Quotes from Sebastian Cole

Chance or Destiny?

Posted on January 27, 2014

‘So is it destiny…’ I ask, turning around in the elevator, ‘the way our lives turn out in the end… or is it chance?’

Josh looks directly into my eyes. ‘What do you think?’

‘I’m not sure… but something tells me we just might make our own destiny in life.’

Josh smiles approvingly as the doors begin to shut in front of me.

‘Hey Noah…’

I press a button, and the doors open again.

‘I’ll be here if you need me,’ he states reassuringly.

‘Yeah. Somehow I always knew,’ I say, nodding my head with a subtle smile, feeling as if I’ve known him my whole life. ‘I just never admitted it… until now.’

Perception

Posted on January 27, 2014

“Oh, and one more thing: If I try something that I’ve never done before, something that’s particularly difficult for me, and it doesn’t work out, that doesn’t make it a failure. The fact that I actually succeeded in finishing it makes it a huge success. Think of all the people who never even try…”

– Sebastian Cole, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love


The Gift We Give to Others

Posted on October 07, 2013

“I wasn’t perfect, and I made mistakes; but I learned from them and became a better person for it. I always followed my heart. And most of all, I loved — with every ounce of my being. I guess you could say the greatest love story ever written isn’t confined to the pages of a book. It’s in our lives; and we’re the ones who write it. So that’s what life’s all about, isn’t it? Why we’re here. It has nothing to do with dollars. In fact, it’s totally free. Life’s greatest gift. And the best part is, the best part, this gift we give to others… we get it back. It’s what makes the journey so worthwhile… it’s LOVE.”

“With peaks of joy and valleys of heartache, life is a roller coaster ride that’s both scary and exciting at the same time, the rise and fall of which defines our journey.”

– Sebastian Cole, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love


Peace and Tranquility

Posted on July 04, 2013

“Some people find it up on a roof, gazing at a billion stars on a crystal clear night. Some people find it up a mountain, with beautiful vistas of valleys below. Some people find it on a secluded pond, or a secret hiding spot, or maybe even in a special chair, one with special memories.

But for me, I find it out on the water, sailing on a boat. It’s where I find peace and tranquility. Where everything makes perfect sense, and all my troubles disappear. My soul surrenders to it. To put it simply, it’s where I find my God. Oh, I’m not talking about religion; I’m talking about spirit… something deep inside.

Out on the water, the gentle breeze caressing my face, the warmth of the sun kisses my skin, and my eyes are enchanted by thousands of sparkling diamonds, dancing on the water’s surface. Out on the water, the air is fresh and the sounds of the sea sing out loud. When I want to feel alive… when I want to feel free… I know exactly where to go to find it.” – Sebastian Cole, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love

 


King of the Pond

Posted on June 12, 2013

“As I lay there watching Robin sleep beside me, I realized that she was right all along. I didn’t need to live in a castle — a shack in the woods with her would do just fine. And for that matter, I didn’t need to be prince of the ocean either, because with her by my side… I was king of the pond.”

Sebastian Cole, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love


Find Me

Posted on August 20, 2012

“If someday you should ever think of me and miss me, know in your heart that I’d want you to find me once again. No matter how distant in time or space…
FIND ME.”  Sebastian Cole, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love


The Lesson Learned

Posted on August 20, 2012

Because for me, the sand dollar represents life, and how fragile life really is. What was once so very precious to me, suddenly and without warning, disintegrated and vanished before my eyes. Just like the sand dollar, life holds no promises. Seemingly solid and secure in our grasp, the blessings we have in our lives today are easily shattered tomorrow. The lesson learned: never take your loved ones for granted. And if you’re ever lucky enough to find that one person in life who makes you love more than any other person could possibly make you love, you treat every day together as if it were your last. You cherish every moment.”

 Sebastian Cole, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love


The One Who Got Away

Posted on August 19, 2012

“Perhaps you know someone whose heart clutches onto the bittersweet memory of the one who got away. Someone who secretly bears the weight of this imperceptible burden wherever he or she goes, every day of his or her life. Someone who’d gladly travel back in a time machine to a day when paths diverged, to mend together that which has been torn apart, setting destiny back on its rightful track — if only he or she could. Perhaps you know this someone better than you think. And should this someone happen to be you, may you find strength and support in the millions of others who shoulder this burden with you, and may you be reintroduced one day to true love… in this lifetime and whatever comes after.” — Sebastian Cole


The Three Reasons

Posted on October 2, 2012

‘How about I give you three reasons? Morning, day, and night.’

Her eyes narrowed.

‘Stay… so every morning when I open my eyes, you’ll be the first thing I see. Stay… so every day when I’m with you, I can show you all over again exactly how much you mean to me. And stay… so every night when you lay your head down next to mine, you’ll know… you’ll know just how much you’re loved.’

Her eyes drifted to the water as she thought for a moment, returning to look deep into Noah’s eyes. ‘Okay, Noah… I’ll stay.’

– Sebastian Cole, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love


“I Remember — I Love You”

Posted on August 19, 2012

‘You remember?’ he asked incredulously. ‘What could you possibly remember?’ he demanded, staring at her, waiting for the answer.

The beauty from within her soul shined brightly through her loving eyes as she looked deep into Noah’s now melting eyes.

‘I remember — I love you,’ she said in a soft voice, nervously biting her lip.  Sebastian Cole, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love


All That Really Matters

Posted on August 20, 2012

“I guess what I’m really trying to tell you is… we loved each other’s souls, and as long as we had each other, we were happy. And in the end, that’s all that really matters.”Sebastian Cole, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love


More Than Words

Posted on August 20, 2012

“More than words, her warm eyes speak volumes to my soul, and I know I’m loved.” Sebastian Cole, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love


The Journey

Posted on August 19, 2012

“Now that I’ve started this journey, I can’t see what lies ahead on this unfamiliar road, but I know one thing for sure: when I look behind, I see the things that I’ve accomplished… and I smile with pride.” – Sebastian Cole
