sorry for itself.

without ever having felt sorry for itself.

Aquilo em que acreditamos é sempre maior do que nós. É o que dirige as opções de vida e que, assim sendo, nos constrói.
I don't think about being beautiful or not being beautiful. It's more about feeling confident inside you own skin really and thinking about yourself as little as possible.

...o homem que sabe que o fundamental não é cada homem acreditar em Deus, mas cair na conta de que Deus acredita em cada homem.

No man is an island,

Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were:
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.

John Donne, 1624


No greater battle in life than the battle between the parts of u that want to be healed and the parts of u content remaining broken.

If we open a quarrel between past and present, we shall find that we have lost the future.

Winston Churchill


Awareness is deeper than thinking.
