You know, all that really matters is that the people you love are happy and healthy.
Everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae.
( Paul Walker )
It’s better to cry than to be angry.
Because anger hurts others, while tears flow silently through the soul and cleanses the heart.
The best gift you could ever give someone is your time.
Because you are giving them something that you will never get back.
Learn to be alone and to like it.
There is nothing more freeing and empowering than learning to like your own company.
( Mandy Hale )
I may not have everything I want.
But I am grateful to have everything I need.

Life is very complicated.
Don’t try to find answers because when you find answers life changes the questions.
Never say mean words out of anger.
Your anger will pass.
But your mean words can scar a person for life.
So use kind words or be silent.
Don’t mistake my kindness for weakness.
I am kind to everyone, but when someone is unkind to me, weak is not what you are going to remember about me.
( Al Capone )
Sometimes those who don’t socialise much are not actually anti-social.
They just have no tolerance for drama and fake people.
Do not judge by appearances.
A rich heart may be under a poor coat.
The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.

The rest are just curious.

It is a requirement.

Sometimes life doesn’t give you what you want.
Not because you don’t deserve it, but because you deserve more.
A meaningful life is not being rich, being popular, being educated, or being perfect.
A meaningful life is about being real, being humble, being tolerant, being generous, being compassionate, and being able to share ourselves and touch the lives of others.
I have decided to stick with love.
Hate is too big a burden to bear.
( Martin Luther King, Jr. )
If you don’t leave your past, it will destroy your future.
Live for what today has to offer, not for what yesterday has taken away.
Never give up.
The beginning is always the hardest.
I believe the world is one big family and we need to help each other.
( Jet Li )
Remember, it’s okay to doubt what you have been taught to believe.
Laws, and being ‘legal’, have nothing to do with justice or being fair.
Those who make the laws belong to an elite circle of arrogant little shits who will often benefit financially from the laws they make.
I sometimes agree with people just to stop them talking.
More knowledge nourishes the mind.
More love nourishes the heart.
More truth nourishes the soul.
More wisdom follows.
( Anthony Douglas Williams )
The problem is not that so many people are stupid.
The problem is thinking otherwise and being wrong.
As we grow up, we realise it is less important to have lots of friends, and more important to have real ones.
( Amanda McRae )
Happiness isn’t about getting what you want all the time.
It’s about loving what you have and being grateful for it.
Manipulation by government is when they blame the people for their mistakes and errors.
It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.
( Albert Einstein )
One of the first lessons reading teaches us is how to be alone.
Questioning and doubting the greedy, corrupt governments and corporations does not make you “anti” anything.
Nor does it make you a conspiracy theorist.
Asking questions is, and should be, the rule of reason.
The fact that questioning has now become so taboo, should send a chill up everyone’s spine.
We can either have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.
( Louis Brandeis, 1856-1941 )
I want to live my life without stress and worry.
I don’t need to be rich and famous, I just want to be happy.
Morally-inadequate humans are a virus that infects not only all living beings but our planet itself.
If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.
( Albert Einstein )
You have to take the good with the bad.
Smile when you are sad.
Love what you have got and remember what you had.
Always forgive but never forget.
Learn from your mistakes but never regret.
People change, things go wrong, just remember life goes on.
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.
( Benjamin Franklin )
I used to walk into a room full of people and wonder if they liked me.
Now I look around and wonder if I like them.
First learn the meaning of what you say, and then speak.
( Epictetus )
Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back.
It simply means that you are two steps ahead.
Being male is a matter of birth.
Being a man is a matter of age.
But being a gentleman is a matter of choice.
When my last breath has been taken, I hope that I will have lived for what I believe in.
That deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.
( Albert Einstein )
Be a girl with a mind.
A woman with attitude.
And a lady with class.
One of the greatest mental freedoms is truly not caring what anyone else thinks of you.
It would be difficult to discover the truth about the universe if we refused to consider anything that might be true.
( Richard Morris )
The sign of a beautiful person is that they always see beauty in others.
Sometimes life is about risking everything for a dream no one can see but you.
I am generous not because I have much, but because I know exactly how it feels to have nothing.
The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice.
Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable.
They are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.
( Ernest Hemingway )
What others think of you is not important.
What you think of yourself means everything.
Don’t let people make you feel bad or guilty for living your life.
It is your life.
Live it the way you want.
Success is the courage to be yourself in a world that begs you to be someone else.
( Marcia Dawkins )
A person may break your heart and damage your pride, but never ever give them the power to break your spirit.
When life knocks you down, roll over and look up at the stars.
We have lost contact with reality, the simplicity of life.
( Paulo Coelho )
A moment of patience in a moment of anger may save you from a hundred moments of regret.
We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder.
You always have the choice.
( Dalai Lama )
There are some people so obsessed with the Bible and so busy worrying about the next world, they have never learned to live in this one, and you can look around and see the results.
Every heart has some pain.
Some hide it in their eyes and some hide it in their smile.
I gave you all the gift of Free Will.
But I am saddened by how many of you have chosen evil over good.
It is a choice, I am afraid, that you will regret.
( God )
Beautiful people are not always good.
But good people are always beautiful.
No matter how far you’ve gone down the wrong road, you can always turn around.
You will never understand the suffering you caused until the same thing is done to you.
That’s why I’m here.
( Karma )
Be happy with the little you have.
There are those with nothing who still manage to smile.
Being quiet doesn’t always mean you don’t have something to say.
Before you say something, stop and think how you would feel if someone said it to you.
It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.
( Thomas Sowell )
