In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.

I love you, not for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Stronger than lover's love is lover's hate. Incurable, in each, the wounds they make.

 image quote by Maya Angelou

The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself.

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.

Wherever you are, whatever you do, be in love.

Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.

For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.

Courage: the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.

Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.

 image quote by Rumi

Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.

Waste not fresh tears over old griefs.

Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.

If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love.

Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.

If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.

 image quote by Rumi

If you eyes are opened, you'll see the things worth seeing.

We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.

The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention.

It is easy to live for others, everybody does. I call on you to live for yourselves.

Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.

The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them.

You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.

 image quote by Rumi

Your heart knows the way. Run in that direction.

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

If you are always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be.

If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. And if they don't, they never were.

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.

Public opinion is no more than this: what people think that other people think.

 image quote by Rabindranath Tagore

If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars.

Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.

You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies with in us.

Change will never happen when people lack the ability and courage to see themselves for who they are.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.

 image quote by Euripides

One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.

We acquire the strength we have overcome.

Words will not fail when the matter is well considered.

Life is a journey that must be traveled no matter how bad the roads and accommodations.

Educate yourself. Learn everything you can and then let knowledge yield to kindness.

The strongest man in the world is he who stands most alone.

A thousand words will not leave so deep an impression as one deed.

 image quote by Maya Angelou

I would like to be known as an intelligent woman, a courageous woman, a loving woman, a woman who teaches by being.

The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things.

Be still my heart; thou hast known worse than this.

The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.

Surviving is important. Thriving is elegant.

Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.

I am as bad as the worst, but, thank God, I am as good as the best.

 image quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

To be yourself in a world that in constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.

Forever is composed of nows.
