- To laugh is to risk appearing a fool.
- To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
- To reach out to another is to risk involvement.
- To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
- To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss.
- To love is to risk not being loved in return.
- To hope is to risk pain.
- To try is to risk failure.
— William Arthur Ward
it may not always be so; and I saythat if your lips,which I have loved, shouldtouch another's, and your dear strong fingers clutchhis heart, as mine in time not far away;if on another's face your sweet hair layin such a silence as I know, or suchgreat writhing words as, uttering overmuch,stand helplessly before the spirit at bay;if this should be, i say if this should be-you of my heart, send me a little word;that I may go unto him, and take his hands,saying, Accept all happiness from me.Then shall I turn my face, and hear one birdsing terribly afar in the lost lands.unlove's the heavenless hell and homeless home...lovers alone wear sunlight.
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”— Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Time is of the essence when you’re manic, you MUST GET THINGS DONE, anything, everything, and you must DO IT IN TIME, the White Rabbit dashing about looking at his pocket watch, I’m late! I’m late! The world won’t stop for me and I have to catch it before it goes flying by and I MISS MY CHANCE to be INCREDIBLE. There is a deadline on incredibility and the clock is ticking away.”
we're soon half-way in the year, how does your upcoming 6 months look like? Carpe Diem!
“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defences, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love”.
– Neil Gaiman
ucurmi comments: actually you don't hate love, you hate everything that's around love
If there's a light I want in the dark its you
You have given my life a point of view
IF you'll always stay with me I'll never ask for anything new
Cuz you've always helped to get out every blue
Oh dad I can't tell you how much I love you
You won't be able to feel it but I really do
Oh mom, I can't express my feelings for you
To tell it all there are words but they are few
I can never walk a step without you both
Without you all I see is an empty road
I can never see clearly when you're not there
I loose myself whenever you're not there
So this is a little song
A little thank you for you
So whenever I go wrong
I can sing it to you
Cuz this life is to short to return what you gave me
But there's only love to give and that's only what I want you to see.
If there's a guide for my soul
I find it in you
If there's someone who can make me whole
I believe that its you
Oh dad how hard you work
To see a smile on my face each day
Oh mom how you satisfy me
How can I ever repay?
I can never see this world without you
Am a little lost girls without you
When you are with me the sun shines and the sky's blue
When you are around I see a world totally new
So this is a little song
To tell you
Maybe this will tell you
How much I love you?
Cuz I believe in dreams because of you
And if I believe in my god then my god is you.

The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this centre is really everywhere, it is within each of us. This is the real peace, and the others are but reflections of this.
“Take chances. Tell the truth. Date someone totally wrong for you. Say no. Spend all your cash. Get to know someone random. Be random. Say I love you. Sing out loud. Laugh at stupid jokes. Cry. Apologize. Tell someone how much they mean to you. Tell a jerk what you think. Laugh till your stomach hurts. Live life. Regret nothing.”
