"I came to the conclusion long ago that all religions were true and that also that all had some error in them, and while I hold by my own religion, I should hold other religions as dear as Hinduism. So we can only pray, if we were Hindus, not that a Christian should become a Hindu; but our innermost prayer should be that a Hindu should become a better Hindu, a Muslim a better Muslim, and a Christian a better Christian."
Mahatma Gandhi (via purplebuddhaproject)
"Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean."

"The First Splendid Truth: To be happy, I need to think about feeling good, feeling bad, and feeling right, in an atmosphere of growth."

"It’s no good trying to get rid of your own aloneness. You’ve got to stick to it — all your life. Only at times, at times, the gap will be filled in. At times! But you have to wait for the times. Accept your own aloneness and stick to it, all your life. And then accept the times when the gap is filled in, when they come. But they’ve got to come. You can’t force them."
D. H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley’s Lover (via distantheartbeats)
