“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’”
Courage originally meant “To speak one’s mind by telling all one’s heart.””
“The difficult thing is that vulnerability is the first thing I look for in you and the last thing I’m willing to show you. In you, it’s courage and daring. In me, it’s weakness.”
“Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.”
You can express a lot of things, a lot of action without speaking.

What is stronger than the human heart which shatters over and over and still lives.
A person with whom you have an immediate connection the moment you meet – a connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before. As this connection develops over time, you are experiencing a love so deep, strong, and complex, that you begin to doubt that you have ever truly loved anyone prior.

One day, whether you are 14, 28 or 65,
you will stumble upon someone who will start a fire in you that cannot die.
However, the saddest, most awful truth you will ever come to find––
is they are not always with whom we spend our lives”

When someone cries, it’s not usually over one thing. It’s built up over anger and emotions that they have been holding in for too long.
“If you want to do something courageous, try Love.”
“If you’re only looking out for yourself, you will always be scared. But if there are other factors, other concerns and considerations driving you, you will always find the strength and courage to overcome the danger and the fear.”
A talent is formed in stillness, a character in the world’s torrent.

Only love can be divided endlessly and still not diminish.

“Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”
