Beautiful thoughts

Some beautiful quotes collected from different places:

#1 If you love somebody, let them go. If they return, they were always yours. If they don’t, they never were.

#2 You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.

#3 Love is when you don’t want to go to sleep, because reality is better than a dream.

#4 Sometimes we put walls around our heart, not just to be safe from getting hurt, but to find out who cares enough to break them down. It is called love.

#5 Wanna know what i want most in life? i want someone who can

-leave me,
-live without me,
-be strong enough without me

but chooses not to..

#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.
Find the one that makes your heart smile.

#7 People come into your life for a reason, a
season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will
know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a
REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have
come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with
guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.
They may seem like a GOD send and they are. They are there for the
reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your
part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do
something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die.
Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our
desire fulfilled, their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a
SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you
something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable
amount of joy. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime
lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid
emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and
put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and
areas of your life.

#8 When one door of happiness closes, another opens;
but often times we look so long at the
closed door that we don’t see the one,
which has been opened for us.

#9 May you have…Enough happiness to make you sweet
Enough trials to make you strong
Enough sorrow to keep you human
Enough hope to make you happy
And enough money to keep you comfortable.

#10 The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch, swing with,
never saying a word and then walk away feeling like that was the best
conversation you’ve had.

#11 Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right
one so that when we finally meet the right person, we should know how to be
grateful for that gift.

#12 The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything, they
just make the most of everything that comes along the way.

#13 A sad thing about life is that when you meet someone who means a lot to
you only to find out in the end that it was never bound to be and you just
have to let go.

#14 It hurts to love someone, and not to be loved in return but what is most
painful is to love someone and never finds the courage to let the person
know how you feel.

#15 Never say goodbye when you still want to try;
Never give up when you still feel you can take it;
Never say you don’t love that person anymore when you can’t let go.

#16 There are things you love to hear, but you would never hear it from the
person whom you would like to hear it from, but don’t be deaf to hear it
from the person who says it with his heart.

#17 Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they’ll love you
back. Don’t expect love in return, just wait for it to grow in their hearts
but if it doesn’t, be content it grew in yours.

#18 Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.

#19 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.

#20 The brightest future will always
be based on a forgotten past;
you can’t go forward in life until
you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

#21 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.

#22 Always put yourself in other’s shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it
probably does hurt the person too.

#23 Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have
searched and those who have tried. For only they can appreciate the
importance of people who have touched their lives.

#24 When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life to the fullest so that when you die, you’re smiling and
everyone around you is crying . . .

#25 Love comes to those who still hope even though they’ve been
disappointed, to those who still believe even though they’ve been betrayed,
need to love those who still love, even though they’ve been hurt before.

#26 Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.

#27 Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own.

#28 Life doesn’t require that we be the best, only that we try our best.

#29 The only true gift is a portion of yourself.

#30 Life Is Not The Breaths You Take. It is The Moments Which Take Your Breathe Away.

#31 The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves
and not to twist them with our own image, otherwise we love only the
reflection of ourselves we find in them.

#32 In life, there are only lessons, no failures……

#33 It is your attitude more than your aptitude that determines your altitude.

#34 Lord, don’t move that mountain,
But give me the strength to climb
Lord don’t take away the stumbling blocks
But lead me all around…

#35 Loving is not just looking at each other, it’s looking together in the same direction.

#36 When you want to see how rich you are, don’t count your assets, just drop a tear and look around at the number of hands that are outstretched to catch it..

And, lastly, something I got as an SMS and touched me a lot:

“We live in a funny world because pizza reaches home faster than the ambulance…”

    #10 The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch, swing with,

    conversation you’ve had.

    — This is 100 percent true…most bus rides home in the evening are so… Tired after a day me and my friend sit and smetimes doze and when his stop comes we flash wide grins say “bye..cia tomorrow da”…like we ‘ve had the best time!

    #22 Always put yourself in other’s shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it

    All these quotes, remind me of a post, that I had penned down (or rather it was an excerpt) in my blog Reflections πŸ™‚

    Life becomes so beautiful, after reading such things, doesn’t it ? I don’t know, all on a sudden, these things make you want to realize the very small pleasures in life, they make you want to recognize, the people, who actually need you, who actually deserve your company…Takes the wraps off the fact that Life is all about acceptance…Accepting, things that come our way, not going way beyond our reach to attain something..This holds very true in cases involving love, be it between a guy and girl, or between friends, or between any two people, for that matter…

    “#3 Love is when you don’t want to go to sleep, because reality is better than a dream.”

    I somehow don’t feel like agreeing..At times reality is better than a dream, yes, but most of the time, a reverie is better than reality, because reality is like a double-edged sword πŸ™‚ In a reverie, you are assured of a happy ending…but as far as reality is concerned, that assurance is absent…I believe in visiting Utopia, on and off, but not dwelling there forever πŸ™‚ It might make me want to eschew reality πŸ™‚

    I loved the following quotes : 1,4,5,10 (obviously :)), 11,13 (I’ve come across this quote before and everytime I read it, i somehow become emotional, for absolutely no reason :)), 16,22,23,26,31 and 35 πŸ™‚

    Please try including some beautiful pictures, along with this post..Makes it even more effective πŸ™‚

    Sathej

  4. Harish

    I found the last one darkly funny…

  5. Sathej

    #1,2,8,9,10,11,12 are very true.
    #3 is debatable.Utopia is very desirable as Nithya says.I, for one, love it.
    #5,6 are nice.
    #7 set me thinking.Deeply philosophical.
    #13 moved me too.
    #14,15,16 are highly relevant to everyone.
    The rest #17-36,I’ll read and comment.
    The last one,well,ironical indeed!Something which we all have to be mmore worried about than appreciate as a joke.
    You really made me think with this post.Many of them have deep currents and I would like to comment only after enough reflection.Keep them coming.
