“Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
"You do not need to be loved, not at the cost of yourself. The single relationship that is truly central and crucial in a life - is the relationship to the self. Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will never lose."
