George Orwell: “Society is commonly too cheap. We meet at very short intervals, not having had time to acquire any new value for each other. We meet at meals three times a day, and give each other a new taste of that old musty cheese that we are. We have had to agree on a certain set of rules, called etiquette and politeness, to make this frequent meeting tolerable and that we need not come to open war.”

Jane Austen: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. However, society often forgets that individuals are more than their societal roles, and true happiness lies in understanding and embracing the uniqueness of each person.”

Charles Dickens: “Society is a more hollower thing than even I had suspected. It has no principles, no scruples. It follows its lowest instincts without restraint. It is a complete slave to the tyranny of the majority, and the minority suffers in silence.”

Mark Twain: “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”

Albert Camus: “Society has always seemed to demand a little more from human beings than it will get in practice. But, in the end, it is the willingness of individuals to question, rebel, and stand against the absurdities of societal norms that defines the true character of a society.”

Marcus Aurelius

“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”

“The best revenge is to be unlike him who performed the injustice.”

“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.”

“He who fears death either fears the loss of sensation or a different kind of sensation. But if thou shalt have no sensation, neither will thou feel any harm; and if thou shalt acquire another kind of sensation, thou wilt be a different kind of living being and thou wilt not cease to live.”

“It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.”


“In the garden of the heart, let love be the tender blossom that whispers secrets to the wind, spreading fragrance to the soul.”

“Dance, O Beloved, in the rhythm of love’s symphony, where the notes are written in the language of the heart, and the dance is an eternal celebration.”

“In the silence between our breaths, love speaks a language known only to the soul, a poetry written with the ink of passion on the parchment of existence.”

“Lovers, like stars in the vast expanse of the night sky, illuminate the darkness with the radiance of their connection, weaving constellations of eternal togetherness.”

“Love is not a flame that flickers with the winds of change; it is the unyielding sun that bathes the universe in the warmth of its unwavering affection.”
