“One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.” – Sigmund Freud
Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.
“Your daily life is your temple and your religion. When you enter into it take with you your all.” – Khalil Gibran
“Gifts are for the delight of the recipient, not the giver.” – Styxx

We just have to accept the fact that some people are going to stay in our hearts, even if they don’t stay in our lives.
“The main thing is just to try to be nice. You already are – so lovely I burst, darling – and so I want you to hang on to that and never let it go. Keep slowly turning it up, like a dimmer switch, whenever you can. Just resolve to shine, constantly and steadily, like a warm lamp in the corner, and people will want to move towards you in order to feel happy, and to read things more clearly. You will be bright and constant in a world of dark and flux, and this will save you the anxiety of other, ultimately less satisfying things like ‘being cool’, ‘being more successful than everyone else’ and ‘being very thin’.” – Caitlin Moran
“What happens when you make a wrong turn? Does [the GPS] turn off? No. It simply says ‘recalculating’ and it gets you back on your path. There is no reason you can’t recalculate and get back on the road to greatness.” – Anthony Weiner
“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 most frightens us.” – Marianne Williams
“Happy is the moment we sit together, with two forms, with two faces, yet one soul. You and I.” – Rumi
There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.
And there are those who give with pain, and that pain is their baptism.
And there are those who give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy, nor give with mindfulness of virtue;
They give as in yonder valley the myrtle breathes its fragrance into space.
For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don’t enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are that you’re not going to be very happy. If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn’t going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness. – sweetestsin-ox.xanga.com
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny – it is the light that guides your way. – Heraclitus
