“Wherever I went in my life,I met people wanting to gobble up something new. Gobble up a new car. Gobble up a new piece of property. Gobble up the latest toy. And then they wanted to tell you about it. ‘Guess what I got? Guess what I got?’
“You know how I always interpreted that? These were people so hungry for love that they were accepting substitutes. They were embracing material things and expecting a sort of hug back. But it never works. You can’t substitute material things for love or for gentleness or for tenderness of for a sense of comradeship. — Tuesdays with Morrie

Dumbledore’s smile was tremulous.

“I am afraid I counted on Miss Granger to slow you up, Harry. I was afraid that your hot head might dominate your good heart. I was scared that, if presented outright with the facts about those tempting objects, you might seize the Hallows as I did, at the wrong time, for the wrong reasons. If you laid hands on them, I wanted you to possess them safely. You are the true master of death, because the true master does not seek to run away from Death. He accepts that he must die, and understands that THERE ARE FAR, FAR WORSE THINGS IN THE LIVING WORLD THAN DYING..”

“Foolish man. You cannot turn me into a phantom because you are frightened. You do not dismiss a muse at whim. If you will not join me–then I shall come to you.”

about loss:
“i’ve got to tell you something, honey. i am letting you go..i once thought that to release the pain was a type of betrayal. i now know that the opposite is true – that the greatest gift i can give to you is to free you from the burden of my grief. if life is so precious that i mourned the loss of yours, how wrong to throw away mine. i wonder if the loss of my life has caused you the same pain that the loss of yours caused me.”

about love:
“this is the paradox that keeps maryanne from my reach – for to go after her, for my heart’s sake, is to be unworthy of her. could it be that to truly love a thing is not to desire it, but to desire happiness for it? if so, i cannot have her back, to relieve my heart at the expense of hers. if i truly love her…”

Alchemist by Paolo Coelho

…. he learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke-the language that everyone on earth was capable of understanding in their heart. It was love. Something older than humanity, more ancient than the desert….
