"If you start out by promising what you don't even have yet you'll lose your desire to work toward getting it" pg 77
This quote relates to life because if you apply this to something you want you won't try as hard to that goal that you really want. If you really want something you shouldn't be promising yourself that. You should work you hardest to your goal because nothing in life is ever handed to you, you gotta work your hardest for everything you want. This is some of the reasons why I chose this quote because it almost represents everyone's life, when you have a dream to do something you have to get out and go do it.
"Never stop dreaming the king said follow the omens" pg 83

I think that this quote really relates to many people because everyone needs to never stop dreaming. If you stop dreaming you won't reach the high potential that we can all reach. There is always gonna be people that are known for quitting on their dream. I believe that everyone in life has a dream and that everyone can reach that dream if they keep pursuing it. Once you reach that dream you will never regret not giving up.

" When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too." pg 56

This is a very great quote because when we truly love something we will put alot into this thing that we love. I feel like everyone should apply this feeling to everything we do. if we do this everyone can probably achieve something they want instead of having other feelings towards it and being afraid to do it. When people really do love something and strive to go and get after it I truly believe that people will achieve this goal or thing that they love.

"Because that's what makes a heart suffer most and hearts don't like to suffer" Pg 112

In this quote it is basically saying that if you don't follow your heart you won't be able to reach your dreams. I also agree that there will be a lot of regret in life if you don't listen to your heart and go do something that your heart is not going to like. If you have to keep pushing for something that the heart wants you should because in the end the feeling of victory is way better then just suffering not trying to achieve. Do you really want to feel the pain in your heart for not trying on something that you know you love most.

"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself "pg 134

I think this quote personally relates to me a lot because I know that if i stop doing something I love because the fear of failing I will be suffering. This really relates to most kids in sports because a lot of these kids have the fear of failing in a sport that they love. No one should ever let this fear from failing really hold you back from something that your personally love with all your heart. The fear of failing is something that should never come in your head because there is a million other people failing but they put in the effort.

"We are afraid of losing what we have, whether it's our life or our possessions and property. But this fear evaporates when we understand that our life stories and the history of the world were written by the same hand." (79)

This is a great quote for many reasons. Some of the reasons is the fact that people won't put their life on the line for something that you really love until they find out what will happen when they do. In life people really don't put everything on the line for something they really do not love. what really is the point to living if you're not gonna do something you love because you are afraid of what can happen to your belongings instead of worrying about something you really do love.
