Ralph Smart

"The training of the mind is an art. If this can be considered as art, one’s life is art. I am not interested in the physical aspect of art. I simply meditate and train my mind. And as far as external appearance is concerned, nature in its pristine form is also art."

Dalai Lama

"People aren’t born good or bad. Maybe they’re born with tendencies either way, but its the way you live your life that matters."

Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

"Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself."

Unknown

"Do not shorten the morning by getting up late, or waste it in unworthy occupations or in talk; look upon it as the quintessence of life, as to a certain extent sacred. Evening is like old age: we are languid, talkative, silly. Each day is a little life: every waking and rising a little birth, every fresh morning a little youth, every going to rest and sleep a little death."

Arthur Schopenhauer, Counsels and Maxims 

"There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself."

Henry David Thoreau 

"Cinema should make you forget you are sitting in a theater."

Roman Polanski 

"Start now. Start where you are. Start with fear. Start with pain. Start with doubt. Start with hands shaking. Start with voice trembling but start. Start and don’t stop. Start where you are, with what you have. Just … start."
