The pain we feel When someone leaves our life is in direct proportion to the joy they bring while a part of our life for a few moments. In my life you made me feel as if I truly meant something to someone

I didn't ask for it to be over. But then again I didn't ask for it to begin. For that's the way it is with life, as some of the most beautiful days come completely by chance. But even the most beautiful days eventually have their sunset

A wise man turns chance into good fortune.
Did you ever observe to whom the accidents happen? Chance favors only the prepared mind.
If you want to be successful, you must either have a chance or take one.
A coincidence is a small miracle in which God chooses to remain anonymous.
How come fat chance and slim chance mean the same thing?
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.
Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not depart from it. [Proverbs 22:6]
The desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee. [Isaiah 26:8]
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. [Colossians 3:2]
A fool think he needs no advice, but a wise man listens to others. [Proverbs 12:15]
Mark 13:37 And what I say to you, I say to all, Watch!
The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. [Ecclesiastes 9:11]
Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you. [Matthew]
If someone takes your coat, give him your cloak as well; if he makes you go a mile with him, go with him two. [Mathew]
The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven; for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
He that keepeth the law of the Lord getteth the understanding thereof: and the perfection of the fear of the Lord is wisdom.
What doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
Man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.
If one advances confidently in the directions of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Nobody can teach you love. Love you have to find yourself, within your being, by raising your consciousness to higher levels. And when love comes, there is no question of responsibility. You do things because you enjoy doing them for the person you love. You are not obliging the person, you are not even wanting anything in return, not even gratitude. On the contrary, you are grateful that the person has allowed you to do something for him. It was your joy, sheer joy. Love knows nothing of responsibility. It does many things, it is very creative; it shares all that it has, but it is not a responsibility, remember. Responsibility is an ugly word in comparison to love. Love is natural. Responsibility is created by the cunning priests, politicians who want to dominate you in the name of God, in the name of the nation, in the name of family, in the name of religion -- any fiction will do. But they don't talk about love. On the contrary, they are all against love, because love is unable to be controlled by them. A man of love acts out of his own heart, not according to any moral code. A man of love will not join the army because it is his responsibility to fight for his nation. A man of love will say there are no nations, and there is no question of any fight.
Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.
How can I explain with the exact words the pain you do in me every time you say her name and worst is that she is my best friend
Love once earned must be earned once more. True love is freely given; not gained nor bought. Make therefore every merit to deserve it, but no effort to conquer it.
If I know what love is, it is because of you.
The world is filled with hidden love.
First open your mind to someone,then open your heart
Learning to love yourself first brings more joy and peace then trying to love someone else.
The ultimate love is to give yourself in every moment for the greater good.
Anything you Love or Love to do, is worth a try is worth your time and commitment.
LIFE IS A JOURNEY AND ONLY GOD KNOWS THE DISTANCE
You are only afraid if you are not in harmony with yourself. People are afraid because they have never owned up to themselves.
When you get to the end of all the light you know and it's time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.
We must become the change we want to see.
While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been learning how to die.
Without humility there can be no humanity.
Many people believe that humility is the opposite of pride, when, in fact, it is a point of equilibrium. The opposite of pride is actually a lack of self esteem. A humble person is totally different from a person who cannot recognize and appreciate himself as part of this worlds marvels
The disunited mind is far from wise; how can it meditate? How be at peace? When you know no peace, how can you know joy?
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. [Philippians 2:3]
Before honor is humility.
What makes humility so desirable is the marvelous thing it does to us; it creates in us a capacity for the closest possible intimacy with God.
Nothing is more intolerable than to have to admit to yourself your own errors.
It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.
Humility is the only true wisdom by which we prepare our minds for all the possible changes of life.
It is no great thing to be humble when you are brought low; but to be humble when you are praised is a great and rare attainment.
The cross is the invincible sanctuary of the humble.
Study the best and highest things that are; but of yourself humble thoughts retain.
One that does not think to highly of himself is more than he thinks.
The more humble a man is before God the more he will be exalted; the more humble he is before man, the more he will get rode roughshod.
Humility is the ladder to divine understanding.
If you are right, take the humble side -- you will help the other fellow. If you are wrong, take the humble side -- and you will help yourself.
The proud man counts his newspaper clippings, the humble man his blessings.
The first test of a truly great man is his humility. By humility I don't mean doubt of his powers or hesitation in speaking his opinion, but merely an understanding of the relationship of what he can say and what he can do.
A vulgar mind is proud in prosperity and humble in adversity. A noble mind is humble in prosperity and proud in adversity.
If thou desire the love of God and man, be humble, for the proud heart, as it loves none but itself, is beloved of none but itself. Humility enforces where neither virtue, nor strength, nor reason can prevail.
No one should be ashamed to admit they are wrong, which is but saying, in other words, that they are wiser today than they were yesterday.
Humility leads to strength and not to weakness. It is the highest form of self-respect to admit mistakes and to make amends for them.
A modest man is usually admired, if people ever hear of him.
The desire of the lazy kill him; for his hands refuse to labor. [Proverbs 21:25]
While we look not a that things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. [2 Corinthians 4:18]
Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path. [Psalm 119:105]
I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go. I will counsel you with my eye upon you. [Psalm 25:12]
Ask for the old paths, where the way is good, and walk in it.
Faithful are the wounds of a friend.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. [Hebrews 11:1]
Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. [2 Corinthians 4:16]
It is easier to perceive error than to find truth, for the former lies on the surface and is easily seen, while the latter lies in the depth, where few are willing to search for it.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are.
Without out suffering, our work would just be social work, very good and helpful, but it would not be the work of Jesus Christ, not part of the Redemption. All the desolation of the poor people, not only their material poverty, but their spiritual destitution, must be redeemed. And we must share it, for only by being one with them can we redeem them by bringing God into their lives and bringing them to God.
Who feareth to suffer suffereth already, because he feareth.
If you suffer, thank God! It is a sure sign that you are alive.
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.
The salvation of the world is in man's suffering.
It is good for me that I was afflicted that I may learn Thy statutes. [Psalms 119:71]
Wisdom comes alone through suffering.
Suffering becomes beautiful when anyone bears great calamities with cheerfulness, not through insensibility but through greatness of mind.
One must really have suffered oneself to help others.
For suffering and enduring there is no remedy, but striving and doing.
To choose a hardship for ourselves is our only defense against that hardship. This is what is meant by accepting suffering. Those who, by their very nature, can suffer completely, utterly, have an advantage. That is how we can disarm the power of suffering, make it our own creation, our own choice; submit to it. A justification for suicide.
We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it in full.
If you learn from your suffering, and really come to understand the lesson you were taught, you might be able to help someone else who's now in the phase you may have just completed. Maybe that's what it's all about after all...
Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better.
Such is hope, heaven's own gift to struggling mortals, pervading, like some subtle essence from the skies, all things both good and bad.
He gains a great deal who loses a vain hope.
Hopes are but the dreams of those that wake.
He who has health, has hope. And he who has hope, has everything.
The men whom I have seen succeed best in life always have been cheerful and hopeful men; who went about their business with a smile on their faces; and took the changes and chances of this mortal life like men; facing rough and smooth alike as it came.
My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.
Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.
Hope is both the earliest and the most indispensable virtue inherent in the state of being alive. If life is to be sustained hope must remain, even where confidence is wounded, trust impaired.
Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, but rather an ability to work for something because it is good.
Men and women are limited not by the place of their birth, not by the color of their skin, but by the size of their hope.

We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
Those who hope for no other life are dead even for this.

Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.
Fate, then, is a name for facts not yet passed under the fire of thought; for causes which are unpenetrated.
Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. [Psalms 34:14]
The peace makers shall be called the children of God.
Think not I came to send peace on the earth; I came not to send peace but a sword.
When a person's ways please the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with them.
We've learned how to destroy, but not to create; how to waste, but not to build; how to kill men, but not how to save them; how to die, but seldom how to live.
We used to wonder where war lived, what it was that made it so vile. And now we realize that we know where it lives, that it is inside ourselves.
What all men are really after is some form, or perhaps only some formula, of peace.
As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.
It's faith in something and enthusiasm for something that makes life worth living.
The greatest act of faith is when a man understands he is not God.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
I hope that my achievements in life shall be these -- that I will have fought for what was right and fair, that I will have risked for that which mattered, and that I will have given help to those who were in need that I will have left the earth a better place for what I've done and who I've been.
Let hope inspire you, but let not idealism blind you. Proverb Don't look back, you can never look back.
The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.
Hope is the struggle of the soul, breaking loose from what is perishable, and attesting her eternity.
He who does not hope to win has already lost.
My hopes are not always realized, but I always hope.
Were it not for hope the heart would break.
Though you are disappointed is hope; never let hope fail you! Though one door is shut, there are thousands still open to you.
Of all the forces that make for a better world, none is so indispensable, none so powerful, as hope. Without hope men are only half alive. With hope they dream and think and work.
Who can hope for nothing, should despair for nothing.
Hope is the poor man's bread.
From the withered tree, a flower blooms.
Hope is the golden thread that should be woven into every experience of life.
The secret of the true love of work is the hope of success in that work. It is not for the money reward, for the time spent, or for the skill exercised, but for the successful result in the accomplishment of the work itself.
With each passing day, I didn't lose hope. I fought to have more.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and don't lean on your own understanding. In all things acknowledge him, and he shall direct your way. [Proverbs 3:5, 6]
The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've had.
To get what you want, STOP doing what isn't working.
The fellow who does things that count, doesn't usually stop to count them.
The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.
The only way around is through.
Not the maker of plans and promises, but rather the one who offers faithful service in small matters. This is the person who is most likely to achieve what is good and lasting.
For a man to achieve all that is demanded of him he must regard himself as greater than he is.
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
If life were measured by accomplishments, most of us would die in infancy.
One must marry one's feelings to one's beliefs and ideas. That is probably the only way to achieve a measure of harmony in one's life.
Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and fads and popular opinion.
There is a woman at the beginning of all great things.
Man is always more than he can know of himself; consequently, his accomplishments, time and again, will come as a surprise to him.
Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.
The truth of the matter is that there's nothing you can't accomplish if: (1) You clearly decide what it is that you're absolutely committed to achieving, (2) You're willing to take massive action, (3) You notice what's working or not, and (4) You continue to change your approach until you achieve what you want, using whatever life gives you along the way.
