"home is where one starts from."
"love begins at home, and it is not how much we do … but how much love we put in that action."
"if you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
so if you love a flower, let it be.
love is not about possession.
love is about appreciation."
"what lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."

"we are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be."
"one of the most amazing things that can happen is finding someone who sees everything you are and won’t let you be anything less. they see the potential of you. they see endless possibilities. and through their eyes, you start to see yourself the same way. as someone who matters. as someone who can make a difference in this world."
