Somebody sent me an email with the following quotes so thought I would  share them  with you all.



Quote One:
When people cut you down,
Or talk behind your back,
Remember they took the time out of their pathetic lives
To think about you


Quote two:
You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

Quote three:
Forgiveness is not something we do for other people.
We do it for ourselves to get well and move on.


Quote four:
When someone says you've changed  it simply means:
You've stopped living their way


Quote five:
Always be yourself
Never try to hide who you are
The only shame is having shame
Always stand up for what you belive in.
Always question qhat other people TELL you.
Never regret the past. It's  a waste of time.
There's a reason for everything,very mistake, moment of weakness, every terrible thing that has happened to you.
Grow from it.
The only way you can  ever get respect is when you show others that you respect yourself and most importantly
do your thing and never apologise for being you.



Lastly:
A smile is the most beautiful curve on a woman's body.

So, smile everyone. Try to have a great day, today and every day. :)

By the way, I have not added the author  as this was not include in the email ???. So if anyone does know of the original writers  please be so kind as to enlighten  us  all :)

Achievement seems to be connected with action.
Successful men and women keep moving.
They make mistakes, but they don't quit.
- Conrad Hilton

Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence.
Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear.
Perhaps the action you take will be successful;
perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow.
But any action is better than no action at all.
- Norman Vincent Peale

Forget your personal tragedy. We are all bitched from the start and you especially have to be hurt like hell before you can write seriously. But when you get the damned hurt, use it-don't cheat with it.
-Ernest Hemingway

Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
-Ernest Hemingway

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.
