Words to Live By

 

  This list of quotes and words of wisdom was doing the rounds a while back. The quotes struck a chord in me and I at first printed them out and then decided to post them here on my Web site.

I've tried to find attributions for the quotes but have so far been largely unsuccessful (except for the first one). All I've found have been many other instances where people have posted the list on their personal sites, or blogs.

1. I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you.
-- Elizabeth Barrett Browning

2. No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is, won't make you cry.

3. Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

4. A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

5. The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them, knowing you can't have them.

6. Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.

7. To the world you may be only one person, but to one person you may be the world.

8. Don't waste your time on a man/woman who isn't willing to waste their time on you.

9. Maybe we all have to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet that person, we will know how to be grateful.

10. Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened.

11. There's always going to be people that hurt you, so what you have to do is keep on trusting and just be more careful about *who* you trust next time around.

12. Make yourself a better person and know who you are before you try and know someone else and expect them to know you.

13. Don't try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.

14. Remember, whatever happens, happens for a reason.
