“Chronic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment. If you have behaved badly, repent, make what amends you can and address yourself to the task of behaving better next time. On no account brood over your wrongdoing. Rolling in the muck is not the best way of getting clean.”

Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

“Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off - then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.”

― Herman Melville, Moby-Dick

Sometimes when you're overwhelmed by a situation - when you're in the darkest of darkness - that's when your priorities are reordered.
- Phoebe Snow

Relish everything that's inside of you, the imperfections, the darkness, the richness and light and everything. And that makes for a full life.
- Sir Anthony Hopkins

I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.
- Og Mandino

If you love large, you've got to hurt large. If you've got a lot of light, you've probably got an equal amount of darkness.
- Sarah McLachlan

I'm not interested in blind optimism, but I'm very interested in optimism that is hard-won, that takes on darkness and then says, 'This is not enough.'
- Colum McCann

"I often felt we lived in a lighted house of glass, and that any moment some thin lipped parchment face would peer through a carelessly unshaded window to obtain a free glimpse of things that the most jaded voyeur would have paid a small fortune to watch." -180

"Solitude was corrupting me. I needed company and care. My heart was a hysterical unreliable organ." -258

“The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful.”

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”

“To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.”

“I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
Alive
with closed eyes
to dash against darkness”

“Yours is the light by which my spirit's born: - you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.”

"You may have heard the world is made up of atoms and molecules, but it's really made up of stories. When you sit with an individual that's been here, you can give quantitative data a qualitative overlay."
