Oh my goodness, I have been so busy lately. I apologize for the lack of posts, I will now resume my regular daily schedule 🙂 I finally have some downtime on summer vacation, so I’ll get them up right away. Again, I’m so sorry! Thank you to all that stuck with me even through these past couple months 🙂

No road is long with good company.

Life is like photography, you use the negatives to develop.

It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows.

“Love is an act of courage, not of fear.” -Paolo Freire

One kind word can change someone’s entire day.

Okay, I’ll admit it. You’re the guy all of my love quotes are about. You’re the one I’m thinking about right now. I just really love you.

We gotta stop rethinking things. Because normally, our first thoughts are the right ones…the real ones.

“There are the dreamers and the doers.” -Frank Mathias

See that girl? Yeah, she’s the one who stuck up for you, the one who stayed up til’ midnight just to talk to you. She’s the one whose heart flutters when she gets a call or text from you, the one who says good morning every time she gets the opportunity, and the one who prays she’ll get a chance to say goodnight. Boy, she’s the one who fought for you, the one that missed you and loved you. But by the time you realize that she’s the girl you want, she’ll already be with the guy who figured it out.

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched- they must be felt with the heart.” -Helen Keller

You are never too old for a Disney movie.

Once your heart gets broken you start to see cracks in everything.

What now?

I’ve fallen in love many times… always with you.

Despite all these beautiful things I am lonely.

You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.

I like you. You remind me of when I was young and stupid.

It would be nice to have somebody.

“I felt like crying but nothing came out. It was just a sort of sad sickness, sick sad, when you can’t feel any worse. I think you know it. I think everybody knows it now and then. But I think I have known it pretty often, too often.” -Charles Bukowski

She wasn’t like anyone he’d met before. He was sure he wanted never to let go of her hand; their fingers seemed to fit together in just the right way – effortlessly clasped, like perfect compliments.


I make up a dream in my head before I go to sleep.
