Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.
Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.
Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.

Happy Birthday to You!
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.

I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
A person's a person, no matter how small.
Only you can control your future.
You�ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.
To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
