Eleven Hints for Life

1. It hurts to love some­one and not be loved in return.  But what is more painful is to love some­one and never find the courage to let that per­son know how you feel.
2. A sad thing in life is when you meet some­one who means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and you just have to let go.
3. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feel­ing like it was the best con­ver­sa­tion you’ve ever had.
4. It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been miss­ing until it arrives.
5. It takes only a minute to get a crush on some­one, an hour to like some­one, and a day to love some­one — but it takes a life­time to for­get someone.
6. Don’t go for looks, they can deceive. Don’t go for wealth, even that fades away. Go for some­one who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.
7. Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.
8. Always put your­self in the other’s shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it prob­a­bly hurts the per­son too.
9. A care­less word may kin­dle strife. A cruel word may wreck a life. A timely word may level stress. But a lov­ing word may heal and bless.
10. The hap­pi­est of peo­ple don’t nec­es­sar­ily have the best of every­thing they just make the most of every­thing that comes along their way.
11. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with a tear. When you were born, you were cry­ing and every­one around you was smil­ing. Live your life so that when you die, you’re the one smil­ing and every­one around you is crying.
