Maybe God wants us to meet a
people before meeting
the right one so that when we finally
meet the right person, we will know
how to be grateful
for that gift.
When the door of happiness closes,
another opens, but often times we look
so long at the closed
door that we don't
see the one which has been opened for us.
The best kind of friend is the kind you
on a porch and swing with,
never say a word, and then walk away
feeling like it was the best
It's true that we don't know what we've
got until we lose it, but it's also true
that we don't know
what we've been
missing until it arrives.
Giving someone all your love is never an
assurance that they'll
love you back.
Don't expect love in return; just wait
for it to grow in their heart.
But if it doesn't, be content
it grew in yours.
It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone,
an hour to like someone, and a day to love
but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
Don't go for looks; they can deceive.
Don't go for wealth;
even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile because it
takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.
Find the one that makes your heart smile.
There are moments in life when you miss someone
so much that you
just want to pick them from
your dreams and hug them for real.
Dream what you want to dream; go where you
to go; be what you want to be,
because you have only one life and one
chance to do all the things you want to do.
May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,
enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow
to keep you
human, enough hope to make you happy.
Always put yourself in others' shoes.
If you feel that it hurts you,
probably hurts the other person too.
The happiest of people don't necessarily
have the best of everything;
just make the most of everything that
comes along their way.
The brightest future will always be based
a forgotten past, you can't go on well
in life until you let go of your past
failures and heartaches.
you were born, you were crying and
everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so that when you die,
the one who is smiling and
everyone around you is crying.
~*~ Mother Teresa's Prayer ~*~
are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
...Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse
you of selfish, ulterior motives;
...Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
...Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often
...Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never
between you and them anyway.
