Some people awaken spiritually without ever coming into contact with any meditation technique or any spiritual teaching. They may awaken simply because they can't stand the suffering anymore. Eckhart Tolle
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.
J. K. Rowling
