Life, in general

Well its funny how it`s the little things in life that mean the most
Not where you live or the car you drive or the price tag on your clothes
There`s no dollar sign on a piece of mind this I`ve come to know
So if you agree have a drink with me
Raise you glasses for a toast
To a little bit of chicken fried
Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
Well I`ve seen the sunrise
See the love in my woman`s eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother`s love
Zac Brown Band

I believe in pink; I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
Audrey Hepburn

I make mistakes. That’s what I do. I speak without thinking, I act without knowing. I drink so much that I can barely walk… I’m a fantastic lover though, and an amazing friend. God knows I mean well.
Sex &The City

Go for long walks, indulge in hot baths,
Question your assumptions,
Be kind to yourself, live for the moment,
Loosen up, scream, curse the world,
Count your blessings, just let go,
Just be.
Carol Shields

Wash your face twice a day. Don’t wear makeup all the time. Start wearing anti-wrinkle cream in your 20′s. Wear a facial cream that has at least a SPF of 15. Drink lots of water. And someone once told me to be in love. Women in love radiate and they always look stunning.
JK

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.
Arthur Rubinstein

Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come. The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.
Audrey Hepburn

The joy of the Lord is my strength, and thankfully,
that joy is not determined by circumstances.

A. A. Milne

We just have to live our lives to the fullest while we still have lives to live.
the heat seekers

There’s no point to any of this. It’s all just a…a random lottery of meaningless tragedy and a series of near escapes. So I take pleasure in the details. You know…a quarter-pounder with cheese, those are good, the sky about ten minutes before it starts to rain, the moment where your laughter becomes a cackle.
Reality Bites

Life is full of beauty. Notice it.
Notice the bumble bee, the small child,
and the smiling faces.
Smell the rain, and feel the wind.
Live your life to the fullest potential,
and Fight for your dreams.

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.

This is your life and it’s ending, one minute at a time.
Fight Club

As we drive along this road called life, occasionally a gal will find herself a little lost. And when that happens, I guess she has to let go of the coulda-shoulda-woulda, buckle up, and just keep going.
Sex &The City

Just remember, the same as a spectacular Vogue magazine, remember that no matter how close you follow the jumps: Continued on page whatever. No matter how careful you are, there’s going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn’t experience it all. There’s that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should’ve been paying attention. Well, get used to that feeling. That’s how your whole life will feel some day. This is all practice. None of this matters. We’re just warming up.
Chuck Palahniuk

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

finish each day and be done with it. you have done what you could. some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. tomorrow is a new day. you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

to laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch… to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. this is to have succeeded!
Ralph Waldo Emerson

we have keys to all doors! the world is all gates, all opportunities, all strings of tension waiting to be struck!
Ralph Waldo Emerson

what lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.

if you’re going to be passionate about something, be passionate about learning. if you’re going to fight something, fight for those in need. if you’re going to question something, question authority. if you’re going to lose something, lose your inhibitions. if you’re going to gain something, gain respect and confidence. and if you’re going to hate something, hate the false idea that you are not capable of your dreams.
Daniel Golston

Plautus

be guided by the stars which you place well on the canopy of your night sky.
Mary Anne Radmacher

some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. delicious ambiguity…
Gilda Radner

i beg you…to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. do not search fo rthe answers, which could not be given you now, because you would not be able to live them. and the point is, to live everything. live the questions now. perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

This is what you shall do: love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, tka eoff your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body…

Tough times never last, but tough people do.
Robert H. Schuller

We sit silently and watch the world around us. This has taken a lifetime to learn. It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence. It is a waste, for silence is pure. Silence is holy. It draws people together because only those who are comfortable with each other can sit without speaking. This is the great paradox.
Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook)

One day this all will change, treat people the same. Stop with the violence, down with the hate. One day we’ll all be free and proud to be under the same sun singing songs of freedom.

Enjoy yourself. That’s what your 20s are for. Your 30s are to learn the lessons; your 40s are to pay for the drinks.
Sex and the City

To be happy, it first takes being comfortable being in your own shoes. The rest can work up from there. The hardest situation to stay happy in, I think, is when you’re trying to find love, and yourself at the same time. It just doesn’t seem to fit well. So I believe that happiness is being able to wake up and just know that this is what you wanted, and not what somebody else wanted.

Mark Twain

In each of us are places where we have never gone. Only by pressing the limits do you ever find them.
Dr. Joyce Brothers

If you are what you wear, you better dress the part you want. A few lucky ladies can do no wrong. Their looks perfection and they’ve got accessories to match. But most girls get tired of the same old look and they’ll do just about anything to get the hot new piece on their arm, and then there are those with no vision of their own, thief’s of fashion who will steal the shirt of your back, and always remember appearances can be deceiving. But whatever you wear always dress to kill.
Gossip Girl

Its often said that no matter the truth people see what they want to see, some people might take a step back and find out they were looking at the same big picture all along, some people might see that their lives have almost caught up to them, some people may see what was there all along, and then there are those other people, the ones who run as far as they can so they don’t have to look at themselves, and as for me, I can see clearly now.
Gossip Girl

The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you.

People often say that ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder,’ and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.

Marilyn Monroe

Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.
John F. Kennedy

I do honestly believe that people enter our lives for a reason. That everyone we meet who forms an impression has something to teach us. Everything that happens to us is an experience and because of that it can never be bad. an experience can only be good because it all serves to shape the person that we are, the person that we become.
Jane Green

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

The future is called “perhaps,” which is the only possible thing to call the future. And the only important thing is not to allow that to scare you.
Tennessee Williams

It’s never too late to be who you might have been.
George Eliot

Lost people are different. They will drive around in the same circle over and over rather than try a new path. Their fear of getting more lost paralyzed them into staying lost in the area that’s just become familiar. It supersedes their ability to chart a new course. They circle and backtrack and stay comfortably lost because it’s less scary than seeing something different than what’s presently in front of them.
Jill Davis

Some people hear their own inner voices with great clearness and they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy, or they become legends.
Legends of the Fall

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.
Maya Angelou

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do no let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration, for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists… it is real… it is possible… it’s yours.
Ayn Rand

Maybe it did take a crisis to get to know yourself; maybe you needed to get whacked hard by life before you understood what you wanted out of it.
Jodi Picoult, Handle With Care

A shutter is clicked, a flash goes off, and you’ve stopped time, if just for the blink of an eye. And if these pictures have anything to say to future generations it’s this: I was here, I existed, I was young, I was happy. and someone cared enough about me in this world to take my picture.

Rafiki!

That was the thing. You just never knew. It was always changing; it was what everything was really all about. It was twenty minutes, or a hundred years, or this instant, or any instant I wished would last and last. But there was only one truth about forever that really mattered, and that was this: it was happening now.

Everything changes eventually. That’s just the way life is. You have no control over it.
Dawson’s Creek

Sometimes the right thing and the hard thing are the same.
The Fray

The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because it’s only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles, wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.
Chuck Palahniuk

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.

Communication. It’s the first thing we really learn in life. Funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words and really start talking, the harder it becomes to know what to say. Or how to ask for what we really need.
Grey’s Anatomy

It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going your way, another falls spectacularly to pieces.
Bridget Jones’ Diary

Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.
Forrest Gump

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t’ be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
Steve Jobs

Nobody ever said that life was gonna be fair. You’re never gonna get nowhere by running scared. If you look down deep inside, you’ll find the faith to make you strong. Oh, carry on.
Tim McGraw

You know how when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales, that fantasy of what you’re life would be, white dress, Prince Charming, who would carry you away to a castle on a hill. You would lie in bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Prince Charming, they were so close you could taste them. But eventually, you grow up. One day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears. Most people turn to the things and people they trust. But the thing is it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely, ‘cause almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope, of faith, that one day they will open their eyes and it will come true.
Grey’s Anatomy

When the truth is ugly, people try to keep it hidden because they know if revealed the damage it will do. So they conceal it within sturdy walls, or they place it behind closed doors, or they obscure it with clever disguises. But truth, no matter how ugly, always emerges. And someone we care about always ends up getting hurt. And someone else will revel in their pain, and that’s the ugliest truth of all.
Desperate Housewives

The American philosopher William James (a closet phobic) wrote an article in 1884 pondering the nature of fear. He used an example of a person encountering a bear. Does he run because he feels afraid, or does he feel afraid after he has already started running? In other words, does a person have time to think something is frightening, or does the reaction precede the thought?

There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which yourself have altered.
Nelson Mandela

Never think about the future, because it comes soon enough.

People are always gonna talk and to tell you the truth, I love it. I love the attention. I do what I do because it puts a smile on my face. And I’m not the only person in the world that matters.
Jenna Jameson

Don’t try to make life a mathematics problem with yourself in the center and everything come out equal. When you are good, bad things can still happen. And if you are bad, you can still be lucky.

Never ignore a gut feeling, but never believe that it’s enough.
Robert Heller

Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be your own, instead of somebody else’s.
Billy Wilder

Lifting a person, now that matters. The whole problem with people is they know what matters, but they don’t choose it. The hardest thing on Earth is choosing what matters.
Sue Monk Kidd

And you know what? When you least expect it, something great might come along. Something better than you ever planned.
Along Came Polly

HOUSE; Are you going to base your whole life on who you’re stuck with in a room?

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

Out of all I learned in life, you always keep your friends close to your heart ‘cause they will help you if you are falling down.
The Ataris

Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That’s what momma says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it’s the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself a new begging. Just give hope a chance to float up.
Hope Floats

At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale is slightly different that your dream. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s “happy every after,” just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in a while people make even take your breath away.
Grey’s Anatomy

1500 years ago, everybody “knew” that the Earth was the center of the universe. 500 years ago, everybody “knew” that the Earth was flat. And 15 minutes ago you ”knew” that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you’ll “know” tomorrow.

Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters.
Margaret Peters

If you are going to doubt something, doubt your limits.
Don Ward

Temptation comes to all of us. Whether we succumb to it or not depends on our ability to recognize its disguise. Sometimes it comes in the form of an old flame, flickering back to life. Or a new friend, who can be so much more. Or a young child who awakens feelings we didn’t know we had. And so we give in to temptation, all the while knowing come morning, we’ll have to suffer the consequences.
Desperate Housewives

The things we want most in life are the ones that hurt others. Sometimes we have to decide if the price of a broken heart is worth our happiness.
Betty Calloway

I’ve become a real believer in not defining every single thing. Seems like every time you think you’ve figured out what something is, it just becomes something else.

Phone Booth

That’s how people go on forever, you know? Because somebody takes them along.
The Stepmom

We are told to remember the idea, not the man. Because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten. But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world. I’ve witnessed firsthand the power of ideas. I’ve seen people kill in the name of them, and die defending them. But you cannot touch an idea, cannot hold it or kiss it. An idea does not bleed, it cannot feel pain, and it does not love.
V for Vendetta

The only way to appreciate something’s value is to distance yourself from it for awhile.

Whoever said “what you don’t know can’t hurt you” was a complete and total moron. Because…for most people I know, not knowing is the worst feeling in the world.

I’m attracted to obstacles I need to overcome.
Madonna

We are all vulnerable. We will all at some point in our lives, fall. We will all fall. We must carry this in our hearts that what we have is special. They can be taken from us. That when it is taken from us we will be tested. We will be tested. We will be tested to our every soul. It is these times, it is this pain that allows us to look inside ourselves.
Friday Night Lights

If you’re feeling a little frightened about what comes next…don’t. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness. Don’t waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes. Because you’ll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up, and find yourself lose, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart…where your hope lives. You’ll find your way again.
Everwood

Most people don’t know who they are, that’s why they lie. They’re afraid someone else will figure it out before they do.
One Tree Hill

You lost yourself in your search to find something else to hide behind. You gotta stand up and you gotta stand still, watch your back ‘cause no one else will.
Lifehouse

Because sometimes you have something you need to say but you can’t because the words won’t come out or you get scared or you feel stupid, so if you could write a song and sing it then you could say what you need to say and it would be beautiful and people would listen and you wouldn’t make a complete idiot out of yourself. But all of us can’t be songwriters so some of us will never be able to say what we’re thinking or what we want other people to know we’re thinking so we’ll never get the chance to make things right ever again.

Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted. One moment. Would you capture it or just let it slip?
Eminem

The years go by. The time, it does fly. Every single second is a moment in time that passes oh so quick and it seems like nothing. But when you’re looking back … well, it amounts to everything.
Joseph Heller

Sometimes in life when you get what you want, you end up missing what you left behind.
Scrubs

I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway, and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.
To Kill A Mockingbird

You know, it’s been said that we just don’t recognize the significant moments in our lives while they’re happening, that we grow complacent with ideas or things or people, and we take them for granted, and it’s usually not until that thing is about to be taken away from you, that you realize how wrong you’ve been, that you realize how much you really need it, how much you love it.
One Tree Hill

Sometimes I lay awake at night and I ask, “Where have I gone wrong?” Then a voice says to me, “This is going to take more than one night.”
Charlie Brown
God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in her shoes
‘Cause then you really might know what it’s like to have to choose
Then you really might know what it’s like.. I’ve seen a rich man beg, I’ve seen a good man sin, I’ve seen a tough man cry, I’ve seen a loser win, And a sad man grin. I heard an honest man lie, I’ve seen the good side of bad and the down side of up, And everything between.
Everlast

It’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in this world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold onto it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life…. You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. but don’t worry…. You will someday.

But then I thought maybe it’s not that I’m more beautiful today. Maybe I was just as beautiful yesterday, only I lacked the self-esteem to recognize it.

There are days when everything seems wrong, when little things hurt you for no good reason, and then there are days like today; when the world just sings to you, from the minute you can open your eyes in the morning to the minute you shut them again at night…

A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others.

Have you ever written your name, or seen it printed somewhere, and thought it looked unfamiliar? Like maybe you spelled it wrong or something? It used to happen to me all the time. But then again, I’m only the strangest person I’ve ever met.
Jill A. Davis

I’ve always avoided fights. I make jokes instead. I tell people what they want to hear in order to avoid a confrontation. I pretend to want thing I don’t want, and I pretend not to want things I do want. no one gets hurt. except me. the lines are so crossed and blurred at the point that I don’t know what I want. I just know I want it to be easy
Jill A. Davis

You’re going to have to learn to let go, or you’ll never be happy with anyone.
The Heat Seekers

It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. And so you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.
Nicholas Sparks

Regret comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are small, like when we do a bad thing for a good reason. Some are bigger like when we let down a friend. Some of us escape the pains of regret by making the right choice. Some of us have little time for regret because we’re looking forward to the future. Sometimes we have to fight to come to terms with the past, and sometimes we bury our regret by promising to change our ways. But our biggest regrets are not for the things we did but for the things we didn’t do, things we didn’t say that could have saved someone we care about. Especially when we can see the dark storm that’s headed their way.
One Tree Hill

And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.
Nicholas Sparks

After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it’s comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart.

Taylor Swift

Michelangelo said the best way to judge the essential elements of a sculpture is to throw it down a hill and the unimportant pieces will break away. Sometimes life is like that. It tosses us down a hill. But when we reach the bottom and only the important things are left, that’s when our vision clears. That’s when we hold on tight to what we know, while hope stirs inside us. It’s all a matter of perspective.
Everwood

In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities
Janos Arany

You have to learn to walk. You have to learn to talk. You have to
wear that totally ridiculous hat your grandma bought you. You have
no say in the matter. And when you get a little older, even though
you get to choose your hats, you don’t get to choose what they put
in those meatballs in the cafeteria, or when to fall in love.
Sometimes things happen and you just have to deal.
How to Deal

Got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen or, who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you…to make each day count.

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
Helen Keller

Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. Touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all moments are sacred moments and life itself is grace.
Frederick Buechner

But if something was really important, fate made sure it somehow came back to you and gave you another chance. Events conspire to bring you back to where you’d been. It was what you did then that made all the difference: it was all about potential.
Sarah Dessen

He said that some people believe everything happens for a reason. And some people, well, don’t. She thought for a second. It’s not that
I believe everything happens for a reason, it’s just that…I just think
that some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It’s the
universe’s way of providing contrast, you know? There have to be a
few holes in the road. It’s how life is.
Sarah Dessen

But if everything was always smooth and perfect, you’d get too used to that, you know? You have to have a little bit of disorganization now and then. Otherwise, you’ll never really enjoy it when things go right.
Sarah Dessen

Life is sometimes in little pictures. You kind of flash back
to those moments, and in all those moments, you think about
the people you were with, the music you were listening to,
and that feeling comes back.
Taylor Hanson

Maybe we accept the dream has become a nightmare. We tell ourselves that reality is better. We convince ourselves it’s better that we never dream at all. But, the strongest of us, the most determined of us, holds on to the dream or we find ourselves faced with a fresh dream we never considered. We wake to find ourselves, against all odds.. Feeling hopeful. And, if we’re lucky, we realize in the face of everything, in the face of life the true dream is being able to dream at all.
Grey’s Anatomy

I used to think when I got older, the world would make so much more sense. But you know what? The older I get, The more confusing it is to me. The more complicated it is to me. You’d think we’d get better at it.

I don’t really believe in regrets. All my experiences, even the ones that didn’t turn out the way I wanted them to, I firmly believe they were all worth it.

Time takes pleasure in kicking our asses. For even the strongest of us it seems to play tricks. Slowing down… hovering until it freezes. Leaving us stuck in a moment – unable to move in one direction or the other.
Grey’s Anatomy

You have four years to be irresponsible here. Relax. Work is for people with jobs. You’ll never remember class time, but you’ll remember time you wasted hanging out with your friends. So stay out late. Go out on a Tuesday with your friends when you have a paper due Wednesday. Spend money you don’t have. Drink ’til sunrise. The work never ends, but high school does.
Tom Petty

The thing about life that I’ve learned is that you’re going to get hurt. You’re going to have emotional nights and cry yourself to sleep for hours. You’re going to suffer some kind of heartbreak, some kind of loss. But you will also have those moments where you heal. Those moments are the best. You feel like you smile for the first time again. You feel like you’re alive again. Life just kind of restarts.

You find out life’s this game of inches, so is football . Because in either game – life or football – the margin for error is so small. I mean, one half a step too late or too early and you don’t quite make it. One half second too slow , too fast and you don’t quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us. They’re in every break of the game, every minute, every second. On this team we fight for that inch. On this team we tear ourselves and everyone else around us to pieces for that inch. We claw with our fingernails for that inch. Because we know when add up all those inches, that’s gonna make the fucking difference between winnin’ and losin’! Between livin’ and dyin’! I’ll tell ya this: In any fight, it’s the guy who’s willin’ to die who’s gonna win that inch. And I know if I’m gonna have any life anymore, it’s because I’m still willin’ to fight and die for that inch. Because that’s what livin’ is!

Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient?
Evan Almighty

I am grateful that somehow we are made, in the most trying of times, to just block out everything and KEEP GOING, even when you have no idea what to do or how it will all work out. There is such a fine, thin edge between life and death, and I’m also grateful that we’re able to forget about that, for the most part, in our day to day lives.
Sarah Dessen

People work too hard to figure out the meaning of their lives: Why ME, why NOW. The truth is, sometimes things happen to you for a reason. Sometimes it’s just about being in the right place at the right time for someone ELSE.
“Second Glance” by Jodi Picoult

Go ahead, let the world ridicule our dreams and say we’re crazy. It’s usually the crazy ones who are crazy enough to change the world, and the rest are either dumbfounded that we managed to do so, or so terrified that we will find a way to make our dreams a reality.
Viki Jaan

It’s not so much that we’re afraid of change or so in love with the old ways, but it’s that place in between that we fear . . . . It’s like being between trapezes. It’s Linus when his blanket is in the dryer. There’s nothing to hold on to

Was I ever crazy? Maybe… or maybe life is…crazy isn’t being broken or swallowing a dark secret. It’s you or me amplified. If you ever told a lie and enjoyed it. If you ever wished you could be a child forever. They were not perfect, but they were my friends and by the 70s most of them were out living lives. Some I’ve seen, some never again, but there isn’t a day my heart doesn’t find them.

Some people believe that without history, our lives amount to nothing. At some point we all have to choose: do we fall back on what we know, or do we step forward to something new? It’s hard not to be haunted by our past. Our history is what shapes us… what guides us. Our history resurfaces time after time after time. So we have to remember sometimes the most important history is the history we’re making today.

That night I started to think about belief. Maybe it’s not even advisable to be an optimist anymore. Maybe pessimism is something we have to apply daily, like moisturizer, otherwise how do you bounce back when reality batters your belief system, and love does not, as promised, conquer all? Is hope a drug we need to go off of, or is it keeping us alive? What’s the harm in believing?
Sex & The City

Each of us may think we know exactly what we need to make us happy, what will be good for us, what will ensure we have our happy ending, but that life rarely works out in the way we expect, and that our happy ending may have all sorts of unexpected twists and turns, be shaped in all sorts of unexpected ways.

And if you did, would that change make your life better? Or would that change ultimately break your heart? Or break the heart of another? Or would you choose an entirely different path? Or would you change just one thing, just one moment? One moment, that you’ve always wanted back.
One Tree Hill

I don’t think about black in terms of gray or revelations in the light of day I don’t think about cold in terms of ice or second chances happenin’ twice
SheDaisy

We’re taught early on to be a good person, to be kind, to follow the rules, to say our prayers and take our vitamins. But what if we do the right thing and then bad things happen? What then? Is it ever wrong to do the right thing?
Men in Trees

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.
Nike

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Romans 3:23

The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it.
C.C. Scott

There are people who, instead of listening to what is being said to them, are already listening to what they are going to say themselves.
Albert Guinon

Think of a car driving through the night. The headlights only go a hundred or two hundred feet forward, and you can make it all the way from California to New York driving through the dark, because all you have to see is the next two hundred feet. And that’s how life tends to unfold before us. If we just trust that the next two hundred feet will unfold after that, and the next two hundred feet will unfold after that, your life will keep unfolding. And it will eventually get you to the destination of whatever it is you truly want, because you want it.
The Secret

Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.
Mary Anne Radmacher

A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.
Vince Lombardi

What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I admit it’s tempting to wish for the perfect boss, the perfect parent, or the perfect outfit. But maybe the best any of us can do is not quit, play the hand we’ve been dealt, and accessorize what we’ve got.
Sex and the City

So just live, make mistakes, and have wonderful times. But never ever second guess who you are, where you have been, and most importantly, where it is that you are going.
Sex and the City

All these places had their moments, with lovers and friends I still can recall…in my life I’ve loved them all.
The Beatles

I laughed, I cried, but mostly I laughed.
Full House

All this to say that I am a complicated package of a woman, full of qualities and characteristics, hobbies and activities, passions and pursuits, that make me who I am today.
Jessy Garrett

Ultimately, we’re all dead men. Sadly, we cannot choose how but, what we can decide is how we meet that end, in order that we are remembered, as men.
Gladiator

This year, or this month, or, more likely, this very day, we have failed to practice ourselves the kind of behavior we expect from other people.
C. S. Lewis

Essentially, my resolution this year is to bathe myself in experiences and fascinations, instead of drowning myself in judgment and worry and I encourage you to do the same.
Jessy Garrett

When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with creatures of emotion, creatures bustling with prejudices and motivated by pride and vanity.
Dale Carnegie

It’s surprising how much of memory is built around things unnoticed at the time.
Barbara Kingsolver

And by the way, everything in life is writeable about if you have the outgoing guts to to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self doubt.
Sylvia Plath

The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible.
Richard M. DeVos
There is only one thing more painful than learning from experience, and that is not learning from experience.
Archibald Macleis

To live in this world, you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go
Mary Oliver

You don’t have to be a “person of influence” to be influential. In fact, the most influential people in my life are probably not even aware of the things they’ve taught me.
Scott Adams

Don’t use words too big for the subject. Don’t say ‘infinitely’ when you mean ‘very’; otherwise you’ll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite.
CS Lewis

You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything. . . affects everything.
Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why

Look, there is no button to push to get you through this. You just gotta jump in and be scared and stick with it until it gets fun.
Gilmore Girls

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
Agatha Christie

I guess, if anything, it’s about taking chances, even when you think you’re all out of chances. It’s about giving forgiveness and unconditional love, even when it seems like you should only do the opposite. It’s about trusting that God puts people in your life at certain times so that you can capitalize on the opportunity. It’s all about the possibility. It’s all about what you do with those possibilities. Life is short, but it moves so fast. Hang on and enjoy the ride. And when someone comes along with whom you enjoy spending the ride with … hold on tight.
Samantha Mott

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Thoreau

Rise up, now make your impact… Now get your bags packed. Think about your life but girl don’t you cry. Look on the bright side of life.
Rebelution

The Lord has blessed us all today… It’s just that he has been particularly good to me.
A River Runs Through It

Sometimes it gets a lot of wrong answers to get to the right one.
Dangerous Minds

Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we’re told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we’re so focused on finding our happy ending we don’t learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don’t, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe… it’s you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is… just… moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope
He’s Just Not That Into You

Whenever you made a choice, especially one you’d be resisting, it always affected everything else, some in big way, like a tremor beneath your feet, others in so tiny a shift you hardly noticed a change at all. But it was happening.
Sarah Dessen

Its always so much easier to believe what you need than what you know
Georgia Rule

Life’s greatest comforts is being able to look over your shoulder and see people worse off, waiting in line behind you.
Chuck Palahniuk, Rant

To me, the glass is half-empty some days and half-full on others. Sometimes it’s bone-dry. Or overflowing.
Mary Alice Monroe

Some things, however, are true no matter how hard you might try to block them out, and a lie is always a lie, no matter how prettily told. Some doors, once they’re opened, can never be closed again, just as some trust, once it’s been lost, can never be won back
Alice Hoffman, Blue Diary

Its a funny thing about life… if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.
W. Somerset Maughemh

When we are struck at without reason, we should strike back again very hard; I am sure we should- so hard as to teach the person who struck us never to do it again.
Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre

The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be.
Marcel Pagnol

There is never a sudden revelation, a complete and tidy explanation for why it happened, or why it ends, or why or who you are. You want one and I want one, but there isn’t one. It comes in bits and pieces, and you stitch them together wherever they fit, and when you are done you hold yourself up, and still there are holes and you are a rag doll, invented, imperfect. And yet you are all that you have, so you must be enough. There is no other way.
Mayra Hornbacher, Wasted

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
Harriet Beecher Stowe

You are, after all, what you think. Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions.
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat Pray Love

We do not do what we want, and yet we are responsible for what we are – that is the fact. Contemplation often makes life miserable. We should act more, think less, and stop watching ourselves live.
Nicolas de Chamfort

You can’t go back to how things were. How you thought they were. All you really have… is now.
Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why

It’s been said that seeing is believing. But the fact is, we all have our blind spots. Sometimes we recognize them ourselves. Sometimes others recognize them for us. Distance has a way of distorting the things we see. But what appears as an obstacle may in fact be an opportunity. The trick is having enough faith to carry through.
Everwood

Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.
Omar Khayyam

Time changes everything. That’s what people say. It’s not true. Doing things changes things. Not doing things leaves them exactly as they were.
House

The thing is, it’s a big deal when you finally get the chance to do the one thing you want to do-need to do-more than anything. It can kind of scare the crap out of you.
Sarah Dessen, Just Listen

Knowledge is a terrible or a marvelous thing, it just depends on your perspective.
Black Book

It’s difficult to ever go back to the same places or people. You turn away, even for a moment, and when you turn back around, everything’s changed.
Gabrielle Zevin, Elsewhere

“Old times” never come back and I suppose it’s just as well. What comes back is a new morning every day in the year, and that’s better.
George E. Woodberry

When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.
Alexander Graham Bell
If you’re going through hell, keep going.
Winston Churchill

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
M. Kathleen Casey

Rock bottom is good solid ground, and a dead end street is just a place to turn around.
Buddy Buie and J.R. Cobb

Doing what’s right is no guarantee against misfortune.
William McFee
Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory.
Susan B. Anthony

Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.
Dr. Seuss

There’s a bit of magic in everything, and some loss to even things out.
Lou Reed

Well, most learn to walk life’s road by themselves. But a sad few of us simply stop trying.
Desperate Housewives

To fear is one thing. To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another.
Katherine Paterson

The headlights only go a hundred or two hundred feet forward, and you can make it all the way from California to New York driving through the dark, because all you have to see is the next two hundred feet. And that’s how life tends to unfold before us. If we just trust that the next two hundred feet will unfold after that, and the next two hundred feet will unfold after that, your life will keep unfolding.

The Secret

All things splendid have been achieved by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.
Bruce Barton

There is nothing to be done. Just make sure nothing is wasted. Take notes. Remember it all, every insult, every tear. Tattoo it on the inside of your mind.
Janet Finch

There are some things in this world you rely on, like a sure bet. And when they let you down, shifting from where you’ve carefully placed them, it shakes your faith, right where you stand.
Sarah Dessen, Someone Like You

You measure yourself by the people who measure themselves by you.
The Bucket List

The most successful people are those who are good at plan B.
James Yorke

One day, someone showed me a glass of water that was half full. And he said, “Is it half full or half empty?” So I drank the water. No more problem.
Alexander Jodorowsky

This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes. It’s a universal truth. But the good part is, you get to decide how you’re gonna mess it up.
Marilyn Monroe

College is a bubble. You Enter it for four years and forget there is a real world outside of your paper deadlines and midterm exams and beerpong championships. You don’t read the newspaper – you read textbooks. You don’t watch the news – you watch Letterment. But even so, bits and snatches of the universe manage to leak in.
Jodi Picoult

Have the courage to fail big and stick around. Make them wonder why you’re still smiling.
Elizabethtown

When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability. To be alive is to be vulnerable.
Madeleine L’Engle

That’s the way things come clear. All of a sudden. And then you realize how obvious they’ve been all along.
Madeline L’Engle

If you can’t laugh at yourself, life’s gonna seem a whole lot longer than you’d like. What do ya do? You laugh, you know, I’m not saying I don’t cry… but in between… I laugh.
Garden State

The ties that binds us are sometimes impossible to explain. They connect us even after it seems like the ties should be broken. Some bonds defy distance and time and logic; Because some ties are simply… meant to be.
Grey’s Anatomy

I think every day is made up of tiny little tests. Some are tests of character. Some are tests of fortitude. Others are tests of friendship. And if you’re lucky, when it really matters, you’ll pass with flying colors.
Scrubs

It is no surprise to me that hardly anyone tells the truth about how they feel. The smart ones keep themselves to themselves for good reason. Why would you want to tell anyone anything that’s dear to you? Even when you like them and want nothing more than to be closer than close to them? It’s so painful to be next to someone you feel strongly about and know you can’t say the things you want to.
Henry Rollins

What I am actually saying is that we need to be willing to let our intuition guide us, and then be willing to follow that guidance directly and fearlessly.
Shakti Gawain

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.
Abraham Lincoln

Do not weep; do not wax indignant. Understand.

All I can say about life is, Oh God, enjoy it!
Bob Newhart

Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
Eddie Cantor

To be stupid, selfish, and have good health are three requirements for happiness, though if stupidity is lacking, all is lost.
Gustave Flaubert

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
Helen Keller

Laughing is the sensation of feeling good all over and showing it principally in one spot.
Josh Billings

Remember that it is nothing to do your duty, that is demanded of you and is no more meritorious than to wash your hands when they are dirty; the only thing that counts is the love of duty; when love and duty are one, then grace is in you and you will enjoy a happiness which passes all understanding.
W. Somerset Maugham

Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
Oprah Winfrey

Not to be absolutely certain is, I think, one of the essential things in rationality.
Bertrand Russell

I believe that uncertainty is really my spirit’s way of whispering, “I’m in flux. I can’t decide for you. Something is off-balance here.”
Oprah Winfrey

Experiences impact and shape our views – you’re fortunate to have more diverse exposure than your classmates.
Chuck Waldroup

This could be the very minute I’m aware I’m alive.

Homesickness is just a state of mind for me. I’m always missing someone or someplace or something, I’m always trying to get back to some imaginary somewhere. My life has been one long longing.
Elizabeth Wurtzel

Most people don’t know who they are, that’s why they lie. They’re afraid someone else will figure it out before they do.
One Tree Hill

I wish to sing as if no one’s listening. I wish to dance as if no one is watching and I give thanks for my dreams. You can rob me of my sight and you can poison my blood stream, but as long as I can dream then life is worth living. Nothing lasts forever.
Brett Dennen

Someday they will be swept away and swallowed by the sea. We all shall be blessedly released. Life is so precious. It’s as fragile as a dream, and in a moment we all grow our wings.
Brett Dennen

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
Leonardo da Vinci

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.
Albert Einstein

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
John Muir

The search for truth is in one way hard and in another way easy, for it is evident that no one can master it fully or miss it wholly. But each adds a little to our knowledge of nature, and from all the facts assembled there arises a certain grandeur
Aristotle

Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today.
James Dean
There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.
Douglas H. Everett

The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart
Helen Keller

The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.
Morrie Schwartz

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty. If your cup is full may it be again. Let it be known there is a fountain that was not made by the hands of men

Now some say it’s too country. Some say it’s too rock and roll. But it’s just good music if you can feel it in your soul. It doesn’t really matter, it’s always been the same…life goes on, things change.
Tim McGraw

It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.
Chuck Palahniuk

I mean, if life’s so hard already, why do we bring more trouble down on ourselves? What’s up with the need to hit the self-destruct button?
Grey’s Anatomy

No matter how hard we try to ignore it or try to deny it eventually the lies fall away, whether we like it or not. But heres the truth about the truth– it hurts. So, we lie.

There may not be a such thing as a perfect guy, or a perfect family, or a perfect friend…but there is a such thing as a perfect moment.
Melissa Joan Har

The further backward you can look, the further forward you can see.
Winston Churchill

Sure, it sucked to be lost, but I’d long ago realized I preferred it to depending on anyone else to get me where I needed to go. That was the thing about being alone, in theory or in principle. Whatever happened- good, bad, or anywhere in between… it was always, if nothing else, all your own.
Sarah Dessen

In some ways we grow up. We have families, we get married, divorced, but for the most part, we still have the same problems that we did when we were fifteen. No matter how much we grow taller, grow older, we are still forever stumbling, forever wondering, forever young.
Grey’s Anatomy

It doesn’t matter how long we may have been stuck in a sense of our limitations. If we go into a darkened room and turn on the light, it doesn’t matter if the room has been dark for a day, a week, or ten thousand years – we turn on the light and it is illuminated. Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on.
Sharon Salzberg

The understanding eye sees the maker’s fingerprints. They are evident in every detail… Leave Fingerprints.
James Krenov

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it’s time to pause and reflect.
Mark Twain

People 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 some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will forget tomorrow, Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you’ve got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God, It never was between you and them anyway…
Mother Teresa

How do you know how much is too much? Too much too soon, too much information, too much fun, too much love, too much to ask? and when is it all just too much to bear?
Grey’s Anatomy

You take a snapshot of your life the last time you leave someplace, and, I don’t know, it’s dumb, but you think it’s never gonna change.
Party of Five

Sometimes I think that we waste our words. And we waste our moments. And we don’t take the time to say the things that are in our hearts when we have the chance.
One Tree Hill

Don’t gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold.
Bob Marley

You just can’t live in that negative way… Make way for the positive day.
Bob Marley

Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I’m not perfect and I don’t live to be but before you start pointing fingers make sure your hands are clean.
Bob Marley

Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!
Bob Marley

None but ourselves can free our minds.
Bob Marley

Maybe who we are isn’t so much about what we do, but rather what we’re capable of when we least expect it.
Jodi Picoult

There’s always going to be bad stuff out there. But here’s the amazing thing — light trumps darkness, every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can’t stick the dark into the light.
Jodi Picoult

In nineteen minutes, you can mow the front lawn; color your hair; watch a third of a hockey game. In nineteen minutes, you can bake scones or get a tooth filled by a dentist; you can fold laundry for a family of five. In nineteen minutes, you can stop the world; or you can just jump off it.
Jodi Picoult

If you spent your life concentrating on what everyone else thought of you, would you forget who you really were? What if the face you showed the world turned out to be a mask… with nothing beneath it?
Jodi Picoult

Something still exists as long as there’s someone around to remember it.
Jodi Picoult

In the space between yes and no, there’s a lifetime. It’s the difference between the path you walk and the one you leave behind; it’s the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are; its the legroom for the lies you’ll tell yourself in the future.
Jodi Picoult

When we’re awake, we see what we need to see. When we’re asleep, we see what is really there.
Jodi Picoult

Whether or not you believe in Fate comes down to one thing: who do you blame when something goes wrong.
Jodi Picoult

When you don’t fit in, you become superhuman. You can feel everyone else’s eyes on you, stuck like Velcro. You can hear a whisper about you from a mile away. You can disappear, even when it looks like you’re still standing right there. You can scream, and nobody hears a sound. You become the mutant who fell into the vat of acid, the Joker who can’t remove his mask, the bionic man who’s missing all his limbs and none of his heart. You are the thing that used to be normal, but that was so long ago, you can’t even remember what it was like.
Jodi Picoult

Nobody wants to admit to this, but bad things will keep on happening. Maybe that’s beause it’s all a chain, and a long time ago someone did the first bad thing, and that led someone else to do another bad thing, and so on. You know, like that game where you whisper a sentence into someone’s ear, and that person whispers it to someone else, and it all comes out wrong in the end. But then again, maybe bad things happen because it’s the only way we can keep remembering what good is supposed to look like.
Jodi Picoult

I’ve always sort of wondered: If everyone else’s opinion is what matters, then do you ever really have one of your own?
Jodi Picoult

It doesn’t take a whole long life to realize that what we deserve to have, we rarely get.
Jodi Picoult

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.
Dr Seuss

Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one is listening. Love like you’ve never been hurt and live like it’s heaven on Earth.
Mark Twain

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened
Dr Seuss

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.
Albert Einstein

Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
Gandhi

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
Maya Angelou

A room without books is like a body without a soul.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.
Marilyn Monroe

Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Albert Einstein

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough
Mae West

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
Gandhi

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.
Robert Frost

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square hole. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
Apple Computer Inc.

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.
Malcolm X

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
Mark Twain

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
Oscar Wilde

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King Jr.

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
Albert Einstein

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
Oscar Wilde

The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.
J. R. R. Tolkien

There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.
Nicholas Sparks

Wherever you will go I will let you down, But this lullaby goes on.
Sarah Dessen

It is a defect of God’s humor that he directs our hearts everywhere but to those who have a right to them.
Tom Stopparde

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Mother Teresa

I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life?’ rather he will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did?’
Mother Teresa

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
Mother Teresa

Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.
Ida Scott Taylor

Have you ever wondered what marks our time here? If one life can really make an impact on the world…or if the choices we make matter? I believe they do. And I believe that one man can change many lives. For better… or for worse.
One Tree Hill

Every once in a while people step up, they rise above themselves. Sometimes they surprise you, and sometimes they fall short. Life is funny sometimes, it can push pretty hard, but if you look close enough you find hope in the words of children, in the bars of a song and in the eyes of someone you love. And if you’re lucky, and if you’re the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love decides to love you back.
One Tree Hill

Most of our lives are a series of images, they pass us by like towns on a highway. But sometimes a moment stuns us as it happens and we know that this instant is more than a fleeting image. We know that this moment, every part of it, will live on forever.
One Tree Hill

Sometimes I wonder if anything’s absolute anymore. Is There Still right and wrong? Good and bad? Truth and lies? Or is everything negotiable, left to interpretation, grey. Sometimes we’re forced to bend the truth, transform it, cause we’re faced with things that are not of our own making. And sometimes things simply catch up to us.
One Tree Hill

Truth is still absolute. Believe that. Even when that truth is hard and cold, and more painful than you’ve ever imagined. And even when truth is more cruel than any lie.
One Tree Hill

There comes a time when every life goes off course. In this desperate moment you must choose your direction. Will you fight to stay on the path while others tell you who you are? Or will you label yourself? Will you be honored by your choice? Or will you embrace your new path? Each morning you choose to move forward or to simply give up.
One Tree Hill

Make a wish and place it in your heart. Anything you want… everything you want. Do you have it? Good. Now believe it can come true. You never know where the next miracle is going to come from: the next smile, the next wish come true. But if you believe that it’s right around the corner, and open your heart and mind to the possibility of it, you might get what you’re wishing for. The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it. So make your wish. Do you have it? Now believe in it with all your heart.
One Tree Hill

I open my eyes, each morning I rise to find the truth I know that is there. I’m lucky to breathe, I’m lucky to feel, I’m glad to wake up, I’m glad to be here. With all of this world, and all of it’s pain, all of it’s lies, and all of its let downs… I still feel a sense of freedom. So glad I’m around.

And I know this world is so cold and decievin’
But I keep my head up like my nose is bleedin’

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Maryanne Williamson

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.
Mother Teresa

God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world
C. S. Lewis

Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it because you can’t know. You can’t ever really know the meaning of your life. And you don’t need to. Just know that your life has a meaning… Every life has a meaning, whether it lasts one hundred years or one hundred seconds. Every life… And every death… changes the world in its own way. Ghandi knew this. He knew his life would mean something to someone, somewhere, somehow. And he knew with as much certainty that he could never know that meaning. He understood that enjoying life should be of much greater concern then understanding it. And so do I. You can’t know. So don’t take it for granted, but don’t take it too seriously. Don’t postpone what you want. Don’t leave anything misunderstood. Make sure the people you care about know. Make sure they know how you really feel, because just like that… it could end.
Remember Me

When we’re incomplete, we’re always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we’re still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on—series polygamy—until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.
Tom Robbins

Think of all the beauty that’s still left in and around you and be happy!
Anne Frank

So let’s just stay in the moment, smoke some weed, drink some wine, reminisce, talk some shit, forever young is in your mind. Leave a mark they can’t erase. Neither space nor time. So when the director yells “cut,” I’ll be fine. I’m forever young.
Kanye West

I just wanna scream and lose control. Throw my hands up and let it go. Forget about everything and run away. I just want to fall and lose myself, laughing so hard it hurts like hell. Forget about everything and run away
