I dream of a world full of love <3

Imagine what could be if everyone loved themselves and others too?!

Maybe it's a silly idea, but get yourself a handful of love fortune cookies and we'll see if it works - the cookies are free and digital - let's bend the universe together! <3

Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: "I'm with you kid. Let's go."

Maya Angelou

Writer Maya Angelou is best known for her heartrending 1969 memoir “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” which describes a childhood that was unsteady and often traumatic, including a five-year period where she became mute after an assault. But she blossomed in young adulthood, discovering a love for literature and writing. Angelou was the first Black woman to drive a San Francisco streetcar, and tried out careers in singing and acting before becoming a writer. Her remarkable life experiences stand as a reminder that bold action makes our lives fuller and more interesting — as long as we continue to embrace what’s possible.

Success always demands a greater effort.

Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill, one of the greatest orators in modern history, often spoke about success in life and politics. He was frequently misquoted on the subject, too. But we do know that he said, “Success always demands a greater effort,” as he wrote it in December 1940 to Australian Prime Minister Robert Menzies, while discussing troop deployments around the world and his plan to “gather a very large army representing the whole empire.” Ultimately, few people were more inspiring or influential in World War II than Churchill, in what was one of the most important and necessary successes in human history: victory against Nazi Germany and the Axis forces.

Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it.

Gilda Radner

When it came time for comic performer Gilda Radner to title her candid 1989 autobiography, the Emmy winner decided on one of her famous catchphrases (as Roseanne Roseannadanna) from Saturday Night Live: “It’s always something.” Radner’s brutally honest book dealt with her sudden confrontation with death after a terminal cancer diagnosis at age 40, and also reflected on how to best live out one’s days. With these words, Radner concludes that life often does not go according to plan, and true happiness can depend on how we react and move forward when life changes course.

To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.

Pema Chödrön

A beloved Buddhist teacher and author, Pema Chödrön has studied Tibetan Buddhism since 1974, and is now a resident teacher at Gampo Abbey, a Western Buddhist monastery in Nova Scotia. Her books, which interpret Buddhist philosophy for a Western audience, often invite the reader to let go of the need for control, and instead lean into life’s frequent upheavals and changes. Here, she reminds us that the moments we feel the most off balance are deceptive: They are also often the moments in which we experience the most growth.

Curiosity is, in great and generous minds, the first passion and the last.

Samuel Johnson

Curiosity is never-ending. As English author Samuel Johnson wrote in the 18th century, it expands your mind — and the more that happens, the more curious you become. Johnson explained, “He who easily comprehends all that is before him, and soon exhausts any single subject, is always eager for new inquiries; and in proportion as the intellectual eye takes in a wider prospect, it must be gratified with variety, by more rapid flights and bolder excursions.” So as we learn, our thirst for knowledge deepens, and our curiosity leads us to explore even further — turning learning into a lifelong process of enrichment.

Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves.

Etty Hillesum

While enduring the horrors of a concentration camp in 1943, Dutch author Etty Hillesum wrote these profound words in her diary. As she ruminated on the vital importance of remaining present in each day and banishing the worries of tomorrow from her spirit, Hillesum realized that the only thing we have control over is our own minds. If we can find peace within, we can make a difference in the lives of those around us.

Love isn’t a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like 'struggle.'

Fred Rogers

Ah, Mister Rogers, the wholesome father figure whom generations of kids grew to cherish thanks to his regularly shared nuggets of wisdom. He had so much good advice, in fact, that he filled an entire book with it, called “You Are Special: Words of Wisdom for All Ages From a Beloved Neighbor.” In this quote from that book, Mister Rogers tells us that love isn’t effortless. You can care about someone easily, but to continue to care about them as they grow and change — and sometimes cause pain — takes some work. But some things are worth working for, and when it comes to love, it’s almost always worth it to put in the effort.

Your own path you make with every step you take. That's why it's your path.

Joseph Campbell

Renowned for popularizing the concept of the “hero’s journey” in storytelling (in which the hero goes on an adventure, learns a lesson, and returns transformed), writer and mythologist Joseph Campbell posits here that we can’t follow someone else’s footsteps to success, happiness, or fulfillment. There is no set template for how a life should be lived: It is your life, after all, and you must make each step of the way uniquely your own.
