Sagittarius: “A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.” (Lao Tzu)
You forget everything. The hours slip by. You travel in your chair through centuries you seem to see before you, your thoughts are caught up in the story, dallying with the details or following the course of the plot, you enter into characters, so that it seems as if it were your own heart beating beneath their costumes.
Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary (via flowersinthelibrary)
Cruelty does not make a person dishonest, the same way bravery does not make a person kind.

All that will ever be has already been written long before it happens. There is nothing we can do to stop it.

MORE PRECIOUS THAN A GEM

"A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation. The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime.
But a few days later he came back to return the stone to the wise woman. “I’ve been thinking,” he said, “I know how valuable the stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious. Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me the stone.”

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
