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.

Some suggestions for you :

For when those walls come down, then love takes over, and it no longer matters what is possible or impossible; it doesn't even matter whether we can keep the loved one at our side. To love is to lose control.

It isn't what you did in the past that will affect the present. It's what you do in the present that will redeem the past and thereby change the future.

The dunes are changed b the wind, but the desert never changes. That's the way it will be with our love for each other.

If it's still in your mind, it's worth taking the risk.

A mental hospital, insanity, an insane asylum, where people were not ashamed to say that they were crazy, where no one stopped doing something they were enjoying just to be nice to others.

You are someone who is different, but who wants to be the same as everyone else. And that in my view is a serious illness. God chose you to be different. Why are you disappointing God with this kind of attitude?

And anyone who interferes with the Personal Legend of another thing never will discover his own.

Dreaming isn't as simple as it seems. On the contrary, it can be quite dangerous. When we dream, we put powerful engines in motion and can no longer hide the true meaning of our life from ourselves. When we dream, we also make a choice of what price to pay. Now. The longer I take, the more suffering I'll cause us both.

I prefer to be crazy and happy rather than normal and bitter.

The best way to avoid trouble is to share responsibility, his father had taught him.

After reading about ten of those self-help books, I saw that they were leading nowhere. They have an immediate effect, but that effect stops as soon as I close the book. They're just words, describing an ideal world that doesn't exist, not even for the people who wrote them.

Hide your craziness behind a beautiful smile. That's all you need.

Because I don't live in either my past or my future. I'm interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you'll be a happy man. You'll see that there is life in the desert, that there are stars in the heavens, and that tribesmen.

After a certain age, you have to do irrelevant thing-to pass the time, to show others that you body is still in working order, to express that you still appreciate the value of money and can still carry out certain humble tasks.
