“Most people think happiness is about gaining something, but it’s not. It’s all about getting rid of the darkness you accumulate.”
Maybe we look the way we do for a reason. Your hair was supposed to be a dirty blonde, and your nose was supposed to be a little larfer than your mothers, and your teeth were supposed to be crooked because we were supposed to meet someone, who made us feel like there is much more, than the little flaws that make us original, not a tube of mascara, or a pair of shorts , because a heartbeat and a few words is all someone needs to really fall in love with you.
People overestimate what they can do in a single day and underestimate what they can do in their whole lives.
Courage does not always roar. Sometimes it’s the quiet voice at the end of the day saying I will try again tomorrow.
Be afraid, but do it anyway. Live anyway.
Wait for the person who pursues you, the one who will make an ordinary moment seem magical, the kind of person who brings out the best in you and makes you want to be a better person. Wait for the person who will be your best friend, the only person who will drop everything to be with you at any time no matter what the circumstances, for the person who makes you smile like no one else and when they smile you know they need you. Wait for the person who wants to show you off to the world when you are in swear and a t-shirt, but appreciates it when you get dressed up for them. And most of all wait for the person who will put you at the center of their universe, because that’s where you belong.
Someday we will find what we’re looking for. Or maybe we won’t. Maybe we will find something much greater.
Do not let him tell you that your mouth is made for kissing. Your mouth is made for the articulate frenzy of revolution, for the crisp shape of kindness, for lurching picket lines and your solitary war cry in a law school classroom. It is made for the brutal pucker of dreaming. Do not let him cradle your jaw in his audacious hands and tell you that your mouth is anything less tahtn the soft and violent devastation of water, stirring. The next sentence begins with I, don’t you dare let it end in love you.
Even if you’re scared, be brave. Speak even if your voice shakes, stand even if your knees quake, smile even if your heart aches.
Don’t worry what people think, they don’t do it very often.
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases from being shared. -Buddha
30 days from now you’re either going to be blown away by how much you’ve improved in how you look, feel and perform. Or you’re going to regret not having done your best. The choice is yours!
There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly love. -Dalai Lama
“Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.”
“You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.”
She was beautiful but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful for the way she though. She was beautiful for the that sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful for her ability to make other people smile even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something temporary like looks. She was beautiful, deep down in her soul.
Now if you are going to win any battle, you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired. -Patton
“When you’re traveling, you are what you are, right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.”
Sometimes you meet someone and even though you never liked your own, you wouldn’t want them any other color. Sometimes you meet someone who’s strangest addiction become beautiful. Sometimes you meet someone who’s addictions become your own like a favorite t.v. show or a love for cooking. SOmetimes you meet someone who’ll skip their favorite t.v. show just to spend time with you and if you’re luck enough to find that person, marry them.

“Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give.”
"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference."
“In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away.”
“Today I caught myself smiling for no reason… then I realized I was thinking about you.”
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. Jn 3:16
When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles, it empties today of its strength.
If you love someone tell them… because hearts are often broken by words left unspoken.
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.
To the world, you may be one person, but to one person, you may be the world(:
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…it’s learning to dance in the rain.
Pain is only temporary but victory is forever.
Don’t practice until you get it right. Practice until you can’t get it wrong.
My coach told me i run like a girl, I told him if he ran a little faster he could too.

A true athlete is made in the offseason being drenched in sweat and barely being able to feel their body. Its at that moment that you realize how bad you want it and that nothing will get in the way of your dream.
If you underestimate your opponent, they have clearly overestimated you.
When you’re playing for the national championship, it’s not a matter of life or death. It’s more important than that.
