SOME OF MY FAVORITE POEMS AND QUOTES~
Hope by: Emily Dickinson
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me. -Anonomous
Good friends are like antiques, they grow more precious with time. -Anonomous
Don't ask for an easier life; ask to be a stronger person. -Anonomous
Some people are like slinkies. they aren't really good for anything, but it brings a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs. -Anonomous
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. -Mohandas Gandhi
"This above all: to thine own self be true".
- William Shakespeare
An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.
Love is like magic
and it always will be,
For love still remains
life's sweet mystery.
Love works in ways
that are wondrous and strange
And there's nothing in life
that love cannot change!
Love can transform
the most commonplace
Into beauty and splendor
and sweetness and grace.
Love is unselfish,
understanding and kind,
For it sees with its heart
and not with its mind.
Love is the answer
that everyone seeks...
Love is the language
that every heart speaks.
Love can't be bought,
it is priceless and free,
Love, like pure magic,
is life's sweet mystery! -Anonomous
Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take,
it's the moments that take your breath away. -?
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.
- ee cummings
"The course of true love never did run smooth." - Shakespeare (from A Midsummer Night's Dream)
"All is fair in love and war." -Francis Edward Smedley
"shoot for the moon. even if you miss, you'll land among the stars." - anonymous
Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you.
- William Arthur Ward
"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."
- Elizabeth K. Ross
My word is one thing I can give and still keep
"Never lie, steal, cheat or drink. But, if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away."
What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.
"The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it."
