Buddha: “If you knew what I know about the power of giving, you would not let a single meal pass without sharing it in some way.”
Edith Sitwell: “Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrat are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd.”

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.”

“Achievement is largely the product of steadily raising one’s levels of aspiration and expectation.”
