“The path isn’t a straight line; it’s a spiral. You continually come back to things you thought you understood and see deeper truths.”— Barry H. Gillespie (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.” — The Staying Philosophy (Everyday Isa)
“Shake the salt off and throw the meat to the dog.”— (Hebrew) As salt preserves meat, so the soul preserves the body. When death comes and the soul takes its flight nothing remains but a worthless body. Curiosities in Proverbs by Dwight Edwards Marvin, 1916. (via ingridrichter)
