"There is no fear in love." - 1 John 4:18

"You never wanna lose anybody, and you never wanna see someone disappear out of your life; but...we wouldn't be here if it were different... I feel bad about the bad things. I feel good about the good things. But I wouldn't change a thing." - Dave Grohl

"There's no point to lessons that don't bring pain with them. People can't gain anything without sacrificing something, after all. But, once you've successfully endured that pain, you get a heart that is stout enough not to be overcome by anything... a heart made fullmetal." - Ed Elric

"I love soccer because it is so painfully similar to life: slow, unjust, fairly random, usually boring, but always holding out the hope that, at some moment, however brief, everything will come together and take on meaning.
There’s no getting away from it—life isn’t about limber athletes sinking hoops from the three-point arc; life is an ongoing, uncoordinated, anguished effort to transcend our trivial existence, an effort that, if we’re lucky, might lead to one brilliant move by Messi, Kaká, or some other dribbling magician. And then, for one split second, that whole damp 90-minute mishmash will turn into something coherent, beautiful, and worthwhile. And, when that moment and its endless playbacks fade, we will all return to our same drab reality of wasted time, pointless fouls, unreceived passes, and wild kicks that miss the goal by kilometers, only to wait with infinite patience and boundless hope for that next moment of grace." - Etgar Keret
