    “Riding on the streets of loneliness
    I drift on roads that take me
    on unknown paths
    I have become the wanderer again
    in search of an ineffable nothingness...”

    “The nature of consciousness is to point beyond itself. It is a tending toward or pointing to... Since consciousness points beyond itself, it is in its very being a self-transcendence.”

    “Sam’s body language looked pretty stiff. I was too far away to hear, but I imagined her conversation with Alex was something like:
    Sam: Awkward.
    Alex: Awkward, awkward.
    Sam (nodding): Awkward, awkward, awkward.”

    "Our minds, as well as our bodies, have need of the out-of-doors. Our spirits, too, need simple things, elemental things, the sun and the wind and the rain, moonlight and starlight, sunrise and mist and mossy forest trails, the perfumes of dawn and the smell of fresh-turned earth and the ancient music of wind among the trees."
    ~ Edwin Way Teale

    “The more you know yourself, the more clarity there is. Self-knowledge has no end - you don't come to an achievement, you don't come to a conclusion. It is an endless river.”― Jiddu Krishnamurti

    “Worlds were never meant to be prisons, locked and suffocating and safe. Worlds were supposed to be great rambling houses with all the windows thrown open and the wind and summer rain rushing through them, with magic passages in their closets and secret treasure chests in their attics.”
    ― Alix E. Harrow, The Ten Thousand Doors of January

    “There will come a time when acceptance will come to meet you. Your shoulders will soften. The sky will stretch out before you and the night will feel warm and comforting. Once you are free of resentful thoughts you will surely find peace. Your soul will be lifted. Wherever you are, you will feel free.”
    ― Susan Bocinec Terry, Moods and Musings

    “Happiness is in the quiet, ordinary things. A table, a chair, a book with a paper-knife stuck between the pages. And the petal falling from the rose, and the light flickering as we sit silent.”
    ― Virginia Woolf, The Waves

    “And I, infinitesimal being,
    drunk with the great starry
    void,
    likeness, image of
    mystery,
    I felt myself a pure part
    of the abyss,
    I wheeled with the stars,
    my heart broke loose on the wind.”
    ― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

    “Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future; live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
