"Stop now, right now, and look around you. This is your place in the labyrinth. There is no place else you need to be. See with eyes that aren't fixed on goals, or focused on flaws. Your are part of the endless, winding beauty. And as you learn to see the dappled loveliness of your life, as your new eyes help you begin loving the labyrinth, you will slowly come to realize that the labyrinth was made solely for the purpose of loving you."
-----The Labyrinth of Life by Martha Beck-----
"It's true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That's all. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength or love. Don't give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful."

"Words have special powers. The power to create smiles or frowns. The power to generate laughs or tears. The power to lift up or put down. The power to motivate or de-motivate. The power to teach good or evil. The power to express love or hate. The power to give or take. The power to heal or harm. Choose your words carefully."
------A. D. Williams-----

"EVERY NIGHT BEFORE YOU GO TO BED WRITE DOWN THREE THINGS GOOD THAT HAPPENED TO YOU THAT DAY. THAT'S PRETTY MUCH ALL IT TAKES TO GET A HAPPINESS BOOST OVER TIME."
"The most beautiful people we have known are those that have known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

"When you love someone, You love the person as they are, and not as you'd like them to be."
"When you start to really know someone, all his physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in his energy, recognize the scent of his skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That's why you can't fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and body but not your heart. And that's why, when you really connect with a person's inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant."
On a lighter note.....
"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find some one whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and find mutual weirdness and call it love."
