“I love you,
Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.
I love you,
Not only for what
You have made of yourself,
But for what
You are making of me.
I love you
For the part of me
That you bring out;
I love you
For putting your hand
Into my heaped-up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things
That you can’t help
Dimly seeing there,
And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find.
I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple;
Out of the works
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.
I love you
Because you have done
More than any creed
Could have done
To make me good
And more than any fate
Could have done
To make me happy.
You have done it
Without a touch,
Without a word,
Without a sign.
You have done it
By being yourself.
Perhaps that is what
Being a friend means,
After all.” - Roy Croft

Live your life and risk it all
take some chances, take the fall
take your time, no need to hurry
have some fun, and never worry
If you ever feel like you wanna die,
think of all those things that make you smile
&& Live for those things. =)
Dance like no one’s watching
Love like you’ll never hurt,
Sing like no one’s listening
Live like it’s heaven on Earth.
Time is precious
and its slipping away
so cherish every moment
day after day
You have to go through the worst to get to the best
Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.
Careful with that light at the end of the tunnel, it might be another train coming.
I didn’t lose my mind, I sold it on ebay.
Never go to bed angry, stay awake and plot your revenge.
If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?
When I want your opinion, I’ll remove the duct tape.

Love is the sweetest of dreams,
& the worst of nightmares.
Confidence comes not from always being right, but from not fearing to be wrong.

Life LAUGHS, life cries.
Life gives UP and life tries,
but life looks different
through EVERYONE’S eyes

2. Even if you're in the gutter, you have the option of looking at the stars. --Wayne Dyer
