“Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain. Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh; let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones; let him fracture your bones and you take his life. Do not be concerned with escaping safely - lay your life before him.”

—   Bruce Lee

“Before you speak, let you words pass through three gates. At the first gate, ask yourself, ‘Is it true?’ At the second gate ask, ‘Is it necessary?’ At the third gate ask, ‘Is it kind?’”

—   Sufi saying

“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

—   Krishnamurti

“You’re beautiful, but you’re empty. No one could die for you.”

“You have to protect yourself from sadness. Sadness is very close to hate. Let me tell you this. This is the thing I learned. If you take in someone else’s poison — thinking you can cure them by sharing it — you will instead store it within you.”

—   The English Patient, Michael Ondaatje (via luxology)
