I have been keeping that « uniform » of mine for 10 years. You know the MSF T-shirt, the kaki pants and the Dr. Martens… I would move across continents and take them with me, […]
"I believe in a future where the point of education is not to prepare your for another useless job, but for a life well lived."- Rutger Bregman, Journalist and Author.

"Your job is not to be perfect. Your job is only to be human. And nothing important happens in life without a cost."
- Fred Rogers
"If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person."
- Eleanor Roosevelt, We Learn By Living.
"One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In stopping to think through the meaning of what I have learned, there is much I believe intensely, much I am unsure of. But this, at least, I believe with all my heart: In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility."
- Viktor Frankl, The Feeling of Meaninglessness.
"It is the very problem of our time that people are caught by a pervasive feeling of meaninglessness, which is the most conspicuous symptom of the collective neurosis of our time. It is accompanied by a feeling of emptiness. The "existential vacuum" has increased and spread literally all over the world. Our industrialised society is out to satisfy all needs, and our consumer society is even out to create needs in order to satisfy them; but the most human of all human needs - the need to see a meaning in one's life - remains unsatisfied. People may have enough to live by; but more often than not they do not have anything to live for."
- Viktor Frankl, Man's Search For Meaning.
“Don't aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it”
- Eleanor Roosevelt
“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
