A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.

Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. Sometimes the people who are thousands of miles away from you can make you feel better than the people right beside you.

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet, understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving, it is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. Love is life, if you miss love, you miss life. Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives  you courage. Love is when he gives you a piece of your soul, that you never knew was missing. The best love is the kind that awakens the soul, that makes you reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.

I’m worthy of my words, don’t miss out by curving me. Doors open for those who wait, they close in your face when you respond too late.
