"Whoever it is in your life—if someone presents such a cancerous environment, it just keeps hurting you and even if they are doing it inadvertently and they just don't know better, you should just not have that person in your life. And it's okay, that's not a hateful situation, you just go your own way." - Kelly Clarkson
“On the crossroads of future most good friends lose themselves to an eternity of regrets. Most of us lose connections unknowingly thinking that it is only natural until we realize the deceit in our understanding and end up craving for something we put to rest a long time ago. Thus begins a morbid curiosity within our conscience.” - Adhish Mazumder
"To be happy we need to forget about achieving, and instead focus on the journey. . . . I know from experience how easy it is to think thoughts like, 'If I could just earn more money…' or 'If I could just live in that city…' or 'If I could just get into that school… THEN I could be happy.' But when we think things like that, we’re almost always wrong about what will make us happier. Instead of wishing you were somewhere else, enjoy where you are. Right now."
"As long as you lack something you yearn for it without cease. if only I could have that one thing, you tell yourself, all my problems would be solved. But once you get it, once the object of your desires is thrust into your hands, it begins to lose its charm. Other wants assert themselves, other desires make themselves felt, and bit by bit you discover that you're right back where you started." - Paul Auster, Mr. Vertigo
“I think perhaps I will always hold a candle for you – even until it burns my hand. And when the light has long since gone …. I will be there in the darkness holding what remains, quite simply because I cannot let go.” - Ranata Suzuki
