Wise Words.

Hi All!

There have obviously been thousands and thousands of words written on all of the following topics that I have listed below.  All sorts of stories, quotes, words, poems, etc exist in relation to each of these things.

However, I have come up with just one quote or passage that I personally would affix to each of these topics (and this was no easy feat ;-) try it yourself ha-ha).  Though for one of them, I admit that I cheated and used two passages/quotes.

I hope some of these words might inspire you, or be thought provoking, or at the very least, a fun read regarding all of these important life topics.

Worthwhile friends


Giving up someone you love



“I guess by now I should know enough about loss to realize that you never really stop missing someone-you just learn to live around the huge gaping hole of their absence.” 

Taking Chances

Missing Someone

“Missing someone enlightens how the person means to you and broadens the feelings shared.”

“I like to see people reunited, maybe that's a silly thing, but what can I say, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can't tell fast enough, the ears that aren't big enough, the eyes that can't take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.” 



Lost Love

“I know that's what people say-- you'll get over it. I'd say it, too. But I know it's not true. Oh, you'll be happy again, never fear. But you won't forget. Every time you fall in love it will be because something in the man reminds you of him.” 
-A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (book)


Bad Friends/People

Great People

Having Dreams and Goals



When you choose a life partner, you’re choosing a lot of things, including your parenting partner and someone who will deeply influence your children, your eating companion for about 20,000 meals, your travel companion for about 100 vacations, your primary leisure time and retirement friend, your career therapist, and someone whose day you’ll hear about 18,000 times.
Intense shit.
So given that this is by far the most important thing in life to get right, how is it possible that so many good, smart, otherwise-logical people end up choosing a life partnership that leaves them dissatisfied and unhappy?


Making Changes

Trying New Things



Life, in general
