“It takes a huge effort to free yourself from memory”

“Travel is never a matter of money but of courage”

“Love is just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning.”

“In magic - and in life - there is only the present moment, the now. You can't measure time the way you measure the distance between two points. 'Time' doesn't pass. We human beings have enormous difficulty in focusing on the present; we're always thinking about what we did, about how we could have done it better, about the consequences of our actions, and about why we didn't act as we should have. Or else we think about the future, about what we're going to do tomorrow, what precautions we should take, what dangers await us around the next corner, how to avoid what we don't want and how to get what we have always dreamed of.”

“What hurts us is what heals us”

“Only two things can reveal life's great secrets: suffering and love.”

“If you conquer yourself, then you conquer the world”

“It is possible to avoid pain? Yes, but you'll never learn anything. Is it possible to know something without ever having experiencing it? Yes, but it will never truly be part of you.”

“God only allows us to see such things when he wants something to change”
