Do not give up and do not give in, For hope is there to make you win. Whether through trouble or through pain, The lesson should never be in vain. Starting through the night, It might feel you have lost sight. But behold just a few moments more, And light will break through with a roar. Do not give up and do not give in, For hope is there to make you win.
Some people can just say one word and light up a dream, and make roses bloom; with just a smile in their eyes they invite us to travel to faraway places, on a magical journey. Some people, just by offering their hand shatter our solitude, set the table, serve homemade soup, and bring in flowers; just by holding a guitar they can create a friendly symphony. Some people, just by opening their mouth, can touch the far reaches of our soul, nourish the blossoms, invent dreams, make wine sing and make you fall in love with life.
If you’re ever lying on a beach with 80 billion grains of sand beneath you, 700 thousand ocean waves before you, 60 million stars stretched out above you, and you’re still not at all impressed, I want you to think about this: The light you see reflecting from the stars is over one million years old.

She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied.... Read more »
Love is the people you hug and never want to let go. The people you haven't seen in years but they haven't changed at all. The people who give you more than you than you give to them. The people who truly understand who you are. The ones you live for. It's the people in your photographs with genuine light shining through their eyes and smile. The people who take your breath away. Those are the people to devote your time and thoughts to. Not the ones who hurt you and don't make time for you.
One day a good man saw an old lady, stranded on the side of the road, but even in the dim light of day, he could see she needed help. So he pulled up in front of the lady who had got a Mercedes. Even with the smile on his face, she was worried. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He didn’t look safe; he looked poor and hungry.
