The truth is the seventy or eighty years that you’re given isn’t long enough to do the things you’re supposed to do. Sure, you’re gonna hit a few bumps along the way, but you’ve got to pick yourself up and move on. Life is unpredictable and things might not always work out the way you want them to, but that’s no reason to give up. You’re here for a reason and someday when you’re not expecting it, you’re going to discover your reason for being here. And when that does happen, your life will never be the same again.”

The rest of your life is a long time and the rest of your life starts right now.” -Haley James

We don’t have to battle against the darkness when all we need to do is turn on the light.” -Andrea Moritz

My whole life I’ve been telling myself, “Don’t be afraid.”

And it’s only now that I’m realizing how stupid that is. Don’t be afraid. Like saying, “don’t move out of the way when someone tries to punch you” or “don’t flinch at the heat of a fire” or “don’t blink.” Don’t be human.

Live anyway.

But I don’t think you’re going to have a life like that, and I think you’ll be the better for it. The difficult thing is to not be overwhelmed by the bad patches. You must not let them defeat you. You must see them as a gift—a cruel gift, but a gift nonetheless.” -Peter Cameron

“In order to get it all you must be willing to give it all.” -Tony Gaskins

It’s not about pride and it’s not about how you appear, and it’s not obsessing or dwelling on the past. Letting go isn’t blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts, and doesn’t leave emptiness, hurt, or sadness. It’s not about giving in or giving up. Letting go isn’t about loss and it’s not about defeat. To let go is to cherish the memories, to overcome and move on. Letting go is learning and experiencing and growing. To let go is to be thankful for the experiences that made you laugh, made you cry, and made you grow. It’s about all that you have, all that you had, and all that you will soon gain. Letting go is having the courage to accept change, and the strength to keep moving.”

“You can’t really begin to appreciate life until it has knocked you down a few times. You can’t really begin to appreciate love until your heart has been broken.

It is completely normal to fear failure, to fear rejection, to fear the future, but it should never stop you from accomplishing a dream, making a friend, or confessing your love. Nothing is for certain and anything can happen. Isn’t that what makes life exciting? Not knowing what will happen next and even though people will tell you it is impossible, will point and laugh at your ways, and will crush your heart over and over again, you will continue to chase your dreams, make as many friends as possible, and pray that when you do find that special someone, they will blush for a moment, twiddle their thumbs, and look into your eyes and say, “I love you too.”

Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.” -Robert Pattinson

It is as if they are showing you the way.” -Donald Miller

“Go to your fears, sit with them, stare at them. Your fears are your friend, their only job is to show you undeveloped parts of yourself that you need to cultivate to live a happy life.

“You can’t run away from all your problems, sometimes you just have to face them.”

 ahead of me, I think about all the awesome people I will 
meet, I think about all the adventures, about love,
 about all the places I have yet to discover.
 In that moment, I believe I will be happy one day. I know happiness is out there. I have hope.”

“We sometimes let people get the best of us, destroy us, and change our opinions on what we believe is true. Only you know what is right for yourself. You have the power, you make the choices and you learn. Each experience we go through in life is a lesson to be learned. We all make mistakes. Why is that so hard for some to understand? No one should be judged by the mistakes they have made.”

“Life doesn’t always go according to plan. Sometimes heading in a new direction can be scary until you realize you’re headed toward a new and exciting destination.” -Susan Gale

“You are the books you read the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, the conversations you engage in. You are what you take from these. You are the sound of the ocean, the breath of fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner. You are a collective of every experience you have had in your life. You are every single second of every single day. So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and let the colours fill your mind.”

“When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.” -Donald Miller

“Most of the things you worry about never happen.”

“A woman would be much better off if she could distinguish the difference between a man that flatters her and a man that compliments her, a man that spends money on her and a man that invests in her, a man that views her as property and a man that views her properly, a man that lusts after her and a man that loves her, a man that believes he is God’s gift to women and a man that remembers a woman is God’s gift to man. Know your self worth; God doesn’t make junk. He makes jewels.”

“It’s a lot easier to be lost than found. It’s the reason we’re always searching and rarely discovered. So many locks, not enough keys.”

“There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads. Afraid. Confused. Without a roadmap. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days. Of course, when faced with the unknown, most of us prefer to turn around and go back. But once in a while people push on to something better. Something found just beyond the pain of going it alone. And just beyond the bravery and courage it takes to let someone in. Or to give someone a second chance. Something beyond the quiet persistence of a dream. Because it’s only when you’re tested, that you truly discover who you are. And it’s only when you’re tested, that you discover who you can be. The person you want to be does exist. Somewhere on the otherside of hard work and faith and belief … and beyond the heartache and fear of what lies ahead.” -OTH

“Sometimes it looks like everything is falling apart and all you do fails, but you have to stay strong. Night is always darkest before the dawn and your life is just the same – the hard times will pass, everything will get better and the sun will shine brighter than ever.”

“One of the hardest decisions you’ll ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder.” -unknown

“Fearing what ‘could’ be will only rob you of what ‘is’. Embrace today and accept tomorrow. Living in fear is not living at all.

Trust in the Lord and you’ll get where you need to be.” -Melissa Bailey

“A foolish person will be known by several things: Anger without cause, speech without thought, change without progress, inquiry without reason, thought without action, and dishonesty without conscience.”

“Addiction. It’s something we all go through. We love something so much, we end up using it all the time. But at the same time, it’s killing us. It tears us down in side, until we can hardly breathe. It brings us to rock bottom. But in the end? We can’t give it up. Because no matter how much pain it causes us, the few moments of pleasure are always worth it.”

“For those who have lost any of their loved ones, or friends. As a matter of fact, nobody ever dies. Because they’re gonna live inside everybody who ever knew them. Everyone they ever touched, no matter how little, and the people who love them, their families and friends, they’re never gonna stop thinking about them or talking about them. They’re never gonna die because they were loved and they loved. They’re going to live forever in your heart, as death doesn’t put an end to love.” -unknown

“It’s one of those things that people say, you can’t move on until you let go of the past. Letting go is the easy part, it’s the moving on that’s painful. So sometimes we fight it, try and keep things the same. Things can’t stay the same though. At some point, you just have to let go. Move on. Because no matter how painful it is, it’s the only way we grow.” -Grey’s Anatomy

“Too often, the thing you want most is the one thing you can’t have. Desire leaves us heartbroken, it wears us out. Desire can wreck your life. But as tough as wanting something can be; the people who suffer the most, are those who don’t know what they want.”

“Remember, there are no real failures in life, only results. There are no true tragedies only lessons. And there really are no problems only opportunities waiting to be recognized as solutions by the person of wisdom.”

“In the end, some of your greatest pains become your greatest strengths.” -Drew Barrymore

“When two people really care about each other. They will always look for a way to make it work, no matter how hard it is.” -unknown

“Love is stronger than differences. We all live on the same planet. We walk on the same earth. We breathe the same air. No matter where I was born, no matter what color skin I have or what religion I was raised to believe in, everything and everyone is connected to this one life.
