Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”  -Les Brown

A genius is one who shoots at something no one else can see – and hits it.

You are my very favorite person.

Moving on is simple, it’s what you leave behind that makes it so difficult.

Do more of what makes you happy.

You don’t get to choose how you’re going to die. Or when. You can only decide how you’re going to live.

I loved you.

Why? Why do bad things happen to good people?

“Do what you can with what you’ve got wherever you are.” -Theodore Roosevelt

Loving you was my favorite mistake.

Cool story bro. The best part is when you stopped talking.

“Absence — that common cure of love.” -Miguel De Cervantes

You mean so much to me, and I mean absolutely nothing to you.

I love long hugs.

Don’t do that, you’re turning me on.

I want to be the girl you fall for when everybody else is falling for you.

“Science never solves a problem without creating ten more.” -George Bernard Shaw

I don’t know what I want to talk about, but I want to talk to you.

Same shit, different boy.

Girls fall in love with what they hear. Boys fall in love with what they see. That’s why girls wear make up; and boys lie.

I think we like to complicate things when it is really quite simple; find what it is that makes you happy and who it is that makes you happy and you’re set. Promise.

I didn’t say it was your fault; I said I was blaming you.

“Love takes up where knowledge leaves off.” -Thomas Aquinas

Love never fails.

“Take away love and our earth is a tomb.” -Robert Browning

“Don’t let anyone tell you the sky is the limit. We put dudes on the moon.”

“A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.” -Max Lucado

“Life isn’t fair. We tell our children that it is, but it’s a terrible thing to do. It’s not only a lie, it’s a cruel lie. Life is not fair, and it never has been, and it’s never going to be.” -The Princess Bride

Growing up can mean a lot things. It doesn’t mean you should become somebody completely new and stop loving the things you used to love. It means you’ve just added more things to the list.

They say the little things in life matter the most, but your a big part of me and you matter the most.

I just want to know if your lips really feel the way I’ve been imagining them to for the past eight years.

“Nothing shuts my pie-hole but pie.” -Psych

“To those of you who received honors, awards and distinctions, I say well done. And to the C students, I say you too may one day be president of the United States.” -George W. Bush

“The definition of a beautiful woman is one who loves me.” -Sloan Wilson

Too often we don’t realize what we have until it’s gone, too often we’re to stubborn to say ‘sorry, I was wrong,’ too often it seems we hurt the one’s closest to our hearts and we let the most foolish things tear us apart.

Superman’s not brave. You can’t be brave if you’re indestructible. It’s every day people, like you and me, that are brave, knowing we could easily be defeated, but still continue forward.

“I had no choice about growing up here. I was a hothouse cauliflower. My parents grew me here against my will.” -Maureen Medved

I spent my childhood wishing I was older, now I’m older and this shit sucks.

You don’t miss me, you’re just bored.

They people who think they don’t need love always fall the hardest.

Don’t let go. Never give up. It’s such a wonderful life.

There’s a story behind every person. there’s a reason why they’re the way they are. They aren’t just like that because they want to be. Something in the past created them, and sometimes it’s impossible to fix.

I don’t like when people call me a dumb blonde. It gets on my pet peeves.

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” -George Bernard Shaw

Some people come into your life as blessings. Others come into your life as lessons.

Oh my goodness. First off, I apologize for the lack of posting. School started, and between homework and work and a social life, I have had absolutely zero down time. But this is going to change I promise, because I’m finally starting to settle in a routine, and figure out the swing of things. So expect frequent posts from me again! 🙂

—————-

Always laugh when you can. It’s cheaper than medicine.

Before I met you I never knew what it was like to look at someone and smile for no reason.

Live for the moment.

Stay with me.

Jumping for joy is good exercise.

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” –George Bernard Shaw

“Best way to not get your heart broken, is pretend you don’t have one.” –Charlie Sheen

The things that you own end up owning you.

“If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.” –Maria Shriver

You discover who you are by acting naturally.

Don’t think you’re on the right road just because it’s a well-beaten path.
