One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We cannot be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.Maya Angelou (via purplebuddhaproject)
The cosmic lemniscate, or sidewise figure-eight, the symbol of infinity, hovered like a halo above the Magician’s head, and about his waist was clasped a serpent devouring its own tail: the worm Ouroborus, a symbol of eternity.

Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else.Gautama Buddha (via celestinevibes)
