A year from now you'll wish you started today

Dogs teach us a lot of things but none more important than to love unconditionally
You don't need someone to complete you. You only need someone to accept you completely

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken
Money may not buy happiness, but it's better to cry in a Lamborghini

When I first saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew
Chocolate is the answer. Who cares what the question is

Text Quotes
Love is moral even without legal marriage, but marriage is immoral without love  (Ellen Key Quotes) Happiness lies so far from man, but he must begin by daring to will it  (Ellen Key Quotes) Is human love the growth of the human will ?  (Ellen Key Quotes) The more horrifying this world becomes, the more art becomes abstract  (Ellen Key Quotes) The destruction of the personality is the great evil of the time  (Ellen Key Quotes) The home was a closed sphere touched only at its edge by the world’s evolution  (Ellen Key Quotes) War can be prevented only by broad-minded statesmanship - a statesmanship that understands how to enlist people’s interests in a leading cause.  (Ellen Key Quotes) In every new generation, the impulses supposed to have been rooted out by discipline in the child break forth again when the struggle for existence - of the individual in society, of the society in the life of the state - begins. These passions are not transformed by the prevalent education of the day, but only repressed.  (Ellen Key Quotes) Only by keeping oneself in constant process of growth, under the constant influence of the best things in one’s own age, does one become a companion halfway good enough for one’s children.  (Ellen Key Quotes) On the question of marriage, as in all other respects, Lutheranism is a compromise, a bridge between two logical views of the universe: the Catholic-Christian and the Individualistic Monist. And bridges are made to go over, not to stand upon.  (Ellen Key Quotes) The condition of all development is not to be content with the present, but to have the courage to ask how everything can be made better and the good fortune to find a right answer to this question in thought or in action.  (Ellen Key Quotes) Whereas nationalism still seeks power, honour, and glory through means that endanger other countries, patriotism knows that a country’s strength and honour can only be permanently safeguarded through concourse with other countries. And whereas nationalism scoffs at the idea of international laws and regulations, patriotism seeks to create such.  (Ellen Key Quotes) Our age gives the more receptive among the young such a sense of social responsibility that one is inclined at times to fear that social interests may encroach upon individual development, that a knowledge of all the ills affecting the community may act as too powerful a damper on the joys of youth.  (Ellen Key Quotes) The work of popular education, the temperance movement, the peace movement, are to a great extent carried on by the young. Their meetings show that the young understand one of their tasks: that of bringing together the different classes through social intercourse.  (Ellen Key Quotes) The ever clearer consciousness that love can dispense with marriage, yet marriage cannot dispense with love, is already partially recognized by modern society, by the facility of divorce.  (Ellen Key Quotes) Children must be impressed with the fact that the greatest heroes are those who fight to help others, not those who fight for power or glory. They must be made to understand that victory does not prove that the thing fought for is right, nor that defeat proves that a cause is wrong.  (Ellen Key Quotes) Christianity is sustained by the knowledge that the object of man’s life on earth is his development as an eternal being. Therefore, none of his expressions of life can be an end in itself, but must serve a higher purpose than the earthly life and happiness of the individual - or even than that of the race.  (Ellen Key Quotes) Unless one believes in a superhuman reason which directs evolution, one is bound to believe in a reason inherent in humanity, a motive power transcending that of each separate people, just as the power of the organism transcends that of the organ. This reason increases in proportion as the unity of mankind becomes established.  (Ellen Key Quotes) A new principle cannot be put into effect without bringing with it new mistakes. But we may, however, be convinced that the laws of life - to which belongs the law that suffering follows the misuse of freedom - will finally be able to bring everything within its right limits.  (Ellen Key Quotes) The storm and stress period of women and the new social and psychological formations thereby entailed must indeed extend far into the twentieth century. This period of conflict will cease only when woman within and out of marriage shall have received legal equality with man.  (Ellen Key Quotes) Love, as life, will fortunately remain an eternal mystery which no science will be able to penetrate and which reason cannot rule. Our only hope for the future is that man, endowed with a more delicate sense, will listen to the secrets of his own life.  (Ellen Key Quotes) The art of living demands that our interest in bringing forth flowers in our family life equal the interest we take in bringing them forth in our window gardens. So long as their home-life aesthetics have not become ethics, women need not expect husbands, children, or servants to feel happy in the homes of their creation.  (Ellen Key Quotes) What would happen if we finally succeeded in following the directions of nature and recognized that the great secret of education lies hidden in the maxim, ‘Do not educate’?  (Ellen Key Quotes) The havoc wrought by war, which one compares with the havoc wrought by nature, is not an unavoidable fate before which man stands helpless. The natural forces that are the cause of war are human passions, which it lies in our power to change. What are culture and civilization if not the taming of blind forces within us as well as in nature?  (Ellen Key Quotes) Like George Sand, the feminism of the present day asserts the right of free thought against the creed of authority in every field; the solidarity of mankind and the cause of peace against the patriotism of militarism; social reform against the existing relations of society.  (Ellen Key Quotes) Great love, like great genius, can never be a duty: both are life’s gracious gifts to its elect.  (Ellen Key Quotes) It is not sufficient for the young to devote their enthusiasm, their courage, their ambition, their self-sacrifice to the great ideas of the time; the young must not only preserve but increase their powers if they are to be really equal to their eternal task: that of drawing the age in advance.  (Ellen Key Quotes) Tenderness has created the first ‘social order’ - that of the mother with her offspring. Through motherliness, woman later makes her great contributions to civilization.  (Ellen Key Quotes) For thousands of years, poetry has been picturing love as a mysterious and tragic power. But when anyone says the same thing in plain prose, and adds that life would be colourless and poor without the great passions, then this is called immorality!  (Ellen Key Quotes) It is not a dream that someday, nations will be able to settle their difficulties without war, just as individuals now settle their personal feuds without resorting to arguments of physical strength or sharp steel. For, then, humanity will have created international jurisdiction and a power to enforce its laws.  (Ellen Key Quotes)
