Each of us may think we know exactly what we need to make us happy, what will be good for us, what will ensure we have our happy ending, but that life rarely works out in the way we expect, and that our happy ending may have all sorts of unexpected twists and turns, be shaped in all sorts of unexpected ways. 

- Jane Green, Swapping Lives

It is said that the darkest hour of the night comes just before the dawn. 

- Paul Coelho, The Alchemist

I want my normal back. It wasn't picture perfect, but it was that kind of picture that was so out there it worked.

- The Diaries of Tim Carter

Adversity is like a strong wind. I don't mean just that it holds us back from a place we might otherwise go. It also tears us from things that cannot be torn , so that afterward we see ourselves as we really are, and not merely as we might like to be.

- Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.

Maybe crying is a means of cleaning yourself out emotionally. Or maybe it's your communication of last resort; the only way to express yourself when words fail the same as when you were a baby and had no words. 

- Aristotle

If someone isn't what others want them to be, the others become angry . Everyone seems to have a clear idea about how other people should lead their lives but none about his or her own.

- Paul Coelho, The Alchemist

All you have to do in life is go out with your friends, party hard and look twice as good as the girl standing next to you . 

- Paris Hilton

Hold fast to your friends. 
Be true to yourself. 
And stop trying to be just like somebody else.
Be yourself, play it loud. 
Raise your voice, shout it out. 


I like beginnings because they're so full of promise. The first page of a book, the first day of a job, the first time you buy yourself flowers, the first date with a new man, the first touch, the first kiss, the first kick of a good liquor, the first moment you hold your own baby. I like beginnings because I know there's always more to come. 

- Shyma Perera, Bitter Sweet Symphony

War does not determine who is right, war determines who is left.

And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing about tears, they can't make somebody that doesn't love you anymore love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for all the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war with them, and they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try and do something good, it still turns out bad.

- The United States of Leland

Apologizing is like white-out, 
It covers up the mistakes, 
But they never really go away.

You get the best out of others when you give the best of yourself.

Who we are never changes. Who we think we are does.

- Mary S. Almanac

Out of respect for things that I was never destined to do, I have learned that my strengths are a result of my weaknesses, my success is due to my failures and my style is directly related to my limitations.

- Billy Joel 

I go to sleep alone, and wake up alone. I take walks. I work until I'm tried. I watch the wind play with the trash that's been under the snow all winter. Everything seems simple until you think about it.

- Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler's Wife

A laundry list of problems doesn't make you interesting 
And never getting help doesn't make you brave 
Not listening to reason doesn't mean that you have faith 
You're just cutting off your nose to spite your face.

- Unknown

The nice thing about rain, is that it always stops. Eventually. 

- Eeyore 

The thing is, it's a big deal when you finally get the chance to do the one thing you want to do-need to do-more than anything.  It can kind of scare the crap out of you. 

- Sarah Dessen, Just Listen
