Shahnawaz Khan - yourself

"The person in life that you will always be with the most, is yourself. Because even when you are with others, you are still with yourself. When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself, laying in bed at night you are with yourself, walking down the street in the sunlight you are with yourself. What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is yourself, and it's your responsibility to be that person you want to be with. I know I want to spend my life with a person who knows how to let things go, who's not full of hate, who's able to smile and be carefree. So that's who I have to be." ~Shahnawaz Khan

Jason Versey - stain

""Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me.” This is a lie. What we say matters. The unkind things we communicate can soil the best of relationships; even with the deepest of regrets…what lingers is a stain of hurt that may fade but will never truly go away. The wounding words we say are like feathers released in a harsh wind, once said; we will never get them back." ~Jason Versey, Jason Versey, A Walk with Prudence

OTHERS:

"Friendship is a priceless gift, that cannot be bought or sold, but it's value is far greater than a mountain made of gold. For gold is cold and lifeless, it can neither see nor hear. And in time of trouble it is powerless to cheer. It has no ears to listen, no heart to understand, it cannot bring you comfort or reach out a helping hand. So when you ask God for a gift, be thankful if he sends, not diamonds, pearls,or riches, but the love of real true friends." ~Natalie Love

Maybe One Day - out of love

"In order to live a long satisfied life full of contentment, happiness, and peace one must be willing to do the small things and the big things, but all things done out of love.
