Maybe the mistake we make is thinking that our parents will change, and maybe they did a better job than we give them credit for. Maybe amid all the crap they dumped on us, there are some things worth keeping, like passion for something you never knew you had, or the ability to constantly surround yourself with people who love you.
Something still exists as long as someone is around to remember it.
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered, forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of being selfish and having ulterior motives, be kind anyway. If you are successful, you’ll win some false friends and true enemies, succeed anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you, be honest anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight, build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous, be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow, do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough, give the world the best you’ve got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it’s between only you. It was never between you and them anyway.
Make good memories today, so that you can have a good past.
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. It remembers little things, long after you’ve forgotten everything.
When you get older, you find it harder to act your age and grow up. It’s because you don’t want to leave your childhood behind. You want to stay a kid as long as you can. So you act younger than you really are and wish time would stop. But you eventually realize that growing up is just another step in life and you don’t have to throw away your childhood for it. You just start to move on with your life and keep the great memories along the way.
Imagine settling for a life you can have because you don’t have the courage to go after the life you really want. You have to make a decision, the kind that bends your future in a whole new direction.
When I say no regrets, I mean there’s no reason to look back wishing you could change things. I do look back with sadness sometimes, but just as often remember the happy times I’ve had. And I always look to the future with hope. If you have no regrets, you stop wishing you could rearrange your past, and you start looking forward to whatever is up ahead.
No one knows how far a girl will go for something she really wants.
After all, computers crash, people die, and relationships fall apart. The best we can do is breathe and reboot.
Because sometimes there’s no easy way out. You just have to grin and bear it. Sometimes the only escape route is to go straight through the flames, just brace yourself and bite your lip. Sometimes you have to cut the ties clean off because in every relationship, there comes a point when the damage is too much and no matter how good it once was, the memories can’t sustain you. You have to save yourself knowing all the while it’ll hurt like hell because you can’t keep giving someone everything if you get nothing in return.
You’re only young once, so be bad, break the rules, get caught, & make it count.
People are in your life for a reason and I don’t think you ever stop caring about the people you’ve been close to. – Mandy Moore
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. – Maya Angelou
We live the life of an unfinished novel still waiting to be written. Depending on how long we live, the longer the chapters. Depending on how interesting we are, the more we appeal to others. We’re often judged by our covers. Sometimes, some people decide to just quit reading us. We’re just forgotten until someone finds us. Our characters can develop throughout the novel, but our chapters can never be edited.
You have a choice. Live or die. Every breath is a choice. Every minute is a choice. To be or not to be.
I’m going to smile my best and I’m going to laugh like it’s going out of style. I look into his eyes and I pray that he doesn’t see that learning to live again is killing me.
