Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.
Maybe some people just arn’t meant to stay in our lives forever. Maybe some people are just passing through. It’s like some people just come into our lives to bring us something, a lesson we need to learn and that’s why they’re there. ~ Unknown
Life is all about risks and it requires you to jump. Don’t be a person who has to look back and wonder what they would have, or could have had. No one waits forever. ~ Unknown
I believe that we are who we choose to be. Nobody is going to come and save you, you’ve got to save yourself. Nobody is going to give you anything . . . you’ve got to go out and fight for it. ~ Barry Manilow
The most powerful force in the world? Compound interest. -Albert Einstein
“This is absurd. It’s just a dog.”
“Just a dog? Porthos dreams of being a bear, and you want to shatter those dreams by saying he’s just a dog? What a horrible candle-snuffing word. That’s just like saying, ‘He can’t climb that mountain, he’s just a man‘, or ‘That’s not a diamond, it’s just a rock.’ Just.” ~ Finding Neverland
We wear these clothes and this make-up for other woman more than for men. Men don’t care. They just want us naked. ~ Unknown
The best presents don’t come in boxes. ~ Calvin and Hobbes
After awhile you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul. And you learn that love doesn't mean learning and company doesn't mean security. And you begin to learn the kisses aren't contracts and presents aren't promises. And you begin to accept your defeats with your head and your eyes open with the grace of an adult and not the grief of a child. And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow 's ground is too uncertain for plans. After awhile you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much. So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you will learn that you really can endure that you really are strong... and you really have worth. ~From a Psychology Book
Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. ~ The Shawshank Redemption

All people are discontented when they know just the facts, or just the books, or just the things. Happiness can come only from knowing yourself. ~ Unknown
You’re going to look back on this and realize it was all amazing . . . the good, bad and ugly. In the end, the bads don’t really matter, ‘cause you know you had so much fun. ~ Unknown
"If you don't think conflict is relevant to technological advances, take a look at the Swiss. They've been neutral for virtually their entire history and their major contribution to the world is the cuckoo clock. Look at the Swiss "Army" knife. It's got nail clippers. It's even got a corkscrew in it!" T.C. Luoma
Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo de Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein. ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should dance. ~ Unknown
He who is quietest, often has the most to say. ~ Unknown
No one hates history...They hate their own history.

-The DaVinci Code, the movie
Life and love are life and love, a bunch of violets is a bunch of violets, and to drag in the idea of a point is to ruin everything. Live and let live, love and let love, flower and fade, and follow the natural curve, which flows on, pointless. - D.H Lawrence
