“Anything at all is possible. Some things are unlikely. Some things will never happen. But they always could, at any time.”

“By judging others, you make yourself easy to judge.”

“Even if you think you’re doing well and have it all figured out, there is a voice you will always inevitably hear at some point which nags at you and says “but wait…” Don’t ever dismiss it, listen to what it has to say. Life will never be close enough to perfect, and listening to that voice means stepping outside of yourself and considering your own wrongdoings and flaws.”

“How good something is should never be determined by its cost, designer, origin, or its perceived value by others.”

“I don’t possess these thoughts I have — they possess me. I don’t possess these feelings I have — They obsess me.”

“I think there were times when I was so afraid of losing you that I forgot I even had you at all.”

“If somebody never gets enough of you, they will always want more.”

“If you’re going to do something, strive to do it better than anyone else. Do it all the way. If you’re going to half-ass it, why bother?”

“It may be a man’s world, but men are easily controlled by women.”

“It’s hardly ever that I am hurt by something in only one dimension.”

“It’s okay to disagree with the thoughts or opinions expressed by other people. That doesn’t give you the right to deny any sense they might make. Nor does it give you a right to accuse someone of poorly expressing their beliefs just because you don’t like what they are saying. Learn to recognize good writing when you read it, even if it means overcoming your pride and opening your mind beyond what is comfortable.”

“It’s so hard to find the place somewhere in the middle of the best and worst I’ve felt.”

“Just remember that those who feel profoundly depressed are those whose happiness is likewise intense. What’s so wrong with that?”

“Most of the pain we feel is nothing more than a story that needs telling”

“My sadness is beautiful. It infuses everything I do. It is at the core of my identity and always has been, just as happiness is in some people. I refuse to be told that it’s a flaw. I will not mute it with medications for the sake of society. I will hold it close to me and celebrate it rightfully while the rest of the world fails to see it for what it is and it will be their loss.”

“Never do anything that you can’t admit doing, because if you are that ashamed of whatever it is, it’s probably wrong.”

“Never try to do anything that is outside of who you are. A forced smile is a sign of what feels wrong in your heart, so recognize it when it happens. Living a lie will reduce you to one.”

“No one truly knows what they will do in a certain situation until they are actually in it. It’s very easy to judge someone else’s actions by what you assume your own would be, if you were in their shoes. But we only know what we THINK we would do, not what we WOULD do.”

“People accuse me of falling in love easily. It just means that I’m able to see the beauty in most of the people who cross paths with me and I appreciate it for what it is and also for what it isn’t. Love is imperfect. Falling for someone’s flaws is just as necessary as falling for their strengths. And people like myself, who fall into love easily, are sometimes the loneliest souls around at the end of the day.”

“People leave imprints on our lives, shaping who we become in much the same way that a symbol is pressed into the page of a book to tell you who it comes from. Dogs, however, leave paw prints on our lives and our souls, which are as unique as fingerprints in every way.”

“Some people like living in black and white worlds. Let them stay there. Appreciate all the colors you see in your world though.”

“The easiest way to gain someone’s trust is to deserve it. This should be pretty easy, assuming you’re just being you and being real. Minimal effort too.”

“The end of a relationship is not always a failure. Sometimes all the love in the world is not enough to save something. In these cases, it is not a matter of fault from either person. Some things cannot be, it’s as simple as that.”

“The only thing that feels worse than being stuck in a situation that makes you unhappy is realizing that you are not ready or willing to change whatever it is.”

“Sooner or later in life, we will all take our own turn being in the position we once had someone else in.”

“The world is not ready for some people when they show up, but that shouldn’t stop anyone.”

“There is nothing worse than having an enemy who is a total loser. It’s incredibly frustrating when seeking revenge against one, because you come to the realization that there is really nothing you can do to make the person’s life worse than it already is. They have nothing to take, there is no way to screw them over if you have been their victim. It’s maddening.”

“There is nothing wrong with revenge. The wrong has already been done, or there would be no need to even the score.”

“There will be a time when you are forced to follow your heart away from someone you love.”

“Two wrongs don’t make a right, but neither does one. Revenge may seem petty by day, but on some nights she becomes Justice.”

“We judge others instantly by their clothes, their cars, their appearance, their race, their education, their social status. The list is endless. What gets me is that most people decide who another person is before they have even spoken to them. What’s even worse is that these same people decide who someone else is, and don’t even know who they are themselves.”

“We may seem fine, even when the pain remains right there beneath our surface.”

“When you want to share something with another person more than anything, it is one of the most difficult things to realize that you can never have it. Accepting this realization is even more difficult. Loving someone does mean saying goodbye to them in some cases, though we will fight that until the oftentimes bitter end before doing the right thing.”

“You cannot force things apart that are bound at the heart.”

“You have to believe what you’re saying if you’re going to convince me. I just can’t break that rule, even if I want to.”

“You know all that sympathy that you feel for an abused child who suffers without a good mom or dad to love and care for them? Well, they don’t stay children forever. No one magically becomes an adult the day they turn eighteen. Some people grow up sooner, many grow up later. Some never really do. But just remember that some people in this world are older versions of those same kids we cry for.”
