“I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up—many people feel small, because they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.”—Neil Degrasse Tyson
“What men and women need is encouragement. Their natural resisting powers should be strengthened, not weakened…Instead of always harping on a man’s faults, tell him of his virtues. Try to pull him out of his rut…Hold up to him his better self, his real self that can dare and do and win out!…People radiate what is in their minds and in their hearts.”—Eleanor H. Porter
“Too often, we decide to follow a path that is not really our own, one that others have set for us. We forget that, whichever way we go, the price is the same:
in both cases we will pass through both difficult and happy moments.
But when we are living our dream, the difficulties we encounter make sense.”—Paulo Coelho
