People always leave.

It hurts the most when you're the one who broke your own heart.
Too many people go through life running from something that isn't after them.
i want someone who doesnt want to change me.
The past can't see you, but the future is listening.
Was I ever truly over him? At one time I was sure that the answer was yes.
But if seeing him again- and merely touching his hand- could peel back
so many layers of my heart, then did I ever stop loving him the way
you're supposed to stop loving everyone but the one you're with?
you know what sucks about falling for
a guy you know you're not right for?
you fall anyway because you think
he might turn out to be different.
people change for either two reasons;
they've learned enough that they want to,
or they've been hurt enough they have to.
I feel more comfortable talking to
strangers than people I know. I
believe this is because, chance are,
I'll never see them ever again. And
I feel like I can say anything I
want. They don't know my past or
what I've done. They can only judge
me on who they are seeing
right that second. I'm the person
I am now, not then.
People I know don't see the difference.
There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be...
Give me any reason to believe, because I'm done here.
It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default."
as she looks through conversations she saved,
she realizes how stupid she was
I know you want some answers, but what is the right answer? Because there is no answer, its just life.
There comes a time when every life goes off course. In this desperate moment you must choose your direction. Will you fight to stay on the path while others tell you who you are? Or will you label yourself? Will you be honored by your choice? Or will you embrace your new path? Each morning you choose to move forward or to simply give up.
People always leave
When you've found a reason to walk away, never look back... Just keep walking. It's better to get lost moving on than to get stuck and stranded broken.
Sometimes, you have to accept the fact that some people are going to stay in your heart forever... even if you are gone in theirs.
Of all goodbyes, the kind that which hurt the most was the one your ears never heard of, yet your heart knew it's already been said.
Don't miss the chances life is giving you to spend with the people you love... Remember that in this life, there are no rewinds.
I need you and you keep taking that away.
Don't you ever let this cruel world to hurt you, to sadden you, and most importantly to break you... don't give up, struggle, sacrifice and don't you ever dare to murder your smile!
What do i do now... what do i do when the person i relied on the most... will never be there again?
I wish i could see the furture, so i can see if life is worth living or if i should just die instead of wasting my time waiting
i wish i could find some happiness in my life.
I know we'd both like to forget everything that has happened. We’ve become strangers; strangers with a past. Lately, I am realizing that I don't miss you; I miss the way you made me feel.
Just because people don't understand you or don't agree with you doesn't mean you're wrong. It's the hardest thing to do, but sometimes standing up for what's right means standing alone
It's hard to think about growing up when you're right in the middle of it. It's hard to know what you want. Sometimes there are so many voices in your head it's difficult to know which of them is yours. You want this; you want that.
Because the truth is, every time you take a big risk in your life, no matter how it ends up, you’re always glad you took it.
Somehow I wasn't meant to have you then, not even for a day. I tore my heart and skin out thinking about you, suffered through a life lived without you, hoping you'd come back when it was time.
you can't always sit in your corner of the forest and wait for people to come to you. you have to go to them sometimes.
Winnie the Pooh
things don't just happen for a reason,
they happen to teach you something.
its never going to be okay; and thats killing me
"You once decided that you didn't want me anymore, but i never gave up on you. And i have no idea why. I probably should have and I definitely wanted to. Maybe a little part of my heart knew that you would come around again."
Why don’t you say what you feel?
She seemed to think this over for a few seconds,
and then she shrugged. "i have. i don’t feel anything."
I'm learning that things change, people change, and it doesn't mean that you forget the past or try to cover it up. It simply means that you move on and treasure the memories.
and I realized we'll never do that.
Never anything like it. No picnics or unguarded smiles.
No rings. Just... stolen moments that leave too quickly.
As human beings, we need to know that we are not alone, that we are not crazy or completely out of our minds, that there are other people out there who feel as we do, live as we do, love as we do, who are like us.
I close my eyes, sick of the riddles, and to my surprise all I could see were dandelions - as if they had been painted on the fields of my imagination, a hundred thousand suns. And I remembered something else that makes us human: faith, the only weapon in our arsenal to battle doubt.
This moment was real too,
even if you couldn't tell at first glance.
It was fake on the outside, but so true within.
You only had to look, really look, to tell.
It was terrible and awful when someone left you.
You could move on,
do the best you could, but an ending was an ending.
No matter how many pages of sentences
and paragraphs of great stories led up to it,
it would always have the last word.
But wasn't that always the way.
It's never something huge that changes everything,
but instead the tiniest of details,
irrevocably tweaking the balance of the universe
while you're busy focusing on the big picture.
I was always trying to make something happen in my life, but nothing much happened except all the drama I created around things not happening
And you asked me if he was worth it, if this was worth it. I said, the thing is, The happiness that I feel when I'm with him is unlike any happiness I have ever experienced. But the sadness that consumes me during the long periods when the happiness is gone is unlike any sadness I've ever had, too. It is bottomless and makes me feel hopeless and sad and ugly. And I can't decide which one is more affecting, Can I live without the happiness, can I live with that sadness? I don't know...I don't know anything anymore.
On the good days, I feel like I get it, like it all makes sense. I can stay in the moment, I don't have to control everything in the future, and I believe everything is gonna work out fine. On the bad days I just want to grab the phone and start dialing numbers. I want to pull my hair and run through the streets screaming. But thanks to the people I've met in these rooms, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna make it through today.
I don't mean to run, but every time you come around, I feel more alive than ever and I guess it's too much. Maybe we're too young and I don't even know what's real. But I know I’ve never wanted anything so bad. I’ve never wanted anyone so bad.
Like the landscape wasn't harsh enough, like the cracks in the dirt and your hands never existed and that you never ripped the dandelions from the yard just to prove you're not the only thing that wasn't considered beautiful.
Your lungs have failed and they both stopped breathing. My heart is dead and it's way pasat beating. Something has gone terribly wrong. I'm scared, you're scared, we're scared of this. I never thought we'd make it alive. I never told you but it's all in your goodbyes. It's all in your goodbyes.
There are too many things I haven't done.
Too many sunsets I haven't seen.
You can't waste a day wishing it'd slow down.
I felt a sudden sense of adventure.
The night was slipping into insanity.
There was no turning back now and I loved it.
It's been so long since it rained this hard. So I'll drive with my windows down to remember how it felt like to feel alive.
I've been running around for the past six months with absolutely no direction.
I didn't know what i wanted. All i knew was that you were always there,
always in my head, always under my skin.
Sometimes, smiling doesn't mean happiness at all.
Because maybe it's just a way of saying,
"I can manage." but sometimes, smiling is just
a way of saying, "I'm tired of crying."
Every thing's so blurry
And everyone's so fake
And everybody's empty
And everything is so messed up
Preoccupied without you
I cannot live at all
My whole world surrounds you
You could be my someone
half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can't, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep saying it.
I said I didn't cry much when you went away. I told you I can move on and I will be okay. I said I was happy when you found someone new. The sad thing is you believed me even if I didn't want you to.
Sometimes it takes hitting rock bottom and hurting the ones you love, to realize what you have become is not what you planned and who you are is not who you like.
if you don't go after what you want,
you'll never get it.
if you don't ask a question,
the answer is always no.
if you don't step forward,
you're always in the same place.
sometimes the things that happen to you in this life,
make you a stronger person for tomorrow
no one deserves to be treated that way. so even if you love him with your entire heart, with every fiber of your being, with so much passion that it hurts to think about it, you need to forget what you want and remember what you deserve
there are things in life that never last.
but the truth is, you never lose them until you let them go.
life is about choices: hanging on, holding back, letting go.
some things do last if you just let them, just if they let you.
do whatever makes you happy, but do it now. live life for the moment because everything else is uncertain. take advantage of what is right in front of you.
if it still hurts, you still care.
some people are easy to get over. they only take a day or two, but sooner or later, you'll find the one who has changed everything about you, and no matter how hard you try, you can't find the words to say goodbye.
I wish couples who desperately take every means to conceive a child would realize that adoption is a wonderful alternative. A child who becomes your child through adoption completes a family. Just as when you commit to your spouse or partner there are no biological ties, yet a family was formed. This child enters a family the same way! It is not blood and flesh that form a family, but the heart.
The day my son was born, I simultaneously died and was reborn. Every day before that day, my life had been about me and what I wanted the world to give me. Every day since, my life necessarily has been about what I can give to someone else. And that, I think, is why the world needs more children – and more parents.
Evolution as described by Charles Darwin is a scientific theory, abundantly reconfirmed, explaining physical phenomena by physical causes. Intelligent Design is a faith-based initiative in rhetorical argument. Should we teach I.D. in America’s public schools? Yes, let’s do it – not as science, but alongside other spiritual beliefs, such as Islam, Zoroastrianism and the Hindu idea that the Earth rests on Chukwa, the giant turtle.
Failure's hard, but success is far more dangerous. If you're successful at the wrong thing, the mix of praise and money and opportunity can lock you in forever.
Heaven is totally overrated. It seems boring. Clouds, listening to people play the harp. It should be somewhere you can’t wait to go, like a luxury hotel. Maybe blue skies and soft music were enough to keep people in line in the 17th century, but Heaven has to step it up a bit. They’re basically getting by because they only have to be better than Hell.
Children are born with such a sense of fairness that they will accept no less than equal treatment for all. I know – I have three. I hope that as they grow, they keep that sense of justice and learn to challenge the old adage that life’s not fair. It should be, in so far as we have control of it.
Some of the best inventive moments were born out of “wrong thinking.” Most people start with the right way so they all follow the same path. The wrong way will lead to mistakes from which you can learn and create new discoveries – the kind of original ideas that come to life when we dare to be different, keep an open mind and have no fear of failure.
Is art entertainment? Art teaches us about who we are. Entertainment tells us who to be. Art is a public service. Entertainment is a private product. Art opens our minds. Entertainment thinks for you. Art is publicly offered. Entertainment is publicly traded. Art is the words we wish to say, but, lack the language to say it.
The human brain is the only object in the known universe that can predict its own future and tell its own fortune. The fact that we can make disastrous decisions even as we foresee their consequences is the great, unsolved mystery of human behavior. When you hold your fate in your hands, why would you ever make a fist?
Many people lack a spiritual belief system and fill that void with obsessions about celebrities. The celebrities are raised to the rank of gods, and these earthly gods will always fail the expectations the masses have set for them. The cycle runs thusly: adoration turns to obsession, obsession turns to disappointment, and from disappointment it is a just a short emotional jump to contempt.
With every generation of children comes the hope for a better world – but only through the provision of education for all. The millions of children who never see the inside of a school are a loss to all humanity.
A very bad (and all too common) way to misread a newspaper: To see whatever supports your point of view as fact, and anything that contradicts your point of view as bias.
Why in moments of crisis do we ask God for strenght and help? As cognitive beings, why would we ask something that may well be a figment of our imaginations for guidance? Why not search inside ourselves for the power to overcome? After all, we are strong enough to cause most of the catastrophes we need to endure.
We are the first generation in history that can end extreme poverty. That's our good fortune, our challenge and our responsibility.
My only regret about being gay is that I repressed it for so long. I surrendered my youth to the people I feared when I could have been out there loving someone. Don't make that mistake yourself. Life's too damn short.
There was never a decision; it was the right thing to do. Each year I talk to 300,000 midle high school and college students about my research in the tobacco industry, and I'm often asked, "Was it hard to make the decision to testify in Congress against the tobacco industry?" The answer is always the same: "There are some events in life that don't need a decision - just action."
I used to think that going to the jungle made my life an adventure.
However, after years of unusual work in exotic places, I realize that it is not how far off I go or how deep into the forest I walk that gives my life meaning. I see that living life fully is what makes life - anyone's life, no matter where they do or do not go - an adventure.
It takes two seconds to tell the truth and it costs nothing. A lie takes time and costs everything.
Once, when excavating the house of a medieval sailor on the coast of the Red Sea in Egypt, I found a still-preserved reed mat in front of a door. Under the doormat was a wooden key with the name of the owner painted on it. It was an extraordinary sense of connection with the last person to walk out of that building 700 years ago.
Our species' survival depends on how fast we embrace the moral shift from "patriot" to "global citizen."
The world bursts at the scams with people ready to tell you you're not good enough. On occasion, some may be correct. But do not do their work for them. Seek any jobs; ask anyone out; pursue any goal. Don't take it personally when they say "no" - they may not me smart enough to say "yes."
Insensitivity makes arrogance ugly; empathy is what makes humility beautiful.
If you're worried about getting a job - or keeping one - start a company of your own. by doing so, you'll reap the rewards of your hard work and you'll only get fired if you fail. This is the land of opportunity. Live in it.
