I no longer pursue happiness, for it alludes me in every occasion. It is as if I’m trying to find something that is invisible, and sometimes I can’t help to wonder if I’m the only one who it is oblivious to.
~ Dave Guerrero
I can’t think of anything when I’m depressed. I just want to be alone.
~ James Smith
Depression is not sobbing and crying and giving vent, it is plain and simple reduction of feeling. People who keep stiff upper lips find that it’s damn hard to smile.
~ Judith Guest
Depression is nourished by a lifetime of ungrieved and unforgiven hurts.
~ Penelope Sweet
When childhood dies, its corpses are called adults and they enter society, one of the politer names of hell. That is why we dread children, even if we love them, they show us the state of our decay.
~ Brian W. Aldiss
For all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these, “It might have been.”
~ John Greenleaf Whittier
Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
~ George Bernard Shaw
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
~ Dr. Seuss
For a long time it seemed to me that real life was about to begin, but there was always some obstacle in the way. Something had to be got 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.
~ Bette Howland
The pleasures of the world are deceitful; they promise more than they give. They trouble us in seeking them, they do not satisfy us when possessing them and they make us despair in losing them.
~ Madame de Lambert
When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life you have a thousand reasons to smile.
Strong lives are motivated by dynamic purposes.
~ Kenneth Hildebrand
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.
~ John Lennon
In youth we learn, in age we understand.
~ Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.
Dream your dreams with your eyes closed, but live your dreams with your eyes open.
~ Eric Collier
I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living life, a man who had good friends, fine family – and I don’t think I could ask for anything more than that, actually.
~ Frank Sinatra
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
~ Maya Angelou
Love consists of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyse and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.
~ Bob Marley
You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
~ Dr. Seuss
