"We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive."
"Before something great happens, everything falls apart. Just hold on long enough to get through the smoke screen."
"One day I will forgive you; until then there are scabs everywhere that you have touched me."
