“…meaningful achievement, lasting success – that doesn’t happen in an instant. It’s not just about the twist of fate, or the lucky break, or the sudden stroke of genius. Rather, it’s about the daily efforts, the choices large and small that add up over time. It’s about the skills you build, the knowledge you accumulate, the energy you invest in every task, no matter how trivial or menial it may seem at the time.”

President Barack Obama

Give yourself more credit. You deserve it.

Love doesn’t happen in an instant. It creeps up on you and then it turns your life upside down. It colors your waking moments, and fills your dreams. You begin to walk on air and see life in brilliant new shades. But it also brings with it a sweet agony, a delicious torture.

Vikas Swarup

Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn’t fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it’s comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away.

Carrie Bradshaw

No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes. It’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends- they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything- they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them- actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re going to fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.
Marilyn Monroe

Sure, it sucked to be lost, but I`d long ago realized I preferred it to depending on anyone else to get me where I needed to go. That was the thing about being alone, in theory or in principle. Whatever happened- good, bad, or anywhere in between- it was always, if nothing else, all your own.
Sarah Dessen

I want to learn from traveling. I want the opportunity to prove myself. I want to learn about myself, and, if possible, I want the whole world to know my name.


You can never have too much sky. You can fall asleep and wake up drunk on sky, and sky can keep you safe when you are sad. Here there is too much sadness and not enough sky. Butterflies too are few and so are flowers and most things that are beautiful.

When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.
Shauna Niequist

Sometimes I just drown myself in sadness and pain.
And sometimes the paranoia just kills me

I want a boy best friend. One that won’t fall for me. One that I won’t fall for. One that will always be there for me. One that I can call and talk to about everything. One that will tell me they love me. One that will go out of their way to make me smile.
I have this boy.

Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.

As circunstâncias entre as quais você vive determinam sua reputação. A verdade em que você acredita determina seu caráter. A reputação é o que acham que você é. O caráter é o que você realmente é... A reputação é o que você tem quando chega a uma comunidade nova. O caráter é o que você tem quando vai embora... A reputação é feita em um momento. O caráter é construído em uma vida inteira... A reputação torna você rico ou pobre. O caráter torna você feliz ou infeliz... A reputação é o que os homens dizem de você junto à sua sepultura. O caráter é o que os anjos dizem de você diante de Deus.

I came here with a load and it feels so much lighter now I've met you...
And honey you should know that I could never go on without you.
