"desires govern our choices and our choices take us where we really want to go."

Home is a time, not a place.

The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache

Whatever you "do" on the surface, people respond to who you are "being" when you are doing it.

Use it to your advantage.
Abandon it when it becomes your limitation.

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not;
But remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.

What we know is not always reflected in what we do.

 "a piano in every apartment would do more to prevent crime than a policeman on every corner."
Sometimes the hardest and the right thing are the same.
Seeing now with compassion, my view of others changes whether they change or not.

have a little more faith that the world has doubt.

"it's not the love that sustains the promise, it's the promise that sustains the love."

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
they just make the most of everything.

If you’re not finding what you want, I suggest you teach your eyes to see differently

It's supposed to be hard.
If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it.
The hard... is what makes it great.

I understand that others carry burdens I do not see--including burdens I have placed on them by my own prior self-betrayals.
Happiness depends on whether at the end of the day you focus on what’s tearing you apart,
or what’s holding you together. 

Aim above morality.
Be not simply good;
be good for something.

"a father sets an example for his son, building his character from the soul outward."

A truly happy marriage is one in which a woman gives the best years of her life to the man who made them the best.

"the Lord sees weaknesses differently than He does rebellion."
you do what you do because of what you most value at the time.

One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make other people happy;
One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself.

the best relationship is one where your love for each other is greater than your need for each other.

"the will of God will never take you where the grace of God cannot protect you."

No other single force is causing as much miserable hardship in this country as the collapse of marriage.

"the world will teach our children if we do not, and children are capable of learning all the world will teach them at a very young age."

How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being?

When we treat man as he is,
We make him worse than he is;
When we treat him as if he already were what he potentially could be,
We make him what he should be.
the trick, my brethren and sisters, is to enjoy the journey, traveling hand in hand, in sunshine and storm, as companions who love one another. GBH

Abraham Lincoln, "My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right,"

Do the best you can.
But I want to emphasize that it be the very best.
We are too prone to be satisfied with mediocre performance.
We are capable of doing so much better

Boys are God's way of telling you that your house is too neat

"Your husband is only going to be as great as you think he is."

Having someone to love is family. Having somewhere to go is home. Having both is a blessing.

Happiness is a choice. Our happiness in life isn't made up of what happens to us, but how we react to it.

"I felt I was meeting people who didn't at all seem part of this modern world and this moment in time- the world of petty aggravations and obligations and boundaries, a time of bored cynicism-becuase how they lived and what they lived for was so optimistic. They sincerely loved something, trusted in the perfectibility of some living thing, lived for a myth about themselves and the idea of adventure were convinced that certain things were really worth dying for, believed that they could make their lives into whatever they dreamed."

"...but they did come watch the rest of us head odd on the trip, and I remembered looking up as we pushed off and seeing the forlorn faces of the people left behind looking on. Thats what started my life of adventure. I knew i never wanted to be the one left on the shore."

"Oh, I am not brave, I'm just sure of myself."

I told myself I would never sink in the shallow end, and even if I were to float, I'd float lightly in the deep end.

I had been searching for it for months, but the moment I stopped looking for it, it flooded into my heart like a wave crashing over the sand... The newfound love I have recently found has made me feel so completely alive in so many different ways and the only way I will truely realize its actuality is when it is gone.
Life isn't fair, but life isn't fair for everyone, so life is fair.

most of the time  the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most.

Many people have the wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness.
It is not attained through self-gratification,
but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

never have regrets because at one point everything you did was exactly what you wanted.

You want to add to someone’s life, not take something from it

 just as you can tell a great deal about a man from the way he treats his mother, you can tell alot about his character by how he handles the topic of breasts.

Even though we can't have all we want,
we ought to be thankful we don't get what all we deserve.

You're the only one who can make yourself happy

God made the spaces between our fingers so that another's could fill them.

Life is all about ass.
Everyone is either covering it,
laughing it off,
kicking it,
kissing it,
trying to get a piece of it,
or simply just being one!
