Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

Read like you can't get enough learning.

Listen like your life depends on hearing.

Memorize your favorite poem.

Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have, or sleep all you want.

When you say, "I love you", mean it.

When you say, "I'm sorry", look the person in the eye.

To have character is to be big enough to take life on.

Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

Believe in love at first sight.

Never laugh at anyone's dreams, because people who don't have dreams don't have much.

Happiness is not pleasure, it is victory!

Real friends believe in your dreams as much as you do.

Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

Share your smile with everyone, but save your kiss for only one.

In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

Don't judge people by their relatives.

Forget the troubles that passed away. Remember the blessings that come each day.

Don't use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved.

Be not simply good, but good for something!

Talk slow but think quick.

Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.

When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask," Why do you want to know?"

Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Smile a lot. It costs nothing and is beyond price.

Call your mom.

Don't marry someone you can live with, marry the person who you cannot live without.

Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.

When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen every day.

Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; Responsibility for all your actions.

A friend listens to our words but hears our heart.

Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

Remember, regardless of how hot & steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place.

Spend some time alone.

Goodness is the only investment that never fails.

Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

The quality of life is in the mind, not in material.

Learn to listen. Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly.

Be cheerful. The problems that worry us most are those that never arrive.

Read more books and watch less TV.

Live a good and honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll get to enjoy it a second time.

Live every day of your life as though you expect to live forever!

Trust in God but lock your car.

Plant a dream, and watch it grow!

A loving atmosphere in your home is so important. Do all you can to create a tranquil harmonious home.

In disagreements with loved ones, deal with the current situation. Don't bring up the past.

Read between the lines.

Never cut what can be untied.

Think big thoughts, but relish small pleasures.

Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.

Watch for big problems. They disguise big opportunities.

Be gentle with the earth.

Pray. There's immeasurable power in it.

Never interrupt when you are being flattered.

Mind your own business.

Kind words do not cost much, yet they accomplish much.

Don't trust a man/woman who doesn't close their eyes when you kiss them.

Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.

If you make a lot of money, put it to use helping others while you are living. That is wealth's greatest satisfaction.

Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a stroke of luck.

Learn the rules then break some.

Remember that the best relationship is one where your love for each other is greater than your need for each other.

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

We grow because we struggle, we learn, and we overcome.

Cherish yesterday, dream tomorrow, LIVE today!

Remember that your character is your destiny.

You've got to dance like nobody's watching and love like it's never going to hurt.

The world is filled with beauty when your heart is filled with love!

Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon!

What I've Learned

I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people just don't care back.

I've learned that no matter how good a person is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while, and you must forgive them for that.

I've learned that money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I've learned that talking can ease emotional pains.

I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.

I've learned that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance.

I've learned that you can do something in an instant that will give you a heartache for life.

I've learned that it's not WHAT you have in your life, but WHO you have in your life.

I've learned that good friends are family members that we are allowed to choose.

I've learned that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I've learned that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I've learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for ourselves.

I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to the best others can do, but to the best you can do.

I've learned that no matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides.

I've learned that it takes a long time to become the person I want to be.

I've learned that it's a lot easier to react than it is to think.

I've learned that you can keep going long after you think you cannot.

I've learned that either you control your attitude, or it controls you.

I've learned that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I've learned that patience takes a whole lot of practice.

I've learned that there are people who love you dearly, but just don't know how to show it.

I've learned that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down will be the ones to help you get back up.

I've learned that there is more of my parents in me that I thought.

I've learned that when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I've learned that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want him/her to doesn't mean he/she doesn't love you with all he/she has.

I've learned that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them, and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I've learned that you should never tell a child their dreams are unlikely or outlandish. Few things are more humiliating, and what a tragedy it would be if they believed it.

I've learned that it isn't enough to be forgiven by someone else. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I've learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn't stop for your grief.

Maybe we are supposed to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally do meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.

When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but oftentimes we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the one which has been opened for us.

The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they'll love you back! Don't expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart, but if it doesn't, be content it grew in yours. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Don't go for looks; they can deceive. Don't go for wealth; even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart smile.

Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

Always put yourself in others' shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past. You can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear.

There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you want to * them from your dreams and hug them for real!

Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives.

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you.

No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is, won't make you cry.

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

The absolute worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can't have them.

Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.

To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened.

You can't trust your dog to watch your food.

Never hold a dust buster and a cat at the same time!

You can't hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk!

Don't waste your time on a man/woman, who isn't willing to waste their time on you.

There's always going to be people that hurt you, so what you have to do is keep on trusting and just be more careful about who you trust the next time around.

A True friend and a Simple Friend


A simple friend has never seen you cry.  A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears.

A simple friend doesn't know your parents' first names.  A real friend has their phone numbers in his address book.

A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party.  A real friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean up.

A simple friend hates it when you call after he has gone to bed.  A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.

A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems.  A real friend seeks to help you with your problems.

A simple friend wonders about your romantic history.  A real friend could blackmail you with it. ;)

A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest.  A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself.

A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you HAVE an argument.  A real friend knows that it's not a friendship until after you've had a fight.

A simple friend expects you to always be there for them.  A real friend expects to always be there for you!

As I've Aged...

I would never trade my amazing friends, my wonderful life, my loving family for less gray hair or a flatter belly.  As I've aged, I've become more kind to myself, and less critical of myself.

I've become my own friend.  I don't chide myself for eating that extra cookie, or for not making my bed, or for buying that silly cement gecko that I didn't need, but looks so avante garde on my patio. I am entitled to a treat, to be messy, to be extravagant.

I have seen too many dear friends leave this world too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.

Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer until 4 AM and sleep until noon?

I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 60&70's, and if I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love ... then I will.

I will walk the beach in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves with abandon if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set.

They, too, will get old.

I know I am sometimes forgetful.. But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten.  And I eventually remember the important things.

Sure, over the years my heart has been broken.  How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car, or has to be put down?  But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion.  A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and will never know the joy of being imperfect.

I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face.

So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.

As you get older, it is easier to be positive.  You care less about what other people think.  I don't question myself anymore.  I've even earned the right to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being old.  It has set me free.  I like the person I have become.  I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be.  And I shall eat dessert every single day.  (If I damn well feel like it!)
