1. Alain de Botton in "Why You Will Marry the Wrong Person"
The person who is best suited to us is not the person who shares our every taste (he or she doesn’t exist), but the person who can negotiate differences in taste intelligently — the person who is good at disagreement. Rather than some notional idea of perfect complementarity, it is the capacity to tolerate differences with generosity that is the true marker of the “not overly wrong” person. Compatibility is an achievement of love; it must not be its precondition.
2. "Forgiveness means letting go of the hope for a better past." - @LamaSuryaDas
 3. “The perfect man employs his mind as a mirror. It grasps nothing; it refuses nothing. It receives, but does not keep.” -Laozi
4. "I can see that you have a complex problem: it has a real and an imaginary part." -- John Tukey
5. Opportunities multiply as they are seized. (Sun Tzu, The Art of War)
