I like living. i have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all i still know that just to be alive is a grand thing."

Agatha christie

"Faith is walking face-first and full-speed into the dark. If we truly knew all the answers in advance as to the meaning of life and the nature of God and the destiny of our souls, our belief would not be a leap of faith and it would not be a courageous act of humanity; it would just be… a prudent insurance policy."

Elizabeth Gilbert

"Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first."

Mark Twain

"I have a simple philosophy: Fill what’s empty. Empty what’s full. Scratch where it itches."

Alice Roosevelt Longworth

Pra você guardei o amor
Que aprendi vendo meus pais
O amor que tive e recebi
E hoje posso dar livre e feliz

“The best thing about dreams is that fleeting moment, when you are between asleep and awake, when you don’t know the difference between reality and fantasy.”


A strong girl keeps her stuff in line-and with tears running, she still manages to spit the simple words “I’m fine.”


The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

Bertrand Russell

Most of us live our whole lives without having an adventure to call our own. What is any life without the pursuit of a dream?

Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another


Vem cá meu bem, me descola um carinho
Eu sou néném, só sossego com beijinho...

Rota Lee - Lança Perfume

When we meet someone and fall in love, we have a sense that the whole universe is on our side. And yet if something goes wrong, there is nothing left! How is it possible for the beauty that was there only minutes before to vanish so quickly? Life moves very fast. It rushes from heaven to hell in a matter of seconds.

I’d rather have a moment of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.

In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.


I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face, they don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it.


Canção Excêntrica

Ando à procura de espaço
para o desenho da vida.
Em números me embaraço
e perco sempre a medida.
Se penso encontrar saída,
em vez de abrir um compasso,
protejo-me num abraço
e gero uma despedida.

Se volto sobre meu passo,
é distância perdida.

Meu coração, coisa de aço,
começa a achar um cansaço
esta procura de espaço
para o desenho da vida.
Já por exausta e descrida
não me animo a um breve traço:
- saudosa do que não faço,
- do que faço, arrependida.

Cecília Meireles

I have to believe that when things are bad, I can change them.


I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character!


My work, my hope, my love, my courage, all these things keep my head above water and keep me from complaining.

To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.

Arundhati Roy

"May the sun bring you new energy by day
May the moon softly restore you by night
May the rain wash away your worries
May the breeze blow new strength into your being
May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life."

Apache Blessing

It’s a lie to think that you’re not good enough. It’s a lie to think that you’re not worth anything.


I love romance. I’m a sucker for it. I love it so much. It’s pathetic.
Drew Barrymore

If you always do what you’ve always done, then you’ll always get what you always got.



There’s only so much waiting a person can endure until they start thinking that maybe nothing exciting will ever happen to them. Like, EVER.


Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.


Many things about tomorrow I don’t seem to understand; But I know Who holds tomorrow, and I know Who holds my hand

"It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it."

Lou Holtz

"Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway."

Mary Kay Ash

If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart, I’ll always be with you.
Winnie the Pooh

At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe us when we say there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what seems to be a series of unfortunate events, may in fact, be the fist steps of a journey.
Violet Baudelaire

If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away. If he doesn’t want you, nothing can make him stay. Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior. Allow your intuition, or spirit, to save you from heartache.
Oprah Winfrey
