that we`ll be {[ best friends }]
when we`re old & in nursing
homes;; chasing each other
around in our moble chairs

I ran up the door, closed the stairs,
said my pajamas and put on my prayers.
I turned off the
bed and hopped into the light...
all because you kissed me goodnight

.we're so cool even.
. ice cubes are jealous .

I have had a perfectly wonderful evening.. but this wasn't it.

You know you're in love when you see that someone &

your heart flutters, your stomach gets butterflies,

& the rest of the world [disappears]

why is it easy to fall in love and yet so hard to be loved back?
why should I feel such if destiny permits me not?
why do I have to fall if it's you I cant have?
why is there a "you" in "me" but never a "me" in "you"?

Love doesn't make the world go 'round.
Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.

If i could tell you {one thing} --it would be that
i love hearing your voice &that your
smile just happens to brighten my


& those little things you do,

and you not knowing that you do them
makes me crazy about you

After a while you learn the difference between holding hands and falling in love.
You begin to learn kisses don't always mean something and promises can be
broken as quickly as they are made &&sometimes goodbyes really are
forever. .

don't forget why we fell in love
in the first place.

The difference between the impossible and the possible
lies in a person's [determination].

You can do what you have to do, and sometimes you can do it even better than you think you can.

It takes a little courage, and a little self-control. And some grim determination, If you want to reach the goal. It takes a great deal of striving, and a firm and stern-set chin. No matter what the battle, if you really want to win, there's no easy path to glory. There is no road to fame. Life, however we may view it, Is no simple parlor game; But its prizes call for fighting, For endurance and for grit; For a rugged disposition that will not quit.

Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.

A failure establishes only this, that our determination to succeed was not strong enough.

Fight one more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one more round. When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired that you wish your opponent would crack you one on the jaw and put you to sleep, fight one more round – remembering that the man who always fights one more round is never whipped.

Everyone has his burden. What counts is how you carry it.

Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

I believe life is to be lived, not worked, enjoyed, not agonized, loved, not hated.

If you don't like who you are and where you are, don't worry about it because you're not stuck either with who you are or where you are. you can grow. You can change .You can be more than you are.

Let others lead small lives,but not you.Let others argue over small things,but not you.Let others cry over small hurts,but not you.Let others leave their future in someone elses hands,but not you. not you.

You wake up and he’s on your mind.
Another subject, you can’t find.
You used to think it was just a bluff.
But now you realize, you’re in love.

You see him and can’t help but smile.
Think of him for miles and miles.
Weak in the knees when he comes through.
You know his eyes see right through you.

You don’t care what people say.
You want to be with him all day.
Seeing him you can’t get enough.
And you can see that you’re in love.

A friend is one who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself.

A hug is worth a thousand words. A friend is worth more.

I have a hand, and you have another; put them together and we have each other.

It's the friends you can call up at 4 am that matter.

I never forget a face, but in your case I'll be glad to make an exception.

I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.

I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure.

Spending time is inevitable. You're going to spend your time doing something. It might as well be something you want to do.

To reach a goal you have never before attained, you must do things you have never before done.

Procrastination: Not going after your dreams, but kidding yourself into thinking that someday you will.

The only things we regret in life are the risks we don't take.

First we form habits, then they form us. Conquer your bad habits, or they'll eventually conquer you.

It is better to be respected than it is to be popular. Popularity ends on Yearbook Day, but respect lasts forever.

People who say that life is not worthwhile are really saying that they themselves have no personal goals which are worthwhile...Get yourself a goal worth working for. Better still, get yourself a project....Always have something ahead of you to "look forward to" — to work for and hope for.

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

Live To Learn, Learn To Love, Love To Live!

You can't run away from trouble, there is no place that far.

-Thomas S. Monson

Humble people don't think less of themselves, they just think of themselves less.

He who stands for nothing, falls for anything – Unknown

Vulgar language is only an admonition of a small vocabulary

Doing more things faster is no substitute for doing the right things

You can't be right by doing wrong, you can't be wrong by doing right
- Thomas S. Monson

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else

Strong minds talk about ideas, weak minds talk about people.

Your mind is like an attic, you can fill it with good junk or bad junk.

It is not true that the behavior of those around us excuses our own behavior - Henry B. Eyring

He who lives without principles dies without honor

Character is made by what you stand for; reputation by what you fall for.

The right to do something doesn't mean that doing it is right.

Anything in life worth working for, is worth praying for

If you understand who you are, you understand what your birthright is, and you understand what God wants you to be

If you could envision the type of person God wanted you to be you would rise up and never be the same again

Our gift from God is our life, our gift to God is what we do with our
life - Thomas S. Monson

There are a thousand steps from Hell to Heaven, but only one from Heaven to Hell

it is not so important whether a young man has been through the experience of a mission as it is whether the mission experience has been through him.

"It's amazing. some people, they just say these small little things, one sentence and it changed the way you feel about them in an instant. Small little words that can hurt you so much or make you fall deeply in love forever. It changes everything, nothing between you is ever really the same again, even if they dont know it, it still happens"

if one day u feel like crying.... call me. I dont promise that i will make u laugh, but i can cry with u. If one day u want to run away-- dont be afraid to call me. I dont promise to ask u to stop......but i can run with u. If one day u dont want to listen to anyone.....call me. I promise to be there for u but also promise to remain quiet. But one day if u call......and there is no answer.....come fast to see me. Perhaps i need you.

"I can't explain this feeling, but I guess, for you, I'll try. It's like I've waited for this one thing my whole life, and suddenly its right in front of me. I know you sometimes doubt how I feel for you, and sometimes I doubt how you feel about me. But then there are times stupid times, like when we're posing for a picture... Or I'm sitting in your car... Or when we're walking together and we brush against each other... and I know without question that you're feeling the same way I am. And those moments, however few or far between, make everything we go through worth it. What can I say...? Somewhere in these past months, I've fallen in love"

-*- the best things in life are unseen that's why we close our eyes to cry kiss dream -*-

*When no one is there for you*
*And you think no one cares*
*When the whole world walks out on you*
*And you think you're alone*

*I'll be there*

*When the one you care about the most*
*Could care less about you*
*When the one you gave your heart to*
*Throws it in your face*

*I'll be there*

*When the person you trusted*
*Betrays you*
*When the person you share all your memories with*
*Cant even remember your birthday*

*I'll be there*

*When all you need is a friend*
*To listen to you whine*
*When all you need is someone*
*To catch your tears*
*I'll be there*

* When your heart hurts so bad*
* You cant even breathe*
* When you just want to crawl up and die*
*I'll be there*

*When you start to cry*
*After hearing that sad song*
*When the tears just won't*
*Stop falling down*
*I'll be there*

*So you see I'll be there until the end*
*This is a promise I can make*
*If you ever need me*
*Just give me a call and...*
*I'll be there...*

"it's amazing how quickly a broken heart can mend when it stumbles

across the perfect person"

"We spend most of our time talking about nothing, but I just want to let you know that all those nothings have meant so much more to me than so many somethings."

"i love our silly fights over who loves who more &
our late night talks about the most random things.
i love how you make me feel
like i've got angel wings.
you're a
miracle sent from above..
a miracle that i absolutely

"so, when the rest of the world turns their back on him.
let him know that your still there. & that you always will be.
& that your love for him will never change"

We all make decisions thats will change the rest of our lives, it is in these moments that heros are made

"when your life falls apart always remember
i will be the one who will stay to help
you pick the
pieces up && when the rest
of the world walks out on you remember
not to close the door because i am the one who
will be
walking in to help you through it all ."

"Till my very last breath, CrAzY days, screwed up nights, tons of crushes and stupid fights, secrets we'll take to the grave, pictures we'll forever save, through thick and thin, always TRUE, i dunno where i'd be without you"

"it`s those days where we sit around & do nothing. it`s the moments we laugh so hard, we cry. it`s the way we look at eachother & know what`s going on through each other`s head it`s those stupid pictures & the jokes. those are the reasons we`re best friends"

In every girls life there's A guy that she will never forget and the summer where it all began....:)

"Sometimes i wonder. I wonder that perhaps we REALLY weren't meant to be. Perhaps you were here to teach me a lesson. Even though my heart says it loves you more than anything in all eternity, something tells me that all this pain, all these fears and all the emotions you ever caused...it's here to teach me a valuable lesson. So, when i really do meet the person i love in all eternity, i won't make the same mistake i made with you"

"..sometimes you will f.o.r.g.i.v.e someone simply because you still

want them in your Life"

*Not All Scars Show*

*Sometimes You Can't Always See*

*The Pain Someone Feels*

" Life's just like a treadmill. No matter how fast you go or how hard you try, you'll sometimes never get anywhere. It's like riding a fast rollercoaster blindfolded. There will be ups and downs, and you won't know when there will be sharp turns..you won't even when it'll end. Life's like a book. Every page is a mystery..but you're the one in charge of the pen. When things go wrong, life is like an hour glass. Sooner or later the sand hits rock bottom, but all you have to do is be patient and wait for someone to just turn everything around. It's like walking in the snow. Be careful with the steps you take because every footprint will show. Making a mistake doesn't matter..what matters is how determined you are to fix it. But remember, a mistake is like writing on a foggy window..no matter how hard you try to cover it up, if you look close enough it's still there."

"in your life you will meet people. some you'll
never think about again. some you wonder
what happend to them some you wonder if
they even think about you
and then there are
those you
wish you never had to think about
but you do."

"Smile -- It makes a world of difference.
Dance -- Who knows when you wont be able to.
Cry -- Holding those emotions in is bad for you.
Kiss -- Kisses are the most wonderful things in the world.
Laugh -- Whats the point in hiding happiness?
Frown -- Why not let him know you're unhappy?
Apologize -- You dont wanna lose friends.
Hug -- Theres no better feeling being wrapped up close to someone you love.
Live -- because life is everything"

"You just have to live your life
not caring and shake off the drama
just to prove that you're better
than they think you are."

"We're young and we're gonna screw up a lot
& you know we're gonna keep changing our minds
& our hearts & thru that the only [rEaL] thing
we could offer each other is forgiveness.
Don't let you urself get so angry that you -stop- loving
because, one day you'll wake up from that anger
& the person you love will be gone"

Eventually one of two things will happen,

either he will realize youre worth it

or you will realize he isnt.

When I talk to you it's as if time has stopped and the only thing happening is me and you.
I feel as if nothing could come between us. You are all I think about, day and night.
You are the one that makes me smile, makes me laugh, makes all my worries go away.
I am so happy I found you. Without you I don't know what I would do

A million words couldn't bring you back I know because I've tried, Neither could a million
tears I know because I've cried.

Why do I have to climb a 100 mountains to get to you, when all you have to do is smile to get to me?

If you want me to fall for you, you got to give me something worth tripping over

Everyone says you only fall in love once , but thats not true....everytime I hear your voice
I fall in love all over again.

When I cry
Your there for me
When I'm lost or depressed
Your there to cheer me up
I ask you why and you say,
"Because. That's what a best friend does"

I want someone to grant my wishes, I want a boy who will blow me kisses, I want a friend that
I can care for, and I wanna find a love that's not so painful

I ran up the door, closed the stairs, said my pajamas and put on my prayers. I turned off the
bed and hopped into the light... all because you kissed me goodnight

Friends are supposed to help you through the rough times not put you through them

A shoulder to cry on, letters to send, money to borrow, clothes to lend, friday night hangouts, afternoon walks, 2am phonecalls, private girl-talks, memories together will never end, always, and forever... My BeSt FrIeNdS!

You've cried and your eyes are puffy and red. You see the guy and he asks what's wrong
and you say nothing. He leaves, you turn around, start crying and whisper everything...

BF can mean two things bestfriend and boyfriend, I just want to find someone that can be both

A true friend sees the hurt in your eyes when everyone else is fooled by your smile

Before I met you I never knew what it was like; to look at someone and smile for no reason

Being with you makes me feel like for once in my life I don't have to work so hard on being happy, it just happens

I don't think that I sould have to try and prove myself to people all the time. So I'm gonna quit trying and never mind the rest, I'm gonna be myself cause that's what I do best.

Laugh and the world laughs with you.  Cry and you
cry with your girlfriends.
Draw a crazy picture Write a nutty poem Sing a
mumble-gumble song Whistle through your comb Do a
loony-goony dance 'Cross the kitchen floor Put
something silly in the world That ain't been there
You grow up the day you have your first real laugh
-        at yourself.
I don't know why you are so special to me? why I like you? Why I care for you? Why I always think of you? Why I loved you but one thing for sure I know that my life won't be like this w/o you!

Among you're friends, I care for you the most. Among you're friends, I love you the most. Among you're friends, you hurt me the most. 'Because I know that's all I am to you… among your friends…

I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme.
I hate it, I hate the way you're always right.
I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it that you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call.
But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you... Not even close,
not even a little bit,
not even at all.

Heavens not a place that you go when you die,

It's that moment in life when you actually feel alive.

So live for the moment

As much as I wanted the answer I expected,

I needed the answer I got.

we all make mistakes. we all go a little over the edge sometimes. and sometimes the hardest thing is knowing you cant go back in time. its alot easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend. its alot easier to blame someone else than to realize you are the one creating the problems. and even if you think you're hurting: look around. and somewhere in the middle of it all you'll realize..
i blew it.

so. pretty much i tried to forget about boys.mostly a certain boy. but problem: its mentally impossible for any girl not to like a boy even a little bit. even a smidgen. impossible. so basically i just had to slap myself a few times and face the fact.. that no matter how hard i try
...i still like him.

I don't believe makeup and the right hairstyle alone can make a woman beautiful. The most radiant woman in the room is the one full of life and experience.

We begin to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly

You laugh at me because I'm different, I laugh at you because you're all the same.

If you laugh a lot, when you get older your wrinkles will be in the right places.

The truth is everyone is going to hurt you . . . you just have to decide who is worth the >PAIN<

Fake is the new trend. . . I guess everyone is in style

I hate you then I love you. It's like I wanna push oyu off a cliff then dive to the bottom to save you

You broke my heart into two tears so why didn't I cry just two tears?

I.L.o.v.e.Y.o.u is eight letters long . . . so is b.u.l.l.s.h.i.t

Nothing is more ->painful<- then realizing he means everything to you, but you are nothing to him.

I was having such a good day till I woke up.

'm going to smile like nothing's wrong, talk like everything is perfect, act like it's all a dream, and pretend this isn't hurting me.

To fear love is to fear life

You don't love a woman because she is beautiful, but she is beautiful because you love her.

Love doesn't make the world go 'round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.

Win as if you were used to it, lose as if you enjoyed it for a change.

The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.

Expecting life to treat you well because you are a good person is like expecting an angry bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian.

I love that you get cold when it is 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle in your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

"If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear."

-Winnie The Pooh

don't waste your time worrying about boys-- boys will come and go. don't waste your time caring about the people who don't like you -- chances are you don't like them either. don't waste your time worrying if people are talking about you -- you affected their lives, they didn't affect yours. waste your time with friends -- live for the moment, laugh often, be immature, do anything and everything. if it's something you'll regret in the morning, sleep late & when you wake up, laugh about it with your friends, because your friends are what matter most. when you have your friends...you have everything.

im not sure what is a dream and what is real or if real is a real word and if words even exist outside of our imagination..i still can't say for certain if falling asleep is opening your eyes in the morning or closing them at night. and im lonely. but not sadly. everybody is alone. i want love like love wants love..oxygen and drifting clouds. and im not scared to be alive. these days more people are. money is an illusion. the world has been gaining some sort of momentum over "time" and every day it's spinning faster. we are growing up too quick. someday i'll start to.

The best advice I can give is to ignore advice. Life is too short to be
distracted by the opinions of others.
--Russel Edson
You're a good example of why some animals eat their young
Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.
It's hard to face reality when reality has many faces.
Habit is something you can do without thinking,
which is why most of us have so many of them.

Thoughts lead on to purposes;
purposes go forth in action;
actions form habits;
habits decide character;
and character fixes our destiny.

Love and eggs are best when they are fresh.
To love means not to impose your own powers on your fellow man but offer him your help. And if he refuses it, to be proud that he can do it on his own strength.
Learning is the art of ignoring.
Don't shoot the piano-player; he's doing the best
he can.
Do not despair, every new born baby is ugly
Middle age is when you've met so many people that
every new person you meet reminds you of someone
You know you are getting old when the candles cost
more than the cake.
if young love is just a game i must have missed the kick-off
I refuse to think of them as chin hairs.  I think
of them as stray eyebrows
Life is just one damned thing after another.
- Elbert Hubbard
don't tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon
♥april doesn't last forever..

so let's take advantage of it..and kiss in the rain!
if one day I actually start to matter, let me know..
Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone.
The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. stone crumbles. wood rots. people, well, they die. but things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. ♥
Those who don’t know how to cry with their whole heart don’t know how to laugh either.
If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self..
There's alot of people on this planet, who are more than willing to give up their world for someone they love, but they'll never realize what they're giving up until they find someone who won't take that from them, because they care too much.
&The greatest thing in life

is finding someone who knows all of your mistakes and differences and yet still finds

you absolutely amazing<3
I'm selfish, impatient, and a little

insecure. i make mistakes, i am

out of control. and at times hard

to handle. but if you can't handle

me at my worst, then you sure as

hell don't deserve me at my best.
Dont wait for the one that sucks up to you

wait for the one who pushes your buttons

and pisses you off on a regular basis

love isnt supposed to be easy
Love is a dangerous thing. butterflies in your stomach and your heart skipping beats;goodness that can't be healthy.
He's the reason 4 the teardrops on my guitar,

the only1 that has enough of me 2 break my hart, he's the song in the car I keep singing,

don't know why I do

If i could tell you one thing, it would be that
i love hearing your voice & that your
smile just happens to brighten my entire
day & those little things you do and you not knowing that u do them makes me crazy about you

Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I’m not perfect-and I don’t need to be. But before you start pointing fingers.. make sure your hands are clean.

We’re not sarcastic-we’re hilarious.

Life is full of secrets and lies.. so when you get screwed over don’t be surprised.

I love talking to you for even a minute, because I know for just that one moment you paid attention to me.

We walk around talking to complete strangers; laugh for absolutely no reason at all; have stupid fights that are over in ten minutes; attempt to dance and sing like they do on the music videos; have a billion “you-had-to-be-there” moments; gang up on the bitch that has a problem with one of us; make fun of each other when we run into stuff; act like we’re on crack; and no matter what happens, we’re always there for each other through good&bad.

I’m the kinda girl who will burst out laughing because of something that happened the day before. .

I don’t want anyone else to get the chance to realize how truly amazing you are.

I am no where near perfect,
I fall for boys too easily
im vulnerable to believing lies
im hoping one day I wont have to fake a smile
I live by the quotes that explain exactly what im going through
I have best friends and enemies
I am an average teenager
(and that’s life)
love it, live it.. learn from it

life is to short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right and forget the ones who don't. & beleive that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said that life would be easy, they just promised it'd be worth it.

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.

Do what makes you happy.
be with who makes you smile.
laugh as much as you breathe.

boys lie. so save yourself the heartbreak, & don't beleive them.

I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.

I've worked too hard and too long to let anything stand in the way of my goals. I will not let my teammates down and I will not let myself down.

The person that said winning isn't everything, never won anything.

You can't just beat a team, you have to leave a lasting impression in their minds so they never want to see you again.

Life is about trusting your feelings and taking a chance, losing and finding happiness, appreciating the memories and learning from the past, and realizing people always change

I have been through more than you can think of and you want to die, so does that make it wrong for me to want to live?

Failure happens all the time. It happens every day in practice. What makes you better is how you react to it.
Don't worry about the people in your past. There's a reason they didn't make it to your future.
You get one life. That's it. So if someone chooses to be a Junkie, a Christian, a Beauty Queen, a Prostitute, a College Student, a Drop Out, a Mother, etc., deal with it, because it's not your life. Maybe you don't care what I have to say and you can judge me all day long and say I'm nothing, but I know I'm everything. I'm going to say what you all want to [but I don't], because I have the voice and the power to do it. There's nothing else to it. Let all your walls down and just realize you only live once. So don't let anyone judge you because you like something they don't
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed; and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail and keep on trying.
 Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
 Defeat doesn't finish a man--quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits.
Noble deeds and hot baths are the best cures for depression.
 Being happy is something you have to learn. I often surprise myself by saying "Wow, this is it. I guess I'm happy. I got a home I love. A career that I love. I'm even feeling more and more at peace with myself." If there's something else to happiness, let me know. I'm ambitious for that, too.
Did you ever see an unhappy horse? Did you ever see bird that had the blues? One reason why birds and horses are not unhappy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses.
In order to excel, you must be completely dedicated to your chosen sport. You must also be prepared to work hard and be willing to accept destructive criticism. Without 100 percent dedication, you won't be able to do this.
My thoughts before a big race are usually pretty simple. I tell myself: Get out of the blocks, run your race, stay relaxed. If you run your race, you'll win... channel your energy. Focus.
I'm tired of hearing about money, money, money, money, money. I just want to play the game, drink Pepsi, wear Reebok.
The only way I'd worry about the weather is if it snows on our side of the field and not on theirs.
We should not have to push you to work hard, you should work hard because you want to be a great player.
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
The same girl who laughs and talks a lot and seems very happy is also the girl who may cry herself to sleep...

When I think of the last time somebody made me feel good.. the last time somebody made me really laugh... the last time somebody made me happy... I was with you.
I smile when i see you, I smile when i talk to you, i smile when you touch me, I smile when you're near me, I smile when you look at me, I smile when I think of you, I smile for you. But the one time I'm truly happy is when I make YOU smile back.
Yeah, I miss your smile.

But I miss mine more...
True happiness is True happiness is singing at the top of your lungs in your car while the people in the car next to you are staring
Go back to the time when...

Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-moe"

Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "do over!"

"Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.

Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "monopoly"

It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.

Being old, referred to anyone over 20.

The chance to skate as a couple at the local roller rink was like winning the lottery....

The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was the lurgi.

Nobody was prettier than Mum

Nobody was cooler than Dad

Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better

It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the "big people" rides at the fair...

When playing nintendo was the hardest thing ever.

When ninja turtles ruled the world.

If you can remember most or all of these,

then you have LIVED IN THE 90's!!!the GOOD OLE DAYS!!
You can't buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream. And that's kind of the same thing.
just remember... it doesnt matter how long you have known each other.. all that matters is that he has kept you smiling from day one.
The only thing standing between me and total happiness is reality.
It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.
Sometimes pain becomes such a huge part of your life that you expect it to always be there, because you can’t remember a time in you life when it wasn’t. But then one day you feel something else. Something that feels wrong only because it’s so unfamiliar, and in that moment you realize you’re happy
i cant beleive the way you make me smile, or the way you make me feel special just by glancing my way, why cant this feeling last forever, im so happy and i never thought i could feel this way and altogether you make my day
Wishing on a star wont make your dreams come true. No matter how hard you try. Your the only one who can make yourself happy. So go all out in everything that you do. Love everyone. Laugh out loud. Dont worry who sees you. And be true to yourself. And just maybe with a little luck your dreams with come true.
Happy endings are just stories that haven't finished yet.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
Then let's say God puts two people on Earth and they are lucky enough to find one another. But one of them gets hit by lightning. Well then what? Is that it? Or, perchance, you meet someone new and marry all over again. Is that the lady you're supposed to be with or was it the first? And if so, when the two of them were walking side by side were they both the one for you and you just happened to meet the first one first or, was the second one supposed to be first? And is everything just chance or are some things meant to be?
Break free and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you. Create your own life then LET GO and LIVE IT! 
MAKE EVERYDAY COUNT! Appreciate every moment and take from it everything

that you possibly can, for you may never

be able to experience it again. Talk to people who you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, even if it doesn't seem right because you are too young or too far, just follow your heart. Surround yourself with those who make you smile, laugh, and make you happy.
The people you meet affect your life.

The successes and downfalls that you

experience can create who you are, and

the bad experiences can be learned

from.... In fact, they are probably the

most poignant and important ones.

If someone hurts you, betrays you or

breaks your heart, forgive them because

they have helped you learn about trust

and the importance of being cautious

to whom you open your heart. If someone

loves you, love them back unconditionally

not only because they love you, but

also because they are teaching you to

love and open your heart and eyes to

little things.
Everything happens for a reason!

Nothing happens by chance or by means

of good luck. Illness, injury, love,

moments of true greatness and sheer

stupidity all occur to test the limits

of your soul. Without these small

tests, life would be like a smoothly

paved, straight, flat road to nowhere,

safe and comfortable but dull and

utterly pointless.
Sometimes people come into your life

and you know right away that they were

meant to be there... to serve some

sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or

help figure out who you are or who you

want to become. You never know who

these people may be but when you look

eyes with them, you know that every

moment that you are with them, they

will affect your life in some profound

way. And sometimes things happen to

you at the time that may seem horrible,

painful and unfair, but in reflection

you realize that without overcoming

those obstacles you would have never

realized your potential, strength,

will power or heart.
You laugh because I’m different..
I laugh because I just farted!
I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places.
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

work like you don't need the money... love like you've never been hurt.. and dance like nobody's watching.

dream as if you'll live forever. live as if you'll die today

you don't get to choose how you're going to die. or when. you can only decide how you're going to live. now.

do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail

when you were born, you were cryin and everyone around you was smiling. live your life so that when you die, you are smiling and everyone around you is crying.

the best way to escape from a problem is to solve it.

reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. dream deep, for every dream precedes it goal.

following the noble path is like entering a dark room with a light in the hand; the darkness will all be cleared away, and the room will be filled with light.

a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right.

a smile is a curve that can set things straight

even the smallest candle burns brighter in the dark.

death twitches my ear, 'live,' he says, 'i am coming.'

90% of being smart is knowing what you're dumb at.

better to understand a little than to misunderstand a lot.

if everyone is thinking alike then somebody isn't thinking.

it's so simple to be wise. just think of something stupid to say and then don't say it.

the difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.

to the world you are just a person, but to a person you can be the world.

you don't love a woman because she is beautiful, but she is beautiful because you love her.

whatever you do may seem insignificant, but it is most important that you do it.

absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the can
there's two theories to aruguing with women. neither one works

some people are funny. they spend money they don't have, to buy things they don't need, to impress people they don't like...

she who laughs, lasts

stop the q-tip when you hit resistance.

if you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there

sometimes i think i understand everything. then i regain consciousness.

it's true hard work never killed anybody, but i figure, why take the chance?

don't eat the yellow snow

i may not be perfect, but i'm always me.

life is what happens to us while we're making other plans

when gary told me he found Jesus, i thought, yahoo! we're rich! but it turned out to be something different.

Jesus loves you, the rest of us think you're an idiot.

broken promises don't upset me. i just think, why did they believe me?

i work very hard- please don't expect me to think as well..

i'm planning to retire and live off my savings. what i'll do the second day, i have no idea.

rehab is for quitters.

the only thing wrong with a perfect drive to work is that you end up at work.

the main reason santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.

masturbation is nothing to be ashamed of. it's nothing to be particularly proud of, either.

anyone without a sense of humor is at the mercy of the rest of us.

I think i've fallen for you..and i'll never forget the night we met or the night we kissed, i'll always remember you..but i guess i'm a fool for thinking that you're thinking of me
She'd be in mid-sentence and all he'd have to do is smile at her for her to forget everything she was saying.

Live the life you want to live.

Be the person you would be proud of.

Make decisions. Make mistakes.

If you fall, at least you fall because you tried.

No regrets.


Dont go knocking on Deaths Door.

Ring the bell and run, he hates that!

We're friends, real friends.

& that means, no matter how long it takes,

when you finally do decide to look back,

I'll be here.
Don't give up on love because there is

always someone who loves you, even if

it's not the person you were hoping for.
All she really wants is someone who will...catch her when she falls, someone to realize her worth and hold her hand for no reason but the fact that they like the way it fits with theirs. Someone who will sit with her under the stars, kiss her in the pouring rain & look into her eyes & say you're the one I've been waiting for.
We're all a little weird. And life's a little

weird. And when we find someone whose

weirdness is compatible with ours, we join

up in mutual weirdness and call it friendship.
Drama's made for movies, not reality.
I just want a different ending to our same old story. Let's try & make it last this time & prove them all wrong.
Let's kiss in the rain

When the rain is so hard that if our eyes were open, the only thing we would see, is each other.
Don't make her wait for you, just

because you know she will
the best kind of kiss is the un-expected ; unplanned

ones that come naturally. like, in the middle of a sentence.

Life is too short to be anything but happy,

So kiss slowly, love deeply, forgive quickly,

Take chances, give everything, have no regrets,

And forget the bad in the past.

Just remember all it has taught you.

keep your head up kid because

there are people killing to see you fall
True friends want you to be happy, even if they dont like the decisions you make
he looked at me & said,

'do you ever feel like you're working

for something you're never going to get?

you shoot-&-miss kind of deal.

like, no matter what, you can't have it,

but that makes you fight for it just a little bit more?'

i looked at him, stared at him for a second,

& replied, 'everyday'

Life is short.

Its up to you to make it sweet.

so take a chance, and make it BIG.

love is about being cute and stupid together

not being in bed together.

Take nothing but photographs

leave nothing but footprints

and kill nothing but time

Isn`t it funny how day-by-day

nothing changes, but then when

you look back, everything is different
i'm still going to love you tomorrow, and probably

a year from now,
but i'll never understand why. i'll

never understand love and why it makes everybody

so crazed. everybody wants to feel needed, but lately,

we're going to extremes

i said i'm okay, but i know how to lie.
you were all that i had. you were
delicate and hard to find.

you never lose yourself,
you just forget who you are.

so let's say that "theoretically," i really

like you, and "theoretically," even

though it sounds moronically cliché and

overused, you give me butterflies. and,

just for kicks , let's add that—all in

theory of course
— you may be one

of the most wonderful people i have ever

met. and hypothetically, my heart beats

ten times faster when i see you. do

think that you would supposedly

( and in the most theoretical sense )

feel the same way?
when i walk by the two of you together it seems your voice gets louder, your smile gets bigger & you hold her even tighter it`s as if you want to prove a point .. you want to show me your happy well i`ll let you know something, your point is proven & you`ve achieved your goal because if it`s sorrow you want me to be in don`t worry, you took care of that a long time ago
i wait for the day when i forget who you are, when the

sound of your name is old and worn, the days when

i won't remember why i needed you so bad.
i remember when i first saw you. i remember

the way i felt. and you're breaking me to pieces.

and i don't know how i deal with this, but i

fight. learned, anything at all it was to always

be true to yourself and know this isn't the

end of this. i will fall.
Not a day goes by when I don't sit and wonder why this had to be. It doesnt seem fair to me. The more I wish and pray, the more it seems I waste away. But it would mean oh so much if I could just reach out and our hands would touch, and if I'd just go back again and do it all over - it would have a happy ending.
it's so sad realizing two people,

who were once so close,

barely speak a word anymore.

people always turn out to be the person they promised they wouldn`t

you wanna know what the truth is?

I still love you, and I probably will love you for

a very long time. but I can't just be your buddy,

because as much as I enjoy the concept of

being, "just friends", in reality it's a bizarre form

of torture. and I'm not willing to participate in it.

so right now what I want to do is just move on

and get over you and the only way for me to

do that is not to be around you anymore.
You hear people talking about love like it's

just something you say, something you fall in

and out of over night. If only they knew about

how you can get stuck in love & how once

you're stuck you can't get out, even if the

other person feels differently about you
she's finally accepted the changes

realizing nothing can be the same anymore

but she's keeping her strength up

she's willing to try her best to never look back
and i ran into a [random] picture of you 

i looked into those eyes and suddenly,

i knew exactly what i was missing <3
She constantly has something to say to you, but when she sees you, she gets scared & freezes. So she just stands and stares, & finally when you don't notice, she turns and walks the other way
i have learned to take a step back and stop trying to understand all the whys and how comes that go along with the world and this life. sometimes you really just have to say "fuck it" and just live.
nobody knew that you sent me texts at night

saying "good night, i love you" or in the morning saying "good morning, beautiful. did you sleep well?" nobody understood why i fell for you,

all they saw was the result ; a broken heart.
sometimes the smallest things

are the hardest to do, like

clicking on his screen name

& just saying hi
from the corner of my eye, i see a glimpse of you.

my <heart3 is just about to burst into butterflies,

but my mind scolds & says "control yourself.

you know that this boy isn't right for you anymore."
I`m not the prettiest &I`m always told my best friends are hotter

I`m not the smartest &the nerd always gets a grade higher

but somehow, even when I`ve just been put down so bad,

you wrap me in your arms & make me perfectly okay
He knew he made a mistake. You could see it in his face every time she walked into the room. He wished he hadn't done that to her.
i wasn`t one for sappy l o v e songs

i never really took things took things seriously

until i found out exactly what they meant...

The hurt began to fade & it was easier to let go... at least I thought it was. But in every boy I met in the next few years, I found myself looking for you, & when the feelings got too strong, I'd write you another letter. But I never sent them, in fear of what I might find. By then, you'd gone on with your life & I didn't want to think about loving someone else. I wanted to remember us like we were. I didn't want to ever forget

I quit. I'm over you. I fell so hard.

I was always there when you

needed to talk to someone. Yeah

so basically I'm tired of being

just a friend or chasing you. So

if you want me, I'm here. But I'm

done wasting all my time on

someone who doesn't care.
if you see me walking with someone else

its not because i love them, its because

you werent there to walk with me. if i fall in

love with someone else, its not because i wanted to,

but because you werent there to catch me.
you hit me with the truth; I would have preferred a bus.
'm amazed how yesterday, i told you

absolutely everything, and today, we go

out of our way to ignore each other
Take your damn fairy tale endings

and your hopes, dreams, & wishes

and shove them up your ass.

Greatness is not in where we stand, but what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes with the wind, and sometimes against it-

Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh.
Players win games, teams win championships.
Winning isn't everything. It's the only thing.
Sport is dead when citius, altius, fortius is replaced by fixius, drugius, corruptius. We have reached the logical end of sport. Everywhere you look, you find stories of people who have taken the sport out of sport. We expect to hear the decisions on the Italian football match-fixing scandal. The football itself is a sham, going through the motions. The real action takes place on the telephone in the weeks before the game. In England, three jockeys have been suspended from riding after being accused by police of fixing races. The dominant point of this year’s Tour de France is not the pedal-pushing but the second significant drugs scandal in eight years: the revelation of the incontrovertible fact that professional cycling is institutionally corrupt. These three things — match-fixing, race-fixing, institutionalised drugging — come down to the same thing, and it is the greatest error in all of professional sport. The error in question is that sport is about winning. Winning at all costs. That winning is not the most important thing, but the only thing. If you sincerely believe that winning is everything, all the rest follows. If the only ethic is victory, then these things are not options. They are demanded: the least you can do... The essential fact about sport is that you don’t know what happens next. No one does. We watch sport not for the victory, but for the struggle. In other words, those that seek victory at all costs are destroying sport. They are creating a spectacle in which we, the punters, have no interest. People are far less interested in track and field athletics than they once were because there has been too much drugging... Professionalism will be the death of sport; or it will, if we carry on believing in it. But at last, we are beginning to see the price of winning at all costs.
Wait, I just remembered something! You're boring and my legs work.

The rules of soccer are very simple, basically it is this: if it moves, kick it. If it doesn't move, kick it until it does.
I'm as happy as I can be - but I have been happier.
Even though we’ve changed and we’re all finding our own place in the world we all know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we’ll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we’re not all still friends.

If you don’t like the news make your own!
Remember the way you used to make me feel, the way you held me close and I could feel your heart beating but mine stopped and when I was smilling I was always with you, because you made me happy…you were my happiness. And all I do now is wish I had that back, when you would look into my eyes and tell me that you loved me I suddenly became speechless, and everytime we would kiss I felt like I was floating.  Why did it have to end? The days went by and more and more the tears ran down my face and the memories I had of us suddenly turned into the day you walked away, the day you stopped loving me. And all I could think about was “what did I do?” when I see you with another girl I fall apart because I wish I could be her again, and when I would see you my heart would break knowing you weren’t smiling because of me. But days go by and one thing will always remain the same..
You’re the only guy I ever think about.

The best kind of love is the kind that awakens the soul, and makes us want to search for more.
You know that moment when you kiss someone and everything becomes hazy and the only thing in focus is you and that person and you realize that that person is the only person that you’re supposed to kiss for the rest of your life. and for on e moment you get this gift. And you want to laugh and you want to cry because you feel so lucky that you found it and so scared that it will go away all at the same time.

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
It is not the strongest of the species that survive , nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
Humor is perhaps a sense of intellectual perspective: an awareness that some things are really important, others not; and that the two kinds are most oddly jumbled in everyday affairs.
Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to one another, when we don’t judge or categorize someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt. Charity is accepting someone’s differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn’t handle things the way we might have hoped. Charity is refusing to take advantage of each other’s weaknesses and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best from each other.
Gordon B Hinckley
Character, not circumstance, makes the person.
Our lives teach us who we are.
A person’s character is what it is. It’s a little like a marriage – only without the option of divorce. You can work on it and try to make it better, but basically you have to take the bitter with the sweet.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
“The best index to a person’s character is (a) how he treats people who can’t do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can’t fight back.
Character is an essential tendency. It can be covered up, it can be messed with, it can be screwed around with, but it can’t be ultimately changed. It’s the structure of our bones, the blood that runs through our veins.
f we want our children to possess the traits of character we most admire, we need to teach them what those traits are and why they deserve both admiration and allegiance. Children must learn to identify the forms and content of those traits.
before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself.  The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience. 
I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand.  It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.  You rarely win, but sometimes you do.

one:: the thing about real life is, when you do something stupid, it costs you. in books, the heroes can make as many mistakes as they like. it doesn't matter what they do, because everything comes out right at the end. they'll beat up the bad guys and put things back how they should be, an everything ends up hunky-dory. in real life, vacuum cleaners kill spiders. if you cross a busy road without

looking, you get whacked by a car. if you fall out of a tree, you break some bones. real life's nasty. it's cruel. it doesn't care about heroes and happy endings and the way things should be. in real life, bad things happen. people die. fights are lost. evil often wins.

two:: sometimes i just want to push you into the oncoming traffic, but then i realize i'd kill myself trying to save you

three:: i hate how everyone compares love to romeo & juliet. did anyone ever READ that play? the two met for a few minutes, started hitting it a few hours later on a balcony. they married three days later. three freakin days! keep in mind they hardly spoke then. got married, did the "big deed", and long story short - they died. they were lust. i bet juliet didnt even know romeo's favorite color, his friends, much less his birthday. i dont want a relationship like that. i want one where i know everything about him, that i know its more important than looks.

four:: drama was made for movies, not reality

five:: they load us down with homework, essays, projects,and assignments. put us in a place where no one can keep a secret and your best friend is a slut. they criticize the way we dress and put down the music we listen to. they set us up for failure and then gladly give us an "f". they stress us out beyond imagination and wonder why so many of us choose to dropout, turn to drugs, or just end it all with a simple suicide. and this is why america's education will always be the worst.

six:: once you get what you want, you've got something to lose.

seven:: some people expect things to fall into their lap. oh, they might work a bit for it. i'll just shake that tree, & if i shake it long enough that pretty red apple will plop right into my hand. never occurs to them that they might have to climb the damn tree, fall out a couple of times, get some scrapes & bruises before they get to that apple. because if the apple's worth wanting, it's worth wanting, its worth risking a broken neck

eight:: we all make decisions thats will change the rest of our lives, it is in these moments that heros are made

nine:: there comes a point where you miss someone so much that you can hear their voice echo in your head & you can hear the names that they used to call you; the words they used to tell you. you memorized their laugh, their smile & their silly ways. you can also feel their arms around you & you don't want to let go even though you know that it's just an illusion. every time your phone rings, you smile because, maybe this time, it's them that's calling. every time you hear their name, your heart beats a hundred times faster & sometimes, you can't even breathe. you knew that looking back on the tears would make you laugh but you never knew that looking back on the laughs would also make you cry. and all you want is to go back in time. not to the time that you first met, but to the time that you were known as nothing but strangers and everything was simple. But no matter what, you're in denial. you hide your feelings, so no one would know. you put on a fake smile & don't let a single tear break through. your thoughts become invisible, but it's still there, like a love letter you didn't send. and you're hurting no one but yourself.

ten:: you can't tell your heart what to do it does it all on it's own

No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. We absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn, so we don’t make the same mistakes they did.

take wild chances on wild nights, a
and make the best of everything

Nobody else is even worth thinking about.

It’s funny how it all works out sometimes.
How the ones who love you the most

End up breaking you the worst.

eventually all the pieces
will fall into place...
until then laugh at the confusion,
live for the
and just know that everything
happens for a reason.

When things were said...
lies were told
this love was dead...
BEFORE it got old.

Never take a person for granted.
Hold every person close to your heart
cause you might wake up one day & realize
that you’ve lost a DIAMOND while you were
too busy collecting stones.

Life is just like an hour glass.
Eventually, everything hits the bottom.
& all you have to do is wait it out
until some one comes along and
turns it around

h e r e ` s t o
the fun we have, the guys we stalk
the way we shop, the laughs we cant stop
the gossip we spill & the looks that can kill
to having lots of fun & drowning in tears
we'll stay together all through the years

if you're gonna be two faced

sweetie; at least make one of them pretty

All i want is for [ one ] guy to prove
to me that they arent all the same<3

watch it,
cause he'll take it
and wont give it back
He will talk to you for hours,
then never call back
He will tell your special,different and true,
then he takes your heart
and breaks it in two

the only thing its about is getting crazy with your best friends,
flirting with that one boy you've got your eye on,
looking cute in that perfect swimming suit,
agonizing over tanlines, and making the best memories possible.

here's to your bestfriends. the only ones who you can
depend on for the best lunchtime conversations, the only
ones who will ask you how to make-out with thier
boyfriend, because they don't know which way to
move their tongues. =]

I wanna be your last, first kiss

you know yourself.
you know you love him.

but you somehow cant seem to know why.

we're best friends.
we have marker fights, chasing eachother around the room.
you never want to give us paint for an actual project,
because it will all end up on us.
we can never concentrate on anything when we're together,
and its probably a bad idea to give us something complicated to do.
we laugh about absolutely nothing, and get in trouble all the time.
but all of this, its what makes us best friends.

somedays, i guess, everythings okay and i think maybe i'm getting over him.
but then the next day comes and its like i know right when i wake up that its won't be a good day.
those days are the ones i wake up with thoughts of him. thoughts of what we used to be,
of all the memories we shared. thoughts of what could have been,
of what i might have done differently. what i wish i would have done differently.

My limbs work, so I’m not going to complain about the way my body is shaped

Use your disadvantages to your advantage

I refuse to let someone else’s negativity have a part in the way I feel about my life.

I love when I can see a girl who can laugh really loud and not care who’s watching her

Don’t tell people what to do,

Show them how to be.

Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.

Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.

One of the illusions of life is that the present hour is not the critical, decisive hour. Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year. He only is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with worry, fret and anxiety. Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it will and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moments day on yesterdays

Be not faithless, but believing. Believe in your capacity to do some good in this world. God sent us here for a purpose and that was to improve the world in which we live. The wonderful thing is that we can do it" (Pres. Hinckley)

I'm trying to find myself as a person, sometimes that's not easy to do. Millions of people live their entire lives without finding themselves. But it is something I must do. The best way for me to find myself as a person is to prove to myself that I am an actress. –marilyn Monroe

People so seldom say I love you And then it's either too late or love goes. So when I tell you I love you, It doesn't mean I know you'll never go, Only that I wish you didn't have to.

Yes I love him. I love him more than anything else in this world and there is nothing that I would like better than to hold on to him forever. But I know it's not for the best. So no matter how much my heart is going to break, I've got to let him go so he can know just how much I love him. Maybe if I'm lucky, he'll come back, but if not, I can make it through this.

Until this moment, I never understood how hard it was to lose something you never had.

Promise me you'll never forget me because if I thought you would I'd never leave.

Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn't work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos.

As I look back on all that's happened..growing up, growing together, changing you, changing me -- there were times when we dreamed together, when we laughed and cried together. As I look back on those days, I realize how much I truly miss you and how much I truly love you. The past may be gone forever..and whatever the future holds, our todays make the memories of tomorrow. So, my lifetime friend, it is with all my heart that I send you my love, hoping that you'll always carry my smile with you, for all we have meant to each other and for whatever the future may hold.

I try to talk to you, but I don't know what to say. I am afraid you don't want me to say anything. So I don't. But inside of me there are words waiting to come out.And tell you how I feel-like how I miss you. And how I love you despite my broken heart.And how I need you in my life. And especially how much I want you.But those words may forver stay in my heart-locked inside.Sometimes I wonder if there are words locked inside you too... but I'll never know.

Love is when you shed a tear and still want him, it's when he ignores you and you still love him, it's when he loves another girl but you still smile and say I'm happy for you, when all you really do is cry.

Smile, even if it's a sad smile, because sadder than a sad smile is the sadness of not knowing how to smile.

Love is what makes two people sit in the middle of a bench when there is plenty of room at both ends

If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you.” – whinnie the pooh

Tell me I'm clever, Tell me I'm kind, Tell me I'm talented, Tell me I'm cute, Tell me I'm sensitive, Graceful and wise, Tell me I'm perfect-- But tell me the truth.” – shel silverstein

It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?"” – whinnie the pooh

"Keep a good heart. That's the most important thing in life. It's not how much money you make or what you can acquire. The art of it is to keep a good heart." --- Joni Mitchell

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt

“The only man who makes no mistakes is the man who never does anything.” –tr

“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checked by failure...than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt

Just remember, the same as a spectacular Vogue magazine, remember that no matter how close you follow the jumps: Continued on page whatever. No matter how careful you are, there's going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn't experience it all. There's that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should've been paying attention. Well, get used to that feeling. That's how your whole life will feel some day. This is all practice. None of this matters. We're just warming up.

When [he] kisses you he isn't doing anything else. You're his whole universe..and the moment is eternal because he doesn't have any plans and isn't going anywhere. Just kissing you...it's overwhelming.
