Sanity and happiness are an impossible combination.
Mark Twain
 
 
 
 
I think part of me was born loving you.
Shiloh Walker
 
 
 
 
For many, love is a two-sided coin. It can strengthen or stifle, expand or enfeeble, perfect or pauperize. When love is returned, we soar. We are taken to heights unseen, where it delights, invigorates, and beautifies. When love is spurned, we feel crippled, disconsolate, and bereaved.
Colleen Houck
 
 
 
 
It’s no trick loving somebody at their best. Love is loving them at their worst.
Tom Stoppard
 
 
 
 
People think dreams aren’t real just because they aren’t made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.
Neil Gaiman
 
 
 
 
It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.
George Harrison
 
 
 
 
I guess by now I should know enough about loss to realize that you never really stop missing someone – you just learn to live around the huge gaping hole of their absence.
Alyson Noel, Evermore

 
 
 
 
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
Golda Meir
 
 
 
 
Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you don’t believe it. Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future. Be brave; be strong; take your pills. Exercise because it’s good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. Eat when food itself disgusts you. Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason.
Andrew Solomon,
The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression

Quotes December 13, 2017

Do a deed of simple kindness: though its end you may not see, it may reach, like widening ripples, down a long eternity.
Joseph Norris
 
 
 
 
“Kindness is a mark of faith; whoever is not, has no faith.”
Mohammed
 
 
 
 
“For beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness.”
Audrey Hepburn
 
 
 
 
“Hate breeds hate. Love destroys hate. This is the law.”
Buddha
 
 
 
 
There is some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for.
J. R. R. Tolkien,
The Two Towers
 
 
 
 
There is a light somewhere. It may not be much light but it beats the darkness.
Charles Buckowski
 
 
 
 
It’s chaos. Be kind.
Michelle McNamara
 
 
 
 
Wherever love is present, fear is a stranger.
Kyle Gray
 
 
 
 
Kindness. What a simple way to tell another struggling soul that there is love to be found in this world.
a.a.malee

Claudia Hall Christian
 
 
 
 
Be kind to unkind people – they need it the most.
Ashleigh Brilliant
 
 
 
 
You may never have proof of your importance but you are more important than you think. There are always those who couldn’t do without you. The rub is that you don’t always know who.
Robert Fulghum
 
 
 
 
So, I guess we are who we are for alot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
 
 
 
 
Strength comes from struggle. When you learn to see your struggles as opportunities to become stronger, better, wiser, then your thinking shifts from “I can’t do this” to “I must do this.”
Toni Sorenson
 
 
 
 
These days grief seems like walking on a frozen river; most of the time he feels safe enough, but there is always that danger that he will plunge through.
David Nicholls, One Day
 
 
 
 
When you love someone, truly love them, you lay your heart open to them. You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else, and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt – you literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut deepest and most painfully on your heart and soul. And when they do strike, it’s crippling – like having your heart carved out.
Sherrilyn Kenyon

 
 
 
 
The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
 
 
 
 

We live in a world where we rarely speak out and when someone does, often nobody is there to listen.
Jaycee Dugard, A Stolen Life
