When did the future switch from being a promise to being a threat? ~Chuck Palahniuk
There comes a time when a woman needs to stop thinking about her looks and focus her energies on raising her children. This time comes at the moment of conception. A child needs a role model, not a supermodel. ~Astrid Alauda, on the “hot mom” trend
It’ll be a great day when education gets all the money it wants and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy bombers. ~Unknown author, quoted in You Said a Mouthful edited by Ronald D. Fuchs
Society is composed of two great classes – those who have more dinners than appetite, and those who have more appetite than dinners. ~Sébastien-Roch Nicholas de Chamfort
It would be a service to mankind if the pill were available in slot machines and the cigarette were placed on prescription. ~Malcolm Potts, MD
The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that man may become robots. ~Erich Fromm
When people go to work, they shouldn’t have to leave their hearts at home. ~Betty Bender
Choice has always been a privilege of those who could afford to pay for it. ~Ellen Frankfort
You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover’s arms can only come later when you’re sure they won’t laugh if you trip. ~Jonathan Carroll, “Outside the Dog Museum”
When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. No… don’t blush. I am telling you some truths. For that is just being in love; which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away… (Iannis to Pelagia)
I’ve had the boyhood thing of being Elvis. Now I want to be with my best friend, and my best friend’s my wife. Who could ask for anything more?
Love is blind — marriage is the eye-opener.
For any woman to success in American life she must first do two things: Prepare herself for a profession, and marry a man who wants her to succeed as much as she does.
“Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep… wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you’re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky his is to have you…. The one who turns to his friends and says, ‘that’s her.’”
“I don’t pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you.”
If someone asks you “what would be one thing you would change about yourself?” The best answer is nothing, because if you change yourself and don’t be who you are, then who are you?
You don’t get to choose, you just fall in love. And you get this person who is all wrong and all right at the same time. And you know that you love them so much except sometimes they just drive you completely insane and no one can explain it and the reason its so confusing is because its love. but if love didn’t have any challenges, what would be the point?
In your life, you meet people..
Some you never think about again..
Some you wonder what happened to them..
There are some that you wonder if they ever think about you..
And then there are those you wish you never had to think about..
… But you d o…
Don’t look down on anyone unless you are helping them up.
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
When I was a kid, my father had this dog that started to get all weak and sickly. He takes it to the vet, he examines it and says a maggot must have laid eggs in the dog’s butt. The baby maggots have crawled up, now they’ve started to grow, and eventually they’re gonna eat the dog alive from the inside. He says it should be put to sleep, because it’s an old dog anyway. But father won’t do it. He takes the dog home, he puts it on the bed, he reaches up into the dog, picking out the maggots with his finger, one by one. It takes him all night, but he gets every last one. That dog outlived my father. That’s love, Sam. – addicted to love

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us,
we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice,
solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion,
who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement,
who can tolerate not knowing, not curing,
not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness,
that is a friend who cares.
the tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon,
but that we wait so long to begin it.
to love. to be loved. to never forget your own insignificance. to never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. to seek joy in the saddest places. to pursue beauty to its lair. to never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. to respect strength, never power. above all, to watch. to try and understand. to never look away. and never, never to forget.”
“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”
A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to
be himself – to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me,
but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love
being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom
and can never grow in a jealous heart.
You’ll never know how strong you are
until being strong is the only option you have.
everybody wants to be the sun that lights up your life
but i’d rather be the moon, so i can shine on you
during your darkest hour of the darkest day
when your sun isnt around.
The kisses you place on my forehead, when you
think I’m asleep mean the most. Why?
Because you did them because you wanted to,
and not because you had to.
Don’t ever complain about growing old, so many people never get the chance.
All I could think about was that time we stayed up all night talking. You didn’t say that I was wrong or stupid. You didn’t laugh at me when I confessed my wildest dreams. You just listened, and it was then that I knew. I knew I wanted to be with you.
No girl should ever forget that she doesn’t
need anyone who doesn’t need her.
– Marilyn Monroe
But yesterday, I felt something I haven’t felt for a long time.
For those two seconds when you brushed my shoulder
it was like the entire universe trembled
and the electricity there was enough
to light up the whole city.
These were in my quote collection.. saved them on 4/11/2009
Don’t find love, let love find you. That’s why it’s
called falling in love, because you don’t force
yourself to fall, you just fall.
Lucky is the man who is the first love of a woman,
but luckier is the woman who is the last love of a man.
It takes a minute to have a crush on someone,
an hour to like someone, and an day to love someone…
but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
It breaks your heart to see the one you love is happy
with someone else, but it’s more painful to know that
the one you love is unhappy with you.
A good marriage is like a casserole,
only those responsible for it really
know what goes in it.
Christmas is my most favorite holiday. Baking cookies, drinking hot chocolate, wrapping presents, decorating the tree all really bring family together. I love my Christmas music too! My favorite song is “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey. It reminds me of my hubby. What’s yours?
