Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“It was sunrises that taught me that beauty sometimes only lasts for a couple of moments, and it was sunrise that showed me that all it takes is patience to experience it all over again.”
“I can bear any fear as long as it has meaning.”
“Sympathy is easy. You have sympathy for starving children swatting at flies on the late night commercials. Sympathy is easy because it comes from a position of power. Empathy is getting down on your knees and looking someone else in the eye and realizing you could be them, and that all that seperates you is luck.”
“Are you married?”

“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one … just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”
“Almost. It’s a big word for me. I feel it everywhere. Almost home. Almost happy. Almost changed. Alnost, but not quite. Not yet. Soon, maybe.”

“One of the things that she loves the most about the sea is how it can be both. A place to remember and a place to forget.”
“It hasn’t been easy. I had to learn how to love myself, how to love my messy hair and tired eyes. I had to do everything on my own, not that I had any choice in the matter. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but my god was it worth it because in the end the only person you really have is yourself and if you don’t love you, who will?”
“Despite how open, peaceful and loving you attempt to be, people can only meet you as deeply as they have met themselves.”
