Happiness is the best face lift.
Can I borrow a kiss? I promise I’ll give it back.
Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.
I’m not sure about much and I always struggle to explain the way I feel. I don’t open to anyone and I keep my heart locked away. But somehow you made it leap out of my chest. Somehow you get me to tell you my deepest, darkest secrets. And somehow I might have fallen in love with you.
People can live one hundred years without really living a minute.

Why do we let the acceptance from others make or break us? Why do we base how attractive or charming or good of a person we are on how many guys like us or don’t like us? Why can’t we just suck it up and say “Hey, I’m a pretty cool person”? When guys don’t like us back, why can’t we accept that it’s their loss, not ours?
I watched you change.
The darkest hour is always just before dawn breaks.
“A life without cause is a life without effect.” -Barbarella
I might not have you in my life, and I might never have you in it again. I might not be the first thought that comes up to your mind when you wake up, or the last one that leaves your head once you go to sleep, but I will always remember you and I will never forget you and you will always and forever be that one stage in my life where my first true love ever existed. And now I know, that when my kids ask me who my first love was, I’m going to dig for the photo album and show them a picture of you, not their father, not the man before him, no one else but you.
It’s funny how after an argument is over, you start to think about more clever shit you could have said.
“Tomorrow is fresh, with no mistakes in it.” -L.M. Montgomery

I miss being the age when I thought I would have my shit together by the time I was the age I am now.
The life you live is more important than the words you speak.
Class is knowing what to say, when to say it, and when to stop.
A lawful kiss is never worth a stolen one.

Moving on is simple, it’s what you leave behind that makes it so difficult.
“Love is often gentle, desire always a rage.” -Mignon McLaughlin
The worst way to love someone is to sit next to them, knowing they don’t love you back.
If you try to fail and succeed, then which have you done?
