Erwin T. Randall

True friends are those who, when you make a fool of yourself, don’t believe that this condition is permanent.

Margaret Young

Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.

Edna Ferber

Living the past is a dull and lonely business; looking back strains the neck muscles, causing you to bump into people not going your way.

Damien Rice

i remember it well, the first time i saw your head around the door, 'cause mine stopped working.

Earth, Wind & Fire - September

Ba de ya - say do you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day

Elizabeth Gilbert

There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I'm going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts.

Marguerite Yourcenar

O lamentável é que, porque desejos de vez em quando se tornam realidade, a agonia da esperança se perpetua. The unfortunate thing is that, because wishes sometimes come true, the agony of hoping is perpetuated.
Em Denier du rêve (1934)

Marguerite Yourcenar

No conjunto, é somente por orgulho, por ignorância grosseira, por covardia, que nos recusamos a ver, no presente, lineamentos das épocas que virão.

Fiódor Dostoievski

Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.

Em The Brothers Karamazov

Moloko - The Time is Now

Leo Buscaglia

Let go. Why do you cling to pain? There is nothing you can do about the wrongs of yesterday. It is not yours to judge. Why hold on to the very thing which keeps you from hope and love?

Stephen R. Covey

Don't argue for other people's weaknesses. Don't argue for your own. When you make a mistake, admit it, correct it, and learn from it - immediately.

Douglas Adams

Quando se culpa os outros, renuncia-se à capacidade de mudar.
- When you blame others, you give up your power to change.

Sex and the City

Sometimes it’s easier to say that you don’t care… than to explain all the reasons why you do.

You change for two reasons:
either you learn enough that you want to
or you’ve been hurt enough that you have to.

Jonathan Safran Foer

I hope that one day you will have the experience of doing something you do not understand for someone you love.

Em Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

The Fox and the Hound

Forever is a long, long time, and time has a way of changing things.

Deepak Chopra

To hold on to anything is like holding your breath. If you persist you’ll suffocate.

Georg Simmel

A man is well educated when he knows where to find what he doesn’t know.

Faith does not require understanding. Most of us don’t know how the respiratory system works, yet, we still breathe in and out. Most of us have no idea what is going on underneath the hood of our cars, yet, we still drive to work every morning. Most of us don’t have the slightest clue how the internet works, yet, we still rely on it every day to get work done. In everything we do, life requires a little bit of faith.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

Haruki Murakami

No matter what they wish for, no matter how far they go, people can never be anything but themselves.

James Frey

I think it’s bullshit. People don’t want to accept the responsibility for their own weakness, so they place the blame on something that they’re not responsible for, like disease or genetics. As far as studies go, I could prove I was from Mars if you gave me enough time and enough resources.

Em A Million Little Pieces

Taylor Swift

I took a chance, I took a shot
and you might think I’m bulletproof
but I’m not

Em Tell Me Why

Ângela Brandão

Eu, que estou no palco mas que sou platéia
Às vezes, não faço a menor idéia
De quem é esse outro eu que atua

Eu sigo assim
Falando tanto quanto estou calado
Achando graça quanto estou chorando
Fazendo samba quando eu quero um fado

Eu sigo assim
Às vezes, caminhando ao meu lado
E, às vezes, como um trem descarrilhado
Eu simplesmente vou sem mim.

Em Eu vou sem mim
