Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but just look what they do when they stick together ______________________________________________ To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded ____________________________________________ Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one is listening. Love like you've never been hurt and live like it's heaven on Earth You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much The words that escape a friend's mouth are "I'll be there when you say you need me" but the words that are unheard from a true friend's heart are "I'll be there... whether you say you need me or not If you're alone, I'll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile... But anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart Many people will walk in and out of you life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies Friendship is the golden thread that ties the heart of all the world A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering _____****_____****_____ All you need is passion. If you have a passion for something, you'll create the talent. Passion is the fuel.
