here are a few meaningful qoutes that i thought were post-worthy~


for everything you have missed you have gained something else.

truely loveing another means letting go of all expectations. It means full acceptance, even celebration of another's personhood.

shared joy is double joy, shared sorrow is half the sorrow.

It takes alot of understanding, time and trust togain a close friendship with someone. As i approach a time of my life of complete uncertainty, my friends are my most precious assets.

you were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?

love is space and time measured by the heart.

Another's heart is a rare and fragile gift....hold it gently, and with both hands.

what the ehart has once owned and loved shall never be lost.

dont settle for the one you can live with, wait for the one you can't live without.

youth is the gift of naature, but age is a work of art.

dont just count your years, make your years count.

you know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.

anything worth having is worth working hard for.

Once a teacher of physics tries to explane something to his students.

He took an small aquarium and he filled it up with golf-balls. Then he asked his students, IS IT FULL?

They answered YES IT IS. Then he took a basket with Cherries and he mixed them with the Golf-Balls in the Aquarium and the cherries filled up the empty spaces between the golf-balls and he asked his students, IS IT FULL?
The answered, YES IT IS!

The he took a basket with sand and mixed it with the Golf-balls in the aquarium and he asked his students, IS IT FULL?
TEY ANSWERED, YES IT IS!

Then he took 2 cans of beer and he emptied them into the aquarium.

Then he started axplaining the meening of this everything:

The Golf-Balls are the most important things in your life like Family and Friends.
The Cherries are things that are also important but less important then the Golf-Balls like Job, education and everything.

The sand are thing that are really not important.

But we should be carefull of how we handle everything like, if we put in the sand at first, there will be no space for the golf-balls or the cherries. If we put in the cherries first, there will be no space for the golf-balls.

But suddenly one of the students raises his hand and says, excuse me but what is the meaning of the 2 cans of beer.

Well, I`m glad your asking, NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO IN LIFE, YOU`LL ALWAYS FIND A MOMENT FOR A COUPLE OF BEERS>

Just out of curiosity those last words by Willie Nelson (they may actually be his last words smile.gif ) are they from his newly released song? I hope they won't harass him that much in the "abode of liberty".

It is well that there is no one without a fault; for he would not have a friend
in the world. He would seem to belong to a different species.

If life throws you a lemon, make lemonade.

What goes around, comes around.

Don't know what you got till it's gone.

Everything happens for a reason.
