    "Never say goodbye if you still want to try.
    Never give up if you still feel you can go on.
    Never say you don't love a person anymore if you can't let go.
    Love comes to those who still hope although they've been disappointed,
    To those who still believe, although they've been betrayed,
    To those who still need to love, although they've been hurt before,
    And to those who have the courage and faith to build trust again."

    Yesterday is Tomorrow

    "Is tomorrow just another day?
    For yesterday can't last.
    Can we peer into the future by studies of the past?
    Will things remain as they are, we wonder what will be?
    What the future holds for us, we have no way to see.
    Whether we're content with life, or long for it to change.
    Time will satisfy them both for nothing remains the same."

    ".....no matter where life takes you, big cities, small towns, you'll inevitably come across small minds. People who think that they're better than you are. People who think that material things, or being pretty or popular automatically makes you a worth while human being.....none of these things matter unless you have strength of character, integrity, sense of pride, and if you're lucky enough to have any one of these things....don't ever sell them. Don't ever sell out. So when you meet a person for the first time, please don't judge them by their station of life, because, who knows, that person just might end up being your best friend."

    "Stop and consider! Life is but a day;
    A fragile dewdrop on its perilous way
    From a tree's summit; a poor Indian's sleep
    While his boat hastens to the monstrous steep
    Of Montmorenci. Why so sad a moan?
    Life is the rose's hope while yet unblown;
    The reading of an ever-changing tale;
    The light uplifting of a maiden's veil;
    A pigeon tumbling in clear summer air;
    A laughing schoolboy, without grief or care,
    Riding the springy branches of an elm."
