger, you — everything alive. In the experience of love lies the only answer to being human, lies sanity."
-Erich Fromm, The Sane Society.
