“I signed a bill saying that every hospital must treat gay and lesbian partners the same as heterosexual partners, because NO ONE should have to produce a legal contract to be able to hold the hand of the one they love.”—President Barack Obama - Human Rights Campaign Dinner (10/1/11)
“This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds.
To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance.
A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky,
Rushing by, like a torrent down a steep mountain.”—Buddha ( via Izzzze )
“Now is the time for peace, not later. Later is the place where things die; they cease to exist. Give your anxiety and your emotional turmoil to later. Worry about it later. Allow yourself peace in the now. And then face the later with that peace.”—The Divine Guru (via sol-psych)
“There are days when solitude, for someone my age, is a heady wine that intoxicates you with freedom, others when it is a bitter tonic, and still others when it is a poison that makes you beat your head against the wall.”—
“ Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way.”—Janet Fitch (via thatkindofwoman)
