Henry Shukman says:

shukman“Peace and kindness have
their best shot when
we accept our own inadequacies, 
when limitation and error
become aspects of ourselves
that we can embrace
rather than strive to mask.” 

Thanks to Jules for this one.

Cassandra Clare says:

“Fate is never fair.
You are caught in a current much stronger than you are; struggle against it and you’ll drown
not just yourself but those who try to save you.
Swim with it.
and you’ll survive”

Rainer Maria Rilke says:

” Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.”
