~Life's Little Lessons~

Don't go for looks, they can deceive
Don't go for wealth even that fades away
Go for someone who makes you smile
There are moments in life
when you really miss someone
that you want to pick them up
from your dreams and hug them
Hope you dream of that someone

Dream what you want to dream
go where you want to go
be what you want to be
because you have only one life
and one chance to do all the things
you want in life

...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
And enough money to buy gifts

When one door of happiness closes, another opens
But we often took so long at the closed door
that we don't see the one which has been opened for us
The best kind of friend is the one
you could sit on a porch, swing with
never saying a word and then walk away feeling
like that was the best conversation you've 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
Always put yourself in other's shoes
If you feel that it hurts you
it probably does hurt the person too

A careless word may kindle a strife
A cruel word may wreck a life
A timely word may level stress
A lovely word may heal and bless
The beginning of love is to let those we love
be perfectly themselves and
not to twist them with our own image
otherwise we love only the reflection
of ourselves we find in them

The happiest people don't necessarily
have the best of everything
they just make the most of everything that comes along the way
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people
before meeting the right one so that
when we finally meet the right person
we should know how to be grateful for that gift

It takes a minute to have a crush on someone
an hour to like someone and a day to love someone
- but it takes a lifetime to forget someone
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

Love is when you take away the feeling
the passion, the romance
and find out you still care for that person
A sad thing about life is that when you meet
someone who means a lot to you
only to find out in the end that it was never
bound to be and you just have to let go

Love starts with a smile
develops with a kiss
and ends with a tear
Love comes to those who still hope
even though they've been disappointed
to those who still believe
even though they've been betrayed
need to love those who still love
even though they've been hurt before

It hurts to love someone
and not to be loved in return
but what is most painful is to love someone
and never finds the courage
to let the person know how you feel
The brightest future will always
be based on a forgotten past
You can't go on well in life until you let go
of your past failures and heartaches

Never say goodbye when you still want to try
Never give up when you still feel you can take it
Never say you don't love that person anymore
when you can't let go
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 hearts
but if it doesn't
be content it grew in yours

There are things you love to hear
but you would never hear it from
the person whom you would like to hear it from
but don't be deaf to hear it from the person
who says it with his heart
When you were born, you were crying
and everyone around you was smiling
Live your life to the fullest so that when you die
you're smiling and everyone around you is cry
