“The best things for being sad, replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something.
That is the only thing that never fails.

You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies,
you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins;
you may miss your only love,
you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics,
or know your honor trampled in the sewers of baser minds.

There is only one thing for it then—to learn.
Learn why the world wags and what wags it.
That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.

Leaning is the thing for you.
Look at what a lot of things there are to learn—pure science, the only purity there is.
You can learn astronomy in a lifetime, natural history in three, and literature in six.
And then, after you have exhausted a milliard lifetimes in biology and medicine and theocriticism and geography and history and economics—why you start to make a cartwheel out of appropriate wood, or spend fifty years learning to begin to learn to beat your adversary at fencing.
After that you can start again on mathematics, until it is time to learn to plough.”

~ Merlin to Arthur in the Legend of King Arthur, from "The Once and Future King," by T.H. White

“I am no good at love
I betray it with little sins
For I feel the misery of the end
In the moment that it begins
And the bitterness of the last goodbye
Is the bitterness that wins.”

it isn't a sign that they 'don't understand' one another,
but a sign that they have, at last, begun to.”

"It is quite true what Philosophy says:
that Life must be understood backwards.

But that makes one forget the other saying:
that it must be lived—forwards.

The more one ponders this,
the more it comes to mean that life in the temporal existence never becomes quite intelligible,
precisely because at no moment can I find complete quiet to take the backward-looking position."

"The truth is that our finest moments
are most likely to occur when we are feeling
deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled.

For it is only in such moments,
propelled by our discomfort,
that we are likely to step out of our ruts
and start searching for different ways or truer answers."

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

"Everything stored away or hidden discreetly or indiscreetly is also stored in your mind and is subconsciously draining your mental energy.

Once discarded, it is discarded from your mind, and you are free from keeping mental tabs on it."

"If I were asked to give what I consider the single
most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this:

Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life
and when it comes, hold your head high,
look it squarely in eye and say,

'I will be bigger than you.
You cannot defeat me.'"

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do."

Thank you Ideoform for the work you do here. All of this collected wisdom was a pleasure to read.

an ability to share is an ability to love, is an ability to bring depth to the love.
