01. It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay and work on the problem longer than most other people do.


02. If you can DREAM it, you can DO it.


03. Accept what people offer. Drink their milkshakes and take their love.


04. Promise yourself to think only of the best, to work only for the best, and expect only the best results.


05. To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself.


06. Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.


07. Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.


08. A Friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyways !


09. It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.


10. If your friend jump off of a bridge, would you follow after them to show your devotion ? No. You would be at the bottom to catch them safely.


11. Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.


12. Friends are the flowers in the garden of life !


13. The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.


14. There are big ships and small ships. But the best ship of all is our friendship.


15. Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art … It has no survival value on its own; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.


16. When you look around and your world is crumbling, or when you think no one loves you, your best friend is the one who runs to you.


17. It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone and a day to love someone.  But it takes a lifetime to forget someone.


18. A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be falling down.


19. If you love someone tell them, because fragile hearts are often broken by words left unspoken.


20. If love isn’t a game, then why are there so many players ?


21. I used to have an open mind about things but my brains kept falling out of my head.


22. To the world, you may be one person; but to one person, you ARE the world !


23. Love the heart that hurts you. But never hurt the heart that loves you.


24. Better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness.


25. It’s funny that those things your kids did when you were younger got on your nerves, and now as you are older, seem so cute when your grandchildren do them.




26. A real friend is someone who takes a winter vacation on a sun-drenched beach and doesn't send you a postcard.


27. The heart of a fool is in his mouth, but the mouth of the wise man is in his heart.


28. The mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work unless it’s open.


29. A single moment of understanding can flood a whole life with meaning.


30. I would not waste my life in friction when it could be turned into momentum.


31. Try to hide the bad qualities of others and our Creator will hide yours in the day of judgment.


32. A wise person does at once, what a fool does at last. Both do the same thing; only at different times.


33. Don’t let your victories go to your head, or your failures go to your heart.


34. You will turn over many a futile new leaf until you learn we must all write on scratched-out pages.


35. A man is too apt to forget that in this world he cannot have everything. A choice is all that is left to him.


36. Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.


37. The thing that weighs most heavily in the balance of good deeds is a good attitude.


38. The best things in life are not things at all.


39. A smooth sea never made a skilled mariner.


40. Don't give false evidence against someone else without good reason, or say misleading things about him.


41. Patience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gears.


42. Take my advice ― I'm not using it.


43. The glass is neither half full nor half empty. The size of the glass could be a more appropriate question.


44. When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President. Today, I'm beginning to believe this.


45. When a man tells you that he got rich through hard work, ask him, "Whose ?'"


46. In democracy, it's your vote that counts. In feudalism, it's your count that votes.


47. I really don't want to make a monkey out of you. Why should I take all the credit for the one thing you've done perfectly yourself ?


48. Don't join dangerous cults: Practice safe sects.


49. It is not that I trust you to do the job well. It is because I am too lazy to do it myself.


50. 
Wherever smart people work, doors are unlocked.





Which of these can you relate to ?

These are food for thoughts. Although, I'll argue #9. It's not easier to forgive an enemy than a friend. When you're someone like myself, who holds grudges, I will hate that enemy my entire life. LOL! I have lowered expectations in trusting my enemies because I expect for them to screw me over rather than having a backstabbing friend.
