My thoughts exactly.

“Nothing in the world is permanent, and we’re foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it. If change is of the essence of existence one would have thought it only sensible to make it the premise of our philosophy.

– W. Somerset Maugham, “The Razor’s Edge”

 

“It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit.

Eartha Kitt

 

“The trick, kiddo,” his mom replies slowly. “Is finding someone who complements you instead of completes you. You need to be complete on your own.

– The Fight and Fate, by the farofixer

  • Love the quote by Eartha Kitt and The Fight and Fate.

    Maugham is one of my favourite authors. Such a leisurely yet penetrating read most of the time.
