"You have to learn how to care about people without taking on all of their problems."

Phylicia Rashād in The Cosby Show (1987)

"Nothing would have changed the reality that the person you were in love with had stopped loving you somewhere along the line, whether it was in the middle of a conversation or while driving under a bridge or when they made eye contact with someone new and wonderful. It doesn’t matter. Stop wasting your time on them. You don’t need to stop your story just because they are no longer a main character. Do not take back what has already poisoned you. Instead start healing and start healing soon."

Raquel, How to stop loving someone who does not love you

"As a doctor, let me tell you what self-love does:
It improves your hearing, your eyesight, lowers your blood pressure, increases pulmonary function, cardiac output, and helps wiring the musculature. So, if we had a rampant epidemic of self-love then our healthcare costs would go down dramatically. So, this isn’t just some little frou-frou new age notion, oh love yourself honey. This is hardcore science."

Dr. Christiane Northrop, Hungry for Change

"I want something else. I’m not even sure what to call it anymore except I know it feels roomy and it’s drenched in sunlight and it’s weightless and I know it’s not cheap. It’s probably not even real."

Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves

"Why should you worry about the future? You don’t even know the present properly. Take care of the present and the future will take care of itself."
