The beginning of love, is to let those we love be perfectly themselves and not twist them with our own image — otherwise, we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them? The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of every-thing…they just make the most out of everything that comes their way.
The best kind of friend is the one you can sit on a porch with, never saying a word and then walk away, feeling like that was the best conversation you’ve had.
Don’t go for looks — it can deceive.
Don’t go for money — even wealth fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile, because only a smile makes a dark day seem bright. 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 the people who have touched their lives.
Love is when you take away the feeling, the passion and the romance… and you find out you still care for that person. Love comes to those who still hope even though they’ve been disappointed, those who still believe, even though they have been betrayed and those who still love even though they’ve been hurt before. Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people, before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the right person, we should know how to be grateful for that gift. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return. But, what is the most painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let the person know how you feel. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past … you can’t go on in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.
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 hearts. But, if it doesn’t, be content it grew in yours. There are things that you would love to hear, but you never hear it from the person you want to. Don’t be deaf to hear it from the person who says it with their heart.
When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you are smiling and everyone around you is crying.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens. But often we look so long at the closed door, that we don’t see the one which has just been opened for us.
Always put yourself in the other’s shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too. A sad thing about life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you … only to find out in the end, that it was never meant to be and you just have to let go.
It takes a minute to have a crush on someone … an hour to like someone…a day to love someone…but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
Love starts with a smile, develops with a kiss and ends with a tear.
