Aw man, I really like your Jackie Kennedy quote!
Personally, I love the Gestalt prayer, which actually isn’t really a prayer but more of a statement about Gestalt Therapy.
I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I,
and if by chance we find each other, it’s beautiful.
If not, it can’t be helped.
(Fritz Perls, “Gestalt Therapy Verbatim”, 1969)

“Love is love, no matter how far apart.” – My grandma used to always say that. I love it. I also love this quote, “I know it seems hard sometimes but remember one thing, Through every dark night, there comes a bright day.” I have that tattooed on my side.

Confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can have. It’s much sexier than any body part.
We are born fresh, charming, and spontaneous and must be civilized before we are fit to participate in society.

“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
“I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.” van Gogh
“But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”
