A friend is like a flower in a field of weeds. If you pick one, water it every day to keep it blooming near you. As for the weeds, they're all around, so keep your eyes open for that flower.
You never need to explain yourself to one who loves you. However, you will always be explaining to those who don't.
Love is life's longest journey yet it only takes a second to fall from grace.
Silence is not golden when you need someone to talk to you; tell them.
Dogs never give up; humans barely even try.
Feeling sorry for yourself is feeling like everyone else, so why
doesn't it feel good? You know the answer.
Criticizing people are usually not just unhappy with you, but also with themselves. Still, sometimes what they say you must consider; it sometimes shows you how you are perceived, and they may be right, but it shows you more about them.
Have ever noticed that as we age, we become more balanced in our lives, yet our balance is one of the first things to go. Don't fall!
A lot of people can laugh at themselves wanting you to believe they really are humble; but deep down, they know they are prideful.
Humans bond better and more profoundly with animals than they do with their own ken. That's because we are more primitive than we would like to think. We are beasts begging for love from our animal/pets. And we get it from them - far more and forever than we get from humans.
Love God, give yourself to him, and feel the peace within.
Loneliness stalks us, but look not to others to fill your void. A simple greeting to a stranger works wonders. Enjoy the child you pass outside. Study the patterns in a leaf; look at a single cloud or blade of grass, and realize you are not alone. You are an integral part of it all - even though the universe is as infinite as a black hole.
Don't judge others, but judge yourself with gentleness with a view to eliminating behavior that harms you and others.
