If you’re stuck between two options, flip a coin. It works, not because it solves your problem, but while the coin is in the air, you’ll know what your heart is really hoping for.

"Five seagulls are sitting on a dock. One of them decides to fly away. How many seagulls are left?"
"Well...  four."
"No," he responded. "There are still five. Deciding to fly away and actually flying away are two very different things. Listen to me carefully. Despite popular belief to the contrary, there is absolutely no power in intention. The seagull may intend to fly away, may decide to do so, may talk with other seagulls about how wonderful it is to fly, but until the seagull flaps his wings and takes air, he is still on the dock. There's no difference between that gull and all the others. Likewise, there is no difference in the person who intends to do things differently and the one who never thinks about it in the first place."

- Andy Andrews, The Noticer

If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse.

- Jim Rohn

2 A.M. You know. The person you can call at two a.m. and, no matter what, you can count on them. Even if they're alseep or it's cold or you need to be bailed out of jail... they'll come for you. It's like the highest level of friendship. 

- Sarah Dessen, What Happened To Goodbye

You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.

- Mary Anne Radmacher

Never look back unless you are planning to go that way.

- Henry David Thoreau

What if evil doesn’t really exist? What if evil is something dreamed up by man, and there is nothing to struggle against except our own limitations? The constant battle between our will, our desires, and our choices?

- Libba Bray

In life we all have an unspeakable secret, an irreversible regret, an unreachable dream and an unforgettable love.

- Diego Marchi

There’s a saying that goes … ‘you don’t know what you have until it’s gone.’ Truth is, you already knew what you had, you just never thought you’d lose it.

- Unknown

We are all just one small adjustment away from making our lives work.

- How Do You Know

The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd; the longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are. 

- Fernando Pessoa

It isn’t the mountains to climb that wear you out, it’s the pebble in your shoe.

- Muhammad Ali

When things go wrong don’t go with them.

- Elvis Presley

You know, after she died everybody told me that I was going to be okay. That it would take a little time but I’d heal. That didn’t really happen. Not really. What you are feeling right now, Amy. It doesn’t ever really go away. Not completely. It’s not like you’re going to, you know, you’re going back to be the person you were like before they died. The person’s gone. It’s more like something inside of you breaks and your body finds a way to compensate for it. Like, if you busted your right hand, you figure out how to use the left one & sure, you might resist for a while because you get pissed off but you have to learn all this stuff again that no one else does. Eventually your body takes over & it figures it out for you & you’re glad. Because if it were up to you, you, you’d just … look at your busted hand forever. Trying to figure out what it was like before.

- Everwood

We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets. 

- Marilyn Monroe

When we were five, they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our things were answers like astronaut, president, or in my case, princess… When we were ten, they asked us again. We answered - rock star, cowboy, or in my case, gold medallist… But now that we’ve grown up, they want a more serious answer. Well, how about this… Who the hell knows? This isn’t a time to make hard and fast decisions. This is the time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere. Fall in love - a lot. Major in philosophy because there’s no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind. Then change it again because nothing is permanent. So make as many mistakes as you can. That way, someday, when they ask again what we want to be… We won’t have to guess. We’ll know.

- Eclipse

When you learn to accept instead of expect, you’ll have fewer disappointments. 

- Robert Fisher

Life is complicated. It starts before we’re ready, it continues while we’re still trying to figure out the point of it. And it ends long before we’ve worked out just what to do.

- Adrian Tan

Do me a favor… Stand up, walk to wherever the nearest window is, and just look outside. You may not know this, but there’s an entire planets-worth of summers, friends, sunsets, street lamps, songs, late nights, great films, and night skies waiting for you. Your life is as amazing as you want it to be, but first, you have to let it be that way. 

- Chad Sugg

Such is human psychology that if we don’t express our joy, we soon cease to feel it. 

- Lin Yutang

He told me that in Greek, nostalgia literally means the pain from an old wound. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. Goes backwards, forwards, and takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called ‘The Wheel,’ it’s called ‘The Carousel.’ It lets us travel the way a child travels, round and around and back home again, to a place where we know we are loved.

- Don Draper, Mad Men

I know it feels like you have all these options and when you make a decision, you lose a world of possibilities. But the reality is, until you make a decision, you have nothing at all.

- Janet Finch

Sometimes it's better to be clueless about what's happening around you, than to know every bit of information that would silently kill you.

- Unknown

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.

- Albert Einstein
