Quote Left People often attribute crying as a weakness within someone, but I think it is the very opposite. I think it is the strongest thing someone could do in front of another; to reveal that you have had to be strong for so long, and that you can no longer continue to stand to suffer anymore, and to allow another person to hold you tight in a moment of "weakness" is the strongest thing a person could ever do. Its trusting someone else to accept you for all your true colors, and still love you anyway. Quote Right

Quote Left Materialism is putting quantity before quality. What most people fail to realize though, is that at the end of the day, how many cars you have, or how big your house is, how much money you earn in any given year, doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. Money is a tool, that often gets in the way; blocking our beautiful view of the life laid out before our eyes. If only more people could enjoy the view like I. Quote Right

Quote Left Life isn't about material things, it's about quality v. quantity. It's not about giving the most lavish gifts or trying to prove you earned somebody's attention. Life is about the time you give someone and the quality of that time. At the end of the day, the best gift you can ever give someone, knowingly or not, is your time; because it's the one thing you can give someone but never take back. You are giving them a part of your life that can never be regained, and that's what touches hearts. Quote Right

Quote Left You'd be amazed what a person can become numb to in order to shield themselves from certain elements in life. Quote Right

Quote Left The angle we choose to shine lights on certain aspects of our life dictates the shadows that follow us and the memories contained in the shadows of every footfall imprinted on the path we call "life". Quote Right

Quote Left It's amazing the pain we force ourselves to suffer through and that we allow to weigh us down in order to guarantee the happiness of the loved ones around us; despite our personal emotions and opinions on the morale of it all at the time. Quote Right

Quote Left You can't fix what isn't broken. You can't mend what doesn't need healing. And you can't make something appear that doesn't exist. That's one of the many mechanics that keeps life moving; that's how life works, and vice versa. You can't appear where nothing exists. You can't heal a wound that isn't there or you haven't gotten yet. And you can't mend something that hasn't been broken yet. Despite how much time you put in or how hard you try, you must first be vigilant before you can be responsive Quote Right

Quote Left One day, when I die, I want to go knowing that I at least tried my best and fought my damndest to win an uphill battle, rather than to die knowing I could have done something to prevent it and didn't. Quote Right

Quote Left The meaning of life is whatever you make of it. It is a journey only you can follow; A question only you can answer; A maze only you may find a way through; And a journey we all must follow through to reach our intended destination; It's just a matter of who we shall take with us and where they might drag us off the beaten path to. Life is and always be a mystery to mankind, no matter long we plan to live, no matter what happens, always expect the unexpected; you never know where it might lead. Quote Right

Quote Left I never claimed to know everything, I just claim to know more than the majority of the people I talk to. Quote Right

Quote Left My momma said, "Baby don't you worry, it'll be alright. The past has a way or working itself out on its own. Don't live life always looking over you shoulder. Even though you may not be able to see what lies ahead, know them good times are a'comin. The only thing I want you to do is keep on keeping on, and believe tomorrow will turn out the way its supposed to; even if its not as you expected at first glance, one day you'll look back and say 'that's when everything changed for the better.'"

Quote Left We can justify our actions anyway we please, but that is only a reassurance to ourselves that we did the right thing; it doesn't make the act itself a right or wrong one. Quote Right

Quote Left Any burn has the potential to become an infected wound, we just need to suffer through the pain before we can start to heal and get better. Quote Right

Quote Left Normal is a relative term used in comparison to something or someone else. Something can only be normal compared to something else. For a child raised in abusive circumstances, beatings could be normal compared to hugs, whereas for a child raised with love, hugs are normal compared to beatings. Quote Right

Quote Left I believe that we are all born knowing everything, and life is just a matter of remembering what we have learned and already know. Quote Right

Quote Left Ignorance is bliss to those who don't have to deal with it; for those that do, it is a pain in the ass. Quote Right

Quote Left Stress in moderation is a good and healthy thing - that means you are on the right track; its when that stress turns into the things that prevent you from doing what you love, that is when it becomes a problem. Quote Right

Quote Left I have a big family that loves me. Want to know how I know that? Because I extend that invitation to my closest friends. People often say that if someone isn't blood related, they aren't truly family..and that's where they are wrong. Family is anyone you truly love and would do most anything for, no matter what. The word 'Family' is a word reserved for the people who you couldnt bear to lose at any given point in time. Blood relations only tells us who our ancestors are... not who our family is. Quote Right

Quote Left I believe that generally, people would rather be offended or get angry at the words of another, rather than admit that there is some truth to them. Quote Right

Quote Left Sometimes, the things we want most in life, are the things that are close enough to touch, but have miles of empty space in between; we can see and feel them, but can't quite grab ahold of them. Quote Right
