"When you start to really know someone, all his physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in his energy, recognize the scent of his skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant."


"I can barely conceive a type of beauty in which there is no melancholy." Charles Baudelaire


"Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”


"I saw you at your lowest point; your miserable, wallowing worst, pitiful and dirty, sorrowful and shamed
and I still love(d) you."


"A mother's love is the fuel that enables a human being to do the impossible."



"Failure teaches us that life is but a draft, an endless rehearsal of a show that will never play."



"A beautiful woman is a beautiful woman, but a beautiful woman with a brain is an absolutely lethal combination."



"I dont understand people whose greatest fear is becoming their parents. I wish I could be half as amazing someday."


"So many people are shut up tight inside themselves like boxes, yet they would open up, unfolding quite wonderfully, if only you were interested in them." Sylvia Plath



"The road to medical knowledge is through the pathological museum and not through an apothecary's shop."


"There are times that God doesn't give you what you want, because sometimes, what you want isn't always what is good for you. Remember God knows best. Just learn to trust him all the time."



"When you look into your mother's eyes, you know that is the purest love you can find on this earth."


"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out."


"Don't be discouraged. No one would ever amount to anything if he didn't try."



"The most beautiful thing in the world is to see your parents smiling and knowing that you are the reason behind that smile."



"Character is how you treat others who can do nothing for you."


"Let them laugh, for you have the secret of bottling the seconds and unspoken words that fall from their lashes like galaxies."
