Always try to leave people better than you found them. Hug the hurt. Kiss the broken. Befriend the lost. Love the lonely.

If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather. Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.

Not everyone who is single is lonely; not everyone who is taken is in love.

Love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.

People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.

I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.

Perfectionism is the enemy of creation, as extreme self-solitude is the enemy of well-being.

It is astonishing how little one feels alone when one loves.

If you make friends with yourself you will never be alone.
