„How can you become old in spirit? Only by carrying the past, isn't it? If you carry sixty years of burden with you, you're sixty years old. If you don't carry anything, you're like a newborn.

You are this many years old or that many years old simply because you carry that many years of garbage with you.“
— Sadhguru, Mystic's Musings

„He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced--or seemed to face--the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.“
— F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

— Ted Bundy American serial killer 1946 - 1989
