"Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from negativity."
"And silence, like darkness, can be kind; it, too, is a language."
"Sometimes people don’t understand the promises they’re making when they make them."
"One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying."
"You must learn to let go. Release the stress. You were never in control anyway."
"Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become."
"What you’ve done becomes the judge of what you’re going to do - especially in other people’s minds. When you’re traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road."
William Least Heat-Moon
"A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, dream big, laugh a lot and realize how blessed you are"
"Promise yourself to be strong, that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side as long as you are true to the best that is in you."
"I was smiling yesterday, I am smiling today and I will smile tomorrow. Simply because life is too short to cry for anything."
