Past, present and the Future...

Past, present and the Future...

" Life: a cycle. A series of events, meetings, and departures. Friends discovered, others lost, Precious time, wastes away. Big droplet tears are shed for yesterday, but are dried in time for tomorrow, until all that remain are foggy, broken memories of a happy yesteryear.”
Daniela Gallo

No matter where you are, you're always a bit on your own, always an outsider.”
Banana Yoshimoto, Goodbye Tsugumi.

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.
Rabindranath Tagore

Just living is not enough... one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
Hans Christian Andersen

“For everything in this journey of life we are on, there is a right wing and a left wing: for the wing of love there is anger; for the wing of destiny there is fear; for the wing of pain there is healing; for the wing of hurt there is forgiveness; for the wing of pride there is humility; for the wing of giving there is taking; for the wing of tears there is joy; for the wing of rejection there is acceptance; for the wing of judgment there is grace; for the wing of honor there is shame; for the wing of letting go there is the wing of keeping. We can only fly with two wings and two wings can only stay in the air if there is a balance. Two beautiful wings is perfection. There is a generation of people who idealize perfection as the existence of only one of these wings every time. But I see that a bird with one wing is imperfect. An angel with one wing is imperfect. A butterfly with one wing is dead. So this generation of people strive to always cut off the other wing in the hopes of embodying their ideal of perfection, and in doing so, have created a crippled race.”
C. JoyBell C.

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
Cary Grant

“Cherish every moment with those you love at every stage of your journey.”
Jack Layton

“It's funny how, in this journey of life, even though we may begin at different times and places, our paths cross with others so that we may share our love, compassion, observations, and hope. This is a design of God that I appreciate and cherish.”
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

"We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.”
Henry Ward Beecher

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child - our own two eyes. All is a miracle.
Thich Nhat Hanh

God asks no man whether he will accept life. That is not the choice. You must take it. The only question is how.
Henry Ward Beecher

"Human life is purely a matter of deciding what's important to you"

"At every given moment we are absolutely perfect for what is required for our journey.”
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
Ernest Hemingway
