Some suggestions for you :

The eyes are the mirror of the soul and reflect everything that seems to be hidden; and, like a mirror, they also reflect the person looking into them. So if the person looking into someone's eyes has a dark soul, he will see only his own ugliness.

Everything spiritual manifests itself visually, everything which is visual turns into spiritual energy, I don't think this is so difficult to grasp. After all, we are born knowing we have a body and a soul: why not understand that sex also has them?

Whenever someone dies, a part of the universe dies too. Everything a person felt, experience and saw dies with them, like tears in the rain.

And yet we feel obliged to repress our emotions and our desires, because they don't fit with what we call maturity.

Anyone who is in love is making love the whole time, even when they're not. When two bodies meet, it is just the cup overflowing. They can stay together for hours, even days. They begin the dance one day and finish it the next, or--such is the pleasure they experience--they may never finish it. No eleven minutes for them.

I know you don't love me. But I'm going to fight for your love. There are some things in life that are worth fighting for the end. You are worth it.

In the beginning there was only a small amount of injustice abroad in the world, but everyone who came afterwards added their portion, always thinking it was very small and unimportant, and look where we have ended up today.

Playing the part of a charitable soul was only for those who were afraid of taking a stand in life.

These seeds will always be tulips, even if at the moment you cannot tell them apart from other flowers. They will never turn into roses or sunflowers, no matter how much they might desire to. And if they try to deny their own existence, they will live life bitter and die.

Magic is a bridge, he said at last, a bridge that allows you to walk from the visible world over into the invisible world, and to learn the lessons of both those worlds.
