Looking back, I remember every moment where he made me feel on top of the world.  I was the world, not only that, I was the sun, the moon, the sky, and all the  stars in it. In those moments, I was infinite, I was everything, I was his.

People should be able to say how they feel. How they really feel. Not, you know, some words that some strangers put in their mouth.

Fuck normality.

Friendship isn’t a big thing. It’s a million little things.

It’s just hard to think I’ll never get the chance to say you’re mine.

Always choose life.

Happiness is the result of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it. And sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly.

You make breathing look magical.

“I say “Out” to every negative thought that comes to my mind.  No person, place, or thing has any power over me, for I am the only thinker in my mind.  I create my own reality and everyone in it.”   –Louise Hay

“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.” -Will Rogers

“Beauty, without expression, tires.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An elephant’s faithful, one hundred percent.

I walk down memory lane because I love running into you.

“Goodbyes make my throat hurt…I need more hellos.” -Charlie Brown

It takes a couple seconds to say Hello, but forever to say Goodbye.

She’s banged up. mentally and emotionally, literally and metaphorically, but every day she walks outside with a smile on her face because that’s who she is.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Don’t do anything half-ass. If you love someone, love them with all your heart. If you hate someone, hate them until it hurts.

Friends are God’s way of taking care of us.

Insecurity is an ugly thing. It makes you hate people you don’t even know.

Everybody needs inspiration.

I think it would be better if we just didn’t talk for a while.

You know what your problem is? You get attached, fast. And once you’re attached to someone, you do everything you can to please them and make them happy. It’s never been about what you want, it’s always everyone’s needs before your own. You give out too many chances to people, who quite frankly, do not deserve them. They take advantage of you, and you become a pushover. But you’re okay with that, because they’re in your life and that’s all you ever really wanted. And even if they screw you over, you’ll still be there for them. Because that’s you, that who you are. Once you get attached to someone, they capture your heart and they always have a place there. And that is why it’s so hard for you to let him go.

We live in a society where pizza gets to your house before the police.

Tell a girl she’s beautiful and she’ll believe it for a moment. Tell a girl she’s worthless and she’ll believe it for the rest of her life.

Be madly excited about the potential for today.

Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer.

I tell you I love you every day for fear that tomorrow isn’t another.

I think one of the worst feelings in the world, right behind heart break, is that disgustingly empty feeling you get, right after you spill your heart out and lay all your cards on the table. Right after you get the courage to say everything you have been feeling and be completely and recklessly honest. Its that feeling you get right after you risk everything, and he just walks away. Because then you realize that you just lost. You lost everything you didn’t even know you had when you said “what do I have to lose?”

I can’t look you in the eyes because I don’t know who’s looking back anymore.

Then I met you.

Sometimes there is no next time, no time-outs, no second chances; sometimes it’s now or never.

Destroy what destroys you.

Google is the brain I never had.
