Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.
Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
The unexamined life is not worth living.
Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.
Don't be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.
Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create.
A woman has to live her life, or live to repent not having lived it.
If you want to forget something or someone, never hate it, or never hate him/her. Everything and everyone that you hate is engraved upon your heart; if you want to let go of something, if you want to forget, you cannot hate.
It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow, and transform.
If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.
More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgment. More blessed, less stressed. More love, less hate.
Live to the point of tears.
Well, now If little by little you stop loving me I shall stop loving you Little by little If suddenly you forget me Do not look for me For I shall already have forgotten you If you think it long and mad the wind of banners that passes through my life And you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots Remember That on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms And my roots will set off to seek another land
Take responsibility of your own happiness, never put it in other people’s hands.
Be the reason someone smiles. Be the reason someone feels loved and believes in the goodness in people.
Do what is right, not what is easy nor what is popular.
Accept yourself, love yourself, and keep moving forward. If you want to fly, you have to give up what weighs you down.
Live the Life of Your Dreams: Be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of others.
The past is a place of reference, not a place of residence; the past is a place of learning, not a place of living.
I regret that it takes a life to learn how to live.
