The journey is the reward.
Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.
History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.
To perceive is to suffer.
The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keep out the joy.
For all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these, "It might have been."
John Greenleaf Whittier
Life is full of misery, loneliness and suffering - and it's all over much too soon.
Not all those who wander are lost.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Dream your dreams with your eyes closed, but live your dreams with your eyes open.
I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley
Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.
I know I was born and I know that I'll die. The in between is mine.
We accept the love we think we deserve.
Love the life you live, live the life you love.
Have you done enough today to earn the right to live tomorrow?
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
I am not afraid. I was born to do this.
Joan of Arc
Those who hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on to the pain through resentment. Your past is past! Nothing will change it. You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness. For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go.
I'm not always depressed: only when I think and feel.
Depression is nourished by a lifetime of ungrieved and unforgiven hurts.
