Time

Time is a created thing. To say “I don’t have time”, is like saying, “I don’t want to”.

Disenchantment, whether it is a minor disappointment or a major shock, is the signal that things are moving into transition in our lives.

The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots

Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.

– Osho

Personality

The largest part of what we call ‘personality’ is determined by how we’ve opted to defend ourselves against anxiety and sadness.

Broken and Whole

There is some kind of a sweet innocence in being human- in not having to be just happy or just sad- in the nature of being able to be both broken and whole, at the same time.

– C. Joybell

Tears

Tears are words that need to be written.

– Paulo Coelho
