Life Quotes

I don’t want to fabricate a perfect love anymore. I just want to live a little better. To not be hurt anymore, and to not hurt others. I don’t like it that there’s so much wounding in the world. If there persists in being so much wounding in the world, I don’t want to live in it. My need for true love isn’t so important now. The important thing is to lead a life where no one can wound me anymore.
The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.
With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.
The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people. – Randy Pausch
Sure, it sucked to be lost, but I’d long ago realized I preferred it to depending on anyone else to get me where I needed to go. That was the thing about being alone, in theory or in principle. Whatever happened– good, bad, or anywhere in between-it was always, if nothing else, all your own. -Sarah Dessen
You wanna know what living life to the fullest actually is? It’s waking up on a Monday morning with no complaints. It’s knowing you always deserve to laugh. It’s doing what feels right no matter what. It’s doing what you want to, no matter how stupid you look. It’s about being yourself, cause no one can tell you you’re doing it wrong.
I wanted a perfect ending, now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what is going to happen next.
When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important. It’s hard to understand failure when you’re going through it, but in the grand scheme of things it’s good to fall down-not because you’re drunk and not near stairs.
The five W’s of life: Who you are is what makes you special. Do not change for anyone. What lies ahead will always be a mystery. Do not be afraid to explore. When life pushes you over, push back harder. Where there are choices to make, make the one you won’t regret. Why things happen will never be certain. Take it in stride and move forward.
So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
That’s what life is about. Those moments when you feel entirely carefree, like nothing can touch you. It’s those moments that make the hard parts so worth it. It’s moments like that that make this heartache bearable. I know it’ll pass – my moments will come.
We become a lot of different people before we settle into who we really are.
And in the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take, the people we were too afraid to get close with, the opportunities we passed on and the decisions we couldn’t make because we waited too long.
The things about life that I’ve learned is that you’re going to get hurt. You’re going to have emotional nights and cry yourself to sleep for hours. You’re going to suffer some kind of heartbreak, some kind of LOSS. But you will also have those moments where you heal. Those moments are the BEST. You feel like you smile for the first time again. You feel like you’re alive again. Life just kind of restarts.
Everything will be OKAY. Think about what happened a year ago today. You probably can’t even remember. Everything that seems important now won’t be anymore. Things find a way of working themselves out. Things aren’t as impossible as they seem. WHATEVER HAPPENS is what is supposed to happen.
I think life isn’t as complicated as we make it out to be. We are constantly looking for answers. But there are no answers, things just happen. The good and the bad. To see the rainbow you’ve got to put up with the rain. It happens, and there is nothing we can do about it. The universe isn’t made up of questions, waiting for us to answer.
Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late. You don’t have to like it–it’s just easier if you do.
You have to get hurt. That’s how you learn. The strongest people out there, the ones who laugh the hardest with a genuine smile, those are the people who have fought the toughest battles. Because they’ve decided that they’re not going to let anything hold them down, they’re showing the world who’s the boss.
You wanna know what living life to the fullest actually is? It’s waking up on a Monday morning with no complaints. It’s knowing you always deserve to laugh. It’s doing what feels right no matter what. It’s doing what you want to, no matter how stupid you look. It’s about being yourself, cause no one can tell you you’re doing it wrong.
There are days when everything seems wrong, when little things hurt you for no good reason. And then there are days, when the world just sings to you, from the minutes you open your eyes to the minute you shut them again at night.
Sometimes you question yourself. Are you doing the right thing? What will people think about you? But the truth is, it shouldn’t matter what people think. As long as you’re doing what you love, then you’ll know it’s the right thing to do.
I’m thinking that sometimes you just have to make the decision to be happy. Just realize that things aren’t ever what you hoped they’d be. Not ever. For anybody. The only thing that separates one kind of person from another is that there are some who stay angry about it and there are some who accept what comes their way.
I believe in karma. What you give is what you get returned. I believe you can’t appreciate real love until you’ve been burned. I believe the grass is greener on the other side. I believe you don’t know what you’ve got until you have to say goodbye. But the struggles make you stronger and the changes make you wise and happiness has it’s own way of taking it’s sweet time. Life isn’t always beautiful, but it’s a beautiful ride.
I don’t give up easily; I fight for what I want. It takes a lot for me to actually give up on something or someone. I can’t just throw away all the hard work and time I put into it. I can’t just give up because times are hard, especially if that person means so much to me. I keep fighting for what I want until I can’t fight anymore, until giving up is the only option I have left.
But mostly, I cried because my life had been going full speed for so long & now it had just stopped, like running right into a big brick wall, knocking the wind & the fight right out of me. & I didn’t know if I ever even wanted to get up & start breathing again. We’re so busy watching out for what’s just ahead of us that we don’t take time to enjoy where we are.
I’ve been to hell and back. I spill shit, trip, and embarrass myself. I can’t just flutter my eyes and get that boy. My life is messed up. I’ve been through more shit than you see on TV. Nobody’s perfect. I’ve been lid to, cheated on, and had my heart stolen. I’ve fucked up, fucked people up, and been fucked up. But everything was worth it because I felt it. I knew it was real. Life is real and I’m living it wrong everyday. I’m fucking up royally and doing everything opposite – but do I regret one thing? Never. Because at one point, what I did what was I wanted and I got my fucking satisfaction. My life is mine and no stupid bitch or immature boy can fuck it up for me anymore. I’m the real deal and I’d love to see you try and break me.
Sometimes you’ve got to run away to see who will run after you. Sometimes you’ve got to talk quieter to see who’s really listening. Sometimes you’ve got to step up to fight only to see who’s standing by your side. Sometimes you’ve got to make a wrong decision only to see who’s there to help you fix it. Sometimes you’ve got to let go of the one you love just to see if they love you enough to come back to you.
Sometimes in life, fate brings things together. When that happens you will find that one special person who would race over to your house in the middle of the night just to wipe the tears from your face. You will be able to go around with no makeup, sweat pants, major bed head and they will still make you feel beautiful. When you realize that you have this amazing person, hold on tight. Chances are that they are your soul mate.
