Quote of the Day
Immature love says: 'I love you because I need you.' Mature love says 'I need you because I love you.'
Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
We love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
I love you, and because I love you, I would sooner have you hate me for telling you the truth than adore me for telling you lies.
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.
Nobody loves a woman because she is handsome or ugly, stupid or intelligent. We love because we love.
Honore de Balzac
My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.
The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
In my deepest, darkest moments, what really got me through was a prayer. Sometimes my prayer was 'Help me.' Sometimes a prayer was 'Thank you.' What I've discovered is that intimate connection and communication with my creator will always get me through because I know my support, my help, is just a prayer away.
You can never control who you fall in love with, even when you're in the most sad, confused time of your life. You don't fall in love with people because they're fun. It just happens.
Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.
Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
Man needs his difficulties because they are necessary to enjoy success.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Thomas A. Edison
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses.
I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
My favourite poem is the one that starts 'Thirty days hath September' because it actually tells you something.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
