Get even with those who have helped you.
And forget those who have hurt you.

I realise that life is risks.
It’s acknowledging the past but looking forward.
It’s taking a chance that we will make mistakes but believing that we all deserve to be forgiven.

( Paulo Coelho )

We have only one master, and that is Mother Nature.

And that is why they forget their dreams.
( Paulo Coelho )

It is truth that liberates, not your effort to be free.
( Jiddu Krishnamurti )

Those who do not weep, do not see.

You’ve got this life and while you’ve got it, you’d better kiss like you only have one moment, try to hold someone’s hand like you will never get another chance to, look into people’s eyes like they’re the last you’ll ever see, watch someone sleeping like there’s no time left, jump if you feel like jumping, run if you feel like running, play music in your head when there is none, and eat cake like it’s the only one left in the world.

If you are a dreamer, come in.

You can feel the whole world and still feel lost in it.
So many people are in pain, no matter how smart or accomplished.
They cry, they yearn, they hurt.
But instead of looking down on things, they look up, which is where I should have been looking, too.

Because when the world quiets to the sound of your own breathing, we all want the same things.
Comfort, love and a peaceful heart.

And home is not a house-home is a mythological conceit.
It is a state of mind.
A place of communion and unconditional love.

It is where, when you cross its threshold, you finally feel at peace.

Happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give.
( Ben Carson )

Maybe you think you’ll be entitled to more happiness later by forgoing all of it now..
But it doesn’t work that way.
Happiness takes as much practice as unhappiness does.
It’s by living that you live more.
By waiting you wait more.

Every waiting day makes your life a little less.
Every lonely day makes you a little smaller.
Every day you put off your life makes you less capable of living it.
( Ann Brashares )

Be happy with who you are and what you do, and you can do anything you want.

And a smile costs nothing.

We should plague everyone with joy.
If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing?

The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.

One is called yesterday, and the other is called tomorrow.
So today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live.
