"I think we consider too much the luck of the early bird 
and not enough the bad luck of the early worm."
Franklin Roosevelt


"If it is true that there are as many minds as there are heads,
then there are as many kinds of love as there are hearts."
Leo Tolstoy


"The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities;
but to know someone who thinks and feels with us, and who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, 
this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


"Longing is a bit like hunger. It only happens when you eat the presence.
But sometimes the longing is so deep that the presence is petty: one wants to absorve the whole other person. 
This will of one be the other for a whole unification is one of the most urgent feeling one has in life."
Clarice Lispector
