Do not seek to be loved at any price, because Love has no price.

If you only walk on sunny days you'll never reach your destination.

Sometimes I need to be a stranger to myself. Only then my soul can show me not what I want, but what I need to see.

Life is short. Kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly

Close some doors today. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they lead you nowhere.

Don’t explain. Your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe you.

To live is to experience things, not sit around pondering the meaning of life.

Real love is composed of ecstasy and agony.

When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.

The secret of life is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.

The act of discovering  who we are will force us to accept that we can go further than we think.

One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.

You start living for the obsession alone… You want to arrive somewhere regardless of whether you’re enjoying the road or not.

To realize one’s personal legend is one’s only true obligation.

We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.
