"Don’t you dare
For someone else’s comfort -
Do not become small
For people who refuse to grow."
"The secret isn’t to find someone you love spending time with - I love spending time with a lot of people. The secret isn’t to find someone that you find attractive - I find a lot of people attractive for many different reasons. The secret isn’t to find someone who is nice - there are tons of nice people in the world. The secret is to find someone who wants exactly what you want. Someone who is ready to give you all they’ve got, and in turn be ready to accept all the love you have to give. The world is filled with people in relationship of “loves you more” or “I have to act mean so they will like me back” or “I am just not ready.” Please do not waste any more of your precious time. You are an amazing creature. You deserve to be loved until your insides melt. Don’t give up on all the things you want. When you meet the right person you will have zero doubt in your mind. Zero."
"I am not an Arab, nor am I a Muslim. I am not a European, and I have neither the difficulty of living with the guilt of Nazism, nor the responsibility for the British Mandate in Palestine. For me, supporting the Palestinians is not a political matter: it is my human responsibility."
Dr. Swee Chai Ang, the author of From Beirut to Jerusalem
"There are 7 billion people on this planet whom I have not met,
and 195 countries I have not visited.
Yet I am stuck in this insignificant town,
being pressured into making decisions about my future,
when I barely even know who I am."
