The scariest moment is always just before you start. After that, things can only get better.
Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
As the crickets’ soft autumn hum
is to us
so are we to the trees
as are they
to the rocks and the hills
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
I don’t count my sit-ups. I only start counting when it starts hurting because they’re the only ones that count.
Hat man sein Warum des Lebens, so verträgt man sich fast mit jedem Wie.
Believe one who knows: you will find something greater in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.
Saint Bernard de Clairvaux
There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
