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
We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness – and call it love – true love.
~ Robert Fulghum
Love is when he gives you a piece of your soul, that you never knew was missing.
~ Torquato Tasso
A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love.
~ Max Muller
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.
~ Ingrid Bergman
When you’re in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks.
~ Natalie Clifford Barney
It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
~ Albert Einstein
The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keep out the joy.
~ Jim Rohn
I am not afraid. I was born to do this.

Not all those who wander are lost.
