I was watching some awards show today - and from a movie - let's assume this dialogue is between a father and son:

Son: *sniffle* yes
Father: Then you aren't a loser.

We lift ourselves by our thought, we climb upon our vision of ourselves. If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and of yourself.

" As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. you'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take to many pictures, laugh to much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back. Dont be afrain life your will end, be afraid that it will never begin."
"There are two ways to get past a mountain. You can go around it or you can climb over it. The first is easier but you miss the view from the top"
"It is useless to put up a sign saying "do not pick the cherry blossoms" for the wind cannot read"
"Faint heart ne'er won fair lady"
"Take what you want and pay for it"
