It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not.— Andre Gide
Colorful Something You Love quotations
Happiness is that you have three things: something you do, something you love, and something you aspire to.
Every time there are losses, there are choices to be made.
You choose to live your losses as passages to anger, blame, hatred, depression and resentment, or you choose to let these losses be passages to something new, something wider, and deeper.
Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something- and it is only such love that can know freedom.
Love is not only something you feel. It's something you do.
Wherever you find real love, you will also find humility.
Remember something: humility is not a weak and timid quality. Too often we feel that humility is a sign of weakness. This is not so. It is the sign of strength and security.
To love someone is nothing, to be loved by someone is something, to love someone who loves you is everything.
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.
In those perfect moments you find beauty you never knew existed.
You find yourself and you friends all over again, you find something to fight for, something to love. Something to show the world.
It’s at the heart of everything we struggle with in life: longing to be valuable, to be accepted, to be prized, to be worth something to somebody, to have a life that matters, and God’s saying ‘You matter! I didn’t make anyone else like you. You’re not a reprint or a lithograph. You’re a one-of-a-kind, original creation of God.
And you tried to change, didn't you? Closed your mouth more.
Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake... You can't make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.
You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.
If you’re passionate about something then it will definitely work out for you.
You should never stop believing in something, and you shouldn’t listen to anyone who tells you otherwise. Never give up on something you love.
You can always-always-give something, even if it's a simple act of kindness! If everyone were to give in this way and didn't scrimp on kindly words, there would be much more love and justice in the world!
Love isn't something you find. Love is something that finds you.
Find something you love and do it better than everyone else.
Once you experience being loved when you are unworthy, being forgiven when you did something wrong, that moves you into non-dual thinking. You move from what I call meritocracy, quid pro quo thinking, to the huge ocean of grace, where you stop counting or calculating.
I honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at something you hate.
The journey has to be based on passion.
Put yourself in something you love to do. If you love what you do you're able to dedicate yourself, overcome obstacles.
Love is not only something you feel, it is something you do.
True love has no hiding place, it’s not something you just put away.
Love means giving something you don't have to someone who doesn't want it.
The wonderful thing about praying is that you leave a world of not being able to do something, and enter God’s realm where everything is possible. He specializes in the impossible. Nothing is too great for His almighty power. Nothing is too small for His love.
Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything that it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.
You may say, 'God doesn't hate anybody.
God is love.' No, my friend. You need to understand something. Jesus Christ taught, the prophets taught, the apostles taught this: that apart from the grace of God revealed in Jesus Christ our Lord the only thing left for you is the wrath, the fierce anger of God because of your rebellion and your sin.
Love is something you and I must have.
We must have it because our spirit feeds upon it. We must have it because without it we become weak and faint. Without love our self-esteem weakens. Without it our courage fails. Without love we can no longer look out confidently at the world.
The hardest thing is to give up something you love, for the sake of Allah.
But remember Allah never takes without giving something better.
The secret to success: find something you love to do so much, you can’t wait for the sun to rise to do it all over again.
Never give up on something you love
That's what love does - it pursues blindly, unflinchingly, and without end.
When you go after something you love, you'll do anything it takes to get it, even if it costs everything.
If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet;
how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.
You should follow your passions, you know? And you should make sure you do something you love. That's all I've learned, is that if you're doing something you love you'll work harder at it and make it happen, I can promise you that.
Real loss is only possible when you love something more than you love yourself.
I just want people to feel like they can achieve something great in their lives.
We all go through rough times, but love is the antidote. You've got to dream and just believe in yourself. And if you believe, you will achieve it.
When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.
