Search for meanings, not validations.
Search for significances, not for imperfect justifications.
Search for dreams, not for vague approvals.
Search for love, not for empty companionship.
Search for the truth, not silly rationalizations.
Search for poetry and beauty, not for shallow forgeries or constructed illusions.
And lastly… always always search for the intangible thing that makes you long, not for what seems to fulfill a temporary role, (however sweet it might appear to be).
