Life is too ironic.
It takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to appreciate silence, and absence to value presence.
Remember that life is full of ups and downs. Without the downs, the ups would mean nothing.
Learn from the past. Prepare for the future. Live for today.
Make your smile change the world, don’t let the world change your smile.
When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, remember that God has given you a thousand reasons to smile.
Before you talk, listen. Before you react, think. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try.
The only people you should try to get even with are those that have helped you.
The past should be the past. It can destroy the future. Live life for what tomorrow has to offer, not for what yesterday has taken away.
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 Corinthians 6:20
For you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
“Nothing is hopeless that is right.” –Susan B. Anthony
“We are all ordinary. We are all boring. We are all spectacular. We are all shy. We are all bold. We are all heroes. We are all helpless. It just depends on the day.” –Brad Meltzer
“Be yourself; everyone else is taken.” –Oscar Wilde

Stay true to yourself. Don’t worry about what people think of you or about the way they try to make you feel. If people want to see you as a good person, they will. If they want to see you as a bad person, absolutely nothing you do will stop them.
Ironically, the more you try to show them your good intentions, the more reason you give them to knock you down if they are committed to misunderstanding you. Keep your head up high and be confident in what you do.
Be confident in your intentions and keep your eyes ahead instead of wasting your time on those who want to drag you back. Because you can’t change people’s views, you have to believe that true change for yourself comes from within you, not from anyone else
