It hurts to love someone and not be loved in
return, but what is more painful is to love someone
and never find the courage to let that person know
how you feel.
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people
before meeting the right one so that when we

Love is when you take away the feeling, the
passion, and the romance in a relationship and find
out you still care for that person.
A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who
means a lot to you, only to find out in the end
that it was never meant to be and you just have to
When the door of happiness closes, another
opens, but oftentimes we look so long at the closed
door that we don't see the one which has been
opened for us.
The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit
on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and

conversation you've ever had.
It's true that we don't know what we've got
until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't
know what we've been missing until it arrives.
Giving someone all your love is never an
assurance that they'll love you back! Don't
expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in
their heart, but if it doesn't, be content it grew
There are things you'd love to hear that you
would never hear from the person whom you would
like to hear them from, but don't be so deaf as not
to hear it from the one who says it from his
Never say goodbye if you still want to
try--never give up if you still feel you can go
on--never say you don't love a person anymore if
you can't let go.
Love comes to those who still hope although
they've been disappointed, to those who still

who still love although they've been hurt
It takes only a minute to get a crush on
someone, an hour to like someone and a day to love
someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget
Don't go for looks; they can deceive.
Don't go for wealth; even that fades away. Go
for someone who makes you smile because it takes
only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.
There are moments in life when you miss someone
so much that you just want to pick them from your
dreams and hug them for real.
Dream what you want to dream, go where you want

only one life and one chance to do all the things
you want to do.
May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,
enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to
keep you human, and enough hope to make you
Always put yourself in others' shoes. If you

A careless word may kindle strife; a cruel word
may wreck a life; a timely word may level stress; a
loving word may heal and bless.
The beginning of love is to let those we love be
just themselves and not twist them with our own
image; otherwise, we love only the reflection of
ourselves we find in them.
The happiest of people don't necessarily have

everything that comes along their way.
Happiness lies for those who cry, those who
hurt, those who have searched and those who have
tried, for only they can appreciate the importance
of people who have touched their lives.
Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and
ends with a tear.
The brightest future will always be based on a
forgotten past; you can't go on well in life until
you let go of your past failures and
When you were born, you were crying and everyone
around you was smiling. Live your life so
that when you die, you're the one who is smiling
and everyone around you is crying.
