What horrifies me most is the idea of being useless: well-educated, brilliantly promising, and fading out into an indifferent middle age.” ―Sylvia Plath
A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born.

“We’re going to have to come together and realize, the evolution that we’re facing is not the evolution of the human being. That happened 200,000 years ago. We’re already evolved. The evolution that’s in front of us is the evolution of something greater called humanity.
What that means, is you remember when we talked about the human body is 50 trillion cells coming together to make a human unit called the human being? And now we have 7 billion human beings like cells in a body called humanity! So our evolution is all humans recognizing we’re all part of one super organism. When the cells fight each other in your human body, we call that auto immune disease. Well, right now humanity is suffering from auto immune disease because we’re killing each other and not recognizing we’re all one organism.”

Courage allows the successful woman to fail-
and learn powerful lessons-
from the failure-
so that in the end,
she didn’t fail at all.” - Maya Angelou

It’s no good trying to get rid of your own aloneness. You’ve got to stick to it all your life. Only at times, at times, the gap will be filled in. At times! But you have to wait for the times. Accept your own aloneness and stick to it, all your life. And then accept the times when the gap is filled in, when they come. But they’ve got to come. You can’t force them.
