"Some day, the world will discover that, without thought, there can be no love."
— Apollo and Dionysus - Ayn Rand
“A woman’s highest calling is to lead a man to his soul, so as to unite him with the source; her lowest calling is to seduce, separating man from his soul and leave him aimlessly wandering.
A man’s highest calling is to protect woman, so she is free to walk the earth unharmed. Man’s lowest calling is to ambush and force his way into the life of a woman.”
— Native American Cherokee Proverb

"You’re not good at relationships because you don’t value them."
— Roger Sterling - fictional character
"There’s a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasn’t because I thought I’d be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It’s easier to be alone. Because what if you learn you need love and then you don’t have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it, and then it falls apart? Can we even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It’s like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever."
— Damn it.
"I like men who have a future and women who have a past."

"You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage - pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically - to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside.
The enemy of the ‘best’ is often the ‘good.’"
"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power."
The comfort of the known territory is an illusion. Learn to let go. I would get that tattooed if it helped with anything.
