holy cow it's been forever!

"We do not see things as they are, 
we see things as we are."

"We decided what our lives are going to be, 
things happen to us, but it's our reactions that matter."

"The first step towards getting somewhere is 
to decide that you are not going to stay where you are."

"Don't stress the could haves, 
if it should have, it would have."

"Don't let the sadness of your past and the fear of 
your future ruin the happiness of your present."

"She turned her can't into cans, 
and her dreams into plans."

"Never cry at night over not being pretty enough.
Never tell yourself you'll never be good enough.
Because to someone, you are everything."

"Can't lose what you never had, can't keep what's
not yours, and can't hold onto something that does not what to stay."

"It was like the beginning of life and laughter;
it was the real meaning of the sun."

"Overcome that notion that you must be regular.
It robs you of the chance to be extraodrinary."

"We can walk if you'd like or spin in circles, 
I don't care. Either way I'm in love with where we're going."

"Slow down and realize what is it that makes you happy,
and what you want, not what makes everyone else happy,
and what everyone else wants for you."

"Our problem is that we hate change, but love it at the same time.
What we really want is for everything to stay the same, but get better."

"The higher you build the walls around your heart, 
the harder you fall when someone tears them down."

"Love is not about finding the right person, 
but creating a right relationship. It's especially not about 
how much love you have in the beginning, but how much
love you build until the end."

"I'm going to change a lot of things in 2011.
I'm going to start living for me, instead of everyone else.
I'm going to stop worrying about hurting people, 
and start worrying about how much I'm hurting myself.
This is a new beginning, and it's all about me."

"To accomplish great things, we must not only act, 
but also dream; not only plan, but also believe."

"Rule number one, don't sweat the small stuff.
Rule number two is, it's all small stuff."

"Why do people lie? It only drags out the inevitable.
In the end, it all hurts the same."

"All endings are also beginnings.
We just don't know it at the time."

"Never ignore a person who loves you, cares for you, 
and misses you. Because one day, you might wake from 
your sleep and realize that you lost the moon while counting the stars."

"Strength is a matter of the made-up mind."

"Successful leaders have the courage to take 
action, while others hesitate."

"To forgive is to set a prisoner free, 
and discover that the prisoner was you."

"The weal can never forgive.
Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong."

"Most of the important things in the world
have been accomplished by people who have kept
on trying, when there seemed to be no hope at all."

"The greatest test of courage on earth, 
is to bear defeat without losing heart."

"Goodbyes are meant for lonely people standing in the rain, 
and no matter where I go it's alwats pouring all the same."

"Life is short, too short to waste a single second
with anyone who doesn't appreciate or value you."

"Courage is going from failure to to failure without losing enthusuiasm."

"You have to make a decision, 
the kind that bends your future in a whole new direction."

"People always say to follow your heart, 
but what they don't tell you is that, 
just because you follow your heart, 
it doesn't mean there'll be a happy ending."

"People want to hear songs with the words their afraid to say."

"And all of it came down to one thing, 
love, or the lack of it. The chances we take, 
knowing no better, to fall or to stand back and hold
outselves in, protecting our hearts with the tightest of grips."

"When someone falls in love, it's usually with the wrong person.
And when they fall for the right one, it's always at the wrong time."
