I feel that the simplicity of life is just being yourself.
I can't really explain what it's like to be in love, but I feel like it's being comfortable. It's almost like having a best friend. It's a beautiful thing.
We all fight over what the label 'feminism' means but for me it's about empowerment. It's not about being more powerful than men - it's about having equal rights with protection, support, justice. It's about very basic things. It's not a badge like a fashion item.
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
George Washington Carver
Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
Thomas A. Edison
Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning.
Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it.

Being brilliant is no great feat if you respect nothing.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.
I'm learning a lot about myself being alone, and doing what I'm doing.
Don't waste a minute not being happy. If one window closes, run to the next window- or break down a door.
Loneliness expresses the pain of being alone and solitude expresses the glory of being alone.
Being jealous of a beautiful woman is not going to make you more beautiful.
Zsa Zsa Gabor
Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.
Vulnerability is the essence of romance. It's the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, 'This is me, and I'm interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not.'
To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.
The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.
Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves; vanity, to what we would have others think of us.
Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.
To me, the American Dream is being able to follow your own personal calling. To be able to do what you want to do is incredible freedom.
You never stop learning. If you have a teacher, you never stop being a student.
