Don’t Give Up

Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.
Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes
the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life
may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.
It matters that you don’t just give up. ~ Stephen Hawking

Life

On this road called life,
you have to take the good with the bad,
smile with the sad, love what you got,
and remember what you had.
Always forgive, but never forget,
learn from your mistakes,
but never forget people change.
Things go wrong.
But just remember, the ride goes on.

Forgiveness

Anyone can hold a grudge, but it takes a person with character to forgive.
When you forgive, you release yourself from a painful burden.
Forgiveness doesn’t mean what happened was OK, and it doesn’t mean that person should still be welcome in your life.
It just means you have made peace with the pain, and are ready to let it go.

The Gift

If I could give you any gift,
I would give you love and laughter.
A peaceful heart
A special dream
And joy for ever after.

End of Life

At the end of life, what really matters
is not what we bought but what we built;
not what we got but what we shared;
not our competence but our character;
and not our success, but our significance.
Live a life that matters. Live a life of love.
