Maybe God wanted us to meet the wrong people before
meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the
right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift. 
Maybe when the door of happiness closes, another opens,
but often times we look so long at the closed door that
we don't see the one which has been opened for us.
Maybe the best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on
a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk
away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.
Maybe it is true that we don't know what we have got until
we lose it, but it is also true that we don't know what we
have been missing until it arrives.
Giving someone all your love is never as assurance that
they will love you back. Don't expect love in return;
just wait for it to grow in their heart, but if it does not,
be content it grew in yours.
It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour
to like someone, and a day to love someone,  but it takes
a lifetime to forget someone.
Don't go for looks; they can deceive.  Don't go for wealth;
even that fades away.  Go for someone who makes you smile
because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem
bright.  Find the one that makes your heart smile.
There are moments in life when you miss someone so
much that you just want to pick them from your dreams
and hug them for real.
Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go;
be what you want be,m because you have only one life
and one chance to do all the things you want to do.
May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,
enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep
you human, and enough hope to make you happy.
Always put yourself in others' shoes.  If you feel that it
hurts you , it probably hurts the other person too.
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of
everything; they just make the most of everything that comes
along their way.
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 people who have touched their lives.
Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a
tear.  The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten
past.  You can't go on well in life until you let go of your past
failures and heartaches.
When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you
was smiling.  Live your life so that when you  die, you are the
one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

  1. Did you write this? I suppose you did because you didn't cite anyone but its really good. These are words I try to live by. I really want to print this and put it on my wall so I can see it when I wake and before I pray to my God. It's honestly my mantra to living life. I think if flows so beautifully too.
