Freedom lies in the quest for it, and ends where people have stopped asking about it.
If you want to experience joy and happiness in life, you must free your mind. Don’t become a prisoner to your thoughts. Don’t allow your perceptions to be the only views you believe. Allow truth to penetrate your core as it sets you free
The identity you’re craving for is an illusion; your true nature has no identity, you’re the universe -you contain all things!
Nezhdanov’s heart began to beat violently and he lowered his eyes involuntarily. This girl, who had fallen in love with a homeless wretch like him, who trusted him, who was ready to follow him, to go with him towards one and the same goal – this wonderful girl – Marianna – at that moment was, for Nezhdanov, the embodiment of everything good and just on earth; the embodiment of that love, that of a family, sister or wife, which he had not experienced; the embodiment of homeland, happiness, struggle and freedom.
But, my dear friend Wildfire,” said Carl Peterson laying his hand on the Indian’s shoulder, “this is not a policy to live by.”

Let no one ever intimidate you, you are standing on no one’s ground. But again, some have claimed the earth as their own and usurped power from the rest of us. But they are usurpers; power belongs to every one of us. Seek it as much as possible. There is no shame in that. In fact it’s a necessity.

So if you care to find me/
Look to the western sky/
As someone told me lately/
Everyone deserves the chance to fly!/
And if I’m flying solo/
At least I’m flying free/
Tell those who’d ground me/
Take a message back from me/
Tell them how I am defying gravity!/
I’m flying high defying gravity/
And soon I’ll match them in renown./
And nobody in all of Oz/
No Wizard that there is or was/
Is ever gonna bring me down!/
