    Most people think that shadows follow, precede or surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories.

    “I've had so many knives stuck into me, when they hand me a flower I can't quite make out what it is. It takes time.”
    — Charles Bukowski
    and it's nice enough to
    make a man
    weep, but I don't
    weep, do
    you?

    “I am not against rules, but the rules should arise out of your understanding. They should not be imposed from the outside. I am not against discipline but discipline should not be slavery. All true discipline is self-discipline. And self-discipline is never against freedom—in fact, it is the ladder to freedom. Only disciplined people become free, but their discipline is not obedience to others: their discipline is obedience to their own inner voice. And they are ready to risk anything for it. Let your own awareness decide your lifestyle, life pattern. Don’t allow anybody else to decide it. That is a sin, to allow anybody else to decide it. Why is it a sin? Because you will never be in your life. It will remain superficial, it will be hypocrisy.”

    ― Osho

    “They were afraid of your authentic love, because authentic love is beyond their control.You are possessed by it. You are not the possessor, you are the possessed. And every society wants you to be in control. The society is afraid of your wild nature, it is afraid of your naturalness, so from the very beginning it starts cutting your wings. And the most basic thing which is dangerous in you is the possibility of love, because if you are possessed by love you can go even against the whole world.”

    ― Osho

    Oh, I have a notebook with about 80 pages of quotes (I don't know what I have in there, but every once in a while I open a random page and read).

    My favourite of all is this:



    *Then, probably EVERY entry from The Unabridged Devil's Dictionary, by Ambrose Bierce (a dictionary for cynical people).

    *“If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.”
    ― George Orwell, 1984
    (George Orwell's books have tons of excerpts I could write here)

    *Then I should quote Fernando Pessoa (and all his heteronyms), because it's like he has put my mind into paper:



    Oh, and this one, from The Book of Disquiet:



    Weeeell, too much to read, I'll keep checking my library for more now.

    "Why tell you me of moderation?
    The grief is fine, full, perfect, that I taste,
    And violenteth in a sense as strong
    As that which causeth it: how can I moderate it?
    If I could temporize with my affection,
    Or brew it to a weak and colder palate,
    The like allayment could I give my grief.
    My love admits no qualifying dross;
    No more my grief, in such a precious loss."

    - Cressida (Troilus and Cressida, Act IV scene iv)

    "Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore, trust the physician and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility."
