“When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire kind people.”

“Don’t let what he wants eclipse what you need. He’s very dreamy, but he is not the sun. You are.”

“Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.”

“Hard times build determination and inner strength. Through them we can also come to appreciate the uselessness of anger.”

“When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways – either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our strengths.”

“The word ‘romance’ according to the dictionary, means excitement, adventure, and something extremely real. Romance should last a lifetime.”

“Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love, or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence,  or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.”
