Life isn’t measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the number of moments that take your breath away.
A person has three choices in life. You can swim against the tide and get exhausted, or you can tread water and let the tide sweep you away, or you can swim with the tide, and let it take you where it wants to go.
Life always offers you a second chance. It’s called tomorrow. Let yourself move to the next chapter in life when the time comes. Don’t remain stuck on the same page.
To live in this world, you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the times comes to let igo, to let it go.
It’s easy to get lost when the map is in your hand and not in your heart. Get involved. You don’t want to look back on your life and realie that you succesfully manged gto stay out of it.

Life would be perfect, if some people had mute buttons and some had edits buttons, bad times had fast forward buttons and good times had pause buttons.
We have enough youth, how about a fountain of smart? Light travels faster than sound. That’s why most people seem bright until you hear them speak.
We mature in knowledge and wisdom but never the playground of our hearts. One of the virtues of being very young is that you don’t let the facts get in the way of your imagination.
We seem to be going through a period of nostalgia, and everyone seems to think yesterday awas better than today. I don’t think it was, and I would advise you not to wait ten years before admitting today was great. If you’r hung up on nostalgia, pretend today is yesterday and just go out and have one hell of a time! I have memories — but only a fool stores his past in the future.

Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is in reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want. People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.
