Don’t allow your mind to tell your heart what to do. The mind gives up easily— ― Paulo Coelho (via justbesplendid)
You don’t love someone because they’re perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they’re not.— ― Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper (via justbesplendid)
No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.— ― Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby (via justbesplendid)
People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.— Martin Luther King Jr. (via justbesplendid)
