"I vow to love you, and no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find a way back to each other"
Leo, The Vow, 2012
"They didn’t agree on much. In fact, they didn’t agree on anything. They fought all the time and challenged each other every day. But despite their differences, they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other."
The notebook, movie, 2004.

"The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I hope to give to you forever. I love you. I’ll be seeing you.” 


"I fell in love with Tibet because their essential mission was to keep a continual stream of prayer. To me they kept the world from spinning out of control just by being a civilization on the roof of the world in that continuous state of prayer. The prayers are etched on wheels, they feel them with their hands like braille and turn them. It’s spinning prayer like cloth. That was my perception as a young person. I didn’t quite understand the whole thing but I felt protected. We grew up at a time when nuclear war seemed imminent with air raid drills and lying on the floor under your school desk. To counterbalance that destruction was this civilization of monks living high in the Himalayas who were continuously praying for us, for the planet and for all of nature. That made me feel safe."
—Patti Smith in an interview with Thurston Moore for Bomb Magazine, 1996.

Los sueños no producen éxito por sí mismos. El éxito sostenido llega a través del trabajo sistemático, pero antes necesitamos esos dulces sueños para que nos den la energía y el entusiasmo que solo llegan cuando la aspiración toca los recursos internos.
