.. about travelling and growing as a person, in being part of the social world…

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

Marilyn Monroe

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Be what you are. This is the first step toward becoming better than you are.”                      Julius Hare

No man is an island”  by John Donne

No man is an island entire of itself; every man
is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
well as a manor of thy friends or of thine
own were; any man’s death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee

“Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation, and a pinch of creativity.”                  (Bo Bennett)

You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.” (Jonathan Safran Foer)

“It’s a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.” Lucille Ball

“The less you expect, the more pleasant life gets” 

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step …”

“Know Thyself”
