These are some of the quotes that have nuzzled my heart and soothed my soul during this Journey:

“I am the happiest of men… Nothing Is more uncertain than my life: what will become of me, what will I do, where will I go??? That is what makes life so wonderful for me.”

Andre Gide

“When we enter a forest phase in our lives we enter a period of wandering and a time of potential soul growth... We may uncover a wellspring of creativity that has been hidden for decades.”‬

‪Jean Shinonda Bolen

"The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware."

Henry Miller

"Have patience with everything that is unresolved in your heart and to try to cherish the questions themselves, like closed rooms or books written in a very strange tongue. Do not search now for the answers which cannot be given you because you could not live them. It is a matter of living everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, one distant day live right into the answer."

Rainer Maria Rilke

"Living is a form of not being sure,

not knowing what next or how.

The moment you know how, you

begin to die a little. The artist

never entirely knows. We guess.

We may be wrong, but we take

leap after leap in the dark."

Agnes de Mille

"I am leaving, leaving it all behind

Anything that is weighing me down

And I give zero f**s about what they think

And how I should live my life...

Cause, the things prescribed for me by society

I ain't taking no more

Carving a path that will soothe the genius I am..."
