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 can sit on a porch
and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling
like it was the best conversation you've every had.
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 someone, 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 want 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, it probably hurts the other person, too.
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best
of everything; they just make the most of everything
that comes along their way.
Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those
who have searched, and those who have tried, for only
they can appreciate the importance of people who have
touched their lives. Love begins with a smile, grows
with a kiss and ends with a tear.
The brightest future will always be based on a
forgotten past, you can't go on well in life until you
let go of your past failures and heartaches. When you
were born, you were crying and everyone around you
Live your life so that when you die, you're the one
who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.
