very is lazy

So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. 

—Dead Poets Society

pure mind

"We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves."

fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself

My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer," the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky. "Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams."

-the alchemist by paulo coelho
