When things go bad, remember its just a chapter. Turn the page, never close the book.

 If you can't be a pencil to write someone's happiness,
then try to be an eraser to remove their sadness.

Grateful for every scar,  some pages turned,
some bridges burned,  but there were lessons learned.
Everybody has a chapter they don't read out loud.
Every  heart  hides  many  wounds  that  never  bleed.
Everyone  has  untold  stories  of  pain  and  sadness.
Grief is like the ocean;  it comes on waves ebbing and flowing.
Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming.
All we can do is learn to swim.


Don't make decisions when you're angry. Don't make promises when you're happy.


The world is a mixture of people.
We just need to know
which hand to shake and which hand to hold.
The shoe that fits one person pinches another;
there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.

Sometimes  I  wish  I  could
change some things that happened in the past;
but  the rear view mirror is so small and the windshield is so big.

Your eyes are placed in the front
because it is more important to look ahead than to look back.
Where  you  are  headed
is much more important than what you've left behind.

Drive  carefully  on  this  road  called  "
because people will  switch lanes  on you without a signal.


Some people will never like you because
your spirit irritates their demons.
Be careful who you let on your ship, because some people will
sink the whole ship just because they can't be the captain.
Don't make excuses for horrible people.
You can't put a flower in an
axxhole and call it a vase.
You cannot expect a person to behave in a manner
that  is  not  in  their  character.
It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.
Don't worry about people who aren't happy for you.
They probably aren't happy for themselves either.

Only people who aren't happy with themselves are mean to others.


Some people create their own storms, then get upset when it rains.
Some of the most miserable people are
those who only care about themselves,
understand only their own troubles,
and see only their own perspective.
People will never truly understand something until it happens to them.
Never argue with stupid people; they will drag you down to their level
and then beat you up with experience.
The largest fish in the river grew to its size,
not because of its strength,
but  because it learned not to bite a baited hook.

Every human bleeds the same color.
A lot of things broke my heart but fixed my vision.
When people say they cannot see anything good in you.

Hug them and say life is difficult for the blind.
Don't seek revenge. The rotten fruits will fall by themselves.
Holding a grudge does't make you strong;  it makes you bitter.
Forgiving doesn't make you weak it sets you free.
Life is too short for long-term grudges.


Don't pour your sunshine into someone
who doesn't think of you as their sky.
Don't break a bird's wings and then tell it to fly.
Don't break a heart and then tell it to love.
Don't break a soul and then tell it to be happy.
Don't see the worst in a person and
expect them to see the best in you.
Don't judge people and expect them to stand by your side.
Don't play with fire and expect to stay perfectly safe.
Life is about giving and taking.
You cannot expect to give bad and receive good.
You cannot expect to give good and receive bad.

Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.

We were born to be real, not to be perfect.
I  don't regret the things I did wrong.
I  regret the good things I did for the wrong people.
I do not fear being alone,
I fear being in a room full of people I cannot trust.

Don't depend too much on anyone in this world because
even your own shadow leaves you when you are in darkness.
Let your light shine so brightly that
others can see their way out of the dark.


It won't be easy having a kind heart in a cruel world.
Some  people  come  into  our  lives  as  blessings.
Some  come  into  our  lives  as  lessons.
Tables turn, bridges burn, and we live and learn.
If respect is no longer being served, leave the table.

People walk out of your life, but it's not the end of your story.
It's  just  the  end  of  their  part  in  your  story.

Those  people  who  treat  you  wrong.
Be  sure  you  thank  them  for  making  you 

Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness,
but  because you deserve peace.


Appreciate good people. They are hard to come by.
