Wasn’t that the definition of home? 
Not where you are from, but where you are wanted.
— Abraham Verghese 

If it is right, it happens — The main thing is not to hurry. 
Nothing good gets away.
— John Steinbeck

Loneliness is black coffee and late-night television; 
solitude is herb tea and soft music. 
Solitude, quality solitude, is an assertion of self-worth, 
because only in the stillness can we hear the truth of our own unique voices.
— Pearl Cleage 

We’d said we’d keep in touch. 
But touch is not something you can keep; 
as soon as it’s gone, it’s gone. 
We should have said we’d keep in words,
because they are all we can string between us — 
words on a telephone line, words appearing on a screen.
—  David Levithan 

Dua for Happiness:

ربي اجعل ما نمضي إليه أجمل من ما مضى
O Allah, make what we go toward prettier than what has passed.

The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, 
but in finding something to live for. 
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky
