The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with,
never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best
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 in yours. 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 someone.

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. Find the one that makes your heart smile. 

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you
strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy. 

Always put yourself in others' shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it
probably hurts the other person, too

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they
just make the most of 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. 

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.
