"Life is a series of pulls back and forth... A tension of opposites, like a pull on a rubber band. Most of us live somewhere in the middle. A wrestling match...Which side win? Love wins. Love always wins"
"All endings are also beginnings. We just don't know it at the time."
"Death ends a life, not a relationship."
"Accept who you are; and revel in it."
"Well, for one thing, the culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. We're teaching the wrong things. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn't work, don't buy it. Create your own. Most people can't do it."
"Strangers are just family you have yet to come to know."
"Each affects the other, and the other affects the next, and the world is full of stories, but the stories are all one."
"It is no coincidence that the words 'trying' and 'dying' are only a few letters apart."
"Love wins, love always wins."
"One day can bend your life."
"Don't cling to things because everything is impermanent."
"Devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."
