Three things you can’t recover in life: The word after it’s said, the moment
after it’s missed, and the time after it’s gone.

Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the
biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take the step.

When thinking about life remember this: no amount of guilt can solve the
past and no amount of anxiety can change the future.

Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you,
for life. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the
most of the moment you are in now.

Sometimes it takes a good fall to really know where you stand.

The past can hurt, but the way I see it, you can either run from it or learn from it.

If you want to fly, you have to give up the crap that weighs you down.

To believe a thing is impossible is to make it so.
