"When a man tells you that he got rich through hard work, ask him: 'Whose?'" - Don Marquis
I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. ~ Harper Lee
To want nothing is to get everything. (Martin Kojc)
"Never look down on anybody unless you're helping him up."--Jesse Jackson
People are gonna hurt you, people will betray you - some asshole is gonna break your heart one day & someday you will be that asshole; some days you are gonna want to scream at the top of your lungs and kill everyone around you & the next day you might feel like you're on top of the world - friends will come and go but each one will have an impact on your life and teach something every day you're gonna learn something new, some things you might not want to know every mistake is the greatest lesson to learn * you will laugh until your stomach hurts; some people are gonna hate you, others will love you - either way it shouldn't matter but when the day is done all you need to do is sit back and laugh at this thing called Life.
"Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep. Wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you' re just as pretty without make-up on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have YOU.The one who turns to his friends and says, "thats her"."
You don't get harmony when everybody sings the same note. ~Doug Floyd
They say that nobody is perfect. Then they tell you practice makes perfect. I wish they'd make up their minds. ~Wilt Chamberlain
"I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love."~Mother Teresa
"Laughter is the shortest distance between two people." -Victor Borge
"People living deeply have no fear of death." - Anais Nin
"It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend." ~William Blake

"For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin.....But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid.Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life."~ Alfred Souza ~
"Now, now my good man, this is no time for making enemies."- Voltaire (1694-1778) on his deathbed in response to a priest asking that he renounce Satan.
Our lives have eternal significance. And no one—absolutely no one—is expendable.--Martin Bell, The Way of the Wolf
If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause and say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.-Martin Luther King, Jr
"For everything you have missed, you have gained something else." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.~ Theodore Roosevelt
