I love you because you are human.
But I can’t love the way you are as human.
No one heals himself by wounding another.
Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and stars. In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.
Having a soft heart in a cruel world is courage, not weakness.
Once you know with absolute certainty that nothing can trouble you but your own imagination, you come to disregard your desires and fears, your concepts and ideas and you live by truth alone.
