I am such a quote person. I love to look at a quote and think how I could apply that saying to my life. So here goes a few I think have great meaning:
The key elements of life are patience and that things happen in God's time, not ours.
We must let go of the life we had planned, so as to make room for the life that is waiting for us.
Everything happens for a reason. Live your life the best you possibly can, learn from your mistakes, and challenge yourself to be a better person every day. You can't change the past and there is no reason to stress about the future. What's meant to be will always find a way.
Don't be afraid to let go...you never know who will catch you when your falling!
What's meant to be will always find its way.
Anyone can catch your eyes, but it takes someone special to catch your heart.
If you can't get somebody out of your head, maybe they are meant to be there.
NEVER give up on someone you CAN'T go one day without thinking about.
The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
The sun shines brightest after the storm.
If you love something set it free; if it returns its yours forever, if not it was never meant to be.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.
When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better.
The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.
It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.
Everything is okay in the end. If it's not okay, then it's not the end.
Follow your heart for it will lead you true, follow your head to never really know YOU. For the head may lead you to your goal but the heart's journey will lead you to your soul.
If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so that I never have to live without you.
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
Our eyes are placed in front because it is more important to look ahead than to look back.
Don't settle for the one you can live with... wait for the one you can't live without.
LOVE: We think about it, sing about it, dream about it loose sleep worrying about it. When we don't know we have it, we search for it. When we discover it, we don't know what to do with it. When we have it, we fear loosing it. It is the constant source of pleasure and pain. But we don't know which it will be from one moment to the next. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define & IMPOSSIBLE to live without.
It takes the risk of a fall to fall in love.
It's the chances you take, not the choices you make that will determine your destiny.
Situations come to pass, they never come to stay. And when we allow them to pass and disappear into the past like shadows, our vibrant spiritual selves remain, powerful in the present moment. That is the constant, the unchanging, in an ever changing world. Your deepest love will also be your deepest pain. The greatest joy can also be your greatest despair. Protect what is sacred and challenge all opposing forces.
Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.
The possible and the impossible lie in a person's determination.
The grass is always greener -until you get there!
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is a beauty, admire it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is life, fight for it.
You got to give it all to live it all.
Never regret anything because at one time it was exactly what you wanted!
Love is when you find the one that carries your heart in her heart even if you do not stay together.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Love feels like heaven but it hurts like hell.
Love changes me. The way I think, the way I act, the way I decide. Sometimes I even go against my principle and beliefs in my life. Loving doesn't always mean I'll be happy, sometimes, all it provides me is pain and misery. Yet I am blinded by my strong emotions that I fail to see reality. Sometimes letting go is the only answer, and it hurts like hell. But I realized that its better to the person you love to be happy with someone else, than lonely with me. It's called SACRIFICE...
Love is somehow making choices... its either choosing pain for others happiness... or choosing happiness for others pain...
Love is pain because it isn't the one you hate that will hurt you, its the one you love.
Falling in love is not your choice....it is a game of chance. Falling out of love, however, is your decision to make.
Without love, you feel pain; with love, you end up with pain.
It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone - but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
Nobody is worth your tears, but when you find the one that is, they won't make you cry.
Love is like a book. You have to end one chapter to begin another.
As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to let us down probably will. You'll have your heart broken, probably more than once, and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when someone broke yours. You'll fight with your best friend and maybe even fall in love with them. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast and you'll eventually lose someone close to you. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every 60 seconds you spend angry or upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.
They say if you love something, you've got to let it go ~ if it comes back it means so much more; if it does not than at least you know it was something you had to go through to GROW!
Life is too short. Too short to hold grudges, too short to hate, too short to regret what could have or should have been done, too short to be upset, too short to deny someone a second chance, too short to deny forgiveness, too short to take things for granted. Too short to take life itself for granted. Live for today and live for yourself, but live a life you will be proud of.
Love starts with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a tear.
Don't cry over anyone who won't cry over you.
Don't frown. You never know who is falling in love with your smile.
When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the one which has been opened for us.
The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.
Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they'll love you back! Don't expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart but if it doesn't, be content it grew in yours. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
Don't go for looks; they can deceive. Don't go for wealth; even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart smile.
There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real!
May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy.
Always put yourself in others' shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too.
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives.
Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear.
The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.
When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.
Sometimes GOD breaks our spirit to save our soul. Sometimes, he breaks our heart to make us whole. Sometimes GOD sends us pain so we can be stronger. Sometimes GOD sends us failure so we can be humble. Sometimes GOD sends us illness so that we can better care ourselves. Sometimes GOD takes everything away from us so we can learn the VALUE of everything he gave us.
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.
Don't tell God how big your storm is, tell your storm how big your God is.
If He brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
If God is the DJ, then Life is the dance floor; Love is the rhythm, and You are the music.
Every problem we go through is like a question in a test given by God himself.
I would rather live as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than to live as if there isn't a God and die to find out there isn't.
