The delusion

We suffer from the delusion that the entire universe is held in order by the categories of human thought, fearing that if we do not hold to them with the utmost tenacity, everything will vanish into chaos.

~Alan Watts

Life

Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the way it is. The way you cope is what makes the difference.

~Virginia Satir

Perfection

Man thought that the important thing was to have, and did not know that the important thing is to be. The true perfection of man lies, not in what man has, but in what man is.

~Oscar Wilde

Sadness

I have learned that when sadness comes to visit me, all I can do is say “I see you.” I spend some time with it, get up, and say goodbye. I don’t push it away. I own it. And because I own it, I let it go.

~Carolina Zacaria
