“The average human looks without seeing, listens without hearing, touches without feeling, eats without tasting, moves without physical awareness, inhales without awareness of odour or fragrance, and talks without thinking.”
― Leonardo da Vinci
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” – Marilyn Monroe
"Correcting oneself is correcting the whole world.
The sun is simply bright. It doesn’t correct anyone.
Because it shines, the whole world is full of light.
Transforming yourself is a means of giving
light to the whole world."
