Quotes
  • "The opposite of loneliness, it's not togetherness. It is intimacy."
     
  • "Next to God, love is the word most mangled in every language. The highest form of regard between two people is friendship, and when love enters, friendship dies."
     
  • “There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they're necessary to reach the places we've chosen to go.”
     
  • "Here's how people live here, in big house-shaped boxes to keep off "rain" and "snow," holes cut in the sides so they can see out. They move around in smaller boxes, painted different colors, with wheels on the corners. They need this box-culture because each person thinks of herself and himself as locked in a box called "body," arms and legs, fingers to move pencils and tools, languages because they've forgotten how to communicate, eyes because they've forgotten how to see."
     
  • “From time to time it's fun to close our eyes, and in that dark say to ourselves, 'I am the sorcerer, and when I open my eyes I shall see a world that I have created, and for which I and only I am completely responsible.' Slowly then, eyelids open like curtains lifting stage-center. And sure enough, there's our world, just the way we've built it."
     
  • "Look in a mirror and one thing's sure: what we see is not who we are."
     
  • "The only thing that shatters dreams is compromise."
     
  • "The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it."
     
  • “That's what learning is, after all; not whether we lose the game, but how we lose and how we've changed because of it and what we take away from it that we never had before, to apply to other games. Losing, in a curious way, is winning.”
     
  • “It is by not always thinking of yourself, if you can manage it, that you might somehow be happy. Until you make room in your life for someone as important to you as yourself, you will always be searching and lost...”
     
  • “Do you know what I learned from you? I learned what is possible, and now I must hold out for what I thought we had. I want to be very close to someone I respect and admire and have somebody who feels the same way about me. That or nothing. I realized that what I'm looking for is not what you're looking for. You don't want what I want.”
     
  • " 'Boredom between two people, she said one evening, doesn't come from being together, physically. It comes from being apart, mentally and spiritually.' Obvious to her, it was such a startling thought to me that I wrote it down."
     
  • "We're the bridge across forever, arching above the sea, adventuring for our pleasure, living mysteries for the fun of it, choosing disasters triumphs challenges impossible odds, testing ourselves over and again, learning love and love and LOVE!"
