“Life is not somewhere waiting for you, it is happening in you. It is not in the future as a goal to be arrived at, it is herenow, this very moment — in your breathing, circulating in your blood, beating in your heart. Whatsoever you are is your life, and if you start seeking meaning somewhere else, you will miss it. Man has done that for centuries.”
— Osho

“You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world. And you have to do it all the time.”

“I’d rather live failing than spend my days never trying. Failing doesn’t make me a failure. Failing means I am trying. It means I am stepping beyond my fears and striving for something more. Failing just means that next time I have learn from my mistakes and form them into my triumphs.

So I’m going to try, and if and when I fail I’m going to take a deep breath, and then try again.”
— Dele Olanubi

THIS IS WHY DONNA’S STORY IS SO TRAGIC BECAUSE SHE GOES FROM THINKING SHE IS NOTHING, TO REALIZING THAT SHE IS IMPORTANT AND SHE DOES MATTER. SHE SAVES THE UNIVERSE WITH THOSE ‘TEMP SKILLS’ THAT SHE DEEMED UNIMPORTANT AT THE START OF THE SERIES. AND WHEN THE DOCTOR WIPES HER MIND, SHE KNOW HOW MUCH SHE WILL LOSE, HOW SHE WILL GO BACK TO THINKING OF HERSELF AS INSIGNIFICANT AND UNIMPORTANT. I THINK SHE WOULD HAVE RATHER DIED THAN LET THAT HAPPEN, BUT THE DOCTOR TAKES THE CHOICE AWAY FROM HER BECAUSE HE SAVES PEOPLE THAT’S WHAT HE DOES. AND I THINK THAT BREAKS HIS HEARTS.
