“She liked the word ineffable because it meant a feeling so big or vast that it could not be expressed in words.

~ Lauren Oliver



“You may control a mad elephant; You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger; Ride the lion and play with the cobra;…

You may wander through the universe incognito; Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful;…But control of the mind is better and more difficult.”

~ Paramahansa Yogananda

~ Paulo Coelho
