Food for Thought

-Good times are even better when they're shared.
-A good long talk can cure almost anything.
-Everyone needs someone with whom to share her secrets.
-Listening is just as important as talking.
-An understanding friend is better than a therapist- cheaper too!
-Laughter makes the world a happier place.
-Friends are like wine; they get better with age.
-A friend is someone who believes in you even when you have ceased to believe in yourself.
-Sometimes you just need a shoulder to cry on.
-Gems may be precious, but friendship is priceless.
-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!
-When the door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we don’t see the one that has been opened for us.
-Don’t go for looks, they can deceive. Don’t go for wealth, for even that can pass away. Go for someone who makes you smile, because it only takes a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one who makes your heart smile.
-Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you only have 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 keep you happy.
-The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes their way.
-The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can’t go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.
-When you were born, you were crying and everyone else was smiling. Live your life so that, at the end, you’re the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.
-I love you, not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you.
-No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is won't make you cry.
-Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
-A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.
-The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can't have them.
-Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.
-To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.
-Don't waste your time on a man/woman who isn't willing to waste their time on you.
-Maybe we're supposed to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful.
-Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened.
-There are always going to be people that hurt you, so what you have to do is keep on trusting and just be more careful about who you trust next time around.
-Make yourself a better person and know who you are before you try to know someone else and expect them to know you.
-Don't try so hard. The best things come when you least expect them to.
-Whatever happens, happens for a reason.
-Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.
-Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
-Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
-Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
-If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
-If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
-It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
-Never buy a car you can't push.
-Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you don't have a leg to stand on.
-Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
-The early worm gets eaten by the bird, so sleep late.
-When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
-Birthdays are good for you; the more you have, the longer you live.
-You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
-Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
-Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened.
-We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors but they all have to learn to live in the same box.
-A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
-Happiness comes through doors you didn't even know you left open.
-“Be who you are, say how you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” ~Dr. Seuss
-“A friend will visit you in jail. A good friend will bail you out of jail. A best friend will be sitting beside you in jail laughing hysterically and saying, “That was AWESOME!””
-“A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even though he knows you are slightly cracked.”
-“When you love someone, all your saved- up wishes start coming out.” ~Elizabeth Bowen
-“There are two ways you can live. You can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.” ~Albert Einstein
