You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
Albert Camus

Buddha

A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.
George A. Moore

Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life's search for love and wisdom.
Rumi

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Maya Angelou

I think most artists create out of despair. The very nature of creation is not a performing glory on the outside, it's a painful, difficult search within.
Louise Berliawsky Nevelson
