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.
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
and enough money to buy me gifts.
Always put yourself in others' shoes.
If you feel that it hurts you,
it probably hurts the person, too.
A careless word may kindle strife;
a cruel word may wreck a life;
a timely word may level stress;
a loving word may heal and bless.
The beginning of love is to let those we love be just themselves,
and not twist them with our own image - otherwise,
we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss,
and ends with a tear.
"Love me when I least deserve it,
because that's when I really need it."
"When you hug someone, never be the first to let go."
"Smile all the time, even when you're sad. You never know when someone could be falling in love with your smile."
"A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside."
"The heart has reasons that reason does not understand." --Jacques Benigne Bossuel
"A man falls in love through his eyes, a woman through her ears." --Woodrow Wyatt
"You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back."
"Love is like playing the piano. First you must learn to play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and play from your heart."
"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
Trusting someone doesn't necessarily mean he's trustworthy.
"The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first."
"Life is like a hot bath.
It feels good while you're in it,
but the longer you stay,
the more wrinkled you get."
"At age 20, we worry about what others think of us.
At 40, we don't care what they think of us.
At 60, we discover
they haven't been thinking of us at all."
