"It's not just other people we need to forgive. We also need
to forgive ourselves. For all the things we didn't do. All the
things we should have done."

-- Mitch Albom

Quote for the day


"Life isn't about keeping score. It's not about how many
people call you and it's not about who you've dated, are
dating, or haven't dated at all. It isn't about who you've
kissed, what sport you play, or which girl or guy likes you.
It's not about your shoes or your hair or the color of your
skin or where you live or go to school. In fact, it's not
about grades, money, clothes, or colleges that accept you.
Life isn't about if you have lots of friends, or if you are
alone, and it's not about how accepted or unaccepted you are.
Life just isn't about that. But life is about who you love and
who you hurt. It's about how you feel about yourself. It's
about trust, happiness, and compassion. It's about sticking up
for your friends and replacing inner hate with love. Life is
about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance, and building
confidence. It's about what you say and what you mean. It's
about seeing people for who they are and not what they have.
Most of all, it's about choosing to use your life to touch
someone else's in a way that could never have been achieved
otherwise. These choices are what life's about."

"I've seen a baby cry then seconds later she laughed; the
beauty of life, the pain never lasts."

Quote



"If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never truly
be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will
never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is
nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you."

-- Lao Tzu

Today's Inspirational Quote:



"When you start to really know someone, all his physical
characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in his
energy, recognize the scent of his skin. You see only the
essence of the person, not the shell. That's why you can't
fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated
by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and body
but not your heart. And that's why, when you really connect
with a person's inner self, any physical imperfections
disappear, become irrelevant."

Quote for the day!


"Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is beauty,
admire it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge,
meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life
is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life
is luck, make it. Life is life, fight for it."

-- Mother Teresa
