Quotes

Words and thoughts that have stuck with me:

“Not all those who wander are lost.” – JRR Tolkein

“Of all sad words of mouth or pen, the saddest are these: it might have been.” — John Greenleaf Whittier

“To love is to recognize yourself in another.” – Eckhart Tolle

“The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.” — Ernest Hemingway

“Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” – Lao Tzu

Dalai Llama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, said: “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

“Man is only great when he acts from passion.” – Benjamin Disraeli
