...a gentle love, a tender love, a passionate love with big plans, an everyday love with quiet moments, a love born of trust and faith -a together forever love.
A butterfly measures not in minutes, but in moments.
"A flame burns bright
and quick, it hungers
to leap forward and become.
It is art."
Anger destroys ones self
Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting.
Change is not made without inconvenience, even from worse to better.
Don't sweat the small stuff
Few women have ever been able to resist the temptation to try on a hat and discover in the mirror a person they never suspected was there. A hat alters the image we have of ourselves, and the image others see as well. For the hours we wear it, it brings out different dimension in our personality, much as a costume aids an actress in her role.
Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
Happiness is not a destination. It is a method of life.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.
He who has hope has everything
I have no sense of direction, I get lost in your eyes.
I might repeat to myself, slowly and soothingly, a list of quotations beautiful from minds profound; if I can remember any of the damn things!
"I'm a victim of my own insides" Janis Joplin
"I've cried a million tears before,
and tried to stop each one.
But the tears keep burning in my eyes,
and I fear they've just begun."
I've learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.
"If i could rewind,
watch all my life,
just past me by,
i would see you
if i could rewind,
i would take back the lies
and all of those times i hurt you."
In solitude we are least alone.
It is the desperate traveler who teaches us the most profound lesson and affords us the most exquisite thrills. She touches us with her boldness and vulnerability, for her sole preparation is the fierce determination to leave where she is, and her only destination is somewhere other than where she has been.
"It's not her I miss; It's the feeling she gave me. The feeling only some people have felt,but have lost." (Love in the 20s.)
"Leave more for others to follow...
then footprints in the water."
Love is as strong as death; its jealousy as unyielding as the grave. It burns like a blazing fire; like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love, rivers cannot wash it away.
Love is not about finding the right person, but creating a right relationship. It's not about how much love you have in the beginning but how much love you build till the end.
Mediocrity doesn't mean average intelligence, it means an average intelligence that resents and envies its betters
Parting is such sweet sorrow.
Remember no one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
"The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference."
The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears.
The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here.
What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
"Words are more than merely words...for they are what we feel everyday"
Copyright Tracie Gambino 2001
Yes, anger and jealousy are human emotions. It's what you do with those emotions that make you who you are.
"You can't reason with your heart; it has its own laws, and thumps about things which the intellect scorns".
. . .Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
A Child's Hand
THERE is nothing in the world
that will make you feel so GRAND
As the wee gentle TUG
of a little child's HAND.
Their LITTLE chubby fingers and
FRAGILE tender touch
Brings JOY to all the willing
hearts who LOVE them so much.
A glad heart makes a cheerful countenance. -
A hug is like a boomerang- you get it back right away.
A man that could not respect the choice of others is a Bitter .. low grade human.. who could not accepted his fate from the start.....doomed loser ... best to wake up and Move on....tomorrow waits ....
A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world.
A room without books is like a body without a soul.
all my regret will wash away somehow
And then you take that love you made, and stick it into some...
Someone else's heart,
Pumping someone else's blood.
Walking arm in arm,
You hope it don't get harmed...
Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.
Asking the right questions, instead of asking for the right answers, allows us to know the function rather than the effect of our choices
Be cheerful - the adversity that worries us most is that which never arrives.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, & those who matter don't mind.
beauty is not in how it looks; it is in how you look at it
BITTERNESS brings out the Worse in You...it is best to accept your fate and MOVE-ON.
Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another.
But you really shouldn't be frightened of Death. He's very approachable, really, not at all aloof, never passes by on the other side of the road simply because he's not been introduced. He makes no distinction of class...a flea-bitten rat or a beautiful princess, it's all the same to Death.
Defeat is simply a signal to press onward.
Discontent is the first necessity of progress.
Do the thing you fear to do and keep on doing it...that is the quickest and surest way ever yet discovered to conquer fear.
Doing an injury puts you below your enemy
Revenging one makes you but even with him;
Forgiving it sets you above him.
Don't compromise yourself...you are all you've got.
Don't worry about things that you have no control over, because you have no control over them. Don't worry about things that you have control over, because you have control over them.
El amor semeja un árbol: se inclina por su propio peso, arraiga profundamente en todo nuestro ser y a veces sigue verdeciendo en las ruinas de un corazón.
Every soul is a circus...
Failure seldom stops you; what stops you is the fear of failure.
Fear Can Hold You Prisoner. Hope Can Set You Free
Fear is that little dark-room where negatives are developed.
Flowers may fade, but fragrant memory lingers
For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
For of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: 'It might have been!'
Forgive for your own inner peace, not for their peace of mind.
friends can be lost but never enemies.
From the moment I saw you, my heart opened up to even more love.
Giving is the highest expression of our power.
God appoints our graces to be nurses to other men's weaknesses.
God grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference.
Grace is in garments, in movements, in manners; beauty in the nude, and in forms. This is true of bodies; but when we speak of feelings, beauty is in their spirituality, and grace in their moderation.
Guilt Trips: Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Happiness enters our lives through doors we don't even remember leaving open.
Something to do
Something to love
Something to hope for.
Happiness is a bowl of cherries and a book of poetry under a shade tree.
Happiness is a habit; cultivate it!
Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it will elude you. But if you turn your attention to other things, it comes softly and sits on your shoulder.
Henry David Thoreau
Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come & sit softly on your shoulder...
Happiness is like honey- you can spread it all around, but some will still stick to you!!
Happiness is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to deal with it.
Happiness is what happens to us as we try to make someone else happy.
Happy people are the fizz in the soda of life.
Happy people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
they just make the most of everything that comes along their
He that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.
Heritage is an omnibus in which all our ancestors ride, and every once in a while, one of them puts his head out the window and embarrsaases all the rest of us.
High is the way,
but our eyes are upon the ground.
You are the light and the way.
They'll only read about.
I only pray heaven knows,
when to lift you out.
How can it mean anything to me,
if I really don't feel a thing at all?
Hugging someone tells you a lot about them.
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tommorow is another day and I believe in miracles." ~ Audrey Hepburn
I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do!. That is character.
I do not condone free will, I suffer it
I don't care how much you know until I know how much you care.
I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library.
I have not yet begun to fight.
--John Paul Jones
I hope she knows,
That the beautiful reflection on the mirror,
Isn't’t as pretty on the inside
I love tranquil solitude and such society as is quiet, wise, and good.
I pray Thee, O God, that I may be beautiful within.
I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things... I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind.
I'm not judging people, I'm judging their actions. It's the same type of distinction that I try to apply to myself, to judge, but not be judgmental.
I'm still just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.
I'm the girl who laughs out loud in the middle of silence about something that happened the day before.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
If I knew my heart would be broken today, I would've stayed in bed.
if it takes great courage to stand and fight for something... sometimes it takes even greater courage to just walk away and leave things behind...
If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever.
If you've photographing in colour you show the colour of their clothes - if you use black and white, you will show the colour of their soul.
Immature love says: "I love you because I need you." Mature love says "I need you because I love you."
In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don't.
In Life, there are no problems, there are just solutions waiting to be found.
It is nice to be important, but it is more important to be nice.
It took me a long time to figure out that it's not where you are that counts in life; it's the memories that you make there.
It was a coldest day in December
A day I always will remember
I looked into your eyes
And faced my deepest fear
I had drifted to far
Far from you my dear...
So how could I, turn away from the one I love.
It's the simple joys, the simple pleasures
the heart remembers and dearly treasures.
Its important to measure your words before you speak them
‘gaaliyaan’ have more value attached to them than your pleasantries as they speak for your company and relationships you keep
so please do not strew them around
Kind words are the music of the world.
Kissing you at the break of dawn...holding your hands till sunset...whispering love on an enchanted evening. My life can only be this beautiful when I am with you...Heart and Soul
Learn how to feel joy.
Leash my anger, calm my words.
Speak in love and do no hurt.
Life IS pain...anyone who says differently is selling something.
Life is too short to nurse animosities or register wrongs
live the life you loved, love the life you lived
Live, love, laugh and be happy.
Love - A pursuit which is second only to the longing for God.
Love begets Love...you will always be somebody Else's choice...there will always be a Love meant for only You....Don't force Love that was never meant to be...
Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread: remade all the time, made new.
Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.
Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.
Love is friendship set on fire.
Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties.
Love is the feeling you feel when you feel you are feeling a feeling you feel you've never felt before!
Love me in full being.
Love starts with a smile,
Grows with a kiss,
Ends with a tear.
Loving is not just looking at each other, it's looking in the same direction.

To Readers and Staff
It recently came to my attention after reading a gender based version of a quote I created a couple years ago, that it had become quite popular. However upon checking this site as well as other, I realized not only that some have used it for their own agenda, but none had given credit where due. So for the record, the quote “Never let someone be your priority, While you remain their option.” In fact, was written to a woman by a man.
A man in the northwest who goes by the nickname “Eye”. So if your going to use my quote, please don’t use it for gender based bias. And please give credit w...
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Most folks are about as happy as they make their minds to be.
Most people go through life dreading they'll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma, they've already passed all their tests in life, they're Aristocrats.
Moving-on can never be easy...it takes sometime to heal...till the heart agrees to set you free and love again. Remember the pain and all the sad refrain...Pray and learn ... Love is everywhere and waiting
My dear brothers, take not of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.
No matter how bad you think you have it, someone has it worse
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
No room in my life for stupid
No symphony orchestra ever played music like a two-year-old girl laughing with a puppy.
Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission!
Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.
Nothing is so strong as gentleness and nothing is so gentle as real strength.
Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.
Nothing is there more friendly to a man than a friend in need.
One cannot tell what passes through the heart of a man by the look on his face.
One gentle and affectionate soul in a family sweetens and softens all its members.
Only a life lived for others is the life worthwhile.
Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.
Our heritage and ideals, our code and standards – the things we live by and teach our children – are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings.
Pain makes man think. Thought makes man wise. Wisdom makes life endurable.
Pale is the joy that guilty pleasures bring.
People are culturally unique through the exhibition of external obvious differences, genetically they are the same, therefore, identical.
People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.
Quarrels never could last long
If on one side were all the wrong.
Show me a someone not full of herself and I'll show you a hungry person.
SoMeDaY YoU WiLl Be SoRrY, SoMeDaY WhEn YoU'rE FrEe, MeMoRiEs WiLl ReMiNd YoU, ThAt We WeRe MeAnT To Be*
Meeting you was fate,Be coming ur friend was a choice, but falling in love with u was beyond my control
*Friends last forever, but Boyfriends only last you so long!*
hE LuVz mE, He lOvEs mE NOt, I DONT CARE....i aM HoT, No MaKe uP, nO rUlEs, I GoT Da tOoLS, GOT Me?
Kisses spread germs and germs are hated.....so kiss me baby!! I'm vacinated!!!!!!!!!
"Men kick friendship around like a football and it doesn't seem to crack. Women treat it like glass and it falls to pieces"
You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in people, than you can in two years...
Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.
Sticks and stones may break bones, but lies will break a heart.
Take the utmost trouble to find the right thing to say, and then say it with the utmost levity.
The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise, we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
The buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity, and this passion is the only thing that raises us above the beats that perish.
The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.
The delight of a child is contagious.
The eye is meant to see things. The soul is here for its own joy
The first time I saw you, I knew it was true, that I'd love you forever, and that's what I'll do. You don't know what you do to me, you don't have a clue, you don't know what it's like to be, me looking at you.
The Grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
The grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love and something to hope for.
the greatest joys are found in beautiful moments spent with those we love
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
The hardest thing is to give your heart to someone when they're not yours to keep.
The heart survived the ruin past of a cursed fate...believing a young promise, dreaming my life away just by remembering your smile ...finding Love caressing me at dawn to forever..HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MY DARLING!!!
The love we give away is never gone...it is kept in the hearts of others.
The payola in old age is to be able to draw on the thousands of deposits of happiness that are stored in your bank account of memories.
The person who can bring the spirit of laughter into a room is indeed blessed.
The purpose of life is not to be happy - but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all.
The saddest thing in the world, is loving someone who used to love you.
The tears for myself may be the prism needed to rediscover the rainbow that is me.
The tragedy is not that things are broken. The tragedy is that they are not mended again.
There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life; MUSIC & CATS.
There never has been, nor will there ever be, anything quite so special as the love between a mother and a son.
There will always be a certain sadness in one's heart ..where lies broken dreams and wasted affection....tomorrow can't give a promise of togetherness...nor can the tears kept from falling...you walk through the rain with that certain sadness...and it will silently stay.
They don't know it yet, but we are the LUCKY ones.
They seemed to come suddenly upon happiness as if they had surprised a butterfly in the winter woods...
This I know for sure...you'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast-and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt-because every sixty seconds you spend upset, is a minute of happiness you'll never get back
Times when sunsets never ends and the rain shyly hid in the cloud like hope ...when the air suffocates and wind slaps me with agony...You came with a rainbow, removed all curse and said: " Don't Worry Everything will be alright, I'm in your life Now!"...and I never cried again.
To fear is one thing. To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another.
Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists.... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
TODAY IS THE TOMMOROW YOU WORRIED ABOUT YESTERDAY
AND ALL IS WELL
Trust yourself - then you will know how to live.
Violence is the highest degree of desperation.
watch how you treat the next person your actions are a reflection of your self image.
We can only learn to love by giving.
We don't love the people we love because they are perfect. We love them because they are.
We find rest in those we love, and we provide a resting place in ourselves for those who love us.
We see the world as we are, not as it is.
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
We've had bad luck with our kids - they've all grown up.
What can be said in a hundred words could be better express in a single touch..or a single smile ..
What consumes your thoughts, consumes your mind; what consumes your mind, consumes your life.
What I am is good enough if I would only be it openly.
What is a friend?
A single soul dwelling in two bodies.
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
When a Love is chosen by the heart...we must respect it...It doesn't matter Who or What or When or where....All that matters is the feelings that could never be tried by the test of time....A love that God gave to cherish till forever.
When I am able to resist the temptation to judge others,
I can see them as teachers of forgiveness in my life,
Reminding me that I can only have peace of mind
When I forgive rather than judge.
When the going gets tough, never be afraid to stand up and fight.
With the right hat, nothing else matters.
Within your heart, keep one still,
Secret spot where one might go.
Without you, I am completely incomplete.
Words from the heart speak to the heart.
Worry is a misuse of the imagination.
Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, but only saps today of its strength.
Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, but only saps today of its strength.
You are more than a human being, you are a human becoming.
You brought immeasurable happiness and a life more beautiful than a dream.
You can love only in proportion to your capacity for independence.
You have to go through hell in order to reach heaven
you know what sad about love?it's when you happen to know that there's just no hope for you being together,,, yet you still pray to make it work...it's when your mind says let go but your heart says hold on,,,it's when you dream of her almost every night only to wake up in the morning with tears in your eyes,,, and the most of all,,, it's when no matter how you try to forget her you just can't,,, cause of the fact that you love her and you just don't know why,,,:(
You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.
Your Love might be the greatest ...point is the one you offered it to can't love you back...because it belongs to another heart she thinks is Greater that Yours... ACCEPTANCE is REWARDING.
Your smile makes my heart bounce.
“Envy is a symptom of lack of appreciation of our own uniqueness and self worth. Each of us has something to give that no one else has.”
“Envy is the art of counting the other fellow's blessings instead of your own.”
“Happiness isn't something you experience; it's something you remember.”Oscar Levant
“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are...
