Words to Live by….

“At this moment, there are 6 billion, 4 hundred, 71 million, 8 hundred, 18 thousand, 6 hundred, 71 people in the world. Some are running scared.. some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day.. others are just now facing the truth. Some are evil men at war with good, and some are good.. struggling with evil. 6 billion people in the world, 6 billion souls — and sometimes.. all you need is 1.”

~One Tree Hill: Episode #301 · Like You Like an Arsonist

 

True love is your soul’s recognition of its counterpoint in another. ~ Wedding Crashers

 

Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink.
But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love.
If you must steal, steal away from bad company.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.   ~from the movie “Hitch”

 

Dance as if no one is watching.
Sing as if no one is listening.
Love as if you have never been hurt.  ~ Unknown

 

What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

The greatest thing you’ll ever learn Is to love and be loved in return.

 

Great love and Great achievements involve great risk.

 

“IDA Scott Taylor wrote: ‘Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone, and do not be troubled about the future, for it has yet to come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.” – One Tree Hill: #310 · Brave New World

 

Not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

 

“Most of our life is a series of images. They pass us by like towns on the highway. But sometimes a moment stuns us as it happens. And we know that this instant is more than a fleeting image. We know that this moment, every part of it, will live on forever.”  One Tree Hill: Episode #314 · All Tomorrow’s Parties

 

Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.

 

There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days.  And, of course when faced with the unknown, most of us prefer to turn around and go back.  There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads.  But, once in a while, people push onto something better. Something found just beyond the pain of going it alone. And just beyond the bravery and courage it takes to let someone in.  Or to give someone a second chance.  Something beyond the quiet persistence of a dream.  Because, it’s only when you’re tested that you truly discover who you are.  And, it’s only when you’re tested that you discover who you can be.  The person you want to be does exist; somewhere on the other side of hard work and faith and belief. And, beyond the heartache and fear of what lies ahead.   One Tree Hill – Things I Forgot at Birth

 

Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.

 

“Some of the world’s greatest feats were accomplished by people not smart enough to know they were impossible.”

 

We lead our lives like water flowing down a hill, going more or less in one direction until we splash into something that forces us to find a new course.  ~ Memoirs of a Geisha
