Quotes

  • “Anyone who has a continuous smile on his face conceals a toughness that is almost frightening.”
  • You can’t be happy all the time. Sometimes you will be side but if you always have a smile on your face, it shows how strong you truly are.
  • “There are many things in your heart you can never tell to another person. They are you, your private joys and sorrows, and you can never tell them. You cheapen yourself, the inside of yourself, when you tell them.”
  • You can’t trust anyone enough to tell them your feelings because the could always go and tell people. When people tell their feelings and someone tells people, it makes them mean less.
  • "Life would be so wonderful if we only knew what to do with it."
  • You never know what exactly to do with your life. You just live one day at a time.
