Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.
Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one.
When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.
Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.
I like the night. Without the dark, we'd never see the stars.
It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.
I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.
If you're reading this...
Congratulations, you're alive.
If that's not something to smile about,
then I don't know what is.
The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.
You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect.
But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.
If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him.
Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.
The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering 'it will be happier'...
