You yearn to stay in this in-between place, where the beauty of the times you have freshly bade farewell to is still alive and vivid in your mind

Moments later, I was climbing nervously into the back of the car. The driver wore the archetypal expression of an antagonist. No words were exchanged beyond the brief lines uttered to this nameless stranger, whose inclinations remained unclear. The car sped along empty roads and traversed dingy alleyways. Music blared from its speakers. I did not remember exhaling throughout the entire journey.

Integrity and self trust are the two important powers that can help you to reach success.
Elizabeth Gaskell
I'll not listen to reason... reason always means what someone else has got to say.
Gloria Steinem
We need to unlearn our respect for education, since it has undermined our respect for ourselves. It's worth taking time to demistify it. [...] All the things an adolescent can be [...] are reduced to a three digit number. [...] We too can decide how to value our education instead of letting them value us.
Hugo Hamilton
Maybe your country is only a place you make up in your own mind. Something you dream about and sing about. Maybe it's not a place on the map at all, but just a story full of people you meet and places you visit, full of books and films you've been to. I'm not afraid of being homesick and having no language to live in. I don't have to be like anyone else. I'm walking on the wall and nobody can stop me.

As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.

Self-trust firms up your inner territory and grounds you with solid premises for believing in who you are.
Michel de Montaigne
The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.
Nathaniel Branden
A mind that trusts itself is light on its feet.
Norman Vincent Peale
What the mind can conceive and believe, and the heart desire, you can achieve.
Sharon Maas
She might be without country, without nation, but inside her there was still a being that could exist and be free, that could simply say I am without adding a this, or a that, without saying I am Indian, Guyanese, English, or anything else in the world.
T.C. Boyle
In order to create you have to believe in your ability to do so and that often means excluding whole chunks of normal life, and, of course, pumping yourself up as much as possible as a way of keeping on. Sort of cheering for yourself in the great football stadium of life.(Barnes & Noble Review, email dialogue with Cameron Martin, Feb. 09, 2009)
