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.
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 every had.
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.
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
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!
Dream what you want to dream; go where you

because you have only one life and one
chance to do all the things you want to do.
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

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
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
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
Please send this message to those people who mean something to you, to those who have touched your
life in one way or another, to those who make you smile when you really need it, to those that make you see the brighter side of things when you are
really down, to those who you want to let them
know that you appreciate their friendship. And if you don't, don't worry, nothing bad will happen
