Leonardo DiCaprio // "When I was young, I used to have this thing where I wanted to see everything. I used to think, 'How can I die without seeing every inch of this world?'"
Philippe Petit // "Limits exist only in the souls of those who do not dream."
Salvador Dali // "Where is the real? All appearance are deceitful, the visible surface is deceptive. I look at my hand...it is nerves, muscles, bones. Let us go deeper: it is molecules and acids. Further still: it is an impalpable waltz of electrons and neutrons. Further still: an immaterial nebula. Who can prove that my hand exists?"
Frida Kahlo // "Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light."
Janis Joplin // "I'm just doing what I wanted to and what feels right and not settling for bullshit."
Hayao Miyazaki // "I've become skeptical of the unwritten rule that just because a boy and girl appear in the same feature, a romance must ensue. Rather, I want to portray a slightly different relationship, one where the two mutually inspire each other to live—if I'm able to, then perhaps I'll be closer to portraying a true expression of love."
E.E. Cummings // "Almost anybody can learn to think or believe or know, but not a single human being can be taught to feel. Why? Because whenever you think or you believe or you know, you’re a lot of other people: but the moment you feel, you’re nobody-but-yourself. To be nobody-but-yourself...in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else...means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting."
Bruce Lee // "Emptiness is the starting point. In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup. My friend, drop all your preconceived and fixed ideas and be neutral. Do you know why this cup is useful? Because it is empty."
Albert Camus // "When I was young, I expected people to give me more than they could give: never-ending friendship and constant excitement. Now I expect less than they can actually give: to stay close silently. And their feelings, their friendship, their noble deeds always seem like a miracle to me: a true grace."
