Beauty is the summation of the parts working together so nothing needs to be added, taken away or altered. And that is you. You are beautiful.

Loss has been part of my journey, but it also taught me what was precious

Life is not the amount of breaths you make, it’s the moments that take your breath away.
If I tell you I love you, can I keep you forever?
How lucky I am to have you that makes saying goodbye so hard
A dream is a wish your heart makes
I am someone else when I’m with you, someone more like myself.
One look at your smile and I could see the light shining everywhere
I made a wish upon a star. I turned around and there you were.
True to your heart. You must be true to your heart. That’s when the heaven’s will part.
Trust in me, just in me. Shut your eyes. You can sleep safe and sound. Knowing I am around.
—The Jungle Book
Yesterday is a history, tomorrow is a mystery….today is a gift…that’s why it is called “The Present”
Your heart is free. Have the courage to follow it

Jon Osterman: Why would I save a world I no longer have any stake in?
Laurie Juspeczyk: Do it for me.
Laurie Juspeczyk: The most powerful thing in the universe… still just a puppet.
Jon Osterman: We are all puppets, Laurie. I’m just the puppet who can see the strings.
Miracles by their definition are meaningless, only what can happen does happen.
—Jon Osterman, Watchmen
I heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, “Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. Says, “But doctor… I am Pagliacci.” Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.
Not everyone you love is going to leave you.

In my opinion, the existence of life is a highly overrated phenomenon.

And remember, as it was written, to love another person is to see the face of God.
Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.
Every man dies, not every man really lives.

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.

If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.

Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.

There are millions of people in this world, but in the end, it all comes down to one.
I will find you. No matter how long it will take, no matter how far.

Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out?

I’m dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest… Honestly. It’s the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they’re going to do something incredibly… stupid.
—Captain Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean
Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. Thats what it’s like for me. I didn’t plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt that you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me love like that has happened only once, and thats why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.
Some people can’t believe in themselves until someone else believes in them first.
—Good Will Hunting
Sometimes we love people so much that we have to be numb to it, because if we actually felt how much we loved them.. It would kill us.
—Riding in Cars with Boys
Will you love me for the rest of my life?
No, I’ll love you for the rest of mine.
Sometimes it’s easier to be mad at the people you trust because you know that they’ll always love you no matter what you say.
—The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
Sometimes you have to be apart from people you love. But that doesn’t mean you love them any less. Sometimes, it even makes you love them more.

If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we’re apart.. I’ll always be with you.

“I wonder what Piglet is doing,” thought Pooh.
“I wish I were there to be doing it, too.”
—Winnie the Pooh
Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.
“Sometimes,” said Pooh, “the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time.
“How do you spell ‘love’?” – Piglet
“You don’t spell it…you feel it.” – Pooh”
Pay attention to where you are going because without meaning you might get nowhere.
You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions you should judge them by. It’s actions, not words, that matter.
When you’re struggling with something, look at all the people around you and realize that every single person you see is struggling with something, and to them, it’s just as hard as what you’re going through.
You are, and always have been, my dream.
If you like her, if she makes you happy, and if you feel like you know her—then don’t let her go.
—Message in a Bottle
I have faith that God will show you the answer. But you have to understand that sometimes it takes a while to be able to recognize what God wants you to do. That’s how it often is. God’s voice is usually nothing more than a whisper, and you have to listen very carefully to hear it. But other times, in those rarest of moments, the answer is obvious and rings as loud as a church bell.
—The Last Song
Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.
Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.
One of the advantages of being disorganized is that one is always having surprising discoveries.
Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?
“What day is it?”
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.”
“What I like doing best is Nothing.”
“How do you do Nothing,” asked Pooh after he had wondered for a long time.
“Well, it’s when people call out at you just as you’re going off to do it, ‘What are you going to do, Christopher Robin?’ and you say, ‘Oh, Nothing,’ and then you go and do it.
It means just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.”
“Oh!” said Pooh.”
“I don’t see much sense in that,” said Rabbit.
No,” said Pooh humbly, “there isn’t. But there was going to be when I began it. It’s just that something happened to it along the way.”
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.
The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.
I was walking along looking for somebody, and then suddenly I wasn’t anymore.
“Pooh,” said Rabbit kindly, “you haven’t any brain.”
“I know,” said Pooh humbly.
“Rabbit’s clever,” said Pooh thoughtfully.
Yes,”said Piglet, “Rabbit’s clever.”
And he has Brain.”
Yes,” said Piglet, “Rabbit has Brain.”
There was a long silence.
I suppose,” said Pooh, “that that’s why he never understands anything.”
But, of course, it isn’t really Good-bye, because the Forest will always be there… and anybody who is Friendly with Bears can find it.
—The House at Pooh Corner
We’ll be friends until forever, just you wait and see
There must be somebody there, because somebody must have said “Nobody.”
Fools aren’t born, Pongo… Pretty girls make them in their spare time
Piglet: [hiding under his chair] Perhaps if you said something only you would say, I’d know you’re you.
Winnie the Pooh: [standing outside the door] A very good idea,
Piglet. What should I say?
Piglet: Well, possibly… “I am Pooh.”
Winnie the Pooh: You are? Well then who am I?”
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.

Prince Henry:” And what happens if the person you’re supposed to be with never appears or she does, and you’re too distracted to notice?”
Leonardo da Vinci:”You learn to pay attention.”
You are what you love, not what loves you. That’s what I decided a long time ago.
Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your gonna get.
You’re not perfect sport, and let me save you the suspense, this girl you met, she isn’t perfect either. But the question is whether or not you’re perfect for each other.
—Good Will Hunting
I say find someone you can love like crazy and who’ll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I’m not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you’ll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love – well, you haven’t lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived.
—Meet Joe Black
Tell her that you love her.
You’ve got nothing to lose,
and you’ll always regret it if you don’t.
I may not be a smart man, but I know what love is.
Do not pity the dead, Harry, pity the living. Above all, pity those who live without love.
The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.

Christopher Robin: Pooh, promise you won’t forget me, ever?
Winnie the Pooh: Oh, I won’t, Christopher, I promise.
Christopher Robin: Not even when I’m a hundred?
Winnie the Pooh: How old shall I be then?
Christopher Robin: Ninety-nine.
Christopher Robin: [chuckles] Silly old bear.
It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together … and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home. .. only to no home I’d ever known … I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like … magic.
—Sam, Sleepless in Seattle
…If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love … I love … I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
—Darcy, Pride & Prejudice
It’s like seeing someone for the first time, and you look at each other for a few seconds, and there’s this kind of recognition like you both know something. Next moment the person’s gone, and it’s too late to do anything about it.
—Jack Foley, Out of Sight
It seems right now that all I’ve ever done in my life is making my way here to you.

You see I never stopped loving you, even though I couldn’t see you.

Maybe it is our imperfections which make us so perfect for one another.
It knows that words aren’t needed when you take somebody’s hand.
—Christopher Robin, Winnie-the-Pooh
Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.
What wonderful thing didn’t start out scary?
Once you’ve arrived at the end of the world, it hardly matters which route you took.
It frustrates and fascinates me that we’ll never know for sure, that despite the best efforts of historians and scientists and poets, there are some things we’ll just never know. What the first song sounded like. How it felt to see the first photograph. Who kissed the first kiss, and if it was any good.
What a massive responsibility, being a moral creature
The past is made out of facts…I guess the future is just hope.
We smile, because this is how we save the world.
But it does make me sad that we’ve forgotten our names. Out of everything, this seems to me the most tragic. I miss my own and I mourn for everyone else’s, because I’d like to love them, but I don’t know who they are.
What I’m saying is, when you have weight like that in your life, you have to start looking for the bigger picture or you are gonna sink.
It’s hard to take your life so seriously when you can see it all at once.
I’m not a general or a colonel or a builder of cities. I’m just a corpse who wants not to be.
Even in my bravest moment, I am a coward.
That’s why we have memory. And the opposite of memory – hope. So things that are gone can still matter. So we can built off our pasts and make future.
Love is taking a few steps backward, maybe even more, to give way to the happiness of the person you love.
I wish I knew the way to fix a friendship to put together what has come apart.
Everything has a purpose, clocks tell you the time, trains takes you to places. I’d imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured if the entire world was one big machine… I couldn’t be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason, too.
Maybe that’s why a broken machine always makes me a little sad, because it isn’t able to do what it was meant to do… Maybe it’s the same with people. If you lose your purpose… it’s like you’re broken.
